Dermal fillers at Evolve Dentistry, Portishead
What do dermal fillers do to your face?
Dermal injections can re-plump the facial skin, restoring lost volume and improving visible skin texture, resulting in a fresher more youthful appearance by softening lines, wrinkles and creases in virtually any part of the face.
Where are fillers used in your face?
Nose-to-mouth and marionette lines (which extend from either side of the mouth) as well as smokers’ creases around the lips can all be decreased and smoothed. Injections can also be used to enhance the shape and definition of the lips, cheeks or chin.
What are dermal fillers made of?
Here at Evolve, we have chosen to use hyaluronic acid-based products, such as Restylane and Teoxane, as they are not only the safest to use but have the additional benefit of typically being able to achieve the desired result in a single treatment.
What are the benefits of dermal fillers?
The benefit of hyaluronic-acid based injections is that they contain natural, biodegradable ingredients, meaning they are not permanent and will eventually be naturally broken down rather then remaining in the body. Moreover, the incredible hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid offer further restorative benefits which can improve both the appearance and texture of the skin over time through follow-up treatments.
Does treatment hurt?
For most areas to be treated, we will use a numbing cream – applying it 30 to 40 minutes prior to your appointment – so you will be comfortable throughout your treatment. However, when treating the especially sensitive lip area, to ensure the procedure is pain-free, we use dental block, just like you would have for a filling. This is the added bonus of having a qualified dentist to carry out your lip enhancement.
How long does it take for face fillers to work?
You will see visible results immediately although these will typically be only 80% of the final result, which will usually be seen in the 2 weeks following your treatment. This slight delay is down to hyaluronic acid’s impressive ability to attract 1000 times its own volume in moisture, meaning it continues to help to further plump, smooth and hydrate the skin over time.
How long do results last?
Results will typically last between 6 and 12 months, although much depends on the treated area and on the particular product used.
