What are wrinkle fillers?
Wrinkle fillers are small injections of gel which restore volume to problem areas and smooth out the skin. They are most commonly made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a chemical already found naturally occurring in the human body. This gentle product works its magic by holding the water In and therefore plumping up the skin.
What can wrinkle fillers be used for?
Wrinkle fillers are most commonly used to plump up the skin. They can also be used to provide contour and definition or to fix asymmetrical features. Wrinkle fillers can be used in many places on the face. This includes the forehead, the lips, the neck, the chin.
How long do wrinkle fillers last?
The time period that wrinkles last varies from person to person. It can range anywhere between 6 and 18 months. By 18 months the filler will have completely dissolved into your skin. Some people top up their filler before this time to build up a certain feature.
How quickly do results become noticeable?
Results from wrinkle fillers treatment are obvious immediately after the procedure. Although there may be some swelling immediately after receiving the treatment, this will die down and you will be able to see the effect.
Can I reverse the procedure?
Many people are surprised to hear that Dr Darren McKeown can actually reverse the effect that hyaluronic acid has. If you don’t like the result within 24 to 48 hours, the filler can be dissolved using an enzyme product.
Will getting wrinkle fillers hurt?
Getting wrinkle fillers should not hurt. It is about as sore as getting any injections. A local anaesthetic is also applied to the area to try and reduce discomfort. In the period after the procedure, you should not feel any pain. The most you should be effected is by some bruising or slight swelling.
