Dermal Fillers – Everything You Need To Know
Posted on 27th January 2022 at 10:08
It is an inevitability that the ravages of time will affect our appearance. Unfortunately, this occurs most noticeably in that most public of features – Our faces.
Lines and wrinkles may seem like something that we can’t avoid. Sun damage, ageing, gravity, even smiling all have a massive effect on our appearance.
However, there is help at hand, and better yet, it is a non-surgical option that is so non-invasive it can easily be administered during a lunch break and still allow the patient to return to work, none the worse for wear.
Dermal fillers are a long-lasting, affordable, and effective method of easing the signs of ageing, plump out hollow areas, and soften & lift skin.
This simple yet effective treatment can provide a long-lasting easing of the signs of ageing and does so using substances that occur naturally within the body.
This guide describes the treatment and lists a few of the many benefits that this cosmetic treatment offers.
What is Dermal Fillers Treatment?
Dermal Filling is a cosmetic procedure that works by injecting a natural substance into the area to be treated. The substance in question is called hyaluronic acid; this is a natural product that is found within the body.
Because it is natural to us, our bodies can easily accept it, and over time it is broken down and flushed from our systems through natural processes.
The process works to ease the signs of ageing by increasing the skin's natural supply of hyaluronic acid. This boost provides several beneficial anti-ageing effects, including:
Adding volume to the skin
Reducing the appearance of wrinkles
Giving skin a naturally softer look
The acid comes in the form of a soft and injectable gel, which allows for the Dermal Fillers treatment to be precisely targeted to where it is needed.
How long do the effects of the treatment last?
The effects of Dermal Filling last longer than similar cosmetic procedures such as Botox and normally will last for somewhere between 6 months to a year. However, the actual longevity of the effects varies from patient to patient, depending on various factors.
Factors that can affect the longevity of the treatment include:
At Cryosculpt, we offer a free consultation for clients, and this is discussed more fully at this stage.
Is Dermal Filling painful?
At worst, the treatment can be described as causing a little discomfort. The skill of the practitioner is crucial in minimising this. It is therefore essential that you select a reputable company to perform the treatment.
Here at Cryosculpt, our experts are all highly trained and fully qualified to ensure that any discomfort is minimal and short-lasting.
Is Dermal Filling the same as anti-wrinkle injections?
Although they both use injections to ease the signs of ageing, the way they work to achieve the results is quite different. Anti-wrinkle injections work by paralysing the muscles in the treated area, this prevents the wrinkles that appear as a result of frowning, squinting, or smiling.
Dermal Fillers work quite differently. As the name suggests, this process works by filling or plumping out the treated area and adding volume to the cheeks, lips, or around the mouth area.
Because of the way it works, Dermal Filling can also be used to smooth and give a youthful appearance to other parts of the body, including hands, neck, and chest.
What are the side effects of Dermal Fillers?
For the vast majority of patients, the side effects will be restricted to some slight swelling and perhaps a little bruising or redness around the treatment area. There is also usually a little tenderness around the area.
These are very slight, and in most instances, any side effects will have faded after a few days without any need for treatment.
The Benefits of Dermal Fillers
When it comes to cosmetic procedures, few options on the market offer the same range of benefits as dermal fillers do.
Here are just a few of the benefits:
1. Non-surgical with no downtime
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical procedure that carry none of the risks inherent with cosmetic surgery. It is quite possible to have a treatment during a lunch break and still be back at the deks in the afternoon.
Compared to surgical options, this is an affordable method of cosmetic treatment. For instance, at Cryosculpt, we have treatments that start at under €200.
The results of Dermal Fillers can last for up to a year, and in some cases, even longer. It should be noted, though, that the longevity of the treatment varies from patient to patient.
4. It is reversible
If for any reason, the treatment is not to a patient’s liking or complications arise, then the treatment can be easily reversed. The reversal uses a prescription product called Hyalase to completely and quickly dissolve the hyaluronic acid.
However, it should be pointed out that special and extensive training is required for this treatment.
At Cryosculpt, we take great pride in the fact that we have rarely been called on to take such action and when we have done, so it is usually to reverse the results of unsatisfactory procedures that have been carried out elsewhere.
5. Instant results
The results of the treatment are almost immediately apparent, although because of the time taken for the injection to integrate fully into the tissues, the full benefits can take from a few days up to about two weeks to become apparent.
Dermal fillers are becoming an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment, and it isn’t difficult to see why. Quick and long-lasting results, with no downtime, make this the perfect treatment to fit into today’s modern and hectic lifestyle.
Safe and virtually painless, dermal fillers can ease the effects of ageing and give a more youthful appearance without breaking the bank to do so.
At Cryosculpt, our highly trained staff can assure you receive the best possible outcome with an absolute minimum of discomfort. Why not contact us today and book a free consultation to find out how we can help reverse the signs of ageing.
