We all know that fighting the signs of ageing can be a tricky, time consuming process that can not only leave you spending ridiculous sums of money on treatments that don’t work, but also leave you feeling powerless to defend your skin. Now that you’ve tried the rest maybe it’s time to try the best. Dermal filler treatment at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic could be the solution to lines and wrinkles you’ve been looking for.
Far from a new treatment in the world of non-surgical anti-ageing treatments, dermal fillers have stayed a firm staple of most cosmetic clinics for good reason. Fillers are a type of non-surgical cosmetic injections that improve the volume within the skin they are injected into. Although the main purpose of dermal fillers is as an anti-ageing cosmetic tool, they are also an extremely flexible cosmetic injection and can be used for a number of different purposes in addition to their anti-ageing properties. Other uses for dermal fillers include nose reshaping and even lip augmentation. Which is suitable for your concerns is determined by the team upon consultation, but generally, dermal fillers are a great anti-ageing injectable for most as they are able to not only restore the volume to the skin many of us lose as we age, but also fill in the lines and wrinkles.
The most common question we get asked is ‘why choose dermal fillers over other anti-ageing procedures?’ Firstly, dermal fillers make a great alternative to their surgical counterparts. The great thing about dermal fillers is that they not only provide patients with results that can often mimic those of a surgical procedure, but they also give patients some level of flexibility. Dermal fillers tend to last 6-9 months, so patients have the flexibility to carry on or stop top-up treatments as they please. Something you certainly can’t say for surgery! This is a great plus point as many of us find our priorities change as we get older. Secondly, dermal fillers come with much less chance of any unwanted side effects than many other anti-ageing treatments, which is always a positive as it means patients can get great results without additional risks.
As revealed previously, dermal fillers are a versatile cosmetic injectable and can therefore be used in a number of different ways to create different results – in addition to being a great anti-ageing treatment. Dermal fillers can be used within other cosmetic treatments such as non-surgical lip enhancement where they are used as a shaping tool, and also within non-surgical nose reshaping, where dermal fillers are used to contour the area.
Although dermal fillers do come with a wealth of positives and uses that doesn’t mean they are entirely risk free. Like all cosmetic treatment, dermal filler comes with some potential risks that patients should be made aware of and factor into their decision process when considering undergoing treatment. Risks involved with dermal filler treatment include potential bruising, swelling and bleeding at the site of injection, possible damage to the facial muscles and nerves and the chance of contracting infection. Although it’s worth pointing out these are all very rare.
