As we age, so does our skin. Collagen and elastin are the support structures that keep our skin supple and firm, but over time these structures break down, causing our skin to droop and lose definition. Like toxin, dermal fillers are injected into the skin and help to combat the signs of aging, although fillers work differently. Toxin relaxes the muscle so that lines are smoothed out, whereas fillers help to restore and plump out facial areas (such as the cheeks and lips) that are prone to volume loss through aging, skin thinning, fat pad separation and bone loss.
HYALURONIC ACID DERMAL FILLERS
Biodegradable Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are temporary treatments that provide immediate skin enhancement.
You can expect the results from a HA dermal filler to last between 12-18 months, sometimes longer, depending on the area of skin being treated and on the individual. A great benefit of using a HA filler is that HA occurs naturally in the body, meaning that allergic reactions are uncommon.
A comprehensive range of HA fillers is available at Webster Aesthetics. Each type has been chosen for their qualities in offering the best results for specific facial areas. All are FDA approved and from recognised and reputable UK pharmacy suppliers. HA filler prices start at £225. Please see below for specific details on leading HA fillers Radiesse and PROFHILO as well as information on Tear Trough and non-surgical Rhinoplasty treatments, both of which are performed with a dermal filler.
RADIESSE & PROFHILO
Radiesse helps to contour and define facial areas that have started to sag.
It works immediately to improve and enhance the skin structure and also works from within the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin over time.
Cost: from £350

UNDER EYE REJUVENATION & NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY
Tear Trough under eye rejuvenation and correction of hollowness
The skin around the eyes is very thin, which is why this area is often the first place on the body to show signs of ageing e.g. puffiness, dark circles and crow’s feet. Dark circles can also be caused by genetics and hollowness under the eyes can be caused by fat loss, thus creating a shadow.
A dermal filler can be used to correct any hollowness and rejuvenate the under-eye area to reduce dark circles and puffiness.
Cost: £250 for both eyes
This is a HA biodegradable filler treatment that can correct minor irregularities of the nose that otherwise wouldn’t need surgery. Small amounts of filler are expertly placed to straighten out the general profile of the nose.
