If you’re starting to feel that it’s time to restore a touch of youthful vitality to your face, you might have started to investigate your options. Obviously, you’ve already heard about Botox, which is a great way to fend off wrinkles and lines without breaking the bank. But what about an alternative procedure which lasts longer, while helping to restore volume to your face? Maybe you should consider the benefits that dermal fillers can offer.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a supplement of Hyaluronic Acid: a natural additive that the body routinely produces in order to self-regulate your skin and keep it moisturised. As we get older, our natural supplies gradually diminish – so a dermal filler procedure is a simple ‘topping up’ of a vital ingredient.
What does dermal filler treatment involve?
A dermal filler procedure consists of a consultation session, where clients express their desired results, followed by a course of injections. There may be slight bruising and swelling immediately afterwards, but they can be easily covered with make-up.
How long do dermal fillers last?
While anti-wrinkle treatments target the lines in a client’s face caused by facial expressions, the duration of results lasts from three to six months. Dermal fillers have less of a job to do and are more of a gradual treatment – meaning the results can last for up to 18 months, and in some cases, as long as two years.
