Cosmetic or dermal fillers have gained a reputation as something of a wonder treatment in recent years, and as their reputation has spread, so too has their popularity. Many people are using fillers regularly to help smooth facial lines, but what you may not realise is that wrinkles arenâ€™t the only target. Dermal fillers can also help smooth the lines around the mouth and lips and achieve a fuller plumper look. So if youâ€™re keen on having the perfect pout, then perhaps fillers might be for you.
So what are fillers?
With each passing year, the collagen levels in your skin decrease, and it loses its elasticity. The result of this loss can be the development of lines and wrinkles, often on the brow, around the eyes, and mouth. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment designed to help reduce the depth of lines and give the skin a smoother and hopefully more youthful appearance.
The procedure involves the injection of a gel-like substance beneath the dermal layer, which plumps the skin and â€˜fills inâ€™ creases and lines. The number of injections depends on the area targeted and what youâ€™re hoping to achieve, but in general, treatments take minutes rather than hours. People can even make lunchtime appointments and be back at work in no time at all.
Are they just for lip lines?
Lip fillers work in two ways. They can help reduce the vertical lines and other wrinkles that appear on the edge of the mouth and often cause lipstick to bleed. They can also be used to help give an overall fuller appearance to the lips. For many people, the aim is for both smoother and fuller lips. Perfect pout? Yes, please.
So what else do I need to know?
Dermal fillersÂ involve small injections of gel, typicallyÂ madeÂ up of hyaluronic acid, that fills in wrinkles and adds volume to soft tissue. You can haveÂ dermal fillersÂ in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth and jawline, as well asÂ lip fillersÂ administered directly into theÂ lipÂ tissue.
Dermal fillers are not permanent.
In general, lip fillers may last between six and nine months. Many people like the temporary nature of fillers and are happy to return for a repeat treatment once the original has worn off. Like any cosmetic procedure, there may be side effects in some people, so itâ€™s essential that you first have a chat with one of our consultants who can give you all the details.
