Has the skin on your face lost some of its youthful, springy texture? Then dermal fillers, an injectable cosmetic treatment that could be just what you need to improve your appearance. Dermal fillers at Crescent Lodge Dental Practice London are offered alongside our other facial rejuvenation service with botulinum toxin type A for wrinkle reduction.
Dermal fillers, which are sterile hyaluronic acid gels made from non-animal sources, are injected into specific areas in the skin to give it a more youthful appearance. As we age, the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid is lost giving rise to the appearance of lines, wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers replace this lost hyaluronic acid, giving the targeted areas a firmer more rounded look.
This is an ideal treatment for defining facial contours, creating fuller lips, or smoothing out lines, wrinkles and scars.
The injections, which only take a few minutes, are usually administered after an anaesthetic has been applied either directly onto the skin, or incorporated into the syringe containing the filler. This serves to prevent any pain or discomfort from the injection. The effect of the treatment is visible immediately.
Depending on the area treated, skin type and the injection technique, the effect of treatment with these products can last 6-12 months. Touch-up and follow-up treatments help sustain the degree of correction. No allergy test is required before treatment and the dermal fillers we use are not permanent.
