One of the most common reasons for having injectable fillers is to smooth out lines and wrinkles. The filler can be injected under the line to plump out the skin so that the surface is smooth. Fillers can also be used to tackle other signs of ageing, including loss of volume and sagging. You can also have dermal fillers injected to enhance your features. Fillers can be used to enhance your lips, contour your cheekbones, or reshape your chin, and they are also used in non-surgical facelifts and nose jobs.
Injectable fillers come in several forms that are suitable for these different uses. If you are thinking about having this treatment, Dr Bhar will work with you to ensure that you get the right filler for your needs. He will explain the procedure and what it can achieve in detail so that you know what to expect.
Dermal fillers are very safe when they are administered by an experienced doctor who can make sure they are suitable for you. You should avoid fillers if you currently have a rash, acne, inflammation or any other skin problems in the area where you’ll be treated.
Dermal fillers are injected into your skin using a fine needle. The fillers are carefully targeted to create the desired effects, as discussed during your consultation. You may feel some slight discomfort, but your skin can be numbed before the injection is given.
Most dermal fillers are made from a substance called hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in your skin. Once it has been injected, it will encourage regeneration and collagen production, hydrate your skin, and add volume where it is needed. The treatment usually takes about half an hour, but it depends on how many injections are needed to achieve the results.
You should notice an immediate effect after the treatment and it could last for a year or more, depending on the type of filler that was used. You may have a little bit of redness or swelling around the injection sites for up to 48 hours, but you should be able to return to your normal routine immediately, with no time off.
Injectable fillers can be a good choice for contouring and wrinkle treatments:
