What is lip-filler?
Here at Elegant, we use a popular brand of filler called Juvederm, a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. In particular, we use Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Vycross, the different products are each tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths. Juvederm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency which delivers natural yet defined results.
How does Juvederm filler work?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body so by using a filler of this kind we can stimulate the production of collagen to plump the skin and the area being injected.
Before the procedure, we will discuss with you the areas around your lips you’d like to be treated and will talk you through what to expect during and after. When you are happy what we’ve decided we will then inject Juvederm into the area, lightly massaging the lips to ensure an even distribution of product and to reduce the chance of swelling. The entire procedure usually takes between 15 and 60 minutes.
Lips like Kylie
It’s advisable to have a good idea of your cosmetic goals and expectations and to communicate these clearly with your aesthetic practitioner. Bear in mind however that everyone’s anatomy is different and what looks good on one person may not suit another, we will always be honest with you with the aim to achieve a natural looking yet effective result. Juvederm fillers are minimally invasive so we’d usually do the procedure on the same day as your consultation, with your consent of course.
We would advise avoiding medication like aspirin and ibuprofen as well as alcohol and smoking in the week or so leading up to your treatment, this is mainly to avoid thinning the blood and therefore preventing bruising.
Meet Shikha Rishi
I am a highly experienced aesthetics pharmacist and have a number of years training under the world renowned Dr. Katie Goldie in Harley Street, London and Dr Tim Pearce at Skin Viva, Manchester. I have therefore decided to base my own clinic in my home town of Bournemouth at the Sandbanks Clinic in Poole’.
What makes Elegant different to other clinics is that as a conscientious practitioner I will want to understand your aims and expectations and together come to a joint treatment plan. This is proven to give much more natural, longer lasting results than a “one size fits all” approach to Botox and fillers. I only use the most advanced techniques and products in my consultations including the well established Botox and Juverderm ranges.
I look forward to welcoming you into the clinic and begin our journey together to revealing the more Elegant you.
