Dermal Fillers near me – How to find the best dermal fillers clinic in Kent
If you’re concerned about facial asymmetry or ageing and wish to fight the effects of gravity, you may be considering dermal filler treatments. Fillers don’t ‘freeze’ the muscles – instead, they enhance facial contours. They’re used to correct lines, restore volume, create structure and definition, and lift the face – all with appealing precision and subtlety.
What you need to know about dermal fillers
The most commonly used fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally found in the skin. Thanks to its ability to store moisture, hyaluronic acid is responsible for producing a plump and hydrated look. Hyaluronic acid fillers are gel-like substances that create volume in the skin and deeper facial structures.
Once injected, they begin to integrate into the substance of the skin, attracting water molecules and hydrating the surrounding tissues. Whilst there are other types of filler available on the market, they are less popular as they are non-reversible, which means that they can’t be dissolved in the event of complications.
With age, we lose significant amounts of collagen and facial volume, leading to sunken cheeks, nasolabial lines, upper lip lines, and jowls. Dermal fillers come in a wide variety of densities to suit the various areas of volume loss. When placed strategically, they help restore this lost volume and definition for a softer, youthful appearance.
Where can Dermal fillers be used?
Fillers were first used to treat facial lines and creases by plumping them out. But over recent years, techniques have evolved, and fillers are now used to augment and enhance facial features by creating sharper cheekbones, more defined jawlines, and straighter noses. Fillers can also be used on other parts of the body, such as the décolletage, neck, and hands, to rejuvenate crepey skin.
When treating a face with fillers, we will look at the face as a whole and consider what will make that person look fresher and restored and often, this is by treating a combination of areas.
Dermal fillers have the power to:
- Define cheekbones and restore lost volume in the midface and temples
- Soften and reduce deep lines on the forehead or around the eyes
- Lift and smooth lines and folds around the mouth and nose
- Define and enhance lips
- Strengthen and define the chin and jawline
- Straighten and smooth bumps on the nose
Are dermal fillers right for you?
Dermal fillers are ideal for those with mild to moderate volume loss and sagging and can also be combined with non-surgical skin tightening procedures such as the Profound RF or Sofwave, which work exceptionally well in combination with injectables because whilst one is lifting and providing structure to the facial contours, the other tightens loose skin and pulls everything back to its rightful place.
They’re also helpful in balancing asymmetry – sometimes, adding just a spot of filler in the right place can even things out and help you look more balanced.
Dermal fillers give an immediate result that can last up to 12 months, depending on the treatment area and product used. There is little or no downtime with the treatment, and you can return to your normal activities straight after.
