Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

For many, the younger they look,the better they feel about themselves.
Unfortunately the aging process is unstoppable and as the body grows old so does the skin,resulting in changes in its appearance and characteristics.

As time goes by

Age,hormones,sun exposure and smoking can cotribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
As we grow older the hyaluronic acid content of our skin,very important in water retention,decreases .
Our oil producing glands are less active and the skin becomes drier.
Also,the skin loses fat resulting in it looking less smooth and plump and with a decrease in the number of blood vessels in the skin,the skin loses its youthful glow.
While all these changes are happening gravity is also at work,pulling at the skin and causing it to sag.

Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid are amongst the treatment options available to treat lines and wrinkles as they effectively diminish the signs of aging and rehydrate the skin.
Treatment is quick,convenient and results can be seen immediately.

What areas are commonly treated?

  • Nose to Mouth grooves
  • Forehead lines
  • Lipstick lines
  • Acne Pits
  • Crows feet

What products do we use?

At Ranelagh Dental we use Juvederm Ultra and Restylane .This is a range of smooth consistency gels injected to restore volume,fill fine lines, wrinkles and folds and redefine lips. Its advanced formulation accounts for its smooth consistency.
Unlike other fillers it is not granular so it can flow easily into the skin giving a smooth and natural appearance.
Juvederm Ultra contains a local anaesthetic, Lidocaine, which helps make the treatment process comfortable.

What happens?

Treatment can be done in as little as 15 minutes depending on the area to be treated.
Using a very fine needle they are injected under the surface of the skin-at shallow levels for fine lines and slightly deeper for more severe wrinkles.

Will it be painful?

Not only is Juvederm Ultra and Restylane smooth flowing so it is easily injectable but it contains lidocaine to help reduce any discomfort during treatment and the visible effects of treatment are apparent immediately.

How long do the effects last ?

The duration of effect can depend on age, how much is injected, the quality of the skin and the persons general health and lifestyle. With Juvederm Ultra and Restylane, the beneficial effects can be expected to last for up to one year after treatment.

What are the side effects?

Following the injection, there may be some redness, swelling and bruising around the injection site. Most are mild to moderate in nature and resolve within a few days .

These include, but are not limited to, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching and discoloration.
There is also a risk of infection with any injection procedure.
