Biofil – Natural Dermal Fillers
Biofil – The Natural Alternative To Dermal Fillers at Rugby’s Best Aesthetics Clinic
Helen Taylor Aesthetics Clinic in Rugby has been offering collagen fillers for years and our clients have always been super happy with the results of their treatment. However, collagen isn’t suitable for everyone (there are rare cases of allergy, and it’s not a vegetarian product, for example), and we are often asked whether there’s an alternative to collagen fillers.
The alternative is Biofil, an entirely natural alternative to dermal fillers. Using a plasma-based product extracted from your blood, we can add volume to your face (think fuller lips and cheeks) and reduce your wrinkles.
Helen Taylor has spent a considerable amount of time training and gaining qualifications in procedures based on clients’ own blood and believes this to be one of the most exciting developments in aesthetics in recent years.
Biofil - The Natural Alternative To Dermal Fillers At Top Rugby Clinic
Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles With Biogel Plasma Fillers
Plasma gel – or Biofil– is made from your blood and re-injected into the areas to be treated. It can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to treat larger areas of facial skin. Sounds like magic? No, really it’s more like science!
Helen will take a phial of your own blood and run it through a process of centrifuging and filtering to extract the platelet-rich serum. In turn, this then produces the Biofil gel which can be injected under your skin to add volume, smooth out fine lines and lift saggy areas.
This transfer of plasma into your skin produces growth factors and collagen via your own blood. It also excludes any risk of allergic reactions, because it’s your own biological product in the first place! While Biofil has the same colour and form as your own fat, it is much softer than fat and so we can use it in a far more precise and refined way than if we were simply injecting you with a fat product.
Biofil contains a cocktail of growth factors which promote healing and stimulate your body to produce its own collagen. This means that the results are much more durable than the effects of collagen fillers, because, while an artificial collagen filler diminishes over time, Biofil encourages your own collagen production.
Biofil will gradually absorb back into your body but the results should last between nine and 12 months, during which time you can enjoy a fresher, more youthful-looking appearance. After a series of treatments the effects accumulate such that we believe they may become permanent. The treatment is still relatively new, so we can’t be absolutely sure of this, but research and trials suggest that after 3-5 treatments a more permanent result could be achieved.
What To Expect From Your Biofil Treatment
Taking a vial of your own blood and running it through a process of centrifuging and filtering to extract the platelet-rich serum, the process results in the Biofil gel.
This is then injected under your skin, using a cannula to volumise, lift and rejuvenate your face, neck or hands. Producing growth factors and collagen, it comes minus the risk of any allergic reactions, since we’re using your own biological product to perform the procedure.
Containing a cocktail of growth factors which promote healing and stimulate your body to produce its own collagen, the results of treatment are much more durable than they would be with collagen fillers. The reason for this is simple: while an artificial collagen filler diminishes over time, Biofil encourages your own collagen production.
You must be fit and healthy and over the age of 18 to be eligible for this treatment. You must also have realistic expectations regarding the results.
Please Note: People who suffer from poor wound healing ability, or who have a tendency to abnormal scar formation, are not suitable for Biofil.
Since the patient’s own blood is used, a normal blood sample must first be taken. No sedation is required, and you will be able to drive and function normally following the treatment. Topical numbing can be used to help the area prior to injecting. Side effects include slight swelling, mild reddening and possible bruising. Work may be resumed immediately after the treatment and make-up can be applied a few hours following the procedure.
