Dermal Fillers Now Top Treatment Choices at Northamptonshire Skin Clinic

Share Article

For most skin treatment clinics in the UK, dermal fillers are the second most popular treatment after wrinkle-relaxing injections. However, Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre near Northampton say that the ratio has now reversed for them - more filler treatments are carried out as their clients favour the more sophisticated result which they are able to achieve.

I think it is certainly possible to treat many people with fillers in place of wrinkle-relaxing injections. There are potentially financial benefits for the patients too, as fillers tend to last longer before requiring a repeat treatment.

Anti-wrinkle injections are the world’s most popular non-surgical skin treatment. Yet Dr John Tanqueray at Mulberry House Clinic in Northamptonshire uses far more dermal fillers in his anti-ageing procedures. He argues that they offer patients a far more sophisticated result and should be used more.

Dr Tanqueray MB BCh MRCGP DCH DRCOG DipOccMed BCAM explains:

"I believe we are entering a new era with facial aesthetics. Over the last few years we have developed a much more sophisticated approach to assessing the face."

"A full assessment should identify a range of factors, including facial symmetry and proportion, volume loss, areas of muscle over-activity and skin quality, texture and tone. Often we see evidence of muscle hyperactivity in areas where there has been loss of soft tissue or bony support, and this can lead to distortion around the eyes, brows, mouth and nose."

"It is most interesting that by sensitive use of dermal fillers to provide support to hyperactive muscles they will relax and in turn give a pleasing and completely natural improvement."

"Even more startling is the observation that when we treat one area of the face in this way we will usually see a beneficial effect in another area – for example treatment of the cheek can give benefit to eye shape and brow height, and treatment of the chin can benefit lip shape and lines around the mouth."

Despite the potential to use fillers in a very sophisticated manner, it is estimated that most clinics in the UK still only use dermal fillers for about 3 in every 10 cosmetic injection patients, the rest being treated with wrinkle-relaxing injections. At Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre, the statistic has actually reversed over the last 2 years or so.

Dr Tanqueray continues to explain:

"I think it is certainly possible to treat many people with fillers in place of wrinkle-relaxing injections. There are potentially financial benefits for the patients too, as fillers tend to last longer before requiring a repeat treatment."

"As anti-wrinkle injections can be a simpler treatment to administer, I suspect that they will continue to dominate the treatments at many clinics. However for anyone looking for a sophisticated result and the possibility of retaining their looks over the long term fillers definitely should not be ignored."

"For anybody considering dermal filler treatment, it is important to start by finding the right practitioner and getting good advice based on a comprehensive face to face consultation."
