Dermal facial fillers can be used to plump up your skin, smoothen wrinkles and fill out deep lines to reduce the signs of aging, at a fraction of the price of traditional facelifts. Some will fill hollows, lines, and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes and prove to show results that can last anywhere between a couple of months up to an entire year.

As the popularity of facial fillers continues to grow, so do the amount of questions we get asked about them. Therefore, we decided to create this ultimate guide to facial fillers which will answer all of the questions you may have about the different varieties of facial aesthetics and even the ones you haven’t thought about yet!

What is a Dermal Filler?

In short, a dermal facial filler is an injectable solution that fills out soft tissue under the skin that has lost its natural elasticity resulting in the skin looking plumper and rejuvenated. There are a few different variations of fillers – they can vary in consistency as different levels of thickness are suitable for different areas and some may contain a local anesthetic.

Traditionally, facial fillers are used to reduce signs of aging and make skin look younger and fresher. However, they can even be used on scars – particularly acne scarring. If you suffer from scarring, it is best to book a consultation to see whether filler could help reduce your scarring.

Are Facial Fillers Safe?

Probably the most important question we get asked and most frequent; are dermal facial fillers safe?

The easiest way to answer this question is by stating the obvious – if you are using a qualified professional then of course facial fillers are safe, but if you are using a black market doctor you found online selling their services at £10 per injection, then there would definitely be cause for concern.

The practitioner will ask if you are allergic to any sort of creams, medications or local anaesthetics in your first consultation – especially if you are new to facial fillers and have never had them before. They will ask a series of questions around the type of procedure you are looking into, to ensure it is the right one for you and your skin.

The best way to ensure a safe outcome with your facial filler procedure is to take time to find a practitioner who is a qualified professional with a proven reputable record with conducting such procedures in clean, safe environments.

How Long Do Facial Fillers Last?

How long the results last for varies from several months to over a year or two. Some research shows that repeated injections may help your body naturally start to produce its own collagen, resulting in a reduced number of lines and wrinkles. We have also found that less filler is needed over a longer period of time and still achieves the same outcome.

How Much Do Facial Fillers Cost?

There is no straight answer for this question as it would all depend upon what treatments you are looking for and the results you want to achieve.

Here are a few factors you will need to take into consideration when thinking about the cost of facial fillers:

  • They type of filler used
  • The duration of the procedure
  • The outcome you want to achieve
