Dermal fillers - What does a dermal filler do? Dr.Derme Skin and Dermal Fillers Clinic

What does a dermal filler do?

Dermal fillers add volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. Also known as facial fillers, they fill in areas of the face that have lost volume due to ageing.  Weight loss and sun damage can also cause volume loss in the face. We use dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite. Hyaluronic acid gives our skin hydration and plumpness. Calcium hydroxyapatite is found in teeth and bones. These substances are able to attract and hold water, helping to restore a youthful, hydrated appearance to the skin.

Do fillers damage your face?

Dermal fillers can safely and effectively enhance the appearance of the face. To ensure your safety please choose a qualified doctor to carry out the treatment. Our doctors are experts in the field and can give you the best possible results. 

Are dermal fillers Better than Botox?

Dermal fillers can treat a variety of concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles: they can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. They really good around the mouth and eyes.

  • Volume loss: As we age, we lose volume in our faces, which can lead to a sunken or hollow appearance. They can restore volume and fullness to the face, particularly in the cheeks and temples.

  • Sculpting and contouring: they can enhance and define refacial features, such as the nose, jawline, and lips.

Fillers are injected into the skin using a really small needle. The procedure is relatively quick, with most treatments taking less than an 30 minutes. There is usually minimal discomfort. A local anaesthetic or numbing cream applied before can reduce any little pain.

The effects of fillers are not permanent. Some dermal fillers can last for up to two years, while others may only last for a few months.

In conclusion, dermal fillers are a popular and effective treatment for adding volume, smoothing wrinkles, and enhancing facial contours. They are a great way to restore a youthful and hydrated appearance to the skin. However, choosing a qualified doctor is important to ensure the best possible results and your safety.
