MUMS clinic offers a host of aesthetic procedures by a team of highly qualified and experienced Specialists in CCG approved multi-clinic.
The Hyaluronic Acid filler is injected into the skin to soften the appearance of wrinkles, lines and scars or into the lip to give a natural volume replacement for a fuller appearance and slow down the signs of ageing.
The filler products are sterile colourless gels composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid is an important component of the skin and serves important functions in creating volume in the tissue.
Consultations for anti-wrinkle injections
Consultations are carried out by highly trained clinicians in aesthetic medicine. Whilst there are a number of fillers available on the market, we use the market-leading established brands that have proven themselves to be safe over many years and of highest quality.
The procedure takes between 10-30 minutes to carry out. The discomfort is minimal (at the time of injection only) as very fine needles are used and local anaesthetic cream can be used. The results are immediate and there is no recovery time, but there can be swelling and bruising after a lip filler for a few days. The most common areas treated are the lower face (including lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines) and scars. The effect of treatment generally last between 12 and 15months, but in the lips can be shorter around 6-9 months. The fillers we use are reversible.
We recommend using topical anaesthetic cream to keep the discomfort to the minimum. Local anaesthetic injection can be used too. Follow up if required is 2-3 weeks after treatment and a leaflet is provided.
At Mums we have an aesthetic doctor and an aesthetic trained registered nurse.
The needle which we use is very tiny the same type used for insulin. Most people don’t feel the injection or just a slight discomfort. If needles terrify you or you don’t want to feel it, talk to use about local anaesthetic.
Of course, apart from some little red bumps from the injection site you should feel no difference. The red bumps will disappear after 20 minutes.
