Dermal Fillers

As we age, we lose the volume in our faces that makes our skin look plump and youthful. Dermal fillers can be used to ‘fill out’ lines and wrinkles and replace lost volume in the skin caused by aging.

They can also be used as a non-surgical alternative to facial implants to add volume to the cheeks or chin, to correct minor deformities in the nose, to get rid of hollows underneath the eyes and to plump up thin lips.

There are many different types of dermal fillers available which last anywhere from 6 months and 2 years. Although dermal fillers, particularly temporary fillers, are now very safe, you should make sure you are seeing a properly qualified practitioner to avoid any complications.

Permanent fillers are available at The Bradford Clinic as well as fillers that naturally stimulate your own collagen production.

As the use of dermal filler products has grown so has the choice of different filler substances. There are now many options on the market, so it is important to find the right product for you.

Most people who opt for dermal fillers are over 35 and are experiencing the effects of premature aging, however younger people in their 20s often have fillers to give them a sexier pout or correct minor deformities in the nose as an alternative to a nose job.

If you have any of the following concerns, you could be a candidate for dermal fillers:

· Deep nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds)

· Teartroughs

· Smoker’s lines around the mouth

· Loss of volume in the cheeks

· Thin or un-shapely lips

· Minor nose deformities such as nasal humps

· Scars including acne

· Fine lines on forehead, neck, cheeks and around eyes

· A receding chin

Fillers are generally very safe as they contain natural ingredients, pregnant women or women who are breast feeding are advised not to have treatment

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Naturally-derived or made from synthetic material, Dermal Fillers are injected  directly into skin with the purpose of plumping that area to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or fold is gone.

How Long Do They Last?

Depending on the type of filler, the effects can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.
