What are Dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are a hyaluronic acid based natural substance. A substance that is found within every person’s body. As we inevitably begin the ageing process the amount of hyaluronic acid found in the skin begins to diminish – causing skin to look tired and lose its youthful glow. Dermal filler injections reintroduce the hyaluronic acid back in to your body. Dermal filler injections can be used in a variety of areas to add volume to the skin. A popular area being the cheeks.
One of the main draws for dermal filler treatments is that they require no recovery time.
The actual procedure can be done in as little as ten minutes, depending on how many areas are to be treated, and the patient is then free to resume their daily activities and go back to work immediately. In today’s busy world, especially in the fast-paced and high profile world this is a major benefit. Dermal fillers are the very definition of a “lunchtime facelift,” and as such have been steadily rising in popularity over the years.
The potential side effects of dermal fillers when administered professionally are very minimal, just redness or swelling around the injection site. If this happens, it usually disappears within a few hours or a day, and can be covered easily with makeup. Bruising is another potential side effect, but these can generally be avoided by following your dermatologist’s instructions before coming in for your appointment.
