Guide to Dermal Fillers: Infographic
Dermal Fillers are injections of material that are naturally found in the body to plump, firm and fill in existing lines, wrinkles, deep creases and areas which have lost volume over time.
Dermal fillers work by attracting water to deep layers of the skin. And restore the natural support structures of the skin damaged by aging.
The most popular areas of treatment include the lips and crows feet but dermal fillers can be used on a number of different areas including;
- Deep frown lines, glabellar lines, (between eyebrows), tear troughs, and brow definition.
- Nasal bridge and nasolabial folds.
- Cheek augmentation and volumising.
- Lip enhancement, lip lines and lip symmetry.
- Acne scars.
- Other skin imperfections and skin rejuvenation.
How long does treatment take?
The length of treatment depends on the size of the area being treated but it is usually a quick procedure with minimal discomfort even without anaesthesia. You will be able to return to work and normal activities shortly after treatment.
When will I see results?
Results are immediate but can take 2 to 4 weeks to fully develop. The effects generally last from 6 to 12 months (depending on location of treatment, type of filler used and individual metabolism).
The filler is gradually and naturally degraded over time by the body.
Dermal Fillers vs Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections use a muscle relaxant to reduce muscle movement; their purpose is to prevent wrinkles from developing or worsening.
Dermal Fillers are used to fill in already existing wrinkles and creases and to restore volume to areas it has been lost.
