Mr Olivier Amar says: “I often see women who are concerned that fillers will not look natural. I can reassure them that when treatment is done in an elegant, discreet way, they will look subtly rejuvenated without appearing to have had anything done.”
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are injected to help diminish facial lines and creases, restore lost youthful fullness to the face and sculpt the features for a more balanced and defined appearance.
Fillers are probably best known for improving the volume and definition of lips or cheeks. But today, they are increasingly being used to enhance and shape other areas of the face such as the jaw and chin.
Dermal fillers can be helpful alone or as part of a comprehensive, bespoke programme of facial rejuvenation.
Mr Olivier Amar uses only fillers made of an absorbable, non-permanent form of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of healthy, youthful skin.
WHY CONSIDER DERMAL FILLERS?
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. Smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. We may develop hollows under the eyes and cheeks can appear flatter.
You might consider dermal fillers to:
- Plump thin lips
- Restore the curve of the cheek
- Create the illusion of higher and more prominent cheekbones
- Soften facial wrinkles and folds, such as those on the forehead, between the brows and from the nose to the corner of the mouth (the nasolabial fold)
- Reposition the downturned corner of the mouth
- Define and sculpt the jaw and enhance the chin for a balanced, youthful and structured jawline
- Improve the appearance of bumps or other irregularities on the nose (non-surgical rhinoplasty)
- Remove under-eye hollows and shadows for a less tired appearance
- Fill hollows at the temples to subtly lift the outer brow
- Restore a smooth and youthful contour to the face
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
For your safety, Mr Olivier Amar personally examines every patient and takes a medical history before considering the correct course of treatment for them. If fillers are the right treatment for you, he can apply numbing cream or use filler mixed with a numbing substance (Lidocaine) before carefully and delicately injecting an appropriate filler to achieve your desired result.
He uses a gradual, step-by-step process to ensure a refined effect.
You will see results immediately, though there may be some initial swelling.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are naturally and safely reabsorbed by the body over time. The absorption rate depends on factors including the concentration and type of filler used and the patient’s own metabolism. HA fillers can last between a few months to a year.
WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES?
In expert hands, dermal fillers are an effective and safe way to rejuvenate the face. Mr Olivier Amar successfully treats many patients in this way. However, fillers are most suitable for patients with reasonably firm, elastic skin.
It is important to understand that treatments may need to change as you grow older and the proportions of your face change. In patients with an excess of sagging skin, fillers may no longer give them the natural rejuvenated look they desire. At this point other approaches, such as a minimally invasive face or neck lift, may offer a better outcome.
Mr Olivier Amar will be able to discuss all your options during your consultation.
