Fillers are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that are safe and effective – if carried out by a professional. When seeking these type of treatments, it is paramount that they are performed by a reputable and experienced specialist.
So what are fillers actually for? They replace the hyaluronic acid that becomes lost with age. and plump up the age lines, wrinkles and grooves on your face, filling them in order to make them appear rejuvenated. They also sculpt and shape certain areas of your face, giving contours to areas such as your nose, cheekbones, jawline and nose.
Another common area people use dermal fillers to target is their lips – they can help give more life to lips and rejuvenate them which enhances the rest of the face.
It is essential to have this treatment carried out by a professional who has a detailed understanding of your facial anatomy. DIY methods can leave irrevocable harm and not only leave you with damage in the area you’re looking to alter, but other areas of your face. If performed at home or by an under-qualified beauty therapist, Botox and fillers can expose you to an allergic reaction.
What does the treatment involve?
Dermal filler injections are a very straightforward procedure, taking only a few minutes to complete and patients can go home safely alone afterwards – it does not impair co-ordination as some cosmetic procedures do.
Fillers can last anywhere between 6 – 12 months depending on the area, though can be maintained with follow-up treatments.
Like many products, Botox (or Botulinum toxin injections), are prescription-only for a reason and beauty therapists do not have the necessary knowledge to guarantee that your treatment will give you the results you need or that it will be carried out safely. Like dermal fillers, Botox is also a non-surgical procedure that gives huge results – it’s also low-maintenance and (also as with fillers) you can leave the practice straight afterwards without a worry.
