Dermal Fillers Frequently Asked Questions

Dermal fillers can be used to fill in deep lines, creases and wrinkles in the face, and add volume to lips that are wrinkled or thin. They can also be used to contour areas of the face, plumpen the cheeks, and improve scars or blemishes on the facial tissue. They are also effective for those who want to reduce signs of ageing, or treat unsightly scars or blemishes on the face, without having to undergo expensive and complicated plastic surgery.

  • They rejuvenate your facial aesthetic and you feel more confident in your skin
  • They provide a long-lasting treatment.
  • They are cheaper and much less invasive than surgery. In fact, dermal fillers are a totally non-invasive procedure.
  • There is no recovery period.

Some dermal fillers are made from a clear gel, the various types distinguished by thickness and viscosity, which determines the length of time that they last.

Dermal fillers do not require any anaesthetic as the main brands (Juvederm Ultra and Restylane) already contain an anaesthetic. The procedure is straightforward and simple with no surgical elements. Make-up can actually be applied 30 minutes after the procedure has been carried out and the effects last for up to 9 months. Optimal results will be seen if patients attend regular repeat treatments. Very small needles are used and there is very little pain associated with the injections.

Dermal fillers are injected into the tissue beneath the skin. They expand the neurofibres and tauten the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Most dermal fillers contain quantities of local anaesthetic that reduce injection pain, and it also numbs the skin where it is injected. For this reason, filling of particularly sensitive areas such as the lips can be undertaken with minimal discomfort to the patient. Sometimes, there can be momentary pain followed by redness at the injection site.

The results of a dermal fillers treatment are instant, and can last for up to nine months.

You will see the benefits of the treatment within 3 days. Most patients experience no side-effects and there is no recovery period associated with dermal fillers. Simply turn up for your appointment and resume your daily activities straight away.
