Are dermal fillers right for me?

When it comes to cosmetic treatment, dermal fillers are one of the most popular options with our clients. They have a multitude of benefits and can help you look younger and fresher faced, which is undoubtedly an attractive proposition! Here, we take a closer look at what you can expect from dermal fillers and help you decide if this form of cosmetic treatment is right for you.


What are dermal fillers? 

Dermal fillers are a cosmetic treatment that can restore fullness and volume in the face by diminishing facial lines. As such, they’re great for enhancing facial features, and they help you look fresher-faced and younger. The main component of dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, which the body produces naturally. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for keeping you hydrated and also makes your skin flexible, which is why it’s so popular in a wide range of skincare products. That being said, there are different types of dermal fillers available, and we discuss the best course of treatment for your circumstances at an initial appointment at our clinic.

Once you decide that you want to proceed with dermal fillers, we invite you for an initial consultation, where we outline the treatment and explain the different options available to you. 


The benefits of dermal fillers 

There are lots of benefits to getting dermal fillers, and it’s an extremely popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Primarily, people turn to dermal fillers to plump up wrinkles, smoothen facial lines, and restore facial volume. All of the benefits of dermal fillers contribute to making you look younger, as the hyaluronic acid within hydrates the skin and effectively smoothens out lines that are currently on your face. Another significant benefit of dermal fillers is that you see results almost immediately after treatment, and they will last for several months into the future. The procedure is also pain-free and non-evasive, meaning that you don’t need to worry about downtime in the immediate aftermath of your treatment. 

So, to recap, the specific benefits of turning to dermal fillers include to: 

  • Straighten nasolabial folds around the cheeks and mouth 
  • Help you achieve thinner lips 
  • Reduce wrinkles and other facial lines 
  • Fix a sagging or drooping chin 
  • Enliven dull-looking skin


Are dermal fillers suitable for you? 

A lot of patients question whether or not dermal fillers are a suitable course of treatment for them. One way to tell if you’re an ideal candidate is if you notice a deepening of the nasolabial folds on your face. These are the deep lines that form around your mouth and are sometimes known as marionette lines. Another good sign is if you notice that your cheekbones are deflating, particularly if they were prominent when you were younger. If you’re not sure if dermal fillers are right for you, please do reach out and ask one of our experts.
