What are dermal fillers?

There is not a lot of clarity out there about what exactly dermal fillers are. We know they are great for adding volume to the skin, but what are they made of? Well, most high quality fillers are now made from hylauronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance that is already produced by your body. When injected, this substance can hydrate and volumise your skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

So, how does this process work? Well, essentially fillers are simply an injection of this hylauronic acid, under the skin. Different skin types and skin problems will need to be injected at different levels, from the epidermis, all the way to the sub-dermis. Although for most fine lines and wrinkles, the acid will be injected just under the top layer, the epidermis. 

Once injected, the hylauronic acid hydrates your skin, as it holds onto a lot of moisture. And it also volumises your skin too, which can be useful for adding structure and contours to your face.  

One of the questions we are often asked about dermal fillers, is do they hurt? Well, while being injected you could experience some discomfort. That’s why we always apply an anesthetic cream to the area, before we begin. This will alleviate any pain or discomfort you might feel, during the procedure.  

This leads on to the next question, will there be pain after the procedure? Well, the simple answer is no. There will be some redness and tenderness, and maybe a small amount of swelling, typical for any skin injury. But this should clear up within a few days.  

Dermal fillers do not last forever. This is because the hylauronic acid is used by the body, so eventually, there will be non left. The length of time it takes this to happen varies for individuals, but you will usually need another treatment around the 4-6 month mark. For some people, dermal fillers can last up to a year!

Dermal fillers can be injected into the skin in a range of facial locations, including the cheeks, chin, jawline and lips. This means you can fight the signs of ageing in a range of areas, and add volume and contour too.

Professional Dermal Filler Consultation.

With a variety of fillers available on the market knowing the best dermal fillers can be over whelming to understand. That’s why having a professional consultation before your treatment will help establish which product is right for giving you the best result. Certain brands have been shown to produce fantastic results for cheek and chin augmentation whereas others have been more popular amongst clients looking for more naturally plump lips. Furthermore, other brands have been shown to produce better results to non-surgically reshape the nose.
