Dr Sian Aesthetics | Anti Ageing Aesthetic Treatments | Manchester

Why Do Wrinkles & Folds Develop?

Wrinkles are initially produced from repeated use of the muscles of facial expression so called ‘dynamic’ wrinkles. As we age, decrease in fat, collagen and elastin fibres results in volume loss which produces ‘static’ wrinkles and deep folds. Skin is lined, less firm and less elastic. Underlying facial bone also erodes, leading to flattening of the forehead and cheekbones and distortion of facial proportions.

Facial ageing is only partially due to genetics. This process is greatly exacerbated by exposure to ultraviolet UV radiation, smoking, alcohol, stress and pollution.

Non surgical, anti-ageing treatments can reduce the appearance of folds and wrinkles, as well as reshape facial contours, producing natural results with little downtime.

What Are Dermal Filler Treatments?

Dermal Fillers or Soft Tissue Fillers are a form of cosmetic injection therapy used to rejuvenate facial features. Dermal Fillers can be temporary, permanent or semi permanent. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers – the commonest fillers used today – are temporary fillers. There are several FDA approved and CE marked fillers marketed in the UK.

Our Dermal Filler treatments are only administered by a healthcare professional within a clean, clinical environment.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the skin, where it hydrates and stimulates fibroblasts (the cells that produce collagen and elastin).

Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers hydrate and add volume, shaping facial contours and smoothing facial wrinkles and folds.

Before Dermal Filler Treatments

Consultation with our medical doctor is required prior to treatment. All the options for treatment, as well as the risks and complications of a Dermal Filler treatment will be discussed with you in detail to ensure informed consent.

Do not consume alcohol 24 hours prior to treatment, as this may increase the risk of bruising. It is advisable to have treatment at least 2 weeks before any special event to allow swelling or bruising to subside.
