Dermal Filler FAQ's:

What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a clear synthetic gel whose primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid. This naturally occurring sugar helps restore lost volume and lift the skin to smooth and soften the appearance of facial lines. Hyaluronic acid is a natural occuring product of the skin and we are born with it already in our skin and joints. There are different trade names for Dermal Fillers on the market including, Juvederm, Restylane, Soft Line, Teosyal and Perlane but they are all essentially hyaluronic acid.

How do Dermal Fillers work?
The hyaluronic acid in the Dermal Fillers attracts water molecules which help to hydrate the skin as well as restoring fullness resulting in a more refreshed, youthful appearance.

Which areas are most commonly treated with Dermal Fillers?
The most common areas treated with Dermal Fillers are for the lines extending from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds), lines extending from the lips (smokers lines), lines on the cheeks, and lines around the mouth (Marionettes). Dermal Fillers are also used for augmentation of the lips, cheeks and jowls.

How long does a Dermal Filler treatment take?
Depending on the areas to be treated with the Dermal Fillers or the amount of product required, the treatment session usually takes around 30-40 minutes.

What happens during a Dermal Filler treatment?
Topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area to be treated before the Dermal Fillers are injected into the skin beneath the wrinkle using a very fine disposable needle.
The Dermal Filler is then massaged into the lines to ensure that the product is even and smooth across the line being treated.

How long do Dermal Fillers last for?
This again, depends on the area that is treated. Dermal Fillers injected into the lips will usually last between 6-9 months, and nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds) would be expected to last 12-15 months.
The Dermal Filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body. If no further top up treatments are given then the wrinkles and lines will return to their previous appearance but will be no worse than before treatment.

When will I notice the effects with a Dermal Filler Treatment?
The effects will be visible immediately after the treatment, however results will be at their best 48 hours after treatment provided good after care has been followed.

Are Dermal Fillers safe?
Dermal fillers are very safe. They have been widely used for many years with over 10 million treatments carried out worldwide. They are a temporary Dermal Filler, and are therefore a far safer treatment than Permanent Fillers.

Are there any side effects with Dermal Fillers?
There is a small possibility of allergic reaction. There is usually a localised reaction at the injection sites resulting in redness and swelling lasting around 24-48 hours.
Bruising is also a common side effect which can last up to a week. If you are concerned about side effects of Dermal Fillers, you can discuss this in more detail with the doctor at your free consultation.
