Injectable fillers are one of the most popular facial rejuvenation techniques. As we age, the underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and firm begin to break down due to the effects of gravity, sun exposure, diet, genetic factors, and years of facial muscle movement. Over time, these contribute to the development of unwanted lines, wrinkles, and folds in the face.
How It Works
Over time, the network of collagen, hyaluronic acid molecules and fat cells that create volume are depleted. Together, breakdown and depletion of these molecules results in wrinkles and other changes to the skin. By replacing the hyaluronic acid that has depleted over time, you can restore natural looking volume, eradicating fine lines and wrinkles.
You will need a consultation first so that the doctor can tailor the treatment for your needs. After the necessary consent forms are signed some photographs may be taken to show you at the review appointment of the changes that have occurred. The consultation will take approx 30mins and is free of charge.
The session to place the filler will probably last between 30-40minutes and then a review appointment will be arranged for 2 weeks after the fillers have been placed to check the results and advise any top-ups or tweaks necessary. The results are visible instantly but they continue to improve over the following few weeks.
Sometimes a combination of fillers and botox is required to give the overall best result. This can be discussed at the consultation.
How Long Do They Last?
They will normally last between 9-12months but this can be affected by lifestyle aswell.
What happens when they wear off?
You will not suddenly wake up one day and they will be gone. The results will fade slowly over the 9-12months and once the filler has worn off you will not have any deeper grooves/folds than you would have had prior so effectively things just go back to the way they were before having the fillers.
Do they hurt?
Most people may experience some slight discomfort but numbing gel can be applied to the areas to be filled so that you do not feel anything.
