When you’ve had your fill

Here’s what you need to know to stay safe along with alternative treatments and skincare to plump and boost.
And remember – anti ageing and cosmetic procedures aren’t about desperately trying to look 20 something for ever, but looking great for the age you are – which Courtney Cox is now clearly embracing.

The popularity of dermal fillers has grown so rapidly that it is estimated there are now over 160 fillers available in the UK market alone, some of which promise temporary effects and others permanent.
The most widely used and the safest fillers are made from Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body and rarely causes any reactions, such as the market leaders Restylane, Voluma, Juvederm, Hydrafill and Belotero  – and the results will usually last up to one year.  These are always our fillers of choice as they look natural and are easily reversible with an injection of enzyme called hyaluronidase, which will instantly dissolve the filler, so you can get you back to where you used to be in a matter of hours. A reversal procedure can cost anywhere from £300 for a small lump or two, to £500 for an extensive problem like overfilled cheeks and lips but you usually need only one treatment.
However, filler reversal is usually only effective for HA fillers, and will not work on Radiesse, Artefill, or Silicone. If you are not happy with those types of dermal fillers, the only option is to wait until they dissolve naturally (Radiesse), or to have them surgically removed (Artefill and Silicone).
