Voluma is the ideal Juvederm dermal filler for volumising the cheeks, and also providing a subtle lift to the mid face. It lasts 15 months or so, and is used for deep injections, with minimal bruising , particularly when a cannula is used.



Juvederm Volbella to subtly reshape and define lips

03/04/2016 at 15:22:28 | by Alison Duncan
Juvederm Volbella with lidocaine is the latest product in the Juvederm range of facial fillers, developed specifically for lips and also fine facial lines.Volbella has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft natural feel the gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles, while the hyaluronic acid within attracts moisture, so results can last up to one year, or even longer in some cases.
So no trout pout! Just a pretty way to enhance your lips. A study showed that 98% of people who had Juvederm Volbella said that their lip appearance goals had been achieved, with results lasting up to 12 months.
 



Juvederm Ultra

24/03/2016 at 09:46:14 | by Dr Alison Duncan
Juvederm Ultra is a range of smooth consistency gels made from hyaluronic acid- a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Dr Alison Duncan at Medical Cosmetic Service uses this product as the main filler in her clinics, because of the smooth, natural look it gives and the fact that it contains local anaesthetic which aids comfort of the injections.
 
Juvederm Ultra has good longevity, with 75% of patients maintaining an improvement for up to one year. Juvederm Ultra will instantly redefine your lips, smooth away your facial wrinkles and restore your skin's volume. It provides a smooth natural look and feel. You will notice the results yourself, but no one will know!
 
i always offer numbing cream with my filler treatments; I don't endorse the no pain, no gain philosophy. I definitely advise against taking alcohol and aspirin/ ibuprofen several days before treatment, to minimise the risk of bruising. Antihistamine helps to reduce any puffiness experienced with lip injections, and arnica pillules do help to reduce the risk of bruises.
 
The treatment is always preceded by a full medical consultation, and you are reassured that a qualifies doctor is doing the treatment at Medical Cosmetic Service clinics. 



Juvederm Vycross Range

22/03/2016 at 08:57:04 | by Dr Alison Duncan
Allergan have added to their range of Juvederm with a Vycross spectrum which really is a spectacular innovation. The Vycross collection of hyaluronc acid dermal fillers includes
 
  1. Voluma, intended to restore volume for the face, for example in temples, mid face region, chin and jaw
  2. Volift for treatment of deep skin depressions, face contouring and volume restoration to correct facial deformities,Moulmein loss in the cheeks, chin and lower face
  3. Volbella to treat any fine lines and medium sized skin depressions; enhancement of putting of the lips to correct structural defects such as asymmetry, contour deformities and volume loss.
Volume loss is a fundamental component of facial ageing. Contributing factors include fat redistribution, skeletal remodelling and other changes in tissue composition. Hyaluronc acid fillers are an establishes means of addressing volume loss, correcting contour defeats and providing support and structure to the face.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural polysaccharide polymer present in the human dermis. Due to its chemical structure, it is highly water soluble and will readily dissolve to form a viscous clear liquid. The hyaluronic acid in fillers is stabilised to increase longevity, as uncross linked hyaluronic acid will stay in the skin only for a few days. Structurally, hyaluronic acid fillers are similar to native tissue, providing excellent biocompatibility and good tissue integration.
Vycross technology is a mix of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, combined with a cross linking process which results in an efficiently and tightly cross linked gel. This tight hyaluronic acid network results in:
Greater resistance to degradation, delivering long-lasting duration (12-18 months
Minimal gel expansion due to low water uptake coiled with lots w hyaluronic acid concentration 
 
This new version ethnology allows for repositioning tissues, and strengthening muscle pull to result in a liquid facelift , without looking done or bulky.



PRP - platelet rich plasma therapy for body rejuvenation

06/02/2016 at 14:43:06 | by Dr Alison Duncan
We all concentrate on our faces, and hopefully neck and décolleté. and hands? These areas when showing the ageing process disproportionately to the maintained face, can actually exaggerate one's age. Now we're getting to the summer, we will all be hoping for sunny, hot weather and beach holidays, where our arms and legs will be on display. It is said, that after a certain age, one should hide the upper arms, but when it is baking hot, strappy tops are a lot more comfortable. Although our dress length may hide our knees, crossing the legs, when seated, always reveals our knees and lower thighs. Standing only makes it worse, when wrinkly saggy knees are really on show. Fake tan helps to disguise, but what else can be done to help sagging, knees, elbows and upper arms?
 
You want a treatment that packs a punch, which means injections. The two main options are Mesotherapy and PRP. Platelets therapy has been described as the Vampire Lift or Dracula therapy.
Both of these treatments tackle the weakened, thinned dermis by stimulating collagen production. Take your pick, as to whether you use your own body's mechanism via platelets, or use the injection of plant and organic compounds to do the job.
 
Either way, sun protection is really important; exercise to tone your limbs, optimise your diet, and use a topical cream to aid moisturisation. Exfoliation will allow better absorption of a body cream that should ideally contain, retinol, peptides and plant stem cells. Both Environ and Neostrata can deliver at least tow out of three. 
 
I have discussed tricky age revealing zones. All of the above still applies to the face!
