Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to restore lost volume for a more youthful appearance. Fillers can be used on the face to soften wrinkles and creases, restore fuller lips and even smooth out the skin on your hands.
Best Dermal Filler Areas The face loses volume and contour when we age, the bones and the soft tissue dissolve and contribute to appearance of sagging. Dermal fillers may be used to replace this volume loss and restore the structural support, giving the patient a more youthful appearance. The aim is to make the face more harmonious and rejuvenated.
For instance, the lips may be injected to improve their shape, size, symmetry and proportion. The cheeks may be injected to make a face more defined and attractive. An underdeveloped chin may be injected to make it appear more projected and proportionate. The nose may be injected to improve the shape and its contour.
Results are seen instantly after the treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following 2–4 weeks. Results can last between 9–18 months although optimal results can be maintained over a long period of time through regular repeated treatments. The lengevity varies from person to person depending on your requirements and the severity of the wrinkles that are being treated, in addition to the particular dermal filler being administered.
Dermal fillers come in various forms, including Dysport®, Sculptra®, Restylane®, Stylage® and Revanesse®. The most common fillers consist of non-animal hyaluronic acid. Other fillers consist of a synthetic suspended in aqueous gel, but also naturally occurring and naturally degraded by our own body.
Yes, dermal fillers can be used to correct acne scars, however, based upon the scars themselves, they may not be fully cured. An injection could cause a cold sore as the virus that causes cold sores can lay dormant in a person’s body until reactivated, which can be triggered by stress or trauma.
After your treatment we will again go through with you any after care advice in order to maximise your treatment benefits and avoid any undesirable side effects.
You can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment.
As with any type of injection there may be some slight redness immediately afterwards. Camouflage make up may be applied.
The results directly after the treatment should therefore not be seen as the final results. This is because over the following 2 weeks the results will gradually improve.
For 2 weeks after the treatment you are advised to avoid extreme heat (sun bed or sunbathing) or intense cold.
