The safety of dermal fillers

It is understandable that clients would be concerned about the safety of dermal fillers. We are paying increasing attention to what we eat, drink, and use on our skin, so why would we not pay attention to what we put into our skin too? There still seems to be a lot of mystery surrounding dermal fillers, and a lot of unanswered questions. Are dermal fillers safe? What are they made of? We will answer all of your questions so that you feel informed before you book your appointment. Let’s explore the safety of dermal fillers!


What are dermal fillers made of?

Dermal fillers are a gel substance that is injected beneath your skin to produce contour, structure, and volume. The filler itself uses a natural sugar found in your skin called hyaluronic acid. This acid is essential to your skin’s bounce and firmness, which is why dermal fillers are so effective at introducing volume. Because this sugar occurs naturally within the body, your skin accepts the dermal filler readily. They are very safe to use for enhancing soft tissues in the face because they are compatible with your skin, delivering effective results safely.


Are dermal fillers permanent?

Dermal fillers are a temporary treatment, with results lasting for up to 18 months. Because they contain a natural sugar, they are easily broken down the body and dissolved. You will not notice or feel this process happening until you begin to see your results returning to normal. One of the benefits of dermal fillers being temporary is that if you don’t wish to undergo further treatments, you just simply wait for the hyaluronic acid to naturally dissolve within your skin. Because they are temporary, you can even dissolve them with a second injectable treatment if you wish. If you would like to lessen your results or reverse them completely, this second injection speeds up the body’s dissolving processes. The breakdown that would usually take months should only take a day or two in this case. Again, this second treatment is very safe.


Who should perform my treatment?

You should always seek a medical professional to perform your treatments with dermal filler. Medical professionals, such as doctors and surgeons, understand the human anatomy and areas of the face better than anyone else. They fully appreciate the treatment, the treatment area, and your own needs. You will receive safe and satisfactory treatment with medical professionals, and they are also trained in managing any side effects and complications. Don’t compromise on your treatments, always find a professional you trust and that makes you feel comfortable and confident! You should seek someone who fills you with confidence, answers all of your questions, and provides advice after treatment to best maximise your results.
