What you need to know about Lip Fillers

Lip fillers are enjoying a bit of a surge in popularity at the moment, possibly boosted by glamorous female celebs endorsing the trend, and also because today’s more sophisticated lip enhancement techniques have built up a better reputation over the last few years.

Individuals opting for contemporary lip filler procedures also have the benefit of being able to take a gradual approach to achieving the desired result through a number of appointments, and, unlike its silicone predecessor, is not a permanent procedure.

Lip Enhancement at Aesthetics International
We offer a variety of lip enhancement procedures tailored to your needs based on a thorough consultation with one of our expert aesthetic plastic surgeons. Our surgeons will talk in depth to you about the results you are seeking, and advise you on the best way to achieve these.
We’re here to answer some common questions about minimally invasive lip fillers before you choose if it’s right for you.

What are lip fillers and what do they do?
The majority of lip fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies which transfers nutrients from our bloodstream to our skin cells. You’ll probably have seen hyaluronic acid as a key ingredient in many youth-enhancing skincare products – these do have an effect, however cannot penetrate deeply enough to make an immediate, major difference.

When hyaluronic acid filler is injected into the lips, the effect is immediate, plumping and adding volume and shape. The amount of filler administered is controllable, and individuals can opt of a more gradual approach of several appointments until the desired lip-lusciousness is achieved.

The effects last for four – six months, and top-up sessions can be carried out to keep your pout plumped.(Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

Are lip fillers safe?
Every aesthetic procedure carries a small risk, however, there are steps you can take to ensure your treatment is as safe and successful as possible:

• Do not opt for lip fillers at a spa or salon, (or worse – a private home). Only allow a qualified, cosmetic physician at a reputable clinic carry out the procedure.
• Do your research, check reviews of individual doctors and clinics, ask for ‘before and after’ photos of the doctor’s patients.
• Don’t be afraid to ask questions during your consultation, the doctor should explain all procedure and product options.
• Make sure you see which product the doctor is using, and that it is taken from the packaging in front of you.

As mentioned, hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, and any allergic reaction is highly unlikely.

Is lip enhancement painful?
Most individuals opt for dental block or numbing cream prior to the filler injections, which numbs the lips and surrounding area to make the procedure painless. If anything, you’ll maybe only feel a slight prick of the needle and the filler being pushed into the lips – which may feel a bit strange. Your doctor will then ‘massage’ the filler to ensure even distribution of the product, making sure there aren’t any lumps or bumps, and that the end result is aesthetically balanced.

You might have a little swelling and bruising following your treatment, as the lips are a delicate area, if this is the case, applying an ice pack will reduce this. Any swelling should subside and the final result apparent within one to three days.

At Aesthetics International, we’ll be more than happy to answer any questions and offer our expert advice on the best treatment for you if you are exploring the idea of lip fillers. Get in touch via our contact form, or call us on 04 384 5600 to book an expert consultation.

Non Surgical Body Shaping

What is Velashape?

VelaShape® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction*. VelaShape enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body in typcially 3 treatment sessions (single treatment protocol is also available); making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.(Every patient is a unique individual and every procedure has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

Which areas can be treated with VelaShape?

Cellulite treatment areas could be on the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime.

Is VelaShape treatment right for me?

VelaShape is not a weight loss treatment. VelaShape uses a combination of technologies to contour your body, reducing the trouble spots that diet and exercise can’t reach. The ideal VelaShape patient is someone with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of less than 30, who falls under The Nurnberger-Muller Cellulite Classification Stage 1 and 2. Ask your doctor to see if you’re a candidate for VelaShape treatments.

What VelaShape does

The technology
VelaShape technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

What do I expect from VelaShape treatments?

• Gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
• Circumferential reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area
(Every patient is a unique individual and every procedure has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

What is the VelaShape procedure like?

Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours.

VelaShape Mechanism of Action

VelaShape uses vacuum technology to manipulate your skin while infrared light (IR) and bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energies will gently heat fat cells and surrounding tissue. Over the course of your treatments, you will notice a reduction in both circumference and in the appearance of cellulite in the treated areas.(Every patient is a unique individual and every procedure has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)

Patient Testimonials

Shopping for clothes has always been one of my favorite activities. And since I lost a couple of inches with VelaShape, it’s become even more fun. Clothes fit better, and my confidence is through the roof!
K.F New York, United States
Even though I’ve always gotten plenty of exercise, I still had a real love-hate relationship with the fitting room. Now that VelaShape has helped me take an inch off my abdomen, I feel like everything I try on fits a little bit better!

FAQ’s: Injectable Fillers

Non Surgical Fillers

Recently, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) released new and informative statistics; an increase of 21% in non surgical fillers from last year. Interestingly enough, most of these procedures were lip fillers. Adding volume to the lips seems to be an ongoing trend now, especially with the younger generation.  Furthermore, patients are able to benefit from a very natural looking result without having to undergo surgery.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Jaffer Khan answers some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to the procedure.

FAQ’s: Fillers with Dr. Jaffer Khan

Q.1.  What can I look to achieve with fillers, and who is a good candidate?

A.1.  During the process of aging, both gravitational effects and deflation are evident.  Volumization with fillers will treat the deflation aspect, both due to the loss of fat as a process of aging and also the reduction in collagen and elastic fibers in the skin.  Aging parameters, however, are not alone in their requirement for volumization as fillers can also be used to replace volume, which was never there due to inadequate bony structure or inadequate fat composition in a certain part of the face.  Indeed, this is true in the lips themselves where the amount of dry vermillion is lacking, and volumization of the lips such as to roll out the wet vermillion into the dry vermillion area will create a semblance of a larger lip.  Therefore, both younger and older patients will benefit from volume.

