A dermal filler is a non-invasive treatment which results in very little downtime in comparison with alternative surgeries. The process is used to address a number of concerns regarding facial ageing, including deep lines and wrinkles.

The non-surgical way to achieve younger-looking skin, dermal fillers ensure you achieve a softer, younger look by adding volume to reduce or remove the tired lines and wrinkles which are caused by the gradual loss of collagen which shapes and supports skin. Aged skin is worsened by sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and stress amongst other contributing factors.

Dermal filler will smooth out the deep creases which form from the nose to the mouth, otherwise known as nasolabial folds or laughter lines. The process also plumps thin lips and smooths out vertical lines on the edge of the lips.

Fillers can also be used to augment cheeks, enhancing their shape and restoring a youthful complexion, or fill out hollows under the eyes. The increase in volume can also be beneficial for filling out gauntness in your lower cheeks or temple. If you have suffered with acne or chicken pox, dermal filler can even out the resulting indented scars on your skin.

How do they work?

Fillers are made of synthetic or natural materials which are injected into the skin to plump the area until the wrinkle, hollow or fold is gone. A combination of the different types of filler will help you to achieve the desired look as the product used depends on the area being treated. It’s important to choose a practitioner who has plenty of experience using the various types of filler, rather than those who only specialise in one.

Fillers are injected in small, controlled doses, just under the surface of the skin which requires treatment, using an ultra-fine needle. First, the practitioner will cleanse the area to be treated before applying a numbing cream which ensures the injections cause only minor discomfort.
