The use of dermal fillers is a non-surgical way to achieve younger-looking skin. Dermal fillers offer effective treatment for deep lines and wrinkles which are generally caused by sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and even stress.
Boost the Volume of Lips and Cheeks
Dermal fillers plump your skin, filling out wrinkles and associated creases in the skin. They can be used to boost the volume and increase the definition of lips and cheeks by filling the hollows associated with sunken cheeks and smoothing the contours of your face.
The process of injecting dermal filler is a non-evasive treatment which replaces the collagen lost due to natural ageing or skin damage. You may return to daily activities almost instantly following your session.
Temporary or Permanent Results
Fillers are made of a range of materials, which means their effects can be temporary or permanent depending on the type of filler used. The products used will depend on the area being treated and can include collagen (which lasts up to 3 or 4 months), hyaluronic acid (4 to 6 months) and calcium hydroxylapatit (which can last around 18 months). Poly-L-lactic acid must be given over several months but the results may last up to two years. Polymethylmethacrylate beads achieve permanent results; however, they are associated with the most risks.
Following treatment, the area may be swollen, tender and red for around 24 hours. It’s advisable to avoid coffee, alcohol, hot drinks and the sun during this time. The possible side effects of using dermal fillers can include:
Rashes, swelling, itching and bruisingInfectionFiller forming lumps beneath the skin – may need to be treated with medication or surgery
Clients usually feel well enough to leave the clinic around 30 minutes after the procedure. Recovery time is not required for dermal fillers. Your aesthetician will be able to discuss the process with you at length at the beginning of your appointment, including your recovery and what to expect from the process.