Good candidates are those who have good quality skin and who are looking to achieve results, which are not necessarily as good as the surgical ones, but indeed could be.

Q.2.  Which fillers do you use?

A.2.  We use predominantly hyaluronic acid fillers, and there are many proprietary brands for this.  We also use calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse), but we never use anything permanent as these largely have not had a good track record and have caused a multitude of problems in the past, which are not reconcilable.

Q.3.  How long do they last?

A.3.  This depends on the particle size of the hyaluronic acid used as well as the location.  Normally, fillers in those areas which are moving such as the nasolabial folds, the marionette lines, and the chin, as well as the lips, would usually last anywhere from 4 to 8 months.  Other areas placed deep on the cheek or in the under eye or temporal areas may last for a couple of years.  It is always a good idea to speak to your doctor regarding this, as oftentimes the length of time the filler is supposed to last published by the manufacturers are not entirely accurate.

Q.4.  Are there any side effects?

A.4.  Anything that we do in life has potential effects, and some of these can be adverse.  For fillers, the obvious ones are occasional bruising, bleeding, and potentially, sometimes, infection (although I have never seen this with the use of fillers over 15 years).  Some patients are allergic to hyaluronic acid, but this is also very rare, and this can result in prolonged redness, swelling, or pain, but this is completely resolvable. 

The most dangerous complication of fillers are vascular ones where inadvertent injection into an artery or a vein could result in congestion, prolonged swelling, redness, loss of skin, and even permanent loss of eyesight.   Mentioning these things are frightening for patients and quite understandably; however, it is important to consent patients for these potentially, extremely rare and adverse effects because the risk is certainly not zero.

Q.5.  I have had heard that fillers are a good alternative to a nose job.  Could you please explain how fillers can assist in this instance?

A.5.  Non-surgical rhinoplasty can only really be achieved with fillers if we are looking for those specific conditions, which are involving augmentation.  What I mean by this is addition of volume in certain areas, like increasing the projection of the tip and filling any defects, either proximal to distal to a hump, such that we produce a streamlined straight dorsum of the nose or increased projection of the tip would all be useful as an alternative to surgery.  In cases where noses are large and we are using a reduction method to achieve harmonious result, obviously fillers cannot be used.

Fillers are also very useful in correction of secondary post rhinoplasty deformities whereby small depressions can be corrected by use of fillers, which would last several months.  The interesting part is that by repeated usage, it seems the longevity in that particular area seems to be increasing, and this could be because of the fibrotic response of constant trauma when one is doing the fillers repeatedly over a period of years.

Q.6.  How can one avoid looking unnatural with fillers?

A.6.  The key for avoiding unnatural appearance is judicious use and conservative use.  One should never overfill, and should essentially do it in a step-wise fashion such that the patient obtains the confidence and also knows that they both tolerate the filler well and like its effects.  Undoubtedly, the most common cause of unnatural appearance is over-volumization.

But what is ULTHERAPY?

ULTHERAPY is a non-surgical procedure for the face and neck that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift the skin over time. The use of FDA cleared ultrasound technology enables physicians to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

“Ultherapy represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine,” says Dr. Khan. “It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable results.”

Ultherapy relies on Ultrasound therapy to deliver it’s collagen boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.

The treatment typically takes around 90 minutes. Afterward, patients are able to return to normal activities right away.

With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of 2-3 months as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created. Further improvements can even appear up to 6 months following a procedure as this collagen building process continues.

What’s new in Anti-Aging?

It’s finally November and as cooler winds approach the weather in the UAE has us all looking forward to more outdoor activities and gearing up for the holiday season.

So why not try the latest technique in anti-aging and give your skin a refreshed glow?

E Matrix -­ Radio Frequency is a non­surgical treatment designed to treat wrinkles, scars and large pores.

Also known as Sublative Rejuvenation Treatment, E ­Matrix works on all skin types and is a safe and effective method for diminishing aging signs such as scars, as well as improving texture of the skin.

WHY E ­MATRIX?

  • Treats deep tissue acne scars non – ­invasively
  • Tightens the loose and sagging skin on face, neck, hands and chest
  • Evens the skin tone
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Treats wrinkles around eyes, neck, face and mouth

E Matrix Radio Frequency
E Matrix Radio Frequency

HOW IT WORKS

E ­Matrix – Radio Frequency works by increasing collagen production (skin’s natural protein that builds up new skin cells and tissues) to treat deep acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and deep skin irregularities caused by sun exposure, acne and aging.

During the treatment process, small parts of radio frequency energy are made to pass through the skin layer. The radio frequency energy produces heat, which repairs the damaged tissues and stimulates the skin layer to produce collagen naturally that in turn boosts up the formation of new skin cells.

The heat is sent in a controlled manner, ensuring that it reaches the innermost layer of the skin without causing any damage to the outer skin layer.

THE RESULTS

Most people see an improvement straight away with their skin looking clearer and feeling firmer, right after the first treatment session. However, the full benefits will take 6­ – 8 weeks to become visible, as the new collagen is produced.

In general, you would need a minimum of 4 – 6 sessions for optimum results. However, the precise number of sessions would depend on your skin type and the severity of your skin problems.
