There are many different types of dermal fillers, here at facial and dental aesthetics we only use Hyaluronic Acid
HA fillers which are the most bespoke within the aesthetic industry. Since HA is a naturally occurring substance in our skin that unfortunately reduces in our bodies with the aging process, using HA dermal fillers help to hydrate and plump the skin and stimulate the collagen growth giving you a natural, rejuvenated look!
Dermal filler is a soft gel that is injected into different layers of the skin for enhancing features or adding fullness and structure to areas that have lost volume due to reduced levels in collagen and elasticity. Fillers are used to treat wrinkles and creases by lifting and volumising the skin, leaving it looking smooth, contoured, and youthful. As part of your consultation, we will assess and discuss areas of concern to you, plan the areas that would benefit from treatment, discuss type and dose of filler being recommended to achieve optimal and natual results. We will answer any of your questions and take you through the consent process by informing you about the benefits, risks or side effects and costs associated with your treatment of choice to develop an effective, tailored treatment plan for you.
Optimal results are typically achieved in one or two treatment sessions. Treatment results become apparent instantly or after a few hours post treatment. As the product settles into tissues with time, a smoother augmented result hit its peak around 4 weeks post treatment. Recovery time varies depending on the area being treated and product used, most people resume to work on the same day but as with any injectables swelling, redness or bruising could take up to 2 weeks to fully resolve.
Post treatment advice will be provided, and a review appointment can be organized if necessary. The longevity of results will often depend on the area being treated, product used and individual patient’s body metabolism of the product. On average, most patients will only need to repeat treatment once every 4 – 18 months.
