Dermal fillers are an incredibly popular treatment that can be used to augment your facial features and soft tissues in the face such as your cheeks and lips. With many people growing ever curious about dermal fillers, more and more questions are being asked about them. Of course, we are all aware of their capabilities and the results they can achieve, but if you’re just starting your dermal filler journey, you may have several questions you’d like to address or simply where you can have dermal fillers done in Devon.
What are dermal fillers made of?
With endless possibilities for body augmentation in recent times, it’s natural to be very conscious of what we put into our bodies and onto our skin. Dermal fillers are an injectable gel that contain a substance called hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin and body. This ensures that your dermal fillers are compatible with your skin after some minor side effects and therefore naturally biodegrade over time.
Are they permanent?
No, the injectable dermal fillers used here at James Willis Faces and by all reputable aesthetic clinics use temporary dermal fillers. Temporary dermal fillers have unfairly seen their reputation come in to negative spotlights over the years because of the results permanent dermal fillers has caused which can compromise your safety. This is because temporary dermal fillers are simply a biodegradable gel that can be dissolved if needed, and their results can be built upon. However permanent dermal fillers, on the other hand, use materials like silicon that come accompanied with complications and risks. They also will need to be removed if you no longer wish to keep your results, making then very unpredictable.
Who can perform dermal fillers?
As it stands currently in the UK, you do not need to be a medical or prescribing professional to perform dermal fillers. This basically means anyone can perform the dermal filler treatment and just because anybody legally can, it does not mean that legally anybody should. The rise of ‘Botox parties’ and even tutorials on the web being carried out by non-medical professionals, such as hairdressers and beauticians, is very dangerous. Only qualifies medical professionals who are also trained in aesthetics should really be performing your dermal filler treatments, because the understand your facial anatomy and skin better than anyone else. Compromising your results is one thing, but compromising your safety is something that you should not take lightly because if any complications arise then your untrained injector will potentially not recognise them or know how to manage them.
Dermal fillers are helping many people to enhance their natural beauty in their own unique ways, but it’s paramount that these treatments are kept as safe as possible and under medical professional supervision.
