Growing older is a natural and inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with lines and wrinkles, especially if you feel like they’ve developed way ahead of time. If you are looking to fight the signs of ageing within your skin there are a variety of different products, treatments and procedures on the market aimed at giving you the best possible results. In fact nowadays there’s so much choice that it can be difficult to figure out which option is right for you. If you’re looking for a tired, tested and non-surgical solution to ageing skin, dermal fillers can be the perfect treatment to ease away your unwanted creases and frown lines.
So what is a dermal filler and why is it so popular? Dermal fillers are versatile non-surgical cosmetic injections that are used (mostly) as an anti-ageing treatment, however they can be used for several other purposes too. The term dermal fillers is actually a general term given to a number of cosmetic injectables that provide patients with similar results but may differ in the scientific way in which these results are created. Dermal fillers are a popular anti-ageing treatment as they successfully enhance the volume within the skin in which they are injected into, making them the perfect tool to fill in deep set lines and wrinkles. Popular areas for dermal filler treatment include around the eyes and the mouth – for example to fill in laughter lines that have formed over the years.
Dermal fillers also work wonders in conjunction with muscle relaxing injections such as Botox, as they tackle different issue that sometimes are found in ageing skin. Whilst they work very well together, they are not to be confused as the same thing. Dermal fillers plump up the skin within the line or skin fold to restore a smoother appearance, whilst muscle relaxing injections are able to temporarily immobilise the facial muscle that it is injected into, making it impossible for the muscle to crease or stretch the skin further.
The other benefit of dermal fillers is their versatility. Patients are often unaware that dermal fillers can be used in a variety of non-surgical facial contouring treatments, like nose reshaping and lip enhancement. Popular with men and women, these injectables (in the right hands!) can offer subtle results to a host of ageing and cosmetic concerns, without the need for scalpels and recovery time. It’s easy to see why they’re now one of the most sought after treatments in the country, right?
Dermal fillers are also a great option for those looking to enter the word of cosmetic anti-ageing treatment but don’t want to commit to cosmetic surgery. The results from dermal fillers last for anything from 6-18 months depending of which form of dermal filler you opt for. This makes it the perfect starter treatment for those looking to reverse the signs of ageing as it allows patients to gain visibly noticeable results without the need to commit to a ‘permanent’ cosmetic procedure. Patients can choose to carry on with treatment or stop follow up treatments as they please.
Dermal fillers are also quick and convenient. With an average procedure time of just 30 minutes and no recovery time needed, dermal filler treatment is the perfect option for the busy modern man or woman. Patients can sit the treatment in their lunch break and return to work straight away.
