About Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers, also called skin plumpers, are an excellent treatment to fill fine lines and wrinkles. They enhance contours and facial volume and also improve skin structure and elasticity.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
With the natural ageing process and some environmental factors, our skin loses its plumpness. With age, fine lines become deeper and our skin loses the volume it once had. Dermal fillers, also called skin plumpers, are an excellent treatment to fill these lines and replace volume.
How does dermal filler work?
Dermal fillers replace the collagen which is lost due to natural ageing or skin damage. This results in smoothing of wrinkles and tightening of skin.
What does dermal filler treatment involve?
At The Manchester Private Hospital, we use the new generation of fillers. These fillers are of a thinner consistency and mimic the skin’s natural collagen. The filler can be used over a larger area, giving a more natural appearance.
Products we use:
Radiesse® is used to give volume in the cheeks and restore a youthful plumpness in the skin, Juvederm® is used to fill deeper lines and wrinkles. Restylane® gives amazing results for enhancing skin structure, reducing wrinkles and giving facial volume
How long does the treatment session take?
A series of injections of filler are made in the area to be treated. This normally takes between 15 and 20 minutes depending on the area to be treated. Immediately after the treatment, you may feel some throbbing; this is entirely normal and will pass in the coming hours.
After the treatment and recovery
Over the following few days, you may notice some swelling and bruising. This is completely normal and will fade in the week following your treatment. You should avoid direct sunlight/heat and saunas for at least eight hours after the treatment.
How long will the results last?
The effects of the filler will be immediately visible and it can last for between 9 and 18 months depending on the condition of your skin and other factors.
