How Dermal Fillers can keep you looking younger for longer

Are you looking for an effective way to turn back the clock? Would you rather avoid Cosmetic Surgery? Booking a course of Dermal Fillers may be the answer. Here’s what you need to know about the treatment.

  • What are Dermal Fillers and what do they do?

Dermal Fillers are generally made up of hyaluronic acid and are used to effectively smooth wrinkles and restore lost volume. As we age, our skin starts to lose volume which can lead to sagging. Dermal Fillers help to replenish that volume, giving a more youthful appearance.

  • Do they work in the same way as Botox?

While Dermal Fillers are also administered via a syringe, this is where its similarities to Botox end. Botox is used to paralyse your facial muscles, preventing them from contracting as often, eliminating new wrinkles in the process. Dermal Fillers are used to correct the appearance of wrinkles that have already developed and can treat deep wrinkles that Botox cannot address.

  • Which areas are popular for Dermal Fillers?

Patients generally have Dermal Fillers around their mouth to fill laughter lines, as well as in the cheeks and the temples – areas which are prone to losing volume.

  • Is the treatment suitable for everyone?

Good candidates for Dermal Fillers are patients who have fairly deep wrinkles or who have noticeable volume loss. Initially, you’ll be administered a small dose of Dermal Fillers to give you a rejuvenated appearance.

  • When will I notice results?

Results are visible straightaway and can last from six months to two years, depending on the area being treated. If you have Dermal Fillers in your lips, results are more temporary as our lips are constantly moving. You may experience some swelling post-treatment but will be able to resume your usual activities straightaway.
