Our faces are constantly active, expressing our
emotions and enabling us to communicate effectively with each
other. However, this constant activity eventually begins to show on
our faces in the form of lines and wrinkles that can become
more pronounced as we age.
Facial lines and wrinkles can be successfully
reduced through the use of dermal fillers and / or BOTOX® injections.
At Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic, we are completely
focused on you as an individual and will always strive to give you
a natural-looking end result that exceeds your expectations and
makes you feel confident about your appearance.
Types of Dermal Filler
At Cardiff Cosmetic
Clinic, we use a range of hyaluronic acid fillers, such
as JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE®. These
are non-permanent fillers and their effects typically last for six
to 12 months.
The hyaluronic acid
used in these dermal fillers is produced biosynthetically by
bacterial fermentation. (Hyaluronic acid is a natural
substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to
the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their
We use longer lasting
calcium hydroxyl appatite RADIESSE®fillers. RADIESSE® is a unique dermal filler made
from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in a
water based gel carrier. It is 100% biocompatible, so no allergy
testing is required before use. RADIESSE® is biodegradable and will
gradually break down and be absorbed by your body.
However, the results are longer lasting than those of
the non-permanent hyaluronic acid fillers, typically lasting
for 12 months or longer in many patients.
Patients express a
high level of satisfaction with each of these products.
