For sculpturing and contouring facial features, softening lines, folds and wrinkles and to plump lips.
So if you want to try dermal fillers but are worried about the pain, discomfort or possibility of bruising-now could be the time to try this excellent innovation in filler injections. It works brilliantly with Restylane , and we can offer you an 'instant liquid facelift.'
Dr Goodfellow is fortunate to be amongst the first UK doctors to be trained in the use of the new 'Pix'L' cannula from Restylane
The Pix’L micro-cannulas were developed especially for use with the Restylane® Product Range. The advantages of the Pix’L micro-cannulas are as follows:
- Thanks to the blunt tip no damage is caused to the surrounding tissues, nerves or vessels which results in a virtually painless procedure without bruises.
- Through a single entry point the cannula can reach a wide area of the skin since it can be moved in different directions without any discomfort for the patient.
Whilst you can use moisturising creams to make dry skin feel more nourished, any effects will be very temporary because creams sit on the surface of the skin and cannot penetrate it to reach the deeper levels where hydration occurs. Restylane Vital Light is a skin revitalisation treatment providing deep dermal hydration. Restylane Vital Light is clinically proven to improve skin elasticity and promote skin smoothness, to give it a more hydrated look. Restylane Vital Light provides deep dermal hydration and moisturising from within to improve skin firmness to keep our skin looking plump and hydrated. It diminishes the appearance of fine crêpey lines caused by sun damage and counters the effects of central heating systems which leave our skin so dry in the winter.
It is perfect for treating:
- veiny hands
- crêpey sun damaged décolletage
- all areas of the face to improve skin tone and firmness
Restylane Vital Light is a smooth, pure crystal clear hyaluronic acid (HA) gel which is injected into the skin to replenish the skin’s own HA. We all have hyaluronic acid in our skin. It attracts water and plays an important part in the skin’s hydration system and the production of healthy looking skin.
As the face ages, fine or deep lines develop due to gravity, repetitive facial muscle movements, and loss of volume in the deeper layers of the skin. Sun damage ,smoking., and your genetic predisposition are also contributing factors to the aging process
The results of a Dermal Filler can be seen instantly – and as the treatment is non-surgical, with minimal downtime you can get on with living life to the full. Dermal fillers ( Such as Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse) are clear gels consisting of hyaluronic acid, that are 'hydrophilic', binding water within the skin, thus smoothing wrinkles and folds, and giving a new firmness to your skin. In the picture below you can find out what it can do for you.
After treatment, the lines on your face should appear minimised and smoothed out. If your treatment plan included lip enhancement, you'll notice that your lips appear fuller and more defined. If your plan included adding volume to your cheeks, you will notice that your cheeks look plumper, and your face looks younger.
During your initial consultation Dr Goodfellow will recommend the injectable filler most suitable to the depth of wrinkles and area to be treated.
Results are instant and last for three to twelve months
- Lips - 6-9 months
- Smokers Lines - 6- 9 months
- Nasolabial lines - 12 - 18 months
- Cheeks - 12 - 24 months
A variety of Dermal Filler products are available. We always use 'NASHA' products ( non-animal stabilised Hyaluronic Acid) -which are neither tested on , nor developed from animals. They have a very low incidence of allergic reactions, so there is no need for a skin patch test in advance. This means that you can receive treatment at your first visit if you wish.
The Juvéderm® ULTRA range of products is a new generation of hyaluronic acid fillers from ALLERGAN, a world leader in surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products. They use a specially formulated type of hyaluronic acid (HA) that exists naturally in your skin. It's a natural, biodegradable gel that flows easily and smoothly into your skin, instantly filling out those troublesome lines leaving a smooth and natural look and feel. So, you'll notice an immediate difference after just one treatment.
Radiesse® dermal filler may be used in an array of treatments ideal for correcting the signs of aging or adding natural contours to the face - without invasive surgery. It is setting a new standard for cosmetic fillers. It uses advanced, calcium-based microsphere technology to deliver soft, natural-looking results you can see immediately. And unlike other dermal fillers, it also stimulates your body to produce new collagen, so you'll continue to look more youthful and attractive over time. In fact for many patients, the benefits of treatment with RADIESSE dermal filler may last up a year or more.

Side -Effects of Dermal Fillers
- Initially there will be some redness and swelling of the treated lines, which may last a few hours.The lips are particularly sensitive, and swelling as a result of enhancement with dermal fillers can last for several days.
- Bruising after treatment may occur, particularly around the lip area- this possibility is minimised by the avoidance of aspirin or other anti-inflammatory tablets, alcohol,and fish oils, for five days before treatment.
- The effect immediately following treatment should not be viewed as the final result. Patients are advised to undergo Dermal Filler treatment one or two weeks ahead of a planned social or business function, to allow for optimal results..
