About Dermal Fillers

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections of a specialised solution into the skin to restore facial volume including plumping the cheeks and reducing shallow or deep lines in the skin. They are often used in combination with muscle relaxant injections to give the overall refreshed appearance.
Comprehensive studies support dermal fillers safety and effectiveness. Dermal Fillers has been used in over 10 million treatments worldwide during the last twelve years.

How long do they last?

Dermal Fillers are ideally temporary in nature. They used to create an enhanced and smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed and broken down by the body. The effects can last 6 – 18 months depending on the area of treatment, the health of the skin, the client’s metabolism, and the type of filler used.

Gradually over a period of time your body will break down the dermal filler. This isn’t dangerous, and your skin will return to its normal state. Your skin may even show reduced signs of wrinkles compared to before the procedure as a result of the dermal fillers stimulating collagen production.
If for some reason you don’t like your dermal fillers, or you change your mind, they can easily be removed by a simple injecting procedure by our specialist doctor.

We do not perform permanent dermal fillers at Victorias Cosmetic Medical Clinic. Permanent fillers do not break down, which means they could be there for life unless they are surgically removed. As the skin ages around the permanent filler, it can create an undesired look.

How young is too young for Dermal Fillers?

The use of fillers started in the late 1990’s with fillers only being used for the fine lines developing on the upper lip or cheeks when we were somewhere in our forties.
Now we have a much younger clientele wishing to enhance their appearance and using fillers as a preventative of permanent lines in the future.
