Dermal fillers are one of the nation’s favourite anti-ageing treatments, but what exactly are they, how do they work, and what can they treat? Today, we’ll explain answers to all these and more, so you can decide whether dermal fillers are a good idea for your skin.
Dermal fillers explained
A type of injectable aesthetic treatment, dermal fillers – also called wrinkle fillers – help to smooth out skin, boost hydrating, and even contour areas of your face. They’ve been widely used in aesthetics for decades, loved by everyone from the celebrity set to members of the public.
Areas for dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are most often used on the face. They’re especially effective at filling those deeper lines and wrinkles (ones usually caused by sun damage) and can be injected into places like the nasolabial lines (mouth to nose lines), marionette lines (which run from mouth to chin) and lines around the lips. Dermal fillers can also be used to restore volume in the cheeks with cheek fillers and under the eye with tear trough fillers, and to refine the appearance of the nose.
The science of wrinkle fillers
Wrinkle fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a hydrating substance naturally found in the body. It’s broken down over time, which is why results aren’t permanent, though you can expect them to last up to 18 months. Most of our clients in York find that they’re a cheaper, more flexible option with much less downtime than procedures like plastic surgery.
Ideal candidates for treatment
Men and women over 18 are suitable for dermal fillers in most cases. However, a consultation is always advised, as the wrinkles you’re targeting may be best treated with one of our other procedures. In your consultation, you’ll also have the chance to talk to us one-to-one and ask questions, and we can help you feel comfortable about the process, the staff and the clinic.
Reasons for treatment
There are many reasons people pursue wrinkle fillers. It might be concerns or self-consciousness; you may appear older than you are, or you might be looking into several treatments to refresh your overall appearance. Whatever it is, we’ll be sensitive to your needs and ensure you’re happy with the final results.
