What are Dermal Filler injections?

Our bodies with age naturally change, and these changes can include facial wrinkles. This can consist of cheekbones that are not as high as they once were in our youth.

Dermal filler injections which are soft tissue fillers aid in reducing these signs of ageing skin if you are unhappy with them.

However, these changes are entirely normal and occur when we lose some subcutaneous fat that supports our skin.

With time, the skin on the middle of our faces shifts down, too, causing our cheeks to sag. Injectable Treatment can be used to help lift and add support, and it can also help soften wrinkles.

Dermal fillers should not be confused with Botox, injectable drugs to smooth out lines and wrinkles.

Botox “freezes” muscles to reduce facial wrinkles, while dermal fillers are injectable implants that help smooth skin and wrinkles. They are injected beneath the skin using a needle.

There are four categories of fillers. Each is named for the type of material they are made with:

Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by your body and is already found in your skin and cartilage. Fillers made with hyaluronic acid last between 6-12 months.

Calcium hydroxyapatite is a mineral that is naturally found in our bones. Fillers made with this material last up to 18 months.

Poly-L-lactic acid is a biodegradable synthetic material that is used for things like medical products like dissolvable stitches. Poly-L-lactic acid fillers may last up to two years.

Polymethylmethacrylate beads are the only filler that your body cannot absorb, meaning the results are permanent. So, they are only used around the mouth.

Hyaluronic acid is a well-known ingredient in some skincare products; Hyaluronic acid is one of the most popular types of fillers.

Because it helps skin keep moisture, hyaluronic acid generally helps your face look plumper and more hydrated.

It is also used in lotions as a moisturizer, but no cream can restore lost volume. Only injectable hyaluronic acid can do that.

Juvéderm and Restylane are two famous name brand hyaluronic fillers that you may have heard of.

Why do people get dermal fillers?

Patients want to look a little better without turning to cosmetic surgery. So instead, she uses dermal fillers to add in volume and smooth out wrinkles, which her patients are generally happy with, she says.

Dermal fillers are popular due to the fact that patients see differences in their appearances before leaving the clinic. After a few days, people notice the desired changes from other non-surgical procedures, like Botox.

The dermal filler procedure should not be used to increase the size of your breasts or butt.

What precautions should I take before getting fillers?

Safety should be your top priority when considering any medical procedure as in rare cases some people can have allergic reactions.

There are risks for issues like infection, lumps, and discolouration if injections are done incorrectly.

Given that this is an essential cosmetic procedure for the client, understandably, they want to be satisfied with the results.

One way to find a good clinic is to ask friends who have used a particular clinic they would recommend.

An increasing number of people are starting to accept injectables as an option to look younger.

What should I ask during the consultation?

First, you should book a free consultation with Crawley Botox Clinic and discuss your goal and how we can help you.

Dermal fillers are a choice; however, our qualified, trained staff could recommend another treatment or a combination of treatments based on your specific skin type.

For example, we may suggest using laser therapy if you have a lot of pigmentation.

You can request before-and-after photographs of actual patients from our portfolio of clients. These clients have consented.

If you use Crawley Botox Clinic or any other clinic, you should not be afraid to ask our trained staff for their certification during the first consultation.

Our staff will discuss the realistic results and your expectations; it is your face, after all. If you do not need a particular treatment, we will communicate this to you and refuse treatment.

Dermal FillersWhat are the side effects of fillers?

Yes, non-surgical procedures have their risks and complication too. The most common side effects and complication may include bruising, pain, redness, or swelling, all of which should go away within two weeks.

Dermal Fillers (Soft Tissue Fillers) Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, lip and facial fillers, or wrinkle fillers are medical device implants.

These create a fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and back of the hands.

Treatment in any of the areas above list In rare cases, people might get raised bumps under their skin that need to be treated with injections, medications, or even surgically removed.

Although this is rare, the filler can accidentally be injected into a blood vessel and lead to blurred vision or permanent blindness.

You should seek urgent medical treatment if your skin turns blue and you are in pain.

