Dermal fillers are a popular option for anyone who wants a younger looking face without having a face lift. Dermal fillers will restore volume lost from ageing and smooth out creases, wrinkles and lines. These fillers rejuvenate your face by using a gel type substance injected into problem areas of your face.

 

What Can You Treat With Dermal Fillers?

 

Dermal fillers can be used to reshape or re-contour facial features, add volume to cheeks and lips, and reshape the nose or jawline.

 

What are dermal fillers made of and how do they work?

The most commonly used fillers are Hyaluronic Acid based. Hyaluronic Acid is a complex sugar that is contained in the body throughout the epithelial, connective and neural tissues and especially in the skin. As it is a naturally occurring substance, it is safe, effective; therefore, allergic occurrence is minimal.

 

Is the Treatment Painful?

 

You will experience minor discomfort during the injection of fillers. Topical anaesthetic will be applied to the skin before the procedure to minimize the needle pain. Most fillers are viscous, so when they are injected, they stretch the skin and cause injection pain. However, bespoke fillers such as Juvederm contains lidocaine, which makes the treatment much more comfortable.

 

How Will I Feel and How Long Before I See Results?

 

The results of soft tissue augmentation using dermal fillers are apparent immediately and will last from several months (6 to 18 months) depending on the filler used and the patient injected. Maintaining good overall health and strong skin with appropriate products the treatments will improve the results and longevity.

 

Are There Any Serious Side Effects?

 

Side effects of hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary and should only last a few days. They may include bleeding from the injection sites, swelling and bruising, redness and tenderness at the site of the injection. More serious side effects or risks may include ulceration, scarring, infection and an allergic reaction.

 

Are Dermal Fillers Suitable For Everyone?
