As we grow older, we may develop short horizontal lines radiating outwards from the corners of our mouth. These lines can give the mouth a straight or even downturned, sad appearance and can age the face.
At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we are completely focused on you as an individual and will always strive to give you a natural-looking end result that exceeds your expectations and makes you feel confident about your appearance.
Types of Dermal Filler treatments
At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we use a range of hyaluronic acid fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE®. These are non-permanent fillers and their effects typically last for six to 12 months.
The hyaluronic acid used in these dermal fillers is produced biosynthetically by bacterial fermentation. (Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their shape).
We use longer lasting calcium hydroxyl appatite RADIESSE® fillers. RADIESSE® is a unique dermal filler made from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in a water based gel carrier. It is 100% biocompatible, so no allergy testing is required before use. RADIESSE® is biodegradable and will gradually break down and be absorbed by your body. However, the results are longer lasting than those of the non-permanent hyaluronic acid fillers, typically lasting for 12 months or longer in many patients.
Patients express a high level of satisfaction with each of these products.
