In one of the most rapidly expanding industries, it’s hard to know what to get, where to get it, how much to get and where to book. With bodged treatments, questionable qualifications and so many options, booking in for Dermal Fillers with confidence is no easy task.

Boasting a whole host of benefits, it’s no wonder Dermal Fillers are the number one cosmetic procedure. Including helping to improve the look and texture of skin, reducing the signs of aging and even helping with areas causing self-consciousness, there is no denying there are many positives.

Dermal fillers are injected just below the surface of the skin, and work by instantly replacing volume lost as a result of ageing. The primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid which is a natural component of the skin.

Treatments are relatively quick, do not require anaesthetic and come with minimal downtime and aftercare.

Where can I have Dermal Fillers?

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Tear Troughs (under eyes)
  • Smokers lines (above lip area)
  • Marionette lines

Dermal fillers are not permanent and tend to last between 8-12 months depending on individual lifestyle and factors such as sun exposure, activity level and metabolism. Since hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, filler can easily be dissolved which helps clients who feel nervous ahead of the first time getting fillers.

To get maximum lasting power from your fillers, its important to follow all the aftercare given to you following your appointment and try to stay out of the sun where possible, especially avoiding the use of sunbeds. Things like saunas and steam rooms and drinking lots of alcohol does also reduce the lasting time of your fillers but this shouldn’t stop you enjoying yourself… just be wary that you will need to be prepared to maintain your fillers as they are not permanent.

The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

One of the greatest benefits is that fillers can be combined with a whole multitude of other treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections to achieve optimal results without the need for invasive surgery. The immediate results seen with fillers can help boost confidence as naturally enhancing your overall aesthetic with small, perfectly performed tweaks helps to balance your overall symmetry and facial harmony in a subtle yet effective way. You want to still look like you at the end of the day but be the best, most confident version so that you feel your best.

Furthermore, fillers can help minimize the look of scars. This is thanks to the HA effectively being able to soften the scar tissue around the injection site. Acne scarring for example can lead to feeling self-conscious about your skin and fillers can help.

The treatment time itself is minimal, the procedure is safe, non-invasive and doesn’t require any preparation, or surgery and comes with minimal downtime. You could even fit an appointment in during your day as you don’t have to take time off work for recovery.

Prices vary from treatment to treatment and remember not all fillers are created equally. Be sure to research products used and how long your chosen practitioner has been performing treatments for. Opt for Medical professionals so you can be safe in the knowledge that they will know exactly what to do in the event that something did go wrong during your treatment. Dermal Fillers, like all aesthetic procedures are not without risks so you need to do your research and if something seems too cheap, in this industry, unfortunately this is usually a red flag.