These are two signs that filler is in your bloodstream. But, again, therefore, you want to see an experienced doctor skilled in performing the procedure.

Who should avoid dermal filler?

There is no research showing that dermal filler are safe for pregnant or breastfeeding. Therefore, you should refrain from filler treatment if you are expecting a baby or recently had a child.

You should also avoid getting Dermal filler treatment before a teeth cleaning or other dental treatment.

These dental procedures require pressure and stretching of the face tissue, and this can potentially misplace fillers.

You can ask your doctor for their opinion about when it is safe to get any future dental work during your consultation.

What is the cost of dermal filler?

If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. But, on the other hand, if you see a deal for inexpensive filler, be sceptical.

It would be best to be careful as counterfeit and diluted filler do exist, so make sure you use an established clinic.

Crawley Botox Clinic is one of the oldest clinics in Crawley. You can ask to see the box and look for a safety seal on it.

Is dermal filler permanent?

If you are not happy with the way filler looks, do not panic; you can have it adjusted in most cases.

For example, a dermatologist might inject added filler for balance or dissolve it altogether.

The advantage of hyaluronic acid fillers is that an enzyme can be injected into the area to dissolve the product.

But when expertly injected, the filler should always look natural. The changes we can make are so subtle that nobody would ever notice.

How long will Fillers last?

Since most fillers are not permanent, if you love the results following your procedure, you will have to go back to the clinic for a top-up.

After about six months, the human body naturally breaks down hyaluronic acid fillers.

So, you have to get top up once or twice a year to keep the look.

However, this is good news if you want to try fillers once or twice since the effects will fade away without any long-term risks.

What is Undereye Filler?

If you cannot seem to cover those dark circles under your eyes no matter how much eye cream, you use. Then you have a choice by considering an under-eye filler.

A loss of volume in the “tear trough” under-eye area can create a shadow, making you look tired, even when you may well be rested.

Under-eye fillers can have an amazing transformation in brightening your under-eye area and giving it a lift.

However, it is not a practical choice for everyone, so it is essential to research the treatment and speak with our staff as our consultation is free.

Under-eye filler treatment is usually done by using Juvéderm or Restylane dermal fillers.

The filler substance is placed in the under-eye region to fill out the hollow and reduce the shadowing that causes a tired appearance.

If you have darker skin underneath your eyes due to natural pigmentation or under-eye bags, a filler is unlikely to improve this problem.

Under-eye filler is helpful for individuals who show visible dark circles due to a localized hollowing or lack of volume in the area.

How Do facial fillers Work?

Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which stimulates collagen’s natural production. This creates a natural look and fullness under the eyes.

For the treatment, a numbing cream is used similar to medications to those used for “local freezing” for stitching cuts.

The area is disinfected, and a port needle is typically inserted near the cheek to use a safer cannula.

These soft-tipped insertion devices do not cut. This reduces bruising and increases safety by protecting structures within the face.

Our Cosmetic staff will inject a choice of Restylane dermal fillers into the treatment area to smooth out that hollowing. You may notice at this point that your face becomes slightly numb.

This is because lidocaine “local freezing” is contained within the Restylane filler for your comfort. This is normal and lasts about an hour.

The area under your eyes is pretty delicate, and the skin is thin. Bruising and swelling are common side effects of under-eye filler.

Some rare side effects can be easily treated, and bruising should go down within a day or so.

However, once your eye area has recovered, you will notice the immediate effects, which can last for up to 12 months.

How Much Do Under-Eye Fillers cost?

This all depends on where you go for your treatment and the experience of the cosmetic surgeon, as the cost of under-eye fillers can vary.

Higher-quality treatments conducted by reputable, established clinics are often a little more expensive.

It is well worth going to a quality clinic for a qualified professional’s first-rate dermal filler substance and treatment.

What is the cost of face and lip fillers cost?

The cost of dermal fillers can range from £200 to several hundred pounds. It all depends on things like the type of product used and the complexity of the area being treated.
