Dermal Fillers

Face and lip fillers (dermal fillers) are hyaluronic acid based substances. They fill lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas such as your lips or cheeks. Fillers are not permanent. How long they last depends on things like the type of filler and where it’s injected. They usually last between 6 and 18 months.

10 Amazing Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a great way to plump up your skin and get a youthful glow. But there are even more benefits that you may not know about. Here are some 10 benefits that you can experience with dermal fillers. 

1. They Increase Collagen and Elastin Production

Collagen and Elastin production naturally slows down as you start to age. One of the main ingredients in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is known to increase levels of collagen and elastin. The more hyaluronic acid you have in your body, the more your skin will look and feel younger.  For best results, you want to ensure that the dermal filler you chose has the hyaluronic acid component.

2. The Results Are Almost Immediate 

Let’s face it, we all want to see instant results when we undergo beauty treatments. If you are plumping up your lips or smoothing out fine lines, dermal fillers produce results in as little as one week.  However, they can take up to two weeks to fully settle into your skin. Most people see full results at around the two-week mark. With proper care and upkeep, your dermal fillers can also last a long time. 

3. There Are Minimal Risks Involved

Like all beauty procedures, there are some risks involved. However, dermal fillers carry minimal risks.  Immediately after the procedure, you may experience swelling, redness, as well as bruising around the site of injection. These side effects are usually mild and fade after a few days.  It is rare to experience serious complications after a dermal filler treatment. It is important that your aesthetician is well-trained and that the clinic is certified for this procedure. With an unskilled practitioner, it is possible to experience facial asymmetry as one of the potential risks. With the right clinic and aesthetician, you can alleviate this worry. 

4. They Can Be Used With Other Treatments 

One of the greatest benefits of dermal fillers is that you can pair them with other treatments. In fact, dermal fillers combined with Botox injections give the smoothest and natural-looking results for facial skin.  For deeper and more obvious fine lines, Botox are the perfect addition to your dermal fillers. These types of injections help stop your facial muscles from contracting and deepening those lines further. Deeper lines, like crow’s feet, smoker’s lines, frown lines, and forehead lines are a little more difficult to eliminate using just dermal fillers and will require a combination approach.  This can save you from invasive surgeries such as a facelift or skin grafting.  

5. They Help Boost Your Confidence 

If you are considering dermal fillers, you might be feeling self-conscious about your wrinkles. As we age, it is difficult to see the changes in our faces and bodies.  Dermal fillers can do wonders in giving your confidence a much-needed boost. Although we encourage you to enjoy beauty treatments and their benefits, it is important not to rely on them solely for happiness.  These injections can help improve your appearance and thus your confidence, but we still encourage you to age gracefully and use these as a treat. The goal is not to make you look like a different person but to enhance your natural beauty. 

6. The Results Are Long-Lasting 

The effects of dermal fillers can last from 6-18 months, depending on many factors. The type of fillers that are used, the lifestyle and care of the patient, and the area being treated, can all affect the efficacy and length of results.  For your first treatment, you may want to consider shorter-term injections, in case you aren’t happy with the results or you want to reconsider the placement of the injections.   You can opt for longer-lasting injections after your fillers have settled and you are able to appraise the results.  

7. The Effects Are Subtle 

When we say that the effects of dermal fillers are subtle, we mean that they are natural-looking. Oftentimes we hear criticisms about beauty procedures where it looks like there’s been work done.  With dermal fillers, the effects are natural. Others will likely notice your enhanced appearance, but they won’t be able to tell that you’ve had work done.   

8. They Minimise the Look of Scars 

One of the biggest benefits of dermal fillers is that they can improve and minimise the appearance of scars.  The hyaluronic acid in dermal fillers can soften scar tissue around the injection site. If you’ve suffered from acne or other conditions that left you with scarring, dermal fillers can help. However, they cannot be used for all types of scars. Be sure to speak with your practitioner before deciding on dermal fillers for your scars. 

9. They Don’t Require Recovery Time 

If you’re a regular at your favourite clinic, you can get this procedure done in under ten minutes. It is non-invasive, meaning that it doesn’t require preparation, surgery, or downtime.  That is one of the major advantages of dermal fillers. You can easily fit an appointment in, in the middle of your busy day.  Though there may be slight swelling at the site of injection, it diminishes within a few days. If it is your first time, you will want to take extra time to talk to your practitioner about your concerns and discuss any possible risks. 

10. They Feel Good on Your Skin 

The contents of dermal fillers are the same naturally occurring substances in your skin. This not only gives your skin a natural look but also a natural feel.  Once the contents are under your skin, the hyaluronic acid in the filler will feel like your very own skin.
