If you’re looking for a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that will smooth out the effects of premature aging, then dermal fillers could be the answer. Dermal filler is a substance which is injected into the skin to plump it up, make it firmer and smooth out lines and wrinkles.
During the procedure, dermal fillers are injected, usually without the need for local anesthetic, into those fine lines and wrinkles to plump them out. The dermal filler then remains in the skin, where it binds water to produce a lift and give firmness to the treated area.
A dermal filler treatment usually takes around 30 minutes. Typically, the results of dermal fillers can last six to nine months but this varies from one person to another. The filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles or lips will ultimately return to their previous appearance without top up treatments.
There are now some semi permanent or even permanent dermal fillers which produce long lasting results. However, at Allure medspa, we tend to avoid using permanent dermal fillers because some patients may develop an allergy to the product which cannot be removed. There are, however, safe products which will last between 12–18 months.
