What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers at the dentist in Chester are a cosmetic procedure designed to smooth and eliminate aging features. At Future Health Partnership practices we use this injectable filler on facial lines and wrinkles. This leaves a patient with a fresh, young and youthful appearance which is the core aim of this procedure. Typically, fillers consist of hyaluronic acid which is a natural component that is produced by the body. Therefore, when this filler is injected there is less likely chance of getting an allergic reaction as the filler is not foreign to the body intake. The hyaluronic acid gels are usually and are made from non-animal sources. Throughout the years the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid usually disappears which ultimately leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, the dermal filler at the dentist in Chester replaces more hyaluronic acid to smooth the skin’s texture. Fillers are not only designed to treat the facial area but it can also be used for lip enhancement. Other areas such as the hand and neck contours can also be treated. If you are considering undergoing a dermal filler treatment, do not hesitate to book an appointment at the dentist in Chester.dentist-in-chester

Benefits of the dermal filler treatment

Dermal filler treatment is a great option to bring back the skin’s elasticity as well as producing a youthful finish. However, there are many more life benefits that follow with this cosmetic procedure.

Immediate results post procedure

One of the most common benefits that come with undergoing a dermal filler treatment is that it provides immediate results. After the dermal filler injection is placed into the problem areas you will gradually notice a huge difference on the skin.

Therefore, recovery time of the treatment is not an issue for patients and alongside this the treatment can approximately take only 10 minutes. For other cosmetic procedures like plastic surgery there is a longer recovery period. After the treatment is done an individual is free to work and continue their day to day lives without having to worry about recovery. However, with every cosmetic treatment there can be potential side effects which you may experience. These side effects tend to be less severe and not something that will need immediate medical attention. The usual and most common and minimal side effects are swelling or redness. This usually occurs near the treated area. However, these common side effects gradually disappear within several hours or even in some cases a day. With this treatment you are able to use makeup products post procedure to cover any side effects.

To avoid these side-effects our staff at Future Health Partnership Practices will ensure that we provide our patients with the appropriate instructions prior to treatment. We will also provide post procedure instructions to reduce the risk of any infection

Long lasting results

Another major benefit from receiving dermal filler is the long lasting results this treatment provides. This treatment has the ability to last for approximately a year which means an individual will feel and look young. It is highly advised that an individual undergoes 4-6 touch ups after the first appointment. This will help maintain the results and create a long term finish.
