What are dermal fillers?
A dermal filler treatment has the same result as a Botox procedure, they both aim to smooth the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. At Stangrove Court Dental Practice we aim to achieve a natural youthful result when delivering this treatment. A natural component produced by the human body is inserted into the problem areas. The filler will usually contain sterile, hyaluronic acid gel, which makes it cruelty free. When increasing in age the natural hyaluronic acid produced by the skin eventually disappears. This will ultimately increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers are also used for other issues surrounding lip enhancement. Alongside this, they are also used to shape the facial area, and improve hand and neck contours. If you are looking into dermal fillers Kent you can do no better than to book an appointment with our dental practice in Edenbridge.
How does a dermal filler treatment work?
Before the treatment can take place a local anaesthetic will be used to reduce pain in the treated area and to minimise discomfort. The next step involves the actual dermal filler which is then injected into the skin; this usually takes a few minutes. The difference between Botox and dermal filler is that the overall effect of the dermal filler treatment is visibly evident immediately. The effect of the dermal filler can last for a duration of 6-12 months depending on several factors. This includes the treated area, skin type and the injection technique. Lip fillers usually typically last around the 6 month range. To maintain the look that the dermal filler produces it is highly recommended to book in for follow-up treatments. This will be very beneficial as it will help keep the plumped up appearance throughout the course of time.
Benefits of dermal fillers
Dermal fillers Kent have many life benefits, mainly including the fact they provide a youthful appearance in a non-surgical way. However, there are many more other advantages that dermal fillers can produce.
Beneficial for the skin
In most cases, fillers will contain hyaluronic acid which is a naturally produced component that helps the skin's surface. Since this natural occurring substance is common to the body there is a less likely chance that an individual will get an allergic reaction. Fillers tend to feel natural beneath the skin.
Dermal fillers in most cases have a natural and subtle looking effect to the patient's face. The results make a visible difference, however it is done in a way that is discreet and will not be overtly noticeable. This is beneficial for those who do not want public awareness surrounding their treatment.
Another benefit that comes with getting dermal fillers Kent is that they can diminish and improve any signs of scarring on the facial area.
This is an advantage for those who are tired of covering their injuries with makeup to hide visible scars, which can be the result of accident or acne for example. Our colleagues will ensure that you are an eligible candidate for the treatment. They will also advise and help you to come to a decision whether or not dermal fillers are an appropriate option for your skin type.
