Dermal Fillers

Smooth away skin imperfections

A very popular way to fight wrinkles and the signs of aging, this exciting procedure can also be used to cover up the scars left by acne or to plump up thin lips.

What is the procedure?

You and I probably know this procedure best as Collagen. It’s a natural protein that we would find in our skin, our bones and our muscles. Over-time however, our Collagen cells begin to deplete in number and this can mean that skin loses its tightness and wrinkles begin to appear. The dermal filler is simply injected into lines, wrinkles or imperfections in order to plump them out and reverse the signs of ageing. After injection, the filler remains in the skin where it binds with water to produce a lift in the treated area. The procedure can often be done without the aid of anaesthetic and can be completed in around 30 minutes.

Could I be a candidate for dermal fillers?

This procedure is not permanent and thus this is not for those who are seeking a more long-term solution to their ageing skin. However, as long as you pass the initial surgical assessments, dermal fillers can offer a real solution to skin problems for a variety of people and results often last for up to 16 months. You should also enquire as to the ingredients of the specific dermal filler which would be used in your procedure; some patients may find that they are allergic to certain injections and many patients will likely want to find some of the ethical injections which are now available.

Will it really work? And will I really look any better?

Derma Fillers offer solutions, not just for wrinkles, but also to improve the volume of thin lips or return plumpness to facial contouring. Patients will find their confidence greatly improved and, as long as patients attend regular top-up appointments, the improvement should be long-lasting and completely change the way you feel about your age. These injections are living proof that age is only a state of mind and many patients have been able to wipe years off their faces. Call to book an appointment with your chosen surgeon and they will be able to talk you through whether dermal fillers are the correct procedure for you. If it turns out they aren’t, then there are many other options available to you.
