Dermal Fillers 101

As beauty treatments and aesthetic medicine become more and more popular, more and more confusing terms are thrown at you. Many of the most popular cosmetic treatments include dermal filler injections. However, you may be wondering exactly what are dermal fillers? Today, we are taking you through exactly what fillers are and what they can be used to do!

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections which can be used to enhance our face’s natural beauty and restore lost volume. Our dermal filler products are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Different hyaluronic acid fillers have different thickness depending on the area being treated.

How long do the results of dermal fillers last?

The results from a treatment with fillers typically last between 4-6 months, depending on how quickly your body breaks down the hyaluronic acid. After this, the hyaluronic acid will dissolve slowly into your body easily and safely.

What areas can be treated with dermal fillers?

Fillers can be used to enhance and restore a number of areas. The most popular treatment is obviously lip enhancement. Fillers can boost lip volume and enhance the lip shape. The filler injections can also add definition to the face’s natural contours including the cheeks, jawline and chin.

Fillers can also be used as an anti-ageing treatment, restoring volume lost as the skin ages and loses collagen. This can help reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines and tear troughs.
