Dermal Filler FAQ
What Can Dermal Fillers Be Used For?
The beauty of dermal fillers and non-surgical facelifts is that they are very versatile. Practitioners can use the injectables for a range of different cosmetic procedures with different natural results. Whether you want to rejuvenate your face, enhance your lips, or augment your nose, dermal fillers can be used to create undetectable results. These are just a few of the popular uses for dermal fillers and non-surgical facelifts:
Over time, lips can lose their plumpness and definition because of a loss of fat and collagen. Some patients are conscious that they have always had thin lips, while others feel that their lips have lost shape over the years. Dermal fillers can be used to temporarily enhance and contour the look of lips, whether it is for a fuller finish or new shape entirely.
There are many concerns that lip fillers can become misshapen or unnatural. However, an experienced practitioner will be able to carefully use just the right amount of filler to enhance lips and give a natural and subtle finish.
The 8 Point Lift
The 8 point lift is a non-surgical facelift that uses dermal fillers on various locations on the face to reveal a more youthful look. Also known as the Fluid Face Lift, this treatment uses facial volume enhancers in the cheekbones, tear trough, jawline, preauricular depressions, lips, chin and around the mouth and eyes.
The fillers can be used to replace the volume that has been lost through ageing, and the results can be impressive yet natural-looking. By re-inflating these 8 points on the face, it gives the natural perception of a facelift without the need for cosmetic surgery. At Hans Place, we know every patient is different, so we create a bespoke fluid facelift, based on the needs of the client and what will deliver the best results.
Minimising Lines And Wrinkles
Everyone knows that lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of ageing, but dermal fillers give an easy and effective way of combatting these ageing signs. Fillers can be used to create smooth, youthful-looking skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The result is a natural and fresh look that is subtle enough not to be noticed as work being done, but effective enough for results to be seen. Dermal fillers are regularly recommended for reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, mouth and lips.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
Many people often wonder if injecting the skin with substances like dermal fillers is really safe. Practitioners have been using fillers for many years in the cosmetic surgery industry. When used safely and effectively, they generally do not cause any issues to the skin or patients’ health.
The dermal filler will integrate with the skin tissue and allow vital elements such as hormones and oxygen to pass through. This results in glowing, healthy and natural-looking skin. Over time, dermal fillers are broken down using the body’s normal biological processes, and the body then removes the fillers naturally. This is why they are a temporary treatment that needs to be redone periodically if you want to maintain the same appearance.
Why Choose Dermal Fillers And Non-Surgical Face Lifts?
There are many reasons why more and more people are choosing non-invasive treatments, such as dermal fillers over cosmetic surgery. Some of the main benefits include:
Cosmetic procedures, like any type of surgical procedure, is not without its risks. However, in general, non-surgical facelift and dermal fillers are far less risky. The treatment itself is very low risk in experienced hands as it involves just a small number of local injections and very minimal amounts of anaesthetic. Results of dermal fillers are not permanent, so there is no risk of being stuck with results you are not happy with.
Value For Money
Smaller treatments such as dermal fillers are always going to be far cheaper than full-blown cosmetic surgery. When you go down the route of surgery, you will need to cover the costs of hospital stays, anaesthetic fees and much more. Dermal fillers and non-surgical facelifts are completed within a matter of hours, and you can go home the same day, making the overall cost much less.
Cosmetic surgeries often have quite lengthy recovery times, as the body needs to recover from major surgery. This can dramatically affect day to day activities and life in general. Dermal fillers and non-surgical facelifts have little to no recovery time, and patients can be back to full health the same day.
