09.03.20 Newest generation of P(LA/CL) threads now available at Bangor Medical Aesthetics

There are different types of threads used in aesthetics:

1.PDO Threads
The most used threads in Europe .This are the most used threads also by Bangor Medical Aesthetics . Are the safest and have the least side effects and most reliable for first time use.

PDO thread is bioabsorbable suture made with synthetic molecule called Polydioxanone. Polydioxanone suture provides wound support for longer period as compared to other synthetic absorbable sutures. Polydioxanone suture also offers far superior tensile strength. Polydioxanone suture is made from polymerizing para dioxanone monomer.

Absorption of suture is by simple hydrolysis within 180 days from implantation day. The duration of effects are more than one year due to the continued effects of the induced collagen production in the body.

Absorption of polydioxanone suture is very reliable and predictable. This material is used in surgery and aesthetics for many years .

25.09.19 Juvéderm® VOLUX fillers for volume replacement in the cheek, chin and jaws for only 250 £ per ml

At Bangor medical Aesthetics we are pleased to be able to offer you Allergan's latest hyaluronic acid injectable gel using the patented VYCROSS® technology and specifically formulated to restore and create volume.

Juvéderm® VOLUX allows us to sculpt the cheek, chin and jaw area,giving facial definition that can last for up to 18–24 months.

According to research 51% (n=1,707) of people want to reshape their chin or jawline.,
In April 2019, Allergan plc (NYSE: AGN) – launched Juvéderm®VOLUX at the 17th Aesthetic & Anti-Aging World Congress (AMWC) in Monaco. Juvéderm® VOLUX represents the latest innovation in Allergan's extensive range of Juvéderm® facial fillers. Juvéderm®VOLUX contains hyaluronic acid (HA) and uses the unique patented VYCROSS® technology. The product has been specially formulated to restore and create volume in the chin and jaw area for up to 18-24 months.

As we get older, several factors can contribute to how the lower face ages including genetics, soft tissue and bone structure changes, repetitive facial expressions and environmental elements.
Many people start to lose definition around the chin, neck and jawline area, often changing the shape of the face.

Interestingly, Allergan research shows that 51% (n = 870) of people want to change their lower face shape. In other research, women report the ideal lower face shape is a symmetrical, 'oval' shape with good proporation, which provides a defined jaw line with clear definition between the neck and chin area.

"Our face shape changes as we age: skin begins to thin and lose its plumpness, while drooping soft tissue can lead to the appearance of jowls,"

"Until now, non-invasive treatment options for the lower face have been limited. Juvéderm® VOLUX is the perfect solution for patients who want a more defined look around the lower face without having to resort to surgery - the gel enables us to restore volume so that the jawline appears tauter and more defined."

The importance of facial definition

Consumer research shows that 7 in 10 (70% / n = 17,929)π of people care about the way their face looks, and according to many experts the appearance of the lower face can play an important role in our perceived facial attractiveness.

Beauty is often described using three key tenets: symmetry, balance and harmony. Some women describe the ideal lower face shape as a defined jawline and a firm, toned chin.
Juvéderm® VOLUX, a structural gel, now provides a better treatment option for those want to define the chin and jawline areas.

Results with Juvéderm® VOLUX

In a trial Juvéderm® VOLUX delivered high satisfaction with 95% of patients (n = 85) reporting they were satisfied with the results three months after treatment. The setup of this study was unique as the primary goal was to evaluate the mean change in facial angle from baseline compared with a control group. At 18 months, 62% of patients (n = 79) still felt their results were positive.

Like all other facial filler products we use at Bangor Medical Aesthetics, Juvéderm® VOLUX contains lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience.

Juvéderm® VOLUX clinical study showing duration beyond 18 months after initial treatment or initial + top-up treatment in the chin and jaw, as well as clinical results showing 24 month duration in the mid-face established Juvéderm® VOLUX as having an in situ duration of 18–24 months.
The fillers work by restoring lost volume in the face, filling lines and wrinkles and hydrating skin with results that can last from 9-24 months, depending on the treatment chosen.

HA is an ingredient known to moisture the skin, helping return its elasticity and tone to produce natural, healthy-looking skin.
