What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are small injections of gel typically made up of hyaluronic acid. They are used to fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. You can have these fillers in different parts of your face: around the eyes and mouth and in the jawline and cheeks, as well as lip fillers directed directly into the lip tissue.
How do they work?
Fillers basically restore absent volume to your face and plump areas, so that deep-set lines are smoothed. Why is this necessary? Well, as we get older our bodies eventually stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to our youthful appearance. Experts argue over when we start to lose collagen, but the commonly agreed age is 25. This is pretty young, right? Your collagen and elastin levels then decline at a rate of about 2% per year until your late twenties, where your body will have stopped making it altogether.
Fillers have been used for decades to restore lost volume or add lift.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Most dermal fillers will last around 9 months, depending on how your body reacts and which hyaluronic acid is used.
Do dermal fillers have side effects?
It’s completely normal to experience a little bit of discomfort, redness and bruising after the procedure. Reactions generally follow immediately after the needle injection and may include; redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the location of the injection. These reactions are usually mild to moderate and usually vanish shortly after injection and are usually resolved a few days after the injection into the skin.
Do dermal fillers hurt?
There may be a slight discomfort whilst the filler is being inserted into the face. This is minimized by applying an anaesthetic cream before the treatment. To provide additional relief and alleviate as much discomfort as possible, our fillers contain a local pre-mixed anaesthetic.
Is there a difference between Botox and dermal filler?
Yes, there is a 100% difference between Botox and fillers. Botox halts the small muscles in your face from making the movements that cause wrinkles, whilst dermal fillers plump from underneath the wrinkle to smooth them out and encourage the youthful look.
How much do dermal fillers cost?
That depends entirely on how much you’re going to have done.
