Juvederm – Great natural results

Our nurse practitioners achieve long lasting, natural results by using a combination of Juvederm soft dermal fillers.

The Juvederm range

The Juvéderm® range has formulations to treat everything from fine lines to deep folds and wrinkles. Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid facial filler which is smooth and long lasting. During the treatment your physican will inject the gel under your skin using a fine needle. The gel will then fill facial lines and wrinkles or add subtle volume.

Volift

The latest innovation is Juvéderm® VOLIFT® with lidocaine, which delivers a natural look and feel and is excellent for smoothing nasolabial folds. Juvéderm® VOLIFT® with lidocaine has an estimated duration of 15 months.

If you are looking to make your skin smooth, soft and toned Juvéderm® Hydrate helps attract and hold moisture within the skin to restore a healthy natural glow. Your physician can treat your hands, neck, face and décolletage with Juvéderm®Hydrate, which also features an antioxidising agent, helping to prevent the build-up of free radicals in the skin, so the effects of your treatment can be prolonged.

Voluma

One of the products in the range of 5 dermal fillers, called Juvéderm® VOLUMA® with Lidocaine, replenishes lost skin volume to regain a youthful curve to the cheeks and can be used to enhance the overall shape of your face. Juvéderm® VOLUMA®with Lidocaine is an injectable hyaluronic acid volumiser that adds fullness to areas that need a little more support or enhancement. Shortly after treatment with Juvéderm® VOLUMA®with Lidocaine, you should notice that your facial contours appear fuller and rounder, giving your face a softer, more youthful appearance.

Volbella

Juvéderm® adds definition to the mouth and the outline of the face.

Juvéderm® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine is the latest advancement in the Juvéderm® range of facial fillers, developed specifically for your lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel that is injected by your physician, using an ultra-fine needle. It has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to give a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year.

Crow’s feet – are for the birds!

Yellow Crow’s feet would creep round the fading eyes and make them horrible.”The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde

 
As spoken about in literature, magazines and beauty blogs, Crow’s feet is the term for lines and wrinkles that spread like the “Feet of birds” from the corner of our eyes. Usually related to smiling or laughing they are the sign of a jolly demeanor, however if they remain after the smile has gone, or become deeply etched – they may become something you are self conscious about.
At Qutis Clinic we have a number options to help minimise the appearance and prevent the dCrow's feeteepening of these lines.
 
Whether they are “dynamic” lines that only appear when you smile or laugh, or deeper lines there is a solution.

Injectable muscle relaxing treatments

Muscle relaxing treatments including the Botox treatment , Xeomin and Vistabel, can help to soften and smooth lines and wrinkles.

The injection works by blocking the nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of the muscles, that cause wrinkles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out, and the “crow’s feet” begin to fade.

botox injection witneyBefore your  first treatment you will need to be assessed and have your Vistabel, Botox, Azzalure, Bocouture, Xeomin prescribed by a prescribing nurse or practice doctor. You can be reassured that the medical staff at Qutis are well trained, experienced and sought after in the country.

Collagen Loss – Causes and Treatments

What are the physical signs of collagen loss?

Collagen loss results in loss of skin elasticity, sagging, forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s-feet, smile lines, lip lines, marionette lines (the lines framing your mouth).

You may also notice changes to the colour and texture of the skin as well as loss of volume.

 When does loss of Collagen begin?

Facial ageing usually begins in your 20s when the firmness of your skin begins to decrease. Wrinkles, blemishes, and sunspots may also start to appear, becoming more pronounced with age. Of course, changes vary from person to person.

What contributes to Collagen Loss?

Facial ageing is caused by both internal and external factors. Internal (or chronological) factors happen over time and are caused by genetics and the natural ageing process. External (or environmental) factors are things in the world around you, including sun exposure, smoking, pollution, gravity, facial expressions, and sleep position. All of these factors can contribute to changes in the skin, as well as changes in facial bones.

What can we do to reverse collagen loss?

At Qutis we have a variety of options for helping to reverse Collagen loss and stimulate your own production of new collagen. 

The links below will explain some of the options we offer, your nurse practitioner will help you decide which option is best for you;

Lip Filler and Dermal Filler

Why we need lip filler and dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers and lip filler can help to replace the volume we lose over time, leaving us looking refreshed, softer, smoother and more youthful.

As we grow older, the hyaluronic acid we once produced starts to diminish. Our skin becomes dry and facial volume decreases. Gravity pulls the skin down, resulting in folds and sagging.

Our award winning master injectors are experienced in using dermal fillers to help treat:

  • Cheek volume
  • Nose to Mouth lines
  • Forehead Lines
  • Frown Furrows
  • Lip volume
  • Lip definition
  • Acne scarring
  • Crows Feet
  • Noses

Your nurse will decide which product is right for you following your consultation and after understanding your expectations.
