Defining Non Surgical

It’s clear to understand why non-surgical procedures are so popular. There is no need to take a lengthy amount of time away from work, side effects are minimal and results are phenomenal. During today’s blog we are going to look at some of the different types of non-surgical procedures and their benefits.

What are dermal fillers?

Also known as injectable fillers, this cosmetic procedure is a soft tissue filler. When injected into the skin it helps to fill wrinkles offering a smoother appearance.

What are dermal fillers used for?

A whole range of treatments! Depending on the area you are looking to improve, dermal fillers can be used for:

  • Lip enhancement
  • Non surgical rhinoplasty
  • Tear troughs
  • Nose augmentation
  • Cheek enhancement
  • Brow lift
  • 8 point face lift
  • Facial Contouring
  • Jawline reshape
  • Chin augmentation

If you decide that dermal fillers are the right treatment for you, we recommend an initial consultation to begin with. At Elle Aesthetics we offer these for free and at this meeting we will assess your requirements and discuss everything attached to the procedure.

And the results of dermal fillers?

Once you undergo this treatment, results are fantastic. You will notice smoother skin that lasts. Depending on the area targeted, dermal fillers will lift and reshape features, leaving you feeling refreshed and with a boost in confidence.

What about anti-ageing injections?

As the name suggests, anti-ageing injections are designed to reduce the signs of ageing by specifically treating facial lines and wrinkles. This product is also known as a wrinkle relaxant as the substance temporarily relaxes the muscles. Results offer a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

When would anti-ageing injections be used?

This type of treatment is particularly effective for the forehead, crows feet and frown lines. It also helps with the appearance of lip lines, gummy smiles and vertical neck bands.

Where can I undergo this treatment?

Anti-ageing injections contain a prescription only substance so therefore should only be administered by a qualified professional. A treatment is required to be delivered in the correct environment with the right information given along with quality aftercare and advice. A consultation is required prior to treatment to ensure this is the right procedure and you are aware of all relevant implications.

How fast are the results?

Anti-ageing injections offer notable results within just 4-5 days. In addition, effects continue to show over a prolonged period of two weeks. Improvements can last up to four months making this option a great way to improve the appearance of ageing as well as cost-effective.

Are there any side effects with anti-ageing injections?

It is important to be fully aware of the side effects attached to any procedure. Although no in all cases, anti-ageing injections can cause the following symptoms:

  • Bruising
  • Pain in injection site
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Flu like symptoms
  • Temporary eyelid droop
  • Localised infection
  • Swelling and redness at site of injection

All of these potential side effects should be discussed with you during an initial consultation.

Let’s move on to derma roller

Also referred to as micro needling, this treatment offers long lasting results. The process involves in-depth skin stimulation. Regeneration and repair is naturally encouraged and the results include smoother, brighter, healthier and younger looking skin.

What is derma roller suitable for?

This treatment is great if you are looking for a straightforward procedure that gives the skin a full refresh. It is also particularly effective for treating acne scars, photo-damaged and ageing skin, fine lines and wrinkles and even stretch marks.

How long does the treatment take?

Depending on the area being treated it can take as little as just 20 minutes.  

Are results instant?

Your skin will appear slightly sunburned straight after a course of derma roller. This will clear and the effects of your treatment and repair can take up to six weeks. The process continues for a further month by regenerating skin and this means longer lasting effects.

If you are looking for the best treatment based on your current needs we advise booking in for a free consultation. Our qualified specialists will go through everything with you whilst advising on the best course of action and number of sessions required.
