Is your face telling tales on you? Stress, sun damage and the passing of time all contribute to making us look a hell of a lot older than we feel. Expertly-administered dermal fillers and wrinkle-smoothing treatments can make you look refreshed and worry-free.

There’s no need to go under the knife and face weeks (or months) of healing downtime to roll back the years. Injectables, such as dermal fillers, can give you natural results without the upheaval and price tag of a surgical facelift.

All the info you really need about fillers

The most important thing is to find a trusted, experienced, fully-qualified aesthetic practitioner. At Avance Clinic we work with Highfield Aesthetics, which is run by Aman Gahunia, a qualified pharmacist prescriber. Safety is our top priority.

The dermal fillers we use are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced by the human body. They hydrate the skin, treat lines and also reshape the face, so they can be used in the lips, the cheeks and the chin. We believe these are safer and more effective than some other types of facial fillers.

It’s important to find out about the aftercare that your clinic provides. We ensure that all of our clients have an initial consultation where a medical history is taken. We will never perform treatments if our clients are planning to head off on holiday within the next fortnight. We always book you in for a two-week follow up appointment to make sure you’re happy with the results. We’re always available to answer any questions after your treatment.

The best way to ensure your fillers look natural is to take advice from an expert practitioner who has been getting great results for other clients.

All the info about wrinkle-smoothing and anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections relax specific facial muscles. They can be used on those lines between the eyebrows, which make us look as if we’re permanently frowning, as well as forehead lines and ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes.

Our skin starts to age and we start to lose collagen, the protein that gives our skin structure, from about the age of 25. Many clients begin to use injectable beauty treatments from then onwards. Injectables can gently smooth wrinkles and stop them getting deeper in the future.

As with fillers, it’s important to do your research and choose a medically-trained professional who will take the time to get a full medical history and talk to you about what you want to achieve and what to expect.
