Frequently Asked Questions
Dermal fillers are used for facial aesthetic treatments and are injected into the skin. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and to revitalise the skin. Dermal fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a substance that naturally exists in your body.
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. It binds water and can act as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin.
By boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look. Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel consisting of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid. The gel is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. It is long-lasting but not permanent.
ermal filler injections provide an easy way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth the skin and give a more youthful appearance. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 9 months. Dermal filler injections can give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression. As your face changes over time, dermal fillers allow you to control you looks subtly as you age.
Before: During the initial consultation at Face360 London, the doctor will discuss your treatment expectations. After discussion of what you wish to achieve and assessment of your treatment needs, the doctor will recommend which dermal filler treatment is most suitable for you.
After the consultation, and if you are happy to proceed, your practitioner will help you complete a medical history form and you will need to sign a consent form before treatment can progress.
During: Dermal filler is injected into the skin in small amounts using a very fine needle. The gel provides natural volume to smooth away the appearance of lines and wrinkles, enhance facial shape, or create fullness in the lips or cheeks. Dermal filler products improve the elasticity and texture of skin, restoring and maintaining the skins hydro-balance.
The treatment is quick, typically taking about 30 minutes. Treatment with dermal fillers do not affect facial expression and the benefits can normally be seen instantly.
After: Dermal filler products are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. To ensure an optimal and long-lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-12 months after your initial treatment. Discuss with your practitioner when a follow-up appointment may be appropriate.
After a treatment some reactions might occur, these include; are slight redness, swelling, itching, bruising, pain and tenderness. The reactions are generally mild to moderate and usually disappear shortly after injection. They typically resolve spontaneously within one or two days, but for some treatments they may last longer.
One of the great advantages of dermal filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the treatment. A treatment of the lips or cheeks lasts about 6 months.
Most people can benefit from dermal filler treatment. If you wish to:
- reduce lines and wrinkles
- create more defined or fuller lips,
- define the contours of your face, such as chin or cheek,
- boost your skin’s vitality, for a healthier more hydrated skin tone (e.g.
face, hands, neck or décolletage)
Dermal fillers should not be used in or near areas where there is or has been skin disease, inflammation or skin related problems. Dermal fillers have not been tested in pregnant or breast-feeding women, Individuals with medical conditions that lower the body’s immune response or individuals undergoing therapy that is immunosuppressive may be more prone to infection by a skin injection procedure.
During your pre-treatment consultation, you should thoroughly discuss your medical history with the doctor at Face Clinic London.
Generally, pain relief is not necessary when injecting into the skin to correct lines and wrinkles. Some people may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort. A local anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area for a more comfortable treatment experience.
The lips are a highly sensitive part of the body and, therefore, at Face360 London we only use dermal filler products with local anaesthetic lidocaine included for a more comfortable treatment experience.
More than 10 million treatments have been performed since the launch of Restylane dermal filler in 1996. Product related reactions are rare. There are some injection related reactions which may occur after any injection; they typically resolve spontaneously a few days after injection to the skin, within a week after injection into the lips. These reactions include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the injection site.
After lip enhancement, lips may swell for up to a week, but this typically reduces after two to three days.
We would hope not! Our Doctors approach every case as if it is a work of art. They will assess the dynamics of your face so as to make sure you keep everything in balance. We’re here to enhance, and we believe less is more. Our Doctors will work with you to achieve desired and subtle results.
Unfortunately, it does happen. Any swelling or bruises will fade with time – ideally within a couple of days, but in some cases up to 14 days. A face to face consultation with a medical professional will help you to determine when to get your Fillers to combat this! Make sure you keep hydrated, and if needed apply arnica to the treated area to help with bruising.
Nope! The Fillers that we use, Juvederm and Restylane, are made up of Hyaluronic Acid which is a naturally occurring substance. Over time your body will break down the Hyaluronic Acid, and the treated area will go back to the way it was before.
Whilst the Dermal Fillers we use at Face360 London are, on the whole, safe; they are not without risk. We recommend that you seek a Medical Professional to administer ANY injectable treatment, as they will take a detailed medical history from you; ensuring you have no conditions that might increase risk of unwanted side effects. At Face Clinic London, only fully GDC registered carry out our Dermal Filler treatments, and no treatment is ever carried out without a face to face consultation.
The effects of semi-permanent fillers will usually last between 6-12 months. This does depend on how your body reacts to and breaks down the Filler used, as well as certain environmental factors. We recommend you make sure you drink plenty of water and moisturise sufficiently – this will help your Filler do its job! Make sure you seek medical advice on how to care for your treated area.
