Dr Darren McKeown offers award-winning anti-ageing wrinkle filler treatments in Glasgow using HA fillers.

Dermal fillers were initially developed to simply fill in fine lines and wrinkles on the facial skin. However, as our understanding of the ageing process advanced and became more sophisticated, how we use these fillers changed to focus on more complex volume restoration treatments.

Treatments using fillers now focus on strategically restoring lost volume to the face instead of just filling in frown lines or forehead wrinkles.

As treatments have become more complex, it is easy to forget the basic uses of fillers to simply reduce or remove facial lines and wrinkles. Done well, filler injections can have a transformative effect on the facial appearance and result in overall younger looking skin — which is why it is one of our most popular treatments.

THE ART OF INJECTING WRINKLE FILLERS

Wrinkle Fillers

Dermal fillers have come a long way since their inception.

One of the reasons using fillers to soften mouth lines has fallen out of favour is that there was a period in which excessive use of lip fillers and dermal fillers around the mouth became fashionable. The result was a smooth complexion and skin but one that appeared bulky and did not always look natural. To avoid creating this unnatural look, judicious use of filler is required.

This is where the experience and judgement of the practitioner are critical.

The key is using the smallest amount of the transparent filler gel at just the right level within the skin to optimally correct wrinkles and reduce lines without weighing the tissue down and creating the ‘bottom heavy, smooth, but odd’ look. This takes years of experience to perfect, learning to respect the limits of the filler, and knowing when to stop.

When you book your dermal filler treatment at our clinic, we ensure the perfect filler treatment for your unique needs.

DERMAL FILLERS VS BOTOX TREATMENTS

Wrinkle Fillers

When you choose from our non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatments like dermal fillers and Botox, you are getting an anti-ageing solution with minimal pain and downtime.

Botox is also known as wrinkle relaxing injections because it aims to relax the muscles in the face so that the skin and wrinkles can smooth out. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are part of an anti-wrinkle treatment whereby hyaluronic acid is strategically injected to reduce fine lines, stimulate collagen production, and over time, deliver a rejuvenated appearance. So while fillers and Botox are both safe and effective when it comes to filling wrinkles, dermal fillers tend to have more long-lasting results than Botox treatments.

Dermal fillers are also more effective at reducing static wrinkles — the lines that are visible when the face is relaxed. Botox reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which are visible during facial movements such as squinting and frowning.

Overall, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are better at restoring lost mass in the face and adding a youthful appearance with definition to the contours and shape of the face.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE

Filler treatments are so much more than just anti-ageing injections. When done correctly, it can restore facial volume, add definition, and enhance natural beauty while keeping your skin hydrated from the deep dermis up. Fortunately, the process is quick and easy.

 

The first step in the dermal fillers procedure is to ensure your maximal comfort through anaesthesia. There are two ways we can do this:

The first option is to use a numbing cream that numbs the skin’s surface. With this approach, there is still some discomfort associated with the injections, although it is more comfortable due to the partial numbing effect of the cream. Most people tolerate this well.

The second option is to inject a local anaesthetic within the mouth, which makes the entire mouth numb — like at the dentist. This makes the anti-wrinkle injections painless, but you will have to wait a couple of hours afterwards for the numbness to wear off.

The option you choose will depend on your pain threshold and personal preferences.

The anti-wrinkle treatment begins when the anaesthesia takes effect.

The procedure involves transparent dermal filler gel made up of hyaluronic acid (HA) — a natural substance in the body’s connective tissues.

Dermal fillers mimic the skin’s natural HA and are a good choice for lip filler treatments, deep facial lines, acne scars, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, perioral lines, and even crow’s feet and glabellar lines. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar in the body, fillers are completely safe, effective and temporary.

Rather than performing a few larger injections, my technique for dermal fillers involves making a large number of small injections with a very fine needle. While this takes more time to perform, the ultra-fine needle allows me to be much more precise in sculpting the final outcome while also minimising the total amount of filler injected.

This technique allows me to quickly restore the skin’s lost volume and add definition while preventing the bulky, unnatural look.

Immediately after the treatment, the area will look red and inflamed due to the number of anti-wrinkle injections, even if the local anaesthetic is yet to wear off. The redness will normally calm down within a few days, although most people can conceal it with the use of make-up.

With my injection technique, I can usually treat this area without bruising for most people — although if you do develop some bruising, it can be covered up with make-up until it disappears.

We use the Juvéderm range of hyaluronic acid fillers for our anti-wrinkle treatments. Juvederm Ultra is a new generation of wrinkle fillers that instantly fills out fine facial lines, giving the skin a more rejuvenated and younger-looking appearance.

For a simple procedure that adds volume naturally, choose Dr Darren McKeown for your hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How Much Do Anti-Wrinkle Fillers Cost?

The use of dermal filler ranges from the top to the bottom of the face. It can be used on frown lines, forehead lines, smile lines and laughter lines, to enhance lips, reduce wrinkles at the mouth corners, fill crow’s feet, and more.

Therefore, the cost will ultimately depend on how much filler you need, which depends on the areas you are looking to treat.

Typical costs for these fillers range from £300 to £900 to treat the area around the mouth. The cost will differ for Botox or wrinkle relaxing in Glasgow. Results typically last a year or more when it comes to re-filling this area in the future.

It is rare to use the same amount of filler for the second and subsequent treatments. Only half of the original amount is usually required. You could choose to only focus on the mouth area, with lip fillers and dermal fillers for nasolabial and marionette lines, or you could rejuvenate the skin all over your face, from your forehead lines down to your mouth.

Are There Any Other Non-Surgical Treatments That Help In This Area?

Our manufactured HA filler is one of the most popular treatments for reducing facial lines and replenishing the skin’s lost mass in the facial area. It is a completely safe treatment that uses a moisture-retaining compound that exists naturally in the skin to add volume.

Depending on whether we’re treating static lines or dynamic wrinkles and how much of a plumping effect is needed, some clients combine dermal fillers with Botox, which is also an effective treatment when done with care and precision.

The lifting effect of dermal fillers can also help lift the corners of the mouth, which complements lip fillers very well. To tighten loose skin in the facial area, a radio frequency treatment like Profound RF is a great option.
