Dermal Fillers: Your Questions Answered

23rd January 2020

Celebrities might have started the trend, but everyone’s getting them: dermal fillers. According to figures, beauty treatments, such as fillers, account for 9 out of 10 non-surgical treatments. But if you’re on the fence about getting them, or want to wise up ahead of treatment, we at Lumiere skin clinic, based in Manchester, can help.

What’s in dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to plump and lift skin. Hyaluronic acid is renowned for being a moisturising agent, and since aged skin can look dry and dull, it’s the perfect pep-me-up.

How are dermal fillers used?

The treatment involves injecting small quantities into targeted areas. The needle itself is extremely fine to help make the procedure as painless as possible.

How quickly will I see results?

You might be lucky enough to experience results straight away – but as there can be light bruising and swelling following the procedure, this can make it difficult to get a clear picture of how you’ll look, and you might need for this to pass before seeing ‘true’ results.

How long do results last?

The effects are non-permanent, so dermal fillers are ideal for those wanting to experiment a bit with beauty treatments – and they’re a good alternative for those looking to avoid surgery. Results vary, but can last up to 18 months.

Where can I use dermal fillers?

The face and neck are recommended areas. Because dermal fillers treat a whole range of things – from wrinkles to loss of volume – we’ll guide you on which areas to target during your pre-treatment consultation. Most people use dermal fillers on forehead lines or lines around the mouth, though they can also be used to plump the lips.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

It depends on how much you’ll need and how many areas you’re targeting. We price per syringe to give a clear indication of costing, and we’ll also refund the cost of your pre-treatment consultation if you decide to book in with us.

Who will carry out the treatment?
