If you are considering dermal fillers, this article will answers some of your Frequently Asked Questions.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injections of a specialist gel that are used to fill out wrinkles and creases in the skin. They can also be used to increase the volume and definition of the lips and cheeks and are effective in reshaping the nose (without the need for surgery).
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body, which when injected helps to hydrate and plump the skin, smoothing deep set lines and wrinkles. They can provide a to lift mature skin which has lost it’s natural elasticity and collagen.
Does a Dermal Filler Treatment Hurt?
A surface anaesthetic cream will be applied to numb the area before treatment, so although you will experience minor discomfort during the injection, it’s relatively painless.
How Long Will the Effect of my Dermal Filler Treatment Last?
Dermal fillers gradually biodegrade. The time this takes will depend on how your body reacts to the hyaluronic acid used in the filler, and which area has been treated, but as a guide, usually the effect last between 6 and 18 months in the cheeks and face. Lip fillers usually last between 4-6 months.
What are Dermal Fillers using MD Codes?
MD Codes are a series of custom facial injection points that, when targeted with dermal fillers, provide the best possible results. Clients who may have experienced sagging and drooping with dermal fillers injected elsewhere can be assured that they will get the best results with Dr Chris at Sparx. The use of MD Codes has addressed this issue by identifying precise sites in the face where the use of dermal fillers will create natural looking lift and rejuvenation.
In fact, using MD Codes allows us to create bespoke treatments, which take into account your facial proportions and anatomy.
What types of Dermal Fillers do you use at Sparx?
Among our most popular dermal fillers are:
Juvéderm Volite which adds volume to lined skin while also improving the quality of your skin, giving your complexion a natural and hydrated, healthy glow.
TEOSYAL Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA) which gives a natural result, making it perfect for smoothing wrinkles on the forehead, neck and around the eyes.
Is there a Difference between Botox Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers?
Yes, these are two completely different procedures. Botox stops the small muscles in your face from making the movements that cause wrinkles. Dermal fillers plump from below the wrinkle to make your skin smoother. Depending on your needs, however, we may suggest using a combination of both techniques to achieve the best results. You can find out more about Botox here. The image below shows the areas that can be treated with each procedure.
