About Facial Fillers
Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient found naturally in the human body, acting very much like a natural sponge that attracts water and gives our skin its youthful and plump look.
As we age, we naturally produce less Hyaluronic Acid. Therefore, the process of the sagging if our skin ultimately leads to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of volume.
By synthesising Hyaluronic Acid into a dermal filler form with variable thickness gels, scientists have provided aesthetic practitioners with a fantastic tool to restore natural youthfulness to the face.
Around 12-18 month after your treatment, the body will start to naturally degrade the Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler over time. To maintain results you will be able to book a follow-up dermal fillers treatment at our London practice.
During a consultation with our doctor you will discuss which areas of your face and skin concern you and how Dermal Fillers can improve the volume and contours of your face.
We use different brands and varied thickness levels of Hyaluronic Acid gels, all with differing properties suited to address a variety of concerns, from fine-lines and wrinkles to lip plumping.
Hyaluronic Acid based Dermal Fillers contain naturally synthesised ingredients and are suitable for men and women of all skin types, unless you have a known allergy to any of the ingredients.
If you are pregnant or currently breast feeding you will not be suitable for dermal filler treatment and will need to await the period of weaning your child before we can embark on a treatment plan.
Dermal Filler London are office-based treatments which are well tolerated by most people with little to no discomfort.
The treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes during which time several injection points will be used to administer the correct amount of product needed to enhance or correct the targeted facial area.
The duration of the procedure depends on how many parts of the face (or body) are to be treated, starting from 5 minutes for just one part of the face, up to half an hour for the entire face. There is no recovery time required and it is possible to return to normal activities within a few hours.
Dermal filler in our London prcatice are completed within one treatment session. Repeat treatments will be required in 12 to 18 months or when the desired effect starts to wear off.
Normally only one treatment is required but as with all procedures, the response and the duration of the effect depends on each patient and, if the physician deems it necessary, Endolift® can be repeated with no collateral effects.
Mr Ghanem is a Key Opinion Leader for Endolift® and an approved trainer for the procedure so you know you are in safe hands.
Dermal Fillers injections are not painful for most people, especially as many of the products that we use contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic.
On occasions we can also use a topical anesthetic or numbing cream which is applied to the skin shortly before we start the treatment to reduce any discomfort.
Dr. Ali Ghanem is an expert in pain management and putting his patients at ease.
You should expect some minor redness and tenderness at the injection points. You may also experience some moderate swelling, especially after lip treatments. Bruising may also occur in some people. All of these should last no more than a week.
Downtime is limited allowing you to return to your normal life and activities immediately.

Dermal Fillers in our London practice are long-lasting, but the product is naturally metabolized in the body over time.
