What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that are used to restore volume and fullness to the face, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hollow areas. The most common type of dermal filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that helps maintain moisture and firmness in the skin. Other types of fillers may include substances such as calcium hydroxylapatite or poly-L-lactic acid.
Facial aesthetics has evolved significantly over the years, providing individuals with a range of options to enhance their features and combat signs of aging. Dermal fillers have emerged as a go-to treatment for addressing volume loss, wrinkles, and sagging skin. This article will delve into the details of dermal fillers, explaining how they work, their benefits, and what you can expect from the treatment.

The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Restoring Volume and Fullness
One of the primary benefits of dermal fillers is their ability to restore volume and fullness to the face. As we age, the natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid decreases, leading to sagging skin and loss of facial volume. Dermal fillers help counteract these effects, providing a more youthful and plump appearance.
Softening Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Dermal fillers are effective in softening the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. By filling in the creases and adding volume to the skin, the filler smooths out these imperfections, resulting in a more youthful and smoother complexion.
Enhancing Facial Contours
Dermal fillers can be used to enhance and define certain facial features. They can be injected into areas such as the cheeks, chin, or lips to create a more balanced and proportionate look. This versatility allows individuals to achieve their desired aesthetic goals, whether it's achieving fuller lips or enhancing cheekbones.
Non-Surgical and Minimal Downtime
One of the significant advantages of dermal fillers is that they are non-surgical and require minimal downtime. The procedure is performed in a clinic or medical spa, typically takes less than an hour, and most individuals can resume their daily activities immediately afterward.
Long-Lasting Results
While the longevity of dermal filler results can vary depending on factors such as the type of filler used and individual metabolism, most fillers provide results that last anywhere from six months to two years. Maintenance treatments can be done to prolong the effects and achieve optimal results over time.
Reversible and Adjustable
Another advantage of dermal fillers is that they are reversible and adjustable. In the event that the desired outcome is not achieved or if changes are desired, the filler can be dissolved or adjusted by a skilled practitioner.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers work by replenishing the volume lost due to aging or other factors. When injected into the skin, the filler substance fills in wrinkles and folds, plumps up sagging skin, and adds volume to areas that may have become hollow or sunken over time. The results are instant, providing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Dermal Fillers FAQ's

If you don't see the information you are looking for, Contact Us, our team are waiting to assist you.
Dermal fillers, when administered by a qualified and experienced professional, are generally considered safe. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. It's crucial to choose a reputable practitioner who will assess your suitability for the treatment, discuss any potential risks, and address your concerns.
The level of discomfort experienced during the dermal filler procedure can vary from person to person. Most fillers contain a numbing agent, such as lidocaine, to enhance comfort during the injection. Additionally, topical numbing creams can be applied before the treatment. While some individuals may feel a slight pinch or stinging sensation, the procedure is generally well-tolerated.
The results of dermal fillers are visible immediately after the treatment. However, it's important to note that there may be some initial swelling or bruising, which can temporarily mask the full results. Once any swelling subsides, the true outcome of the treatment becomes more apparent.
Dermal fillers may have some temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These effects usually resolve within a few days. In rare cases, more severe complications, such as infection or allergic reactions, may occur. Choosing a qualified practitioner and following their aftercare instructions can help minimise the risk of adverse effects.
Yes, dermal fillers can be combined with other facial aesthetic treatments to achieve comprehensive results. Many individuals choose to combine fillers with treatments such as botulinum toxin injections, chemical peels, or laser therapy for a more holistic approach to facial rejuvenation. It's important to consult with your practitioner to determine the most suitable treatment plan for your specific needs.
The longevity of dermal fillers varies depending on factors such as the type of filler used, the treated area, and individual factors. On average, most hyaluronic acid-based fillers last between six months to two years. However, some fillers may provide longer-lasting results. It's recommended to discuss the expected duration of the chosen filler with your practitioner.

From making the initial call with Sarah to treatment I had a fantastic experience.Amazing... atmosphere, perfect for nervous patients like myself!

Taking time to explain everything and what to expect, I never felt pressured or rushed it was exactly what I needed to gain some confidence.

This practice is by far the very best I have been to - ever! ALL the staff are amazing, from the... warmest of welcomes on reception, to the most fantastic and 'state of the art' dental treatment by an experienced, professional and extremely caring dental team. The premises are inviting, relaxing, and absolutely spotless. I've instantly gone from a terrified patient to feeling reassured and happy with my treatment plan - in a very short period of time. I just wish we had found them sooner, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them (in fact I do so at every opportunity!) Never before has a dentist extracted my teeth without sedation, but Dr Johan did so with the very minimum of discomfort. I have now regained my smile, and could not be happier - thank you!read more

We lived in Canada for 20 years and when we returned to the UK eight years ago we struggled to find... a hygienist as thorough as our Canadian hygienist. Then we found Ramsbottom Dental Clinic and Kelly the hygienist. She is thorough but gentle and a lovely friendly person. The new premises are lovely with a large airy and bright waiting area. The receptionists are great and always make you feel welcome. I thoroughly recommend this dental practice.Lesley Welbourneread more
