Dermal fillers are a highly effective anti-ageing treatment used to restore lost volume to several areas of the face as well as to smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other common signs of ageing on the skin. Delivered in the form of injectables, dermal fillers have experienced a growth in popularity over the last decade as they present clients with a viable alternative to cosmetic surgery and promise less downtime than more traditional forms of aesthetics treatment, a lot of which tends to be needlessly invasive and tremendously time-consuming. Dermal fillers are created using naturally occurring enzymes, such as hyaluronic acid. For this reason, they are metabolized by your body over time. The speed of your metabolism will greatly affect how long your treatment results last.
In addition, cosmetic fillers tend to last longer in areas with less movement. Frequent movement can cause the material to break down faster and diminish the longevity of your results. In the past, dermal fillers have been criticised for leaving patients with an overblown or obviously altered appearance. Yet, thanks to advances in medical technology and evolving techniques, they are now well known for their facial-contouring properties and have been praised by patients and professionalisms alike for their ability to create a more natural look. Most people turn to dermal fillers to add some harmony and balance to their facial structure, with common areas of treatment including the chin, jawline, lips and tear troughs - deep creases notorious for developing under the eyes over time.
To maintain your treatment results, we recommend taking care of your skin and your overall health. There are several techniques for increasing the lifespan of dermal fillers.
The addition of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your filler treatment can enhance your body’s own collagen production. It also works to draw your body’s growth factors to the area to promote the health and longevity of your skin and treatment. Studies have shown the enhanced effectiveness of combo treatments of PRP with dermal fillers for enhanced longevity.
