As the years go by, the natural levels of Hyaluronic Acid in our skin decreases, which can result in a loss of skin tone and firmness.
This is usually noticeable on the face, neck, décolletage, lower eyelids and the back of the hands and can be caused by continued and excessive sun and UV exposure, along with the natural ageing process.
Over the counter anti-ageing creams and moisturisers can help to hydrate your skin, allowing it to feel smoother and more refreshed, but due to the fact that these creams only lie on the surface of the skin without any penetration into the deeper layers where real hydration takes place, the results are only short-lived and overtime can actually significantly weaken your skin’s natural defenses and structure.
At Regency Aesthetics we use specific dermal fillers called Restylane Vital and Juvederm Hydrate, which work to reverse the effects of ageing and sun damage quickly and effectively. These specially formulated dermal fillers work to diminish the effects of sun damage and ageing by enhancing your skin’s natural hydration where it is needed most and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, keeping your skin looking hydrated and plump and improving the tone, texture and overall health of your skin.
Hyaluronic acid works to attract water into the skin, whilst also playing an important part in the skin’s hydration. With the use of Restylane Vital or Juvederm Hydrate in the face, décolletage and hands, both skin improved.
Although Juvederm Hydrate and Restylane Vital skin hydration treatments give outstanding results alone, when combined with some of our other cutting- edge skin rejuvenation treatments such as Dermaroller Therapy, more dramatic results can be achieved.

Duration of Results
What will treatment involve?
Your doctor will inject the filler (in small quantities) into the areas where you have lines/wrinkles or indents. It will take approximately 20-30 minutes with instant effects.
Number of treatments?
For optimal results, we recommend that you undergo a minimum of three treatments spaced at four weeks apart. Due to the fact that these particular fillers maintain a reservoir of hyaluronic acid over a period of time, the benefits of the treatment can generally last for several months and can be maintained by undergoing top-up treatments once or twice a year, but there are no restrictions on how often you can undergo treatment, as we appreciate that everyone is an individual with different needs and desires.
How do Dermal Fillers work?
HA (Hyaluronic acid) within the Injectable filler gel adds volume to the skin. This plumps and hydrates the skin giving it more volume, but also improving the surface of the skin. Dermal fillers can be used for all different types of facial wrinkles and folds, with more filler being used depending on the individual.
Dermal Fillers are very safe when carried out by a professional physician. The HA gel is completely natural and is actually re absorbed by the body over time.
What are the possible side effects?
Side effects are temporary including swelling, and some redness. Depending on the individual these can last 48 hours or be almost non-existent.
You should not have fillers if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
Almost instantly, some swelling and redness may take 12-48 hours to disappear.
Be gentle when washing the treatment area. Refrain from touching or rubbing the treatment area for 12 hours.
Avoid subjecting the treatment area to other aesthetic treatments. Use of Sunbeds or Saunas is not recommended for 48 hours post treatment due to risk of infection.
