WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are widely recognised as a popular and effective treatment to improve your facial appearance with immediately visible results. They soften the lines, creases and hollowing that occur naturally as we age by plumping the skin to add volume and definition.
Delivered as a single treatment, further maintenance appointments will be required. The timing of these will be determined by how quickly the body ‘s metabolism breaks down the filler and ranges from 6 to 14 months.
Nu-lux Clinic offers Revolax, Epitique (e.p.t.q) dermal fillers and other brands. With a minimal recovery time, they are the perfect introduction to the world of aesthetic treatments.
Once the gel has been injected it is re-absorbed by the body helping to make it one of the safest procedures available.
Areas suitable for treatment: Lips, Cheek, Chin and Jaw
This is one of the most requested areas of the face to be treated and the ratio of Hyaluronic acid used is sometimes higher in this area
Increase lip volume
Dermal Fillers soften the appearance of thinning lips often caused by ageing, helping to improve confidence.
Suitable for all ages, over 18 and especially those with a less defined lip line.
Many clients report an increased hydration of the lips as an additional benefit of their improved skin tone.
This treatment helps to restore lost volume in the cheek area, typically presenting as a hollowing of the cheeks. It results in a lifted appearance and is effective in softening the lines that run from the outer corner of the nose to the mouth.
Where the cheekbones protrude or are uneven, dermal fillers will result in a smoother and softer appearance.
CHIN & JAW FILLERS.
Dermal fillers add volume to those areas of the face affected by reduced collagen which can appear bumpy and less smooth.
Commonly referred to as the jowls, the appearance is often saggy and less youthful. Dermal fillers help to restore the fullness achieving a smoother and plumper line.
Repeated 6-18 months dependent on individual metabolism
Avoid alcohol and caffeine 48 hours pre and post treatment
Avoid the following for 48 hours post treatment: Sauna, Sun Beds, Hot showers and exercise and any other facial treatments such as massage

THE LATEST FROM NU-LUX.
Are dermal fillers painful?
A numbing cream is used on the lips to reduce discomfort. The filler itself contains Lydocaine which also helps to reduce pain.
How long do dermal fillers last?
This will depend on how quickly a person’s metabolism breaks down the filler. The maximum amount of time could be just under two years, but 6-10 months is common for most people.
Are there any side effects?
Some tingling or numbness is common at the time of your appointment. Swelling or redness is usual and will disappear after several days. Bruising is less common but can occur. Ice packs or applying arnica will reduce it. You will receive a post-treatment advice guide to take home.
