Dermal Fillers: Everywhere They Can Treat And How?
Dermal Fillers are one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world today. Thanks to the transparency of celebrities admitting to getting regular rounds of fillers, the taboo is lifting for this non-surgical treatment. Perhaps you are considering a Dermal Filler yourself but are unsure whether it is the right fit for you? This blog aims to guide you through where Dermal Fillers can be administered and what they can achieve, helping you understand why they’ve become so popular. In a recent poll interviewing 51,000 candidates, over 59% of respondents viewed filler treatments comparable to getting a haircut.
First things first, what are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are a non-surgical aesthetic procedure designed for softening fine lines and wrinkles as well as adding volume to contour areas or lifting sagging skin. As we age, our bodies start producing less collagen – around the age of 20, our collagen levels decrease by approximately 1% annually. Collagen is the protein responsible for giving us younger, tighter and plump skin. Once our collagen production reduces, our skin sags downwards and inwards as we lose volume in the face. However, Dermal Fillers are not just suitable for older clients looking to restore their youthful appearance; they have become increasingly popular with younger age groups looking to contour and build the face in areas such as the lips and cheekbones.
Dermal Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, naturally found in the body and already in the skin and cartilage. Hyaluronic acid attracts water and therefore hydrates and plumps the skin. The gel itself adds volume to the skin whilst the hyaluronic acid keeps the skin hydrated. Fillers made up of hyaluronic acid tend to last 6-12 months.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
It is due to Dermal Fillers being a safe, professionally-administered, non-surgical alternative treatment that they are so popular. To be clear, Dermal Fillers are safe when carried out by medical professionals. The FDA has approved the use of Dermal Fillers on most facial areas, as it has been recognised for improving the augmenting volume and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
In addition, after Dermal Filler procedures, allergic reactions and infections are unheard of and extremely rare. So as long as you choose the correct establishment with the best-qualified practitioners, you can minimise the risk.
At Aesthetics of Liverpool, we pride ourselves on the exceptional standard of our aesthetic and dermatological treatments. Our qualified clinicians ensure every treatment is suitable for each individual client by carrying out an initial consultation. This appointment is a suitable opportunity to discuss your desired results and assess your health and skin. Then, together with a professional’s advice, they will advise on the best course of action.
What’s more, if you wish to undo your ‘filled’ look for medical reasons, the Dermal Fillers treatment can be reversed. Recently, Molly-Mae Hague decided to undo her filler and return to her original look. What we recommend instead is undergoing professionally-administered fillers that are applied minimally to enhance your natural appearance. An expert’s opinion can help ensure your fillers work with your natural features, so there will be no need to reverse them at a later date.
What areas can dermal fillers treat?
Cheek fillers are ideal for lifting and sculpting your cheekbones by adding volume to this area. In addition, you can eliminate signs of ageing by lifting and volumising hollow cheekbones created from sagging skin. But, it is also possible to alter your facial shape, achieving stronger contours and angles.
Lip fillers restore and add volume, helping many achieve the next ‘IT’ trending lip look. However, Dermal Filler can also be used to achieve definition too. For example, with the help of filler, you can create a stronger, more defined cupid’s bow.
A hollowing of the temples is quite common as we age. Strengthening the dermis with Dermal Filler can help recreate a plump surface, helping to reduce fine lines and creating a younger appearance.
The use of Dermal Fillers around the nose can help to reverse fine lines and wrinkles in this facial region.
By sculpting the lower face and neck with Dermal Filler, you can create a more defined jawline, reducing any appearance of sagging skin. If you suffer from the genetic condition of a receding or weak jawline, Dermal Fillers are also an effective treatment option.
Dermal FillerFiller is not all about sculpting and is a great way to fill out fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Additionally, the filler helps strengthen the skin’s structure, providing more integrity and resilience.
As you can see, fillers are entirely safe and ideal for those with a few insecurities they would like to iron out. Thankfully, fillers are widely accepted as the norm today due to their popularity.
