Dermal fillers are popular treatments for wrinkles and facial lines. A dermal filler procedure helps to 'fill out' and smooth away troublesome:
Nose to Mouth Grooves
Dermal fillers are also effective for increasing fullness to narrow lips, enhancing sunken cheeks and can even be used to contour the bridge of the nose.
PRIOR TO A DERMAL FILLERS TREATMENT
Prior to any dermal filler treatment, a mild anaesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area for your comfort. The dermal filler is then injected into the skin beneath the wrinkle with a very fine needle. Your Nurse therapist may suggest that you have a small injection to numb the area prior to the filler injections.
FOLLOWING A DERMAL FILLERS TREATMENT
A dermal fillers treatment can be very quick and effective and have a minimal impact on your time. It takes 20-40 minutes depending on the number of lines and wrinkles treated. Make-up can be applied immediately after a dermal filler treatment and you can go straight back to your daily routine. It is common to have some redness and swelling following the treatment, although this usually resolves after a few hours and the results can be seen instantly.
HOW LONG WILL A DERMAL FILLERS TREATMENT LAST?
You will probably not need to have another treatment for around 4 - 6 months. Your fully qualified Cosmetic Nurse Counsellor will advise you to return to the clinic after a couple of weeks to see how you are getting on and whether you need to have some more filler injected to achieve the optimum result.
A great advantage of dermal filler treatments is that they are long-lasting, but not permanent, which gives you the option to reassess your needs, once the initial effects have worn off.
