Dermal fillers are substances that are injected into the skin layers, with the intention of plumping, sculpting and contouring the face. There are currently several different types of dermal fillers available. Collagen fillers are one of the most popular types of dermal filler injections and are used to promote the production of collagen in order to enhance the skins elasticity. All dermal fillers vary in thickness. The thicker dermal fillers are, the deeper they can be injected into the skin in order to enhance and rejuvenate it. In this article we will explain how dermal fillers can be used to create a more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are a safe and effective treatment that can be used to smoothen out wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin. They are often injected in areas below the brow and in line with the eye, where wrinkles known as ‘crows’ feet’ can occur. The great thing about dermal fillers is that they provide instant results.
Reducing deep lines
As you get older, you may notice that deep lines start to appear between your eyebrows, around your mouth and across your forehead. If you find your deep lines too unsightly, you may want to consider having dermal fillers injected into the affected areas. Dermal fillers will plump and smooth out the skin, reducing the appearance of the deep lines.
Many people also find that their lips start to thin as they get older. Dermal fillers can be used to contour the top and bottom of the lips, helping to give them more shape. They can also be used to plump and enhance the lips, making them look fuller and more prominent on the face.
Dermal fillers can also be used to reduce the appearance of scarring on the face, caused by acne. Those suffering from bouts of severe acne, may find that their scars cause pits in their skin. The look of acne pits and scars can be improved significantly with the use of dermal filler injections.
Permanent vs. non-permanent
Although there are many different types of dermal fillers, they can either be put into the permanent or non-permanent category. As the name suggests, permanent fillers have a long lasting effect, whereas non-permanent fillers have a shorter effect and usually need re-injecting every twelve to eighteen months. In the UK non-permanent dermal fillers dominate the market share and are thought to be safer to use.
Choosing a practitioner
If you are considering having dermal filler injections, to give your face a more youthful appearance, then you need to make sure that you book your appointment with a reputable skin clinic. Dermal filler injections should always be carried out by experienced practitioners. When researching different cosmetic clinics, find out what dermal fillers they use and make sure they have been approved. All reputable clinics will require you to undergo a consultation before carrying out any treatments.
The cost of your treatment will vary from clinic to clinic. You will find that some dermal filler injections are more costly than others and that some prices will increase depending on the amount of injections you require. You should expect to pay in the region of £150 to £750. Always carry out the appropriate research on cosmetic clinics by reading customer testimonials and reviews.
If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate your skin and give it a more youthful look, then having dermal filler injections may be the ideal treatment for you. The great thing about dermal filler injections is that they offer individuals a simple, quick and painless anti-ageing solution, preventing them from having to go under the knife.
