It was once thought that aging is about losing your claim to youthfulness. What if you learned that youthfulness is all-encompassing? If you maintain a youthful look, you can feel young at heart. Injectable fillers can help you reach the fountain of youth when it comes to your appearance. 

Dr. Riccardo Frati, MD is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is committed to assisting you with realizing your aesthetic goals. By utilizing injectable fillers, he can maintain natural-looking results while enhancing your facial features. 

About Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers (also called dermal fillers) are versatile, minimally-invasive materials which are injected into the skin. They provide enhanced volume to places that have become thin or hollowed with age, weight loss, or because of genetics. If you are experiencing thin lips, hollowed areas around your eyes, flattened cheeks, or fine lines and wrinkles, injectable fillers can be an ideal solution! Reclaiming supple, firm skin can give you the youthfulness you have been seeking!

Benefits

Dermal Fillers may contain hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. HA is what keeps skin moist and supple. As we age, our HA diminishes. The added HA from fillers allows the skin to become smoother over time. The additional benefits of dermal fillers are priceless!

If Dr. Frati determines you would be an ideal candidate for dermal fillers, he will create a tailored treatment plan for you in order to meet your needs. From there, you will receive a pricing sheet which will outline the associated costs for the procedure. 

Preparation

To prepare for your session to receive injectable fillers, Dr. Frati will discuss pre-procedure instructions with you during your consultation.

Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive procedure that requires no downtime. Dr. Frati will cleanse your skin and apply a topical anaesthetic. After a few minutes, the anaesthetic will be wiped away and Dr. Frati will begin injecting the target areas with the dermal filler of choice. Depending on the treatment sites, the entire procedure could take as little as 30 minutes or as much as an hour.

Types of Fillers

  • Juvéderm. Juvéderm is a brand of injectable fillers. Each product in the Juvederm line is tailored to treat specific concerns. Facial contouring, restoring volume, and smoothing lines are just some of the ways Juvéderm can work for you!
  • Restylane. Restylane is another brand of fillers that contains hyaluronic acid. In addition to smoothing and contouring the face, Restylane can also help improve the quality of the skin! This will help you achieve the youthful glow from the inside, out.

Injectable fillers are minimally-invasive and will not monopolize your entire day! Following injection, you may experience redness and/or tenderness at the injection sites. These are common and should subside within two days following treatment. You may gently apply an ice pack to aid in soothing the area. Medication is not typically needed to manage discomfort. You may return to your daily activities following your appointment. There is no hassle, no unreasonable time commitment and no downtime!

Complementary Procedures

Dermal fillers may be a fountain of youth on their own, however there may be many other procedures that can help augment your smoother face. Combat the signs of ageing by adding these to your dermal filler regimen.

Botox

Botox is a neuromodulator that works to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the forehead, in between the eyebrows and around the eyes. The muscles in these areas usually contract regularly and this puts constant pressure on the skin above, making it fold and crease. Botox is injected into these areas and prohibits the targeted facial muscles from contracting, and thus, causing the overlying skin from wrinkling.

Eye Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

A blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure where excess tissue on the top and/or bottom eyelids are excised. If you experience drooping eyelids that may inhibit your ability to see well or is keeping you from looking your best, eyelid surgery may help keep you looking more alert and younger, long-term.

Facelift Surgery

A facelift is a surgical procedure where excess skin and fat are removed from the face. The remaining skin is pulled taut and sutured closed. Once fully healed, the result is smoother contours around the mouth, jaw, and neck. If you have loose, drooping skin around your lower face and neck that may not be adequately addressed with dermal fillers, a facelift may be an ideal solution for you!

Injectable Filler Pricing in Machester & London
