Dermal fillers smooth out fine lines in your skin, rejuvenating your appearance. Made of a gel-like substance, a dermal filler replenishes lost moisture and volume in the treatment area, plumping up your features.
What causes wrinkles?
As we age, the level of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases, causing it to become thinner, drier, and less elastic. As a result, wrinkles begin to form.
Do dermal fillers involve surgery?
No, dermal fillers are 100% non-surgical. They are administered by injecting the target area with a dermal filler agent that has undergone rigorous government testing and been deemed safe for use.
Which areas of the face can dermal fillers be used on?
Dermal fillers are suitable for improving the appearance of lines and creases around the mouth and nose. They can also be used to add volume to the cheeks and lips.
How quickly will I see results?
The results of dermal fillers are noticeable almost immediately. The product continues to develop over time, improving the level of moisture in the skin and stimulating its natural supply of collagen.
How long do the results last?
On average, dermal filler treatments last for 6-12 months.
What are the potential side effects?
You may experience slight tenderness, redness, or swelling. These after-effects are generally mild and should dissipate a short time after your appointment.
What dermal filler products do you use?
At Appleton Park Dental, we offer Juvéderm® and Restylane® to our patients seeking safe and effective dermal filler treatments.
Juvéderm® is a very popular dermal filler product used by many providers of facial aesthetics treatments in the UK. Juvéderm® contains 35% more hyaluronic acid than Restylane®, so its effects often last longer.
Another popular dermal filler we recommend at our practice is Restylane®. It has a firmer, more granular consistency compared to Juvéderm®, making it more suitable for adding volume to the lips and smoothing out particularly deep creases.
