There’s been a widespread uptake in non-surgical facial treatments in recent years, and dermal fillers and injectables now rank among the most popular. While thousands of women around the world have achieved great results with these treatments, not all fillers are identical. Before opting for dermal fillers, it’s important to understand just what you’re getting.
An introduction to dermal fillers
Save for a very lucky few, it’s inevitable that as we age and collagen levels naturally decrease lines, wrinkles and creases will develop on our face and neck. Fillers are designed to restore the plumpness and volume of lips and skin, thereby reducing the visibility of wrinkles, scars and similar imperfections. Dermal fillers are substances injected beneath the skin in a targeted approach to plump the skin in those areas. In some cases, they may even assist in natural collagen production. Fillers are designed to be metabolised by the body and as such are not permanent. Lip fillers may last for between three and six months, and facial fillers for between six months and two years.
How they differ
There are several types and brands of dermal fillers, and among those, they may have various compositions and ingredients. Fillers tend to be either hyaluronic acid or collagen-based. Different types of fillers may be used in other areas, and they may also differ ineffectiveness. As this is a burgeoning area, the research is being updated continuously in the quest for better results. While new products may be more effective than older varieties, they also need to have been tested and approved by the medical profession and government health bodies before use.
If you are keen on wrinkle fillers or even just interested in finding out what sort of results you might see, then you must find the right Cosmetic Nurse to help. In deciding on who to perform your injectable cosmetic treatment, always look for a qualified, experienced and well-reviewed Cosmetic Nurse. Request specific details including their area of speciality, years of experience and how many people have they treated. Don’t be shy in asking to see before and after photos.
Dermal fillers should be provided only by a certified, qualified and highly experienced Cosmetic Nurse. In most cases, it’s a relatively quick and painless procedure with minimal downtime. There is a potential for side effects, ineffective results and more severe problems if injections are not done with care and accuracy, or with poor quality filler.
For the best and most effective results, quality and professionalism are paramount.
