Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid boosters such as Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, and Profhilo.

They contain mainly water, hyaluronic acid, lidocaine anaesthetic, and stabilising molecules such as BDDE (1,4-Butanediol Diglycidyl Ether).

Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in our body and is responsible for skin hydration and elasticity. As we age, hyaluronic acid begins to deplete, causing the skin to lose volume and appear to sag.

Dermal fillers can instantly restore volume, improve the appearance of lines, alter proportions and achieve a more youthful appearance.

FAQs

Is the procedure painful?

Most of the leading filler brands contain local anaesthetic, and in addition, your dentist will apply topical anaesthetic cream to the area prior to commencing treatment in order to achieve minimal discomfort.

Are there any side effects?

Most patients experience minimal side effects and return to normal activities immediately after treatment. Possible side effects include trauma during the procedure caused by needles and cannulas, bleeding, stinging, bruising, and swelling- particularly in the lips.

Most swelling or bruising may become more apparent over the next 24 hours but then usually settles within a few days. We recommend paracetamol, cold packs, antihistamines and arnica cream to help reduce symptoms. Most traumatic injuries heal completely on their own.

How long will the results last?

Dermal fillers will degrade over time, and the longevity does vary between products and individuals. Most will last between 6-18 months. You can then maintain the results with follow-up treatments. You can see improvement immediately after the procedure, but you should allow 2 weeks to assess the final result.

What areas can be treated using Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are used to correct or enhance facial contours such as the cheeks, jawline, nose, chin and temples. They can also define and volumise lips and soften and correct facial wrinkles or folds. They can also be used to improve the tone, texture, and hydration of the skin.

Areas include:

  • Nose-to-mouth lines (Nasolabial folds or ‘smile lines’).
  • Mouth-to-chin lines (Marionette lines).
  • Lip fillers.
