Cosmetic treatment to restore skin appearance through wrinkle reduction and volume creation.
Dermal Fillers are a non-surgical and non-invasive cosmetic treatment used to reduce and soften facial wrinkles, contour and create facial volume, and augment facial features, thus restoring a smoother skin appearance. Dermal fillers are non-permanent tissue friendly gels that replenish hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally exists in the body and is gradually dissolved over time.
Dentists have experience and knowledge of the oral-facial area and injections, with a comprehensive understanding of facial expression dynamics. They are also designated prescribers, thus able to and legally allowed to hold stock of and prescribe prescription-only drugs for cosmetic purposes. Additionally, dental practices are regulated by the Care Quality Commission ensuring the highest levels of quality and safety are being met.
Following a thorough consultation to discuss your concerns, the dentist will recommend which areas of the face should be treated. This decision will be based on achieving a result that not only you are happy with, but one that also suits your face.
Prior to administering the filler, the skin will be cleansed and disinfected, and the areas being treated will be marked out. The filler will then be injected safely and effectively.
You will then be given post-treatment instructions to ensure the best results.
Each appointment, depending on treatment required, will take around 20- 40 minutes.
|Nasolabial folds||Fillmed/Restylane||From £325|
|Marionette Lines||Fillmed/Restylane||From £325|
Initial results can be seen immediately with further improvements visible over the course of 7-14 days.
Any post treatment side-effects should subside within two weeks. The majority of patients require no downtime following treatment and can return to work and normal activities the same day. Post-treatment instructions will be given at the end of the appointment
Dermal fillers are not permanent, and results can last between 6 and 15months. The dentist will discuss your requirements and advise a period between treatments.
Depending on the patient and the area being treated, some mild discomfort is possible. However, this is usually temporary, as the filler solution is injected relatively slowly and gently using a very fine needle. For most cases you will also be offered an anaesthetic to allow for a more comfortable experience.
Having dermal fillers is usually safe if it’s done by an experienced and suitably qualified practitioner. As with any cosmetic treatment, there is a risk of adverse reactions, however these are usually quite rare. You can be rest assured that your treatments would be carried out by a qualified healthcare professional who would know how best to advise or treat you should an adverse reaction occur.
