Dermal Fillers Leeds
As we age, our faces undergo changes that lead to visible signs of ageing. The reason is that we lose volume in the structural parts of our face, including fat, skin, muscle, and bone. Changes in these structures can lead to less volume and elasticity, “deflation” of facial fat, and more. These changes cause the signs of ageing to be more apparent in our faces. As a result, wrinkles, lines, sagging skin, and more become more visible.
This is where dermal fillers Leeds can help; they work to diminish the signs of ageing for a more youthful appearance.
What are Dermal Fillers and What Can They Do?
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that are used to treat the signs of ageing in the face. They work to restore volume, soften wrinkles, and cause the lips to appear fuller. Dermal fillers are applied by a healthcare professional.
These treatments are popular due to their instant results. Dermal fillers offer a way to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery. The fillers are made of ingredients that are naturally found in the body. At Leeds Private Hospital, we use hyaluronic acid gel fillers to improve the appearance of ageing skin. These injectable treatments are also used to enhance the definition of facial features, recontour, and rebalance the appearance.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) naturally occurs in the body, and it works to keep the skin hydrated and volumized. HA fillers can last between six months or more before they’re gradually absorbed into the body. Dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid create a natural appearance after they’re injected. In addition, these treatments can be dissolved with a solution in case a person isn’t happy with their appearance. In addition, many HA fillers are also mixed with lidocaine, a numbing medication that makes the treatment more comfortable.
What Dermal Fillers Can’t Do
Dermal fillers are not able to give the same results as surgical procedures, such as a facelift, eye lift, or brow lift. However, they can delay the need for a facelift until a more appropriate time.
In addition, dermal fillers are temporary treatments for signs of facial ageing. These treatments will need to be ongoing to maintain the appearance of a rejuvenated face.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
A person is an excellent candidate for dermal fillers if they:
- Don’t smoke
- Are physically healthy
- Are committed to maintaining skin health
- Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations for the improvement of their appearance
Who Should Not Have Dermal Fillers Leeds Treatments?
You may not be a good candidate for dermal fillers if you have:
- An active infection near the site of injection
- Known allergy or hypersensitivity to the materials used in the injections or an allergy to lidocaine
- Several allergies and sensitivities (speak with your healthcare professional before receiving treatment with dermal fillers)
How Long Does Treatment Take for Dermal Fillers?
Treatment with dermal fillers for one area of the face can take up to 30 minutes. However, if multiple areas are treated, the time necessary for treatment increases, though it may be necessary to schedule more than one appointment in some cases.
Because dermal fillers dissolve over time, it may be necessary to repeat treatment every 9-12 months.
Do You Use Anesthesia?
Dermal fillers can be mixed with a mild local anaesthetic to make your treatment more comfortable. This works for most of our patients. However, if needed, we can discuss the option of using a numbing cream on the skin 20-30 minutes prior to your treatment.
Dermal Fillers Aftercare Requirements
After your treatment, it’s essential to follow these instructions:
After your injection(s) are completed, your face is cleaned. It’s recommended that you avoid touching your face for 6 hours. After this, you can clean your skin with water and a gentle cleanser.
Avoid makeup for at least 6 hours after treatment. After this, use mineral-based makeup if you’d like to wear makeup.
Avoid exposing your skin to intense heat (UV rays, steam room, and more)
Avoid pressure on treated areas for the first few nights—try to sleep on your back
Avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours.
Avoid alcohol for the first 24 hours.
Avoid having a facial, facial waxing, AHA peels, or energy-based treatments and microdermabrasion for two weeks after treatment.
Do Dermal Fillers Carry Any Risks?
As with any medical treatment, dermal fillers can carry risks, including:
- An allergic reaction at the injection site or throughout the body
- Swelling & inflammation
- Changes in skin colour
- Mild pain
- Bleeding or bruising at the injection site
- Irregularities in the surface, contours, and firmness of the skin
- Rarely, blood vessel damage
If you have any concerns, it’s best to talk with your healthcare provider to see if dermal fillers are right for you.
How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost?
The cost of treatment can vary depending on several factors. It’s necessary to consider the amount of filler needed and the size/number of areas that will be treated.
