Traditionally, facial rejuvenation has been achieved with a face-lift by surgically tightening the skin.
Today, a multitude of minimally invasive procedures are aimed at rejuvenation without the risk, recovery time, and expense of major surgery.
Since 1981, dermal fillers (Collagen and other Dermal Fillers) have been used to treat lines, folds and wrinkles resulting in a younger and fresher appearance. The treatment is safe, and produces instant results.
Commonly Asked Questions
What is the difference between the different dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers can be broken down into three categories- bio degradable, semi permanent and permanent. Semi permanent and permanent products, while they produce longer lasting results, are associated with higher risks.
The safest products are biodegradable products because any problems (probability of adverse events is minimal) associated with the treatment can be reversed. Our clinicians prefers to use biodegradable products because of their safety factor. Also as we age, the skin changes so a permanent solution might not be appropriate for the long term.
Can I have the treatment immediately?
Yes. The decision is up to you.
Which products do you provide and why?
For biodegradable products, Rhoda Clinic uses Juvaderm Ultra. We prefer to use these products because there are five different products to choose from which means that we have the flexibility to choose a product that is right for your skin type.
These products are formulated differently than others and provide a smooth and natural results with minimal swelling. These products are have been in the market for over five years and have shown very little adverse responses. Safety and efficacy are our main priorities for our clients.
Is the treatment painful?
There is some discomfort during treatment. The clinician will use a topical anaesthetic on the treated area to minimize any discomfort. For lip augmentation, the clinician prefers to apply a dental block since the treatment is more painful in this area of the face.
What is the cost for the treatments?
The cost varies depending on the areas to be treated. You will need to consult with the clinician before a precise cost can be determined. On average, most treatment cost between £250 to £300.
Do I need to take time off work to have the treatment?
No. This procedure is very non invasive and patients can return to work after treatment without any noticeable difference.
How long does the treatment last?
Depending on your age and the area treated, you can expect to repeat the treatment twice a year. On average, the treatment will last 6-8 months. In the lip area, the treatment will last about 5-6 months.
The reason for this is that there is more mechanical stress in this area and therefore the product tends to breakdown quicker.
