What is LanLuma?
LanLuma filler is a revolutionary body sculpting treatment, helping to replenish collagen in many different areas including the face and the buttocks. It is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) dermal filler that replaces loss of skin volume, promotes the replacement of collagen that’s been lost due to age, treats sagging skin and reduces the effects of ageing.
Once injected into the body, LanLuma treatment goes deep into the skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen to provide long-lasting results. This makes it unique among other dermal fillers, as LanLuma doesn’t simply focusing on ‘filling up’ areas with hyaluronic acid. It works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines gradually as natural collagen is produced over time.
Generally, there are two types of LanLuma injections, which are LanLuma V and X. The first option can be used for the hands and face, while the second option is recommended for larger parts of the body like the buttocks and calves.
What areas can be treated?
It is essential that each patient is accurately assessed before having filler as we prefer to treat the cause of the wrinkle/fold than simply fill the fold. Cheek filler is often the most effective treatment and by volumizing the cheek it can minimise nose to mouth lines and jowls.
The aim is always to create a fresher more youthful version of yourself and not make you look different.
- Face – Revitalize the skin and reduce wrinkles in the chin, jawline, cheeks, temples.
- Hands – Reduce wrinkles and veiny appearance on hands.
- Buttocks – Increase plumpness and reduce the look of a sagging bottom.
- Thighs – Achieve smoother and fuller skin with a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
- Hips – Smooth cellulite and reduce the appearance of hip dips.
What are the benefits of LanLuma
A high level of safety is involved in the procedure, which starts with the components of Lanluma. As it’s made from PLLA, you can rest assured that nothing harmful will be injected into the body. PLLA has been used in the cosmetic field for years and is also utilised in a medical context for surgical procedures.
The treatment is also carried out by Dr Claudia who’ll be able to answer all your questions and take you through each step of the process from start to finish.
Another benefit is that Lanluma injections don’t require any physical surgery. It’s a non-invasive injectable treatment that can be used across multiple parts of the body and tailored to meet your specific requirements.
What can I expect during the treatment?
It all starts with a consultation. Before any treatment begins, Dr Claudia will encourage you to talk through what you’d like to achieve. She’ll look at the areas you’d like to transform, and discuss what’s possible.
Only then, if you are happy to go ahead, treatment can proceed. Unlike other collagen stimulating injectables – for which you will have to schedule another session – Dr Claudia can prepare and use Lanluma within minutes.
After making you comfortable, she will sterilise the area to be treated, and then inject a local anaesthetic. This makes the treatment virtually painless. She will carefully inject Lanluma where you would like to see results – and that’s it.
You’ll feel fine right after the procedure, though there may be a little redness and swelling for a few hours, so it’s a good idea to plan sessions around social engagements.
Depending on the area treated, and how your body reacts, achieving the look you are aiming for will take 1-3 sessions and results will show in the months afterwards as your natural collagen develops.
Are there any side effects?
The downtime for Lanluma filler is minimal and side effects remain mild, you may expect slight discomfort and some swelling. Since the pain is minimal, we recommend that you take a paracetamol if you experience discomfort after treatment.
How many sessions are needed?
1 – 4 sessions as each patient is an individual
The downtime for LanLuma filler is minimal, yet we recommend just a few simple aftercare instructions. Before and after your LanLuma treatment, our expert aestheticians will explain to you the full aftercare procedure.
