When it comes to beauty, people these days really are trying to keep up with the Kardashians.Last year, some aesthetic clinics reported that enquiries about lip fillers increased by as much as 70% after Kylie Jenner of the famous family confirmed she’d had the treatment.1 It’s no surprise then, that dermal fillers remained the most popular non-surgical treatment in the UK in 2015, with a 113% surge in enquiries.2
Of course, people don’t just turn to fillers for plumper lips. They can be used to treat several facial aesthetic concerns, including: scars, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, loss of volume in the cheeks, frown lines.3 as well as the ears, hands and the vaginal area. One of the most popular substances used in filler treatments is hyaluronic acid (HA), owing to its temporary nature and the fact that it can be reversed. But dermal fillers have not always been as sophisticated as they are today.
Many people spend countless hours using harmful beauty products to keep their skin looking vibrant and young. But there’s a better way, without the harmful side effects of toxic skin products.
Hyaluronic acid is a lubricating, clear substance that’s produced by the body naturally. In the human body, hyaluronic acid is found in the greatest concentrations in the skin, inside joints, within the eye sockets and in other tissues where it helps retain collagen, increase moisture, and provide elasticity and flexibility.
Today, HA is incorporated into different anti-aging beauty and health care products — you can now find hyaluronic acid lotions, creams, serums and supplements sold in health food stores.
We use non-animal stabilised hyaluronic acid – known as NASHA as this is used in Restylane filler products. It’s been around for more than 20 years and, in our opinion, is the gold standard in treatment. it delivers excellent results when you’re looking at efficiency of product and maximum lift. The NASHA products come in the form of a firmer, gel-like substance, which aims to give rise to a more pronounced lifting capacity.
