How do Dermal Fillers Work?


With a constant flow of picture-perfect models and celebrities on our social media feeds, it’s hardly surprising that non-surgical cosmetic treatments have seen an uptick in recent years. In the UK, the cosmetic surgery industry is worth more than £3.6 Billion, with young adults making up much of the consumer base. 



Although most people have heard of Botox treatment, significantly less know what dermal fillers are, despite their increasing popularity. It’s a common misconception that Botox injections bloat beneath the skin, when in reality it’s dermal fillers that do this.

Dermal fillers add volume to the skin, leading to less defined fine lines and wrinkles, and thus creating a more youthful appearance. The most common areas for treatment are the lips, the nose/mouth lines and the area between the eyebrows. When done professionally, dermal filler treatment can give off a natural look, enhancing your best features. But how do dermal fillers actually work?

Derma fillers are substances injected into your face, most of which contain a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid. This acid is designed to fill spaces of volume loss, as well as replenishing your skin’s moisture by attracting water to it. In most cases, the hyaluronic acid also encourages collagen and elastin production in your skin, improving its quality and ensuring a youthful appearance. However, after 6 to 9 months, the fillers are naturally broken down by the body, causing the effects to fade away. Therefore, you’ll need to have annual or biannual injections to maintain that good look.

Hyaluronic acid can also be used in cream form in order to moisturize the skin. It is, however, unable to plump up the skin unless injected. It is also said that dermal fillers can help prevent skin from aging in the future, a fact that is causing more young people to consider treatment. It is important to realize, however, that hyaluronic acid is not the only type of dermal filler, with other options (with different effects) being available - make sure you do some research into other fillers before you take them.

Overall, the changes that result from dermal filler treatment should be subtle and natural-looking. People are likely to comment on how well you’re looking, but it is unlikely for them to realize that you have undergone treatment. At least, that is the case if you get your treatment done at a place that knows what they’re doing. If you are looking for Dermal Fillers, we found Springwell Clinic in Marlow who offers this treatment and they come highly rated on Google reviews.

However, if you’re not satisfied with the results that the dermal filler has given you, there is no need to panic. One of the best things about dermal fillers is that an enzyme can be injected which can dissolve the hyaluronic acid, removing the effect altogether. If you think that the effect is too great, you can ask the dermatologist to inject an additional filler in order to reduce it.
