Everything You Need To Know About Dermal Fillers

By October 20, 2021June 16th, 2022No Comments

Everybody wants to look and feel great, but not everyone has the time or money to invest in expensive beauty treatments. If you are looking for a simple, safe, and affordable method of enhancing your looks or minimising the signs of ageing, dermal fillers may be right for you! 

In this article, we’ll show you everything you need to know about dermal fillers on how they work and what to expect to help you make an informed decision. 

 

What are dermal fillers and how do they work?

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive aesthetic injectables that use hyaluronic acid gel, to restore volume to the skin and increase elasticity in certain areas of the face, hands and body. 

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that works with existing collagen to maintain moisture, and keep skin hydrated. However, as we age, our bodies produce less collagen and when this occurs, the lips, eyes, and cheeks appear hollowed out and visible sagging or wrinkling  appears. 

 

How do they work? 

Essentially, dermal fillers either replace or supplement natural collagen.  Once injected with a cannula or needle into a specific area, they begin to work their magic by attracting water molecules to revitalise the skin for a more youthful appearance. 

 

Who can benefit from dermal fillers? 

People who benefit from dermal fillers are those who suffer from age-related volume loss, and people with facial injuries or severe acne. In addition to cheek and jawline augmentation for sculpting the face, dermal fillers can also be used for lip enhancement and scar reduction. The anti-aging treatment is also recommended for atrophic earlobes, as well as certain dermatological conditions.

Other problems that dermal filler address include:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Tear troughs, dark circles and under eye bags 
  • Prominent nasolabial folds
  • Fine lips
  • Marionette lines 
  • Crepey skin

 

What can I expect during treatment? 

The treatment takes only about fifteen minutes and is usually relatively painless. The injections feel similar to getting pricked with a very sharp needle, but not nearly as intense as facial fillers such as Botox. 

Some people report that the injections are slightly painful for up to an hour after the procedure, but this varies depending on the dermal filler used.  The filling procedure is quite popular with celebrities because there is no down time involved.

 

How long do the results last? 

You can expect to see some major changes in your appearance after the first treatment, however, more than one injection session may be required. Dermal fillers usually last around 6 to 18 months before beginning to fade.  

 

Any risks?

Dermal fillers are relatively harmless when properly administered by a medical professional. Risks include bruising, infection, allergic reactions, and the rare risk of nerve damage. If you are considering dermal filler treatments, it is important that you discuss your options with your doctor. A good plastic surgeon will be able to answer all of your questions and administer dermal fillers safely and effectively.
