Dermal fillers are the most flexible of Medical Cosmetics products. Advanced Practitioners use Dermal Fillers to achieve fantastic results in so many areas they are known in the industry as a 'liquid face lift’. There are many Dermal Fillers on the market Restylane, Radiesse, Teosyal, Belotero, Princess, Revolax to name but a few.
At Elysium we are not linked to any particular company and are therefore free to offer you the best products according to what is best for your skin and the evidence they have behind them for safety and effectiveness. Different Dermal Fillers are good for different treatments but there are some important features that each dermal filler must have in order for us to use them:
They are well-researched and have a great record for safety.
They produce excellent results.
They are non-permanent and match the natural, major components of our skin so they break down naturally over time.
The results are long lasting but temporary. Permanent implants are irreversible and as we have seen in the media, permanent treatments can cause permanent problems.
How do they work?
The Hyaluronic Acid in our bodies gives our skin its elasticity and hydration. These are the properties that make our skin look youthful. As we age these qualities naturally deteriorate leaving us with lines, wrinkles sunken cheeks and saggy skin. Qualities that make us look older! When we replace the hyaluronic acid with Dermal Fillers we fill up wrinkles and replace volume, giving an instant rejuvenating effect. As a long-lasting benefit, the treated area continues to improve on a more fundamental level. More collagen growth is encouraged and water is attracted to the area keeping your skin hydrated deep down. Lip Enhancements For many people a fuller or more defined mouth comes high on their wish list. The flexibility of Dermal fillers allows you to choose the effect you are looking for whether it’s a subtle definition of the lips, a more even mouth or fuller lips. All of our lip treatments are temporary and last for around 6-12 months when you will require a repeat treatment. The dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance which is found in every cell of your skin. This allows it to break down naturally over time. The temporary nature of Dermal Fillers allows you to correct or change the look of your lips if you desire. Cheek enhancements As we age, volume is lost from the face, most notably in the fat pads in our cheeks. As the volume in this area decreases, the face appears older and more hollow. A treatment with dermal fillers is a simple correction which replaces lost volume, providing a more youthful look.
Treatment for the Hands and Chest rejuvenation are available and the results are stunning. The hands and décolletage (chest) areas are often much neglected when it comes to looking after our skin. They tend to be exposed to the elements and prone to sun damage and therefore can be a tell-tale sign of ageing.
RADIESSE® — For Volume and Contours The treatment of individual wrinkles is often not enough to restore a youthful and fresh appearance. In order to counter the effects of gravity and regain a younger shape, the face needs real volume. This can be achieved with a dermal filler which also re-stimulates natural collagen production for effective and lasting volume. Thanks to a special gel-matrix, Radiesse® volumising filler creates immediately visible results. With its fine calcium microspheres Radiesse® volumising filler stimulates the body's natural collagen formation to create long-lasting volume. The gel itself, as well as the microspheres, are completely broken down by the body over time. Radiesse® volumising filler puts volume back exactly where it was. With gentle volumising deeper wrinkles and hollow or sagging cheeks disappear, and the natural facial contours return. Dual effect volume formation Immediate effect due to elastic gel-matrix Long-acting effect thanks to collagen stimulation Safe to use Comprehensive clinical studies confirm effectiveness and tolerance Ask your practitioner what Radiesse® volumising filler can do for you Welcome Back Your Own Natural Collagen
