Here at Lux Aesthetics we offer a huge range of services and are constantly expanding.
We are seriously specialised when it comes to dermal fillers. Renowned in our industry as the best at natural results.
Dermal fillers are a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) gel that is injected into the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour the face and create volume. Dermal fillers work by imitating a naturally occurring substance within your body, hyaluronic acid. By boosting your skin with this naturally occurring substance, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the area instantly.
Prior to treatment, a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to increase comfort. Dermal fillers last approximately 6 to 18 months depending on the type of filler used. We use a variety of different fillers and can discuss what best suits your needs and budget in our consultation.
The most common areas treated are the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, jaw, chin and tear trough.
Dermal filler can be used to give the lips a fuller look and restore lip proportion. We assess your lips and work with you to get the look that you desire. The lip dermal fillers will last for between 6 months and a year.
As we age we lose volume in the cheeks. This can cause the cheeks to flatten or sag, which can, in turn, emphasise bags under the eyes, jowling along the jawline and nasolabial folds.
Dermal Filler can be placed in the cheek area to replace the lost volume and give a more youthful appearance. Sometimes treating cheek volume can improve the appearance of the 'tear trough'. The dermal fillers used in the cheek area can last 12-18months.
