Interesting facts about dermal fillers

Unless they tell you, you won’t know who has had subtle dermal filler treatment – it’s a quiet, sophisticated art! That said, it’s important to have a full conversation around treatments – examples of poor work encourage questions about treatment and that’s to be encouraged. 10 facts about dermal fillers you may not be aware of:

1. Some dermal fillers are natural, some are synthetic
2. Some trigger new collagen production
3. Fillers are typically made of a substance found in the body (hyaluronic acid)
4. There are now a number of other popular dermal filler formulations too
5. Treatment areas will change as you age
6. A key goal is to replace lost volume, not overfill your face
7. Treatment shouldn’t be painful – anaesthetic may be in the filler or used topically first
8. Depending on the product, results last from 6 to 12 months (and occasionally longer)
9. With a qualified, experienced practitioner, side effects are rare & there is no downtime as such (some redness or bruising may occur which may last 24-48 hours)
10. Results are not permanent
