What Can Dermal Fillers Be Used For?
Here in London, our team of experts carry out more than dental treatments. We also offer injectables, such as dermal fillers. There are so many fantastic ways to use these, and we’ll talk through them in today’s blog post. We hope you find it useful, and if you’re considering treatment, please do get in touch with us.
One of the most famous uses of dermal fillers has to be in the lips. Ideal for those with thin lips and an asymmetrical smile, lip fillers can balance your pout and create shape, volume and definition. Lip fillers can also be injected into the lines around the mouth to smooth and refine the skin; periodontal, marionette and nasolabial are common areas to treat.

The skin under the eyes thins with age, and the resulting loss of volume can create sagging, under-eye bags and dark circles. Plumping the tear trough area with dermal filler creates a more youthful, wide-awake appearance.
Sagging skin around the cheeks can create a hollow appearance. Injecting with dermal filler can lift, shape and sculpt the area and restore loss of volume at the same time. It can also target lines around the area.
From smoothing a dimpled chin to refining the outline of the face, dermal filler is a great tool for sculpting. It can be used to target sagging jowls and an uneven appearance.
We’ll round off this post with a few common, quick questions about dermal fillers.
1) Does the procedure hurt?
No. Fine needles, a light touch and a numbing agent can make the treatment feel comfortable.
2) How long do results last?
Typically around 18 months, though it varies from person to person.
3) Are dermal fillers dissolvable?
They can be. Those made of hyaluronic acid may be dissolvable with hyaluronidase.
4) Is the treatment expensive?
Not at all. It’s a more cost-effective alternative to surgery and our clients love how long-lasting results are.
5) Why should I choose you?
As a dentist, we’re aware of much more than your face. We’re experts in your smile, so carry out our treatments to give you the best smile possible.
