Reducing the impact of ageing using dermal fillers
The signs of ageing
Day-to-day life affects our appearances in multiple ways and, as we age, our skin can lose some of the elasticity it had during our younger years. As the crow’s feet begin to form around our eyes and the lines become more visible on the face, some people can find this rather frustrating. Therefore, we, at Stangrove Court Dental Practice, are there to provide you with the solutions, including dermal fillers Kent, to help restore the lovely appearance of your face.
Is having a dermal filler a surgical procedure?
Facial rejuvenation is a desire shared by many but the idea of having a surgical procedure is either too costly or too terrifying. Luckily, dermal fillers Kent are a facial rejuvenation process that is performed by injections into the skin ensuring that no cuts or surgical procedures are carried out.
Why is it important to have a professional make the injections? When having an injection into the face with a filler, there are numerous factors that need to be considered including placement of the injection and the type of dermal filler to be used. Dermal fillers can be bought over the internet but, unfortunately, such fillers may not have undergone the necessary safety checks. Therefore, it is uncertain as to what is being injected into the body and this can be highly dangerous and also potentially cause an undesirable appearance as the dermal filler may not create the desired effect. This is why visiting your dental practice and discussing your options with our dentist is of the utmost importance.
You can rest assured that all the required safety checks have been carried out and put in place and know that our dentist understands the importance of placement when injecting the filler. Whilst this may all sound a little daunting, our dental team has you covered and are there to support and advise you before, during and after the dermal fillers Kent procedure. How long does dermal filler last?
When considering a treatment or procedure, one of the most commonly asked questions is ‘how long will it last’. Whilst there is no definitive answer, in standard cases, the filler can last from about 6 to 12 months. It is then topped up whenever needed as each patient’s case is different. Aftercare treatment
As with all treatments and procedures, before it takes place, a discussion will be scheduled for you with our dentist for a brief chat about your aftercare. We do not expect you to remember this and take notes but would like to ensure that you understand all parts of the process. Once the filler has been administered into the skin it is important to leave the area to rest, this means no touching, using facial creams or cleansers on the area. It is important to carry out only some light physical activity if any along with avoiding alcohol for the first 24 hours. By following this short term care advice the filler should settle effectively allowing the facial definition to appear revitalised and plumper in appearance.
