Advancements in filler technology have resulted in the popularity of lip enhancements soaring over the years, with many people opting to add definition and volume to their lips in order to improve their appearance. Choosing the right medical clinician is key obtaining your desired outcome with every injector offering a unique, artistic flare and level of service. At Countryside Cosmetics, Nurse Emma Smyth prides herself on providing safe, minimally invasive treatments with undetectable results for those seeking a natural enhancement.
Nurse Emma works with the highest calibre of hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, sourced directly from regulated UK pharmacies, with no less than 12-18 months longevity (compared with cheaper products on the market lasting only 3-6 months). Understanding that any first treatment can feel daunting, Emma will kindly guide you through everything you need to know about your procedure, to build your confidence and put you completely at ease. With generous treatment time slots, your experience at Countryside Cosmetics will be uniquely relaxing.
Over the years, Nurse Emma has fine-tuned her injecting techniques to improve safety and minimise associated trauma. And since the introduction of cannulas at Countryside Cosmetics (round ended needles) the risk of procedural bruising from lip enhancements has almost been eliminated. A little swelling however is still a very normal part of healing process, though this only tends to last a couple of days post treatment.Book Now
Dermal Fillers are injectable products used to cosmetically enhance facial features, restore volume loss and fill in facial lines. They should only be administered by a medical practitioner whose knowledge and understanding of the relevant anatomy will help to minimise the risk complications and allow effective management in the event of one.
Results of Dermal Filler treatments are instant. However, some localised inflammation is common, particularly with lip injections, and therefore it may take up to two weeks to see the final results, though most commonly this settles after 2-3 days.
Dermal Fillers usually take around 20 minutes to administer. You will meet with your Nurse Prescriber Emma Smyth to discuss the desired results and decide a treatment plan together. Topical anaesthetic will be applied prior to your treatment to minimise any discomfort before treatment in administered.
There are different categories of Dermal Filler, both natural and synthetic. Countryside Cosmetics works with the FDA approved Juvederm, Belotero and Teosyal ranges due to their excellent safety profiles and lasting results. These brands contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in the body that absorbs moisture and maintains skin hydration. Facial fillers arrive in a pre-packed syringe and contain the smooth gel ready for treatment. The gel also contains lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to reduce discomfort during the procedure.
The results of Dermal Filler treatments vary depending on the individual, but most products last 9-12 months.
Dermal fillers can be used to treat a variety of problem areas such as: cheeks, jawline, tear troughs, marionette/nasolabial folds, mouth corners and chin.
Bruising can be minimised by avoiding aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and alcohol for 24 hours pre and post treatment. It is important after your treatment that you do not rub or massage the area, take hot baths or engage in strenuous exercise. We advise you sleep with your head elevated on a pillow for the first night following your procedure. You will receive a comprehensive aftercare advice sheet following your treatment to ensure you leave Countryside Cosmetics feeling confident after your procedure, and are able to obtain the best results.
