DERMAL FILLERS

Restoring volume for a fuller, more youthful appearance.

Over time there we all lose volume in our face and lips. Dermal fillers offer a non-surgical treatment to help restore a youthful fullness to your face. 

Fillers are popular treatments used restore lost volume and soften wrinkles caused naturally by ageing. Combined with a local anaesthetic, dermal fillers are injected into the skin to give your face a natural volume, leaving your skin completely hydrated and youthful.

 

Popular areas to add volume are the cheeks, chin and temples, in addition, added definition can be carried out on lips and jawlines

 

Being Part of the MD Codes Training program for advanced practitioners with Allergan allows me to stay at the forefront of the latest developments in this field.

PRODUCTS

My product of choice is Juvederm and Belotero

Juvéderm® and Belotero® are both made from biocompatible, biodegradable materials and contains Hyaluronic Acid, which replaces the naturally existing substance in your skin that repairs damaged tissue.

My experience of the Medished was great. Dil
Is highly professional and has extensive training in aesthetics. She’s a lovely kind person and won’t encourage a client to receive a treatment she doesn’t think necessary but guides you to the most relevant treatment and solution.
She makes her clients feel at ease and talks them through their chosen therapy so they feel confident and comfortable with the procedure. Her after care is incredible too.
I would happily recommend Dil and will certainly be going to the Medished again.

I’m a nervous patient, Dr Kassam made me feel at ease as well as going through any questions and concerns I had. Very happy with the result of my lips as they are natural and I hardly felt any pain. Also shocked with the compliments I got from friends and family.

Dill is amazing!!!! Dill makes you feel really comfortable and will only do what she thinks you need. She’s great at ‘tweaking’ so you don’t feel fake or out of your comfort zone.

8 POINT LIFT

In partnership with Juvederm

Content Woman

WHAT IS THE 8 POINT LIFT?

Facial enhancement and revitalisation have moved beyond wrinkle reduction and surgical facelifts to an approach that subtly rejuvenates patients appearances . It is extremely important that the facial aesthetician has excellent anatomical knowledge to tailor a personalised treatment plan for each patient to achieve the natural look. It targets areas of the mid face to lift, contour and revitalise the whole mid face and lower face. The 8 point lift was developed and pioneered by the world famous plastic surgeon Dr Mauricio De Maio using the new Vycross collection of Juvederm Dermal fillers. 

However, it doesn't have to be 8 points, just as little or as many as needed to create the desired look. 

ADVANTAGES OF THE 8 POINT LIFT

  • The filler is smooth and comfortable during the treatment

  • Minimal downtime

  • Natural results

  • Longer lasting results

  • Suitable for a variety of patients (Results are best evaluated at weeks 2 and week 4)

  • Doesn't have to be 8 points!

DR DIL’S ADVICE ON 8 POINT LIFT

I always say to my patients that facial enhancement is a journey and treatment plans are always evolving according to needs and budget. In my opinion if you are on a budget, patients will benefit most from replacing lost cheek volume. This not only enhances the mid face, but it also improves the appearances of the “nose to mouth lines” and ” sad lines”. This statement is obviously subject to individual facial assessment and consultation. Using small volumes of dermal fillers in 8 points (more or less, depending in the clients needs), can achieve subtle facial enhancement, helping you look and feel your best.

WHY THE JUVEDERM VYCROSS RANGE
OF PRODUCTS?

Vycross products are the latest innovation in the Juvederm range. These products contain hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring component in the skin. It attracts and holds water to provide hydration, structure and volume. As we age the levels of hyaluronic acid in our skin declines. The reason Juvederm Vycross products are so special is that they last longer and are not broken down as quickly. In addition they draw more water in to the skin, hence plump more youthful skin is produced.

There are four products in the Vycross range:

  • Volux: restores volume in chin and jawline

  • Voluma: restores volume in the cheeks, chin, temples and jawlines

  • Volbella: for enhancement of lips

  • Volift : designed for deeper lines and wrinkles including nose to mouth lines and sad lines. Also great in lips.

I will listen to your needs and preferences to create a look you’ll love.
