What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances made of hyaluronic acid (a natural substance created by your body), used to plump up and add volume to areas of the face that have lost elasticity and smoothness due to aging or other factors. They can fill in wrinkles, lines, and hollow areas, providing a more youthful appearance.
How do Dermal Fillers work?
Dermal fillers work by injecting a gel-like substance, often hyaluronic acid, beneath the skin's surface to add volume and smooth wrinkles. This plumping effect helps reduce the appearance of lines and restores lost facial volume. Some fillers also stimulate collagen production for longer-lasting results. The procedure is quick, with immediate visible improvements, and results typically last for several months.
Are Dermal Filler injections painful?
The level of discomfort varies from person to person, but most clients report very little discomfort, if any at all. Most dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Additionally, practitioners may use numbing creams or ice packs to further alleviate any discomfort.
How long do Dermal Fillers last?
The duration of dermal filler results varies depending on the type of filler used and the area treated. On average, results can last from six months to two years. Follow-up treatments are usually required to maintain the effects.
What areas can be treated with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are commonly used to treat lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, temples, under-eye hollows, chin, jawline, neck and lips. They can also be used for non-surgical nose reshaping and hand rejuvenation.
Is there any downtime after getting Dermal Fillers?
Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after getting dermal fillers. However, some temporary swelling or bruising may occur, so it's advisable to plan the procedure when you can allow for up to a week of minimal social commitments, if needed. We recommend booking your filler appointments at least 4 weeks before any major events, to ensure that bruising and swelling has went down and for optimal results.
