Fillers are another viable option that a lot of individuals tend to gravitate towards. The majority of temporary dermal fillers used in the UK are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally abundant in the body that eventually breaks down. Dermal fillers are principally used to enhance the features of the face by adding volume to lips and cheeks, and treating deep skin crevices and wrinkles. Following a consultation at Belledona, we will discuss the best option aligning with your desired result and map out a tailored treatment plan. View our prices below:
How long do fillers last?
The effects of fillers generally last between 6 and 18 months. This figure can differ when accounting for factors such as place of injection and type of fillers used.
Do fillers make your skin worse?
Excessive and improper use of fillers can stretch out your skin and weaken the tissue in the targeted area. For instance, excessively injecting fillers into your lips will stretch out and wrinkly your lips. Therefore, using an experienced technician and discussing a realistic outcome is crucial.
Are fillers preferred over Botox?
Fillers are good at combatting lines when the face is at rest, as opposed to Botox which is good at reducing expressions when the face is moving. The effects of filler usually last longer than Botox, however this generally depends on the type of fillers used. Nonetheless, results are more effective when fillers and Botox are used together.
Do fillers remain in your face forever?
No. Fillers are composed of Hyaluronic acid which eventually breaks down and absorbs into the body, hence why they are temporary and why you will require more sessions after the effects of a single treatment wear off.
Once the effects of filler wear off, will your face look older?
Once fillers breakdown and dissolve, your face will pretty much return to its original state. However, depending on how long and how much filler you have been using, long-term excessive use can make skin sag and accelerate the process of ageing.
How often will you need filler touch-ups?
This depends on the type of filler used and what outcome you desire.
Are fillers painful?
Any procedure involving a needle can be comfortable, but luckily filler needles are very thin so there is only slight pain, and we use anaesthetic cream, which further minimises any potential discomfort.
Can I resume a normal sleeping position after using fillers?
We recommend sleeping on your back in a slightly elevated position and to avoid sleeping on your side for 24-48 hours, as swelling following treatment can regress if a normal sleeping position is assumed.
Can you wear makeup after fillers?
We recommend you wait 24 hours before you apply makeup.
How long does it take to see the effects of filler?
Dermal fillers provide instant results, but it can take up to 4 weeks to see the full effects.
