DERMAL FILLER AND IT'S PURPOSES

What is HA Dermal Filler?

Dermal filler is a natural substance from within the body containing hyaluronic acid. It can be used in specific areas below eye level to enhance profile, remove unwanted lines, rejuvenate and used to contour or correct a desired area needing correction, lacking elasticity, needing volume,hydration and to help diminish unwanted lines and creases.

Dermal filler can be used to the following areas of the face. 

 

Nose - known as liquid non surgical rhinoplasty. Dermal filler used to enhance the profile of the nose, reducing bridge bumps and to enhance the tip of the nose which also helps along with the length. It can require a top up depending on the person.

Again all will be discussed within the consultation of gaining those desired results.

Cheeks - Dermal filler is used to lift & enhancing profile of the cheeks. To gain youthful appearance if volume has been lost. Creating contour and definition for those desired wanted high cheek bones or gain volume on the cheeks due to elasticity lost.

9-12 months depending on person & aftercare is followed correctly. 

 

Lips - Bonitos signature techniques can gain enhancement of the lips depending on desired look wanted. Dermal filler creates or enhance’s the cupid’s bow, shape, define, restore rejuvenation, correct and gain a smooth finish.

Gradual building is safer as less trauma to the lips gaining better results.

Lasting time 6-12 months depending on the person and correct aftercare is followed to help maintain the product.

 

Deep & fine Lines - Restoring a youthful & rejuvenated look. It can be a process depending on how deep the lines are. It’s all about training, softening and aiming to get rid of unwanted lines & creases. Results can be instant.

The areas are:

 

Nasolabial folds (smile lines), Marionette Lines & Jowls - enhancing a rejuvenated youthful look. Removing and training those unwanted lines & creases. Smokers lines training or removing unwanted lines & creases.  Lasting 6-12months 

 

Chin - Dermal filler can create definition for the jowl area and profile along with removing lines & dimples creating a sharper look or gaining definition for profile. This can be a great combination with jawline filler.

Lasting 6-12 months

 

Jawline - Restoring definition to the lower face to gain the chiselled subtle youthful look. Combined with cheek and chin this can be a great overall look to your profile.

6-12 months 

 

Dermal filler can also be used for other lines not in the danger zones & can be great for scar correction.

When Can I Have More Dermal Filler?

The same brand can be used 2-3 weeks later depending on the person and if you wish to change brand you will have to wait 6 weeks.

Can Dermal Filler Be Removed?

I am qualified to carry out and administer in an emergency situation, dissolving the filler using hyaluronidase.

This substance mixed with saline breaks down unwanted filler the side effects can result in swelling and bruising until the filler is broken down can take up to a couple of days to calm down and may need more than one session to get the filler gone.

Upon consultation I will assess and review in two weeks. 

 

Your natural lips will reinstate and you can by all means have new dermal filler and start a new journey if you wish to.

Costs will apply by the amount you wish to have and a review by myself is carried out & no more dissolving needs to be done then this can be carried out.

 

A patch test will be required if a client generally wants to dissolve & correct or start again.

However in emergency it is the safest option to reduce any major complications. Hyaluronidase is prescribed to me as a prescription by my prescriber and is always to hand. A Patch test is required to ensure you are suitable to and it’s safe to administer the substance.

ANTI-WRINKLE TOXIN

Toxin is administered with insulin injections (very tiny) to the muscles to temporarily relax and remove or soften unwanted wrinkles and lines in 3 areas below. The toxin will reach full effect by up to 14 days. It can last anywhere between 3-6 months 

Toxin is prescribed to me by my prescriber who will assess you to see if you are suitable for treatment prior and if suitable I can order for the next day. Just to add I pay prescription fees and other fees to carry out this treatment so please be mindful that the toxin is prescribed in your name and appointment needs to be followed up. So please be serious when considering this treatment.

 

Frontalis - Softening or removing Horizontal forehead lines depending on how deep the lines are & Lifting the brows.

 

Corrugators supercilii - To remove or soften frown lines depending on how deep the lines are.

 

Lateral or orbicularis oculi - Crows feet - (eye level) the purpose is for removing or softening the lines and to give the brow tail lift.

 

Anti toxin can also be placed to lift the tail of the brows if you option for this specifically.

 

Anti wrinkle toxin Can require a top up upon consultation 2 weeks later and there is an additional cost for this £30. Every person’s muscles are different and it is best to under dose rather than over dose. Some people require some movement or prefer the more tighter look can be discussed upon consultation with myself.

 

The treatment is required 3-4 months apart for the first year. Over time the muscles relax and the receptors become less active you will need less treatments getting further and further apart if you keep up with having toxin. Men require more units as it is known they have naturally stronger muscles. 

 

The treatment is a safe & sufficient process along with minimal pain & downtime along with minor side effects like bruising & swelling. This treatment is temporary & will eventually return to its natural state. Keeping up is key!

BROW MICROBLADING

A semi permanent treatment for those who have hair loss over time or due to having to be treated with chemotherapy & can have microblading if treatment has stopped or those who have other health conditions. I can also correct & cover previous faded tattoos, faded microblading upon assessment it may not require just a top up as I may have to cover previous work and correct.

 

Microblading can be great for enhancing brow definition for a fuller look. To gain the perfect brows to suit your face shape I measure and create by ur natural face shape, using the golden ratio rule to gain perfect pre drawed brows.

 

Numbing cream is then applied 20 minutes before the procedure is carried out. Hair strokes are placed with creative skill and technique, creating natural hair like strokes to fill in any gaps and to lengthen if needed as prior to assessment and will be carried out before your treatment to ensure you are gaining those desired brows!

 

Exclusive to Bonitos- 

  • Top quality pigment is used. 

  • When needing a top up pink or orange patches is definitely not the case when having microblading done with bonitos just brown faded hair strokes in time for top up.

  • Requires top up to complete the full session and must be taken within 5-6 weeks later which is included in the price

 

Lasting 12-18 months depending on the person. Patch testing will be carried for pigmentation.

 

Making your treatments as comfortable as possible during and after.

 

All treatments are carried out with numbing cream applied to the area being treated 20 minutes before to help with any discomfort and will ease the pain with injections.

 

It is a relaxed & calming environment Ensuring you are fully distracted with music and other distraction mechanisms to help along with your treatment.

It is natural to feel nervous some more than others but I can guarantee you will be back and you will walk away with a total different outlook if you are nervous or had previous bad experiences.

Sometimes the build up to your treatment can enhance your nerves. 

Being as calm as possible during treatment is vital and helps along with a smooth process to gain those best results.

 

I have the ability to get anyone through I have had clients in that normally faint and don’t, clients who have needle phobia and have overcome that fear. I am very comforting, I have great sense of humour and can make you smile. I will always offer a drink or a break especially if having more than one treatment and ensure that I am with you through the whole process step by step. All treatments are carried out safely and in a clinical sterile environments using top quality CE approved products.
