So you know you might like to get fillers, and you’ve chosen to visit Dermoperfection’s leading Birmingham medical skin and cosmetic clinic to ensure you will be in safe hands. But we know you may have more questions, so here are some answers to the most common queries!
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables, which are made from the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, most commonly used to fill lines and wrinkles, and add volume to areas such as the lips and cheeks. We use reputable filler brands Belotero and Juvéderm.
Where can they be used?
Fillers can be used to sculpt or fill the cheeks, lips, chin, jawline, tear troughs, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, smoker’s lines, nose and more.
Can I have fillers in more than one area at once?
Yes! Many patients opt for several treatments at the same time.
How long does it take?
This depends on your individual treatment plan, however it usually lasts between 30 minutes and an hour.
Does it hurt?
Many patients find fillers more comfortable than expected, and our fillers contain lidocaine, an anaesthetic to minimise discomfort. Dermoperfection’s expert clinicians are very skilled, so you should only feel a slight sting during treatment.
How quickly will I see results?
Results are visible immediately after the procedure! There may be some redness or swelling around the injection points, however this subsides quickly.
How long do fillers last?
Dermal fillers are non-permanent, and results are usually visible for 6-18 months. You can discuss when to book top-ups when you visit our clinic for your appointment.
Do fillers stimulate collagen production?
Yes, several studies have suggested that fillers induce the formation of collagen, resulting in skin that looks fresher and younger for longer!
Are fillers safe?
Fillers are very safe when administered by an experienced and medically qualified practitioner. We only used our two FDA-approved filler brands, Juvéderm and Belotero, and our team of professionals have years of experience and training, so we can minimise side effects and create natural results.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Swelling and redness should go down after one or two days. Some patients may also experience raised or inflamed skin and itchiness in this time. You will also need to pause exercise for 24 hours after the procedure, however you can eat and carry on other normal activities.
What’s the difference between fillers and anti-wrinkle injections?
Both of these are injectables, but anti-wrinkle injections relaxes muscle movement whereas fillers simply plump out and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. To discuss both of these treatments, you can book a complimentary consultation with us.
