As much as ageing is a natural part of life, many of us would rather keep the visible signs of ageing at bay, namely by making sure our skin looks well-kept and wrinkle free. However many of us do not consider the ‘fullness’ of our skin. A lack of volume is a telltale sign of age, and can render any efforts to fight the signs of ageing irrelevant. It can be hard to retain facial fullness as we get older, but with the help of dermal fillers it can be made much easier.
Dermal filler treatment is incredibly popular, and can be used for a wealth of different purposes – including restoring lost volume to the skin. The term ‘dermal filler’ refers to a group of cosmetic injectables that plump the skin.
Dermal fillers treatment has an array of benefits, one of which is convenience. Dermal filler treatment can be performed in just 30 minutes and requires no recovery time, meaning patients can sit the treatment at a time that suits them without it particularly impacting their schedule. Dermal fillers are also popular due to their flexibility. As non-surgical injectables, patients do not have to commit to long-term use; they can choose to have top-up treatments to maintain their results, or stop treatment as they please. This renders it the perfect treatment for those looking for a solution to their ageing skin without having to make a lifelong commitment. Dermal fillers also provide excellent results, which can rival those of surgery.
Conversely, there are potential risks with dermal filler treatment. It is important that patients have a realistic view of the treatment, and are aware of any potential side-effects involved. Risks associated with dermal filler treatment include bruising, swelling and bleeding at the site of injection as well as the risk of infection and possible damage to facial muscles and nerves. These side-effects are unlikely, and can usually be avoided with proper aftercare, but should be carefully considered nonetheless.
“Dermal fillers can produce for truly astonishing results, depending on with whom you undergo treatment. It is vital that patients completely understand the treatment before making the decision to have it. This includes doing your own research, the possible side-effects of the treatment, how the treatment can affect your life and which professional is right for you.
Having a professional consultation will also help you to reach this decision. Not only will it give you the chance to ask questions, but patients can also get a better feel of how a cosmetic professional or clinic works, to ascertain whether they’re the right provider for you.”
