Titus Adams favours the use of Merz fillers. These are clear, non-animal, biodegradable gels based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid (HA) that is formulated in different ways to provide more longevity and with different viscosities (thicknesses). These properties allow us to use slightly different types of filler to manage separate area of the face; using gentle fillers in the lips, through to a thicker filler in the deep temples or deeper mid cheek area. These gels are injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. When injected into the skin, they produce volume that smoothes wrinkles or folds, or change toe shape of some features to improve the cosmetic outcome, yet in a natural way. These products contain a small amount of local anaesthetic to reduce the discomfort during and following their injection.
Immediately after the treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising at the treated area. This is a normal result of the injections. The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears in a day or two. If these symptoms continue, or if other reactions occur, please contact Titus Adams’ team and you will be seen immediately.
Following some treatments, especially to the lips, swelling may take up to a week to settle and the appearance can be startling at first.
Since the fillers used are a natural substance already present in and under the skin, the treatment causes little in the way of reaction. However, the benefits do not last forever and many people choose to come back to have further treatment months later.
