There are many factors can accelerate the ageing process such as smoking, alcohol, sun and pollution. Dermal fillers are a safe & quick solution to restore a subtle, youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid which is naturally found in our body and gives our skin elasticity and suppleness. The amount of Hyaluronic Acid decreases as we age or regularly exposed to other factors and can cause our skin to wrinkle, look dull and tired. Dermal fillers can help re-hydrate the skin, smooth out deep wrinkles and plump out hollow or sagging areas.
At ConfiDental Clinic Purley, our dermal fillers are carried out by Dr Patel who is highly trained and experienced in facial aesthetics. When treating patients with dermal fillers, Dr Patel concentrates on replacing lost volume and not adding volume where it never was or shouldn’t be, therefore creating a natural, rejuvenated appearance.
Dermal fillers can be used on their own or in conjunction with Botox ® to smooth:-
- Nose to mouth lines
- Deep frown lines
- Crows Feet
- Smokers lines around the lips
- Marionette lines
- Loss of volume in the face or lips
- Plump or add definition to lips
Any adults can have dermal fillers except pregnant or breast feeding women. Although treatment is not painful, it can be uncomfortable depending on the areas that are being treated. A topical anaesthetic can be applied where necessary to prevent discomfort. The procedure takes around 30 minutes and the visible results are instant. Though minimal swelling and bruising can sometimes present after treatment, these effects disperse within a couple of days. Treatment can last between 12 to 18 months. As the Hyaluronic Acid breaks down naturally in the body there are no long term effects with dermal fillers.
