Dermal fillers – a natural way to youthful-looking skin

Looking to rejuvenate your skin but don’t want to go through with the unpredictability of cosmetic surgery? Dermal fillers are a non-invasive solution that produce instant results…

Dermal fillers are made from a naturally-occurring substance within the body known as hyaluronic acid. When you are young, your skin possesses high levels of hyaluronic acid which is what gives it a youthful-looking appearance. As you age, the levels begin to deplete which causes wrinkles and hollow areas around the face – this generally begins to occur gradually in your late 20s though for some this can be later or slightly earlier.

Are there other factors that cause a drop in hyaluronic acid?

Other factors include:

  • Sun exposure.
  • Frequent use of sun beds.
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol throughout your lifetime.
  • Air pollution.
  • Smoking.
  • Stress.

A little bit more about the procedure….

Your cosmetic dentist here at Cliftonville will use a very fine needle to apply the hyaluronic acid to the areas you are looking to target. Common areas include crow’s feet, wrinkles around the nose, forehead, mouth, chin and underneath the bottom lip.

Dermal fillers can last up to 9 months but will last longer if you have had subsequent treatments following your first time.

Unlike with cosmetic surgery there is no recovery period and you can resume daily activities as soon as your leave the practice here in Northampton.

You may experience some swelling and possibly some mild bruising thought this will subside within 4 hours.

Why it’s essential to choose a medical professional for dermal fillers…

Patients should seek to have this procedure performed in a clinical environment, as services offered by beauty therapists can cause permanently damage due to these individuals’ lack of understanding of the medical side of the treatment. Our staff here in Northampton have had training in proper injection techniques and therefore have an in-depth understanding of facial dynamics, also acquired through their dental work.
