Dermal Fillers

If you are looking to enhance certain features of your face like your lips, cheeks or chin, then you may have heard about dermal fillers. This popular treatment requires a lot of precision from a skilled practitioner.

What is dermal filler?

Used for facial aesthetic treatments, dermal fillers are an effective solution to provide facial volume and enhance certain features. Administered through an injection, the non-toxic serum is mostly made up from hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers work to enhance specific areas of the face. Not only do they help to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, but they also contour and create volume in a natural way. Patients who are looking to get dermal fillers will often say that their skin feels revitalised as a result of the treatment.

There are several reasons why someone might require dermal fillers. They can be used in a variety of ways, from enhancing lips to lifting eyebrows. And whilst dermal fillers might seem like a widely used, common and mainstream treatment, they actually require delicate application from a very skilled practitioner.

Our doctors are extremely skilled at this art form and have undergone rigorous training to ensure that they are able to meet your specific needs and goals, guaranteeing a balanced, natural and harmonious look.

How long does dermal filler last?

It is important to note that dermal fillers are not permanent. In fact, once injected, they usually last anywhere between 6 to 18 months. How long the fillers last will usually be determined by the type of filler that has been used for the treatment, and the area of your face in which it has been applied.

Another feature of dermal filler application that helps to put some people’s minds at ease is the fact that dermal fillers can be proactively dissolved safely. So, if you no longer wish to have them, you can get rid of them, and you don’t have to be stuck with them for the full length of time.

Dermal filler areas

There are several areas where a patient can get dermal fillers. Some patients may decide to get filler in more than one area of the skin, and this is possible. In the past, our doctors have helped people to use this procedure in the following areas (this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Cheek filler
  • Chin enhancement
  • Earlobe enhancement
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Gummy smile
  • Lips contouring/enhancement
  • Marionette lines
  • Naso-labial folds
  • Panda eyes (tear trough)
  • Redefinition of the forehead
  • Redefinition of the temples
  • Rhino filler
  • V-shape definition (jaw & chin filler)
  • Zigomatic (cheek bone) reconstruction & lift

Lip fillers

Lip fillers have proven hugely popular in the dermal filler world. In fact, they are one of the most sought after aesthetic medicine treatments in the UK.

Fillers can help to contour your lips and enhance their volume. The treatment itself is not painful and can be dissolved if you change your mind later – the treatment is not permanent. How much filler you inject into your lips will depend on the look that you are going for. Your practitioner will always suggest a safe and appropriate amount to help you achieve the look that you want.

Cheek fillers

Cheek fillers raise the volume of the area above and around your cheekbones. Not only can they help to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, but they can also create the illusion of a more defined bone structure. The procedure itself does not take a long time, and you will be able to see results immediately. Like all fillers, the results are not permanent. However, cheek fillers can last for a matter of months or even years. To create your desired look, cheek fillers can be modified, and patients can add more filler into the treated area.

Facial fillers

Facial fillers are typically used as an anti-wrinkle treatment to reduce the appearance of aging and help revitalise the skin. The results of facial fillers can last for a matter of months or up to one year. Like most dermal fillers, patients may experience bruising and swelling for the first week after treatment. It is important to note that this is normal, and these symptoms will gradually diffuse over time. Patients can receive a top-up of their facial fillers to help them maintain their desired look.

Chin fillers

Dermal filler can help an individual reshape and contour their chin. Not only can it help to create a more balanced profile, but it can also lengthen a patient’s face. Like most dermal fillers, the treatment is quick, and a top-up can be required if necessary to help you achieve the desired look you are going for. Chin filler has been proven to transform the face of both men and women, and it is a far more cost-effective procedure than getting a surgical chin implant.

Rhino fillers

Our London based team of aesthetics doctors are experts at offering rhino filler procedures. A technique that is renowned for being hard to implement. However, our doctors have garnered a strong reputation for being experts in this field.

Quality and safety is at the heart of what we do. For this reason, we select only top brands for our hyaluronic acid and ensure that only the newest and safest products are used.

Dermal fillers before and after

Dermal fillers dominate the aesthetic medicine market as they are a very effective, non-surgical treatment that provides a natural and balanced look. Although the treatment is renowned for providing natural-looking results, that does not take away from the fact that fillers can completely transform an individual’s face to help them feel good in their own skin. You won’t have to travel far online to find some incredible before and after pictures of the treatment.

Dermal filler side effects

If you decide to go ahead with dermal filler treatment, then there are some things you should expect. Immediately after the treatment, many patients can experience a slight redness and swelling to the skin. The treated area may feel tender and, at times, can be quite itchy.

It is important to note that these are normal side effects for someone to experience. Typically, these will wear off gradually over a two-week period.

Dermal fillers reviews

For many patients, dermal fillers have helped them overcome lifelong insecurities. Whether it has helped someone to cover up a gummy smile or helped to redefine their jaw/chin, this treatment has proven successful over the years. It has now become a mainstream treatment in society. Generally, reviews of dermal fillers claim that the pain of the treatment is minimal, and the results last for a few months until a top-up is needed.
