Dr Rory is proud to offer an extensive list of dermal filler treatment options at our medical clinic in Poole, UK. Dermal fillers comprise of Hyaluronic Acid which is naturally produced as a component of the skin, Dr Rory will hand select the best filler in line with the area being treated to ensure optimum results are achieved.
Dermal fillers offer more than just volume restoration and enhancement. They can also help with the correction of facial wrinkles or folds, providing a non-surgical alternative to procedures like facelifts or brow lifts. By precisely injecting fillers into targeted areas, Dr Rory can soften and correct facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the mouth) or marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin).
Furthermore, dermal fillers can improve the overall tone, texture, and hydration of the skin. They stimulate collagen production and boost skin elasticity, leading to a more youthful and radiant complexion. The hydrating properties of some fillers can also enhance the skin’s moisture levels, resulting in smoother and plumper skin.
Which areas can be treated?
Areas which can be treated include cheeks, temples, jawline, lips and chin.
Dermal fillers define, correct or enhance lips and soften and correct facial wrinkles or folds. They can be used to improve the tone, texture and hydration of the skin.
Cheeks: Dermal fillers can restore volume to the cheeks, providing a more youthful and lifted appearance. They help replenish lost volume due to aging or other factors, resulting in a natural-looking rejuvenation.
Temples: Dermal fillers can be used to address sunken or hollow temples, which can contribute to an aged or gaunt appearance. By adding volume, fillers help restore a fuller and more youthful contour to the temples.
Jawline: A well-defined jawline is a desirable facial feature. Dermal fillers can be strategically placed along the jawline to enhance its shape, improve definition, and create a more harmonious facial profile.
Lips: Dermal fillers are commonly used to augment and enhance the lips. They can add volume, improve symmetry, and define the lip borders, resulting in fuller and more sensuous lips. Fillers can also address vertical lip lines, commonly known as “smoker’s lines,” for a smoother appearance.
Chin: Dermal fillers can reshape and redefine the chin, addressing concerns such as a weak or receding chin. By adding volume or contouring the chin, fillers can help achieve better facial balance and harmony. Dermal filler for the chin is increasingly popular amongst male patients looking to enhance their facial structure.
What does the treatment involve?
Every appointment begins with a one-to-one consultation at the Poole clinic with Dr Rory to discuss your desired outcome of the treatment, what is involved and the aftercare.
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.
Downtime & Aftercare:
Treatments are relatively quick and come with minimal downtime and aftercare. All details of your treatment and aftercare will be discussed with you within your appointment.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Depending on the specific product used the aesthetic effect can last 6 – 18 months. Please ask your doctor to advise you regarding specific expected longevity for your treatment. Longevity varies between individuals due to lifestyle factors, metabolism and age. Hyaluronic acid is a non-permanent treatment which is fully biocompatible, degradable and dissolvable.
One of the greatest benefits is that fillers can be combined with a multitude of other treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections to achieve optimal results without the need for invasive surgery.
