At Rippon Medical Services, we only use premium dermal fillers like Juvederm®, Radiesse® and Teoxane® although others can be used if requested.
The hyaluronic acid volumisers in dermal filler mimic the effects of naturally occurring collagen by plumping up gaunt areas on cheeks and chin and sculpting more youthful contours.
These fillers gently softens wrinkles and can help to fill out hollows to create the smooth contours of younger skin - without surgery.
Facial Fillers are used to smooth wrinkles, plump up the skin by adding volume and replacing lost collagen due to the natural ageing process. At Rippon Medical Services, Cumbria, UK we offer a full range of facial fillers including the:
VYCROSS™ range from Allergan.
Allergan, world leaders in surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products produce these temporary fillers to create subtle enhancements by filling hollows and deep lines for a more youthful appearance.
VYCROSS™ technology uses an innovative combination of low and high molecular weight HA* to improve the cross-linking efﬁciency of HA chains.
VOLUMA®, VOLBELLA® and VOLIFT® are the three latest fillers from Juvederm. They are formulated with a 90% low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid and only 10% high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (HMWHA). Most fillers are 100% High molecular weight hyaluronic acid.
BENEFITS OF VYCROSS™ TECHNOLOGY:
This produces an ultra-smooth gel for a more natural look and feel, minimal swelling and bruising, as well as improved duration.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume.
Depending on your individual treatment plan, the appointment can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Dr Rippon will start by reviewing your treatment plan and giving you the ins and outs of what to expect that day. He will go over the number of injection points to show you how they will achieve the results you are after.
When you are ready, Dr Rippon will first sanitise your treatment areas to prepare them for the injections. If using Juvederm® products with lidocaine, there will be minimal pain and swelling of the treatment areas. Juvederm®products with lidocaine have a built in anaesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable and relatively pain-free.
Each injection is short, lasting a few seconds, and the amount of filler used will be dependent on your main treatment objective. The treatment technique will also vary depending on what you are looking to achieve. For example, Dr Rippon may be injecting an area of your face that isn’t necessarily your area of concern, because the effect it will create will give you the results you want.
After each injection, Dr Rippon will massage the area to ensure that the filler is placed properly and smoothed into your skin. You will be able to see your results immediately after the procedure. There may be some minimal swelling and redness at the injection points, which is normal and will subside soon after you leave the clinic.
Dr Rippon will want to schedule a follow-up appointment in a couple of weeks, just to check in and make sure you are happy with the results. It’s a great opportunity to make sure you are completely satisfied with your treatment, or if you want a small touch-up to get the results you are after. Any further filler added at this review will be classed as part of your treatment and will be charged at the prices shown on our price list page.
