Everything you need to know about Dermal Fillers

Everything you need to know about Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are a great way to turn back time and restore lost volume in the face, as well as filling lines, furrows and anything ageing!

At our multi-award winning clinic here in Clitheroe, Lancashire, we are often being asked many questions about dermal fillers and how they work. Lots of people get confused between dermal fillers and prescription wrinkle-smoothing injections and we like to ensure that all our patients understand what a dermal filler is, as opposed to an injectable ‘toxin’ which temporarily relaxes the muscles which create laughter and expression lines. Dermal fillers act in a completely different way and therefore need to be injected and treated differently.

Below is a list of everything you need to know about dermal fillers (and maybe more), so you can make an informed choice on whether this treatment is for you.

What is a dermal filler? How fillers work

Dermal fillers usually contain a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA).

This is a naturally occurring substance found in the eyes, connective tissues and of course the skin. It depletes over time, which can make the skin suffer by means of dehydration, a crêpey appearance with fine lines and wrinkles.

HA holds up to 1000 times its own weight in water and is, therefore, a superb hydrator for the skin.

Along with the viscous gel in which the HA is contained, dermal fillers plump, fill and smooth the skin like no other injectable treatment.

For your safety: ONLY visit a trained medical professional

Only a medical professional is most competent to inject dermal fillers and this treatment should only be administered in a medical environment. Don’t be tempted to go to a beauty salon, nail bar or sports centre for this kind of treatment unless the practitioner is a medically-qualified professional.

You should be requested to attend a no-obligation consultation before any treatment can commence, to discuss the procedure, assess your individual concern as well as check your medical history and general health.

CareForSkin have recently been commended for Best Clinic North at the Aesthetics Awards and amassed further accolades at the Ribble Valley Business Awards. Therefore, you can be sure you are in the very best of hands for your dermal filler treatment.

Instant results…

HA dermal fillers give both immediate and accumulative results. As they are usually contained in a viscous gel which is placed beneath the tissues of the skin, they physically lift up these tissues. Over time, the HA improves skin quality and hydration, softening the features and giving the skin a more plump, youthful appearance.

HA dermal fillers can last from 6 to 12 months and in some cases, longer. It all depends on the treatment area and your own reaction to the product. If you’re a heavy gym goer, a smoker or sun-worshipper, expect to be returning for treatment sooner than someone who does not partake in these lifestyle choices.

…Natural results

When injected by a medically-trained and highly-skilled professional such as Dr Sobia, the results you will obtain from dermal fillers will be both natural and subtle. Dr Sobia will artistically observe your facial anatomy and only inject the amount needed in a specific area to beautifully enhance not only that feature, but complement your entire face.

If you are thinking of having dermal fillers and we haven’t answered a particular question, please contact us to have an initial conversation with our friendly clinic team or to book a consultation with Dr Sobia.
