What can dermal fillers do for me?
Dermal fillers are great at creating volume to the cheek bone area, softening out nose to mouth lines and help define the contours of the lips giving that more youthful appearance. A small amount of treatment can have a big difference to the ageing skin, particularly if we place the product in just the right place its needed.
How long do the effects of treatments last for?
Depending on the type of treatment and factors which are specific to each individual’s lifestyle such as smoking and sun exposure, dermal fillers can last up to 6-10 months. Remember these treatments do not halt or arrest the ageing process, it is a continuous process that is occurring every day and none of the dermal fillers are permanent thus will naturally degrade with time.
What areas can be treated?
Dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of the skin around the upper chest (also known as the decolletage) and on the hands which can look and feel soft and younger. But more commonly treated areas are on the face such as the nose, lips, mouth, fine lines around the eyes (also known as, crows feet) and folds and lines on facial contours.
Is the dermal filler treatment painful?
It can be slightly painful but among the different dermal fillers available the majority contain, lidocaine a local anaesthetic which makes the treatment process more comfortable. We can also use topical anaesthetic to numb the area prior to treatment.
How long do treatments take?
Some treatments can take as little as 20 – 30 minutes but it takes longer depending on which and how many areas are being treated.
Is everyone able to have this treatment?
Both men and women are suitable for dermal filler treatment. A patient may only be unable to have treatment if they are pregnant, breast feeding and/or have certain allergies.
Are there any risks or side effects?
There are very rarely any side effects but this is specific to the patient so the practitioner will discuss any side effects or possible risks that may occur with you at the consultation.
