What are dermal fillers?
A dermal filler is a substance which is injected into the skin to plump it up, make it firmer and smooth out lines and wrinkles.
We use synthetically produced non-animal products consisting of hyaluronic acid which is a natural chemical constituent of the skin. These products are far less likely to produce allergic reactions than old-fashioned dermal fillers such as collagen which is derived from cow hide.
What can dermal fillers improve?
We can use dermal fillers to fill out lines and wrinkles around your eyes.
Are dermal fillers safe?
The dermal fillers we use are extremely safe with a low incidence of allergic reaction. There is, however, a very small possibility of allergic reaction, which will be discussed with you. You can expect some degree of redness and swelling after the treatment, which usually clears up within 1-2 days.
How are dermal fillers applied?
Dermal fillers are injected, usually without the need for local anaesthetic, into lines and wrinkles to plump them out. The dermal filler then remains in the skin, where it binds water to produce a lift and give firmness to the treated area.
How long do dermal fillers take
A dermal filler treatment usually take around 30 minutes
How long do dermal fillers last?
Typically, the results of dermal fillers can last six to nine months but this varies from one person to another. The filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles or lips will ultimately return to their previous appearance without top up treatments.
