Love your natural look….Dermal Fillers Kent
As we age, we inevitably start to lose elasticity in our skin, which can make us look dull, tired and not as youthful as we once were. At rtwskin Clinic, we specialise in a revolutionary treatment called the 8 Point facelift, which combats those signs of ageing using the most advanced techniques to volumise and subtly lift the face to create a rejuvenated, fresh and youthful appearance. Allergan’s range of Juvéderm, dermal fillers are strategically placed into eight key points of the face, creating a beautiful, yet natural result. The areas treated are cheeks, eye area (teartrough), nasolabial folds (smile lines), jawline, lower cheeks and marionette lines. These are general guidelines, and the areas treated will be tailored to your specific needs and the look you want to achieve. Unlike a surgical facelift, the 8 Point facelift has minimal downtime, with no general anaesthetic, no stitches and minimal healing time. You may experience slight bruising and swelling, which should subside within a few days.
The treatment typically takes around 30-60 minutes. There is minimal discomfort as the dermal fillers used do contain a small amount of Lidocaine, which is a local anaesthetic. Following your treatment, you will be provided with an aftercare and management plan; you can return to normal activities. However, you should avoid very strenuous activity for two days and avoid massaging the treated area for five days. The effects of this treatment last up to 12 months; this can vary from person to person.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural element within our bodies. It binds water, making it very hydrating for your skin, as well as adding volume. As we age, the natural hyaluronic acid content of skin loses the capacity to store water, meaning the skin loses moisture, volume, becomes drier and thinner, and regenerates less efficiently. The loss of volume results in sagging/drooping skin. Hyaluronic acid is in the form of a crystal-clear gel, which is injected to restore lost volume to your face, smoothing lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid gel comes in different viscosity and particle size so that with the most appropriate treatment for specific wrinkles can be utilised. Hyaluronic acid gives volume to your skin, your facial expression without altering your natural appearance.
Treatments typically take around 30-60 minutes and the discomfort level is minimal. The results are instant and last for up to 18 months and there is no downtime associated with the procedure – making it a very popular treatment.
