Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on botox and dermal fillers.
What are Dermal or Facial Fillers?
Dermal or facial fillers help to restore volume and recover the fullness into the face. Unlike botox which works on dynamic lines.
As we get older, our face naturally loses volume, fat and muscles. This leads to smile lines and the wrinkles around the eyes to become more apparent. Other factors can also effect the condition of our skin, for example, sun exposure, lifestyle choices (smoking, drinking) and our genes.
Dermal or facial fillers can be very helpful in the early signs of aging.
Dermal or facial fillers can be used for the following:
Plump thin lips
Enhance shallow contours
Soften facial creases and wrinkles and
Improve the appearance of recessed scars
There are many types of dermal and facial filler available on the market. The fillers differ in the chemical make-up, how long the filler lasts and each filler has a varying degree of softness. For example, softer filler will be used for lips and stronger filler maybe used to enhance the cheekbones.
Complication from having fillers is very uncommon. Dependent of the filler used and were it has been injected, few patients have said they were left with:
Small lumps where the filler was injected
Skin is a little red with mild swelling
A small amount of bleeding from where the filler was injected
The above conditions are very common and can be alleviated by placing an ice pack on the area.
