As we mature, we lose volume in our face. This then leads to wrinkles, folds, hollowness and sagging. Dermal fillers are one of the most popular and effective treatments to reverse these signs and can easily correct this loss of volume and offer a much more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are injectable gels, which help to restore facial contours that have been lost over the years.
The most common dermal fillers used for cosmetic procedures are those based with Hyaluronic Acids (HA). HA is normally found within the human skin, which helps with skin hydration.
Generally, there is minimal downtime with dermal fillers and most people return to their normal activities immediately.
Results are usually visible immediately after the treatment, however they will improve over the next 1 – 2 weeks.
Most HA fillers last between 6 to 18 months, whilst synthetic fillers last between 1 to 4 years. People who smoke or are engaged in vigorous physical exercise programs usually enjoy a shorter period of time.
