Some of us are born with these lines, and some develop with age, as collagen production in the face and body begins to slow down from as early as our mid to late 20’s. As we enter our 30’s and beyond, this reduction in collagen production causes some of the changes we commonly see in our skin.Collagen is the substance in the skin that gives it strength, elasticity and plumpness, meaning that as it decreases, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear and the skin begins to sag and droop. Ageing also contributes to a loss of facial fat, which can leave us looking tired and gaunt. While these are natural symptoms of the ageing process, it can leave many people feeling less confident in their appearance, or as though their appearance doesn’t reflect how they feel inside.Dermal fillers can also be used to treat parts of the face that you might have always had some insecurity about, such as the shape of your lips or cheeks. In both of these cases, dermal fillers can be used to lift, plump, smooth and fill certain areas in the face, reducing fine lines, giving volume to the face and creating facial symmetry and balance.Katie Alex offers dermal filler treatment to clients across the South Manchester and Cheshire area, including Partington, Lymm, High Legh, Mere, Tabley, Knutsford, Mobberley, Ollerton, Chelford, Nether Alderley, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Handforth, Hale and the surrounding area.What Are Dermal Fillers?Injectable dermal fillers are a popular non-surgical procedure for both men and women at Katie Alex Aesthetics in Hale, Cheshire. Dermal fillers can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of the effects of aging, and can also be used to enhance your natural features to give you the appearance you’ve always wanted, such as augmenting the lips or lifting and sculpting the cheeks.The most popular dermal fillers are primarily made of hyaluronic acid, and are Katie’s filler of choice due to their flexibility and high level of safety. They are injected as soft gels under the skin, which effectively augment and restore volume loss, while also working to reduce fine lines and deeper wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a fantastic ingredient that can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, making it perfect for hydrating the skin, restoring volume and creating a healthy glow.Hyaluronic acid also occurs naturally in the body, making hyaluronic fillers some of the safest on the market as they naturally biodegrade over time. This means that repeated treatments are required to maintain optimum results, but increases the safety profile of hyaluronic fillers as the body is able to safely and naturally break down the filler. Hyaluronic filler also gives the most natural-looking results as it moulds to the movement and natural contours of the face, unlike other materials – like collagen, which was a popular filler material in the past – that can end up looking bumpy or unnatural. Dermal filler in the areas of the face with the most movement, such as the lips and cheeks, will deteriorate quicker than more static areas of the face as it moulds and moves with your expression.Due to their impeccable safety profile, hyaluronic based fillers dominate the dermal filler market. Unlike other wrinkle reducing treatments, dermal fillers do not restrict facial expression, and adapt gently to the contours and muscle movements of your face. They are also the most malleable and flexible types of filler, which makes it easy for Katie to gently mould and shape the filler, ensuring your results are smooth, beautiful, natural looking, and perfect for you.Katie Alex specialises in: Lip augmentation. Lip lines. Smokers lines (vertical lines around the top lip). Naso labial folds (nose to mouth lines). Marionette lines (mouth to chin lines).

During the consultation process, Katie will work with you to understand your concerns and the results you want from your treatment, to make sure you get results that meet, or even exceed your expectations, and make you feel more youthful and confident in your appearance.Katie Alex’s dermal fillers of choice are Juvederm’s premium VYCROSS® range from Allergan. Juvederm is a leader in the dermal filler market and their fillers are all FDA Approved. The VYCROSS® range of fillers contain a smoother hyaluronic gel for optimum comfort and precision placement, thus reducing any swelling and bruising, and they also contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, further improving comfort. Katie prefers Juvederm VYCROSS® as they are a very light form of filler and build up volume gently, to help create a more natural look than some other dermal filler brands. The effects of VYCROSS® fillers can also last up to 6 months longer than standard dermal fillers, in some cases up to two years, though this depends on the amount of filler used, as well as where and how it is injected.On the day of your treatment, you will be welcomed to Katie’s private clinic in peaceful Altrincham, Cheshire.
