Dermal Fillers

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers restore lost volume that comes to us all with the aging process and can help to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance the lips, augment the cheeks, reduce fine lines and wrinkles such as smoker’s lines and nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines), re-shape the nose (non-surgical Rhinoplasty), correct hollow tear troughs (the area under the eye) and rejuvenate the backs of the hands and neck 

 

What does treatment with dermal fillers involve? 

Before your treatment starts, you will have a thorough medical consultation with one of medical practitioners, where we will ask you about your main concerns and make sure that you fully understand the treatment, risks involved and explore any alternative options.

Once all parties are happy, we will take pre-treatment clinical photos, we then apply a topical local anaesthetic cream to increase comfort during the procedure. 

Depending on the area being treated we may use a needle or a cannula to place the product under the skin. There may be a mild stinging or burning sensation as the product is injected, but any discomfort should be minimal due to the anaesthetic. Most treatments usually take less than 30 minutes to complete.

Are dermal fillers safe and is there any recovery time?

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in the right hands are very safe and effective, Hyaluronic acid fillers globally have very low complication rates. 

Hyaluronic acid is in fact a molecule that is produced naturally within our own bodies, consequently allergic reactions to Hyaluronic acid fillers is extremely rare. 

Common side effects can include redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site for a few days after treatment. That will resolve without intervention during the healing period.

More severe adverse reactions can include granulomas (nodules), necrosis and excessive swelling, but these are very rare. Here at The English Beauty Aesthetics, we are trained medical professionals who can diagnose and treat any adverse reactions immediately.

HA fillers can also be reversed using an enzyme called “hyaluronidase” which effectively “dissolves” the product.
