4 facts about dermal filler injections

Like with any cosmetic treatment, it’s important to know the facts when considering dermal filler injections.

Dermal filler is a highly effective cosmetic injectable treatment. It’s ideal for enhancing, lifting, and contouring your face, helping you to achieve a naturally refreshed and revitalised look.  

The treatment is quick, practically painless and delivers instant results. Results also last between six to 18 months depending on the style of dermal filler used and the treatment area. Because of this, it’s one of our most popular cosmetic injectable treatments.  

Here are four surprising and interesting dermal filler facts: 

1. Some are a natural enhancers

Dermal fillers can be made up of collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) which are both substances that occur naturally in the body. They work to help keep the skin plump and youthful looking. Most of the natural enhancing products are safe and most are suitable for a wider range of clients. Other dermal fillers on the market are synthetic. This in effect means you are injecting foreign substances into your body which can often result in negative side effects.  

2. They are increasingly being used by men

The use of dermal fillers used by men is on the rise as they are turning to the product to achieve a chiselled and refreshed look. Often men are worried about looking tired and ageing, so dermal fillers are the perfect treatment to restore a youthful appearance.  

 3. Where they’re injected will change as you age

As ageing occurs, so does your skin and its structure. This directly effects where dermal filler products will be injected. Ageing results in the face structure starting a downward and inward decent. Fat pads will drop, and our appearance can often become sunken due to the lack of collagen production which aids elasticity. Areas such as temples and tear troughs can help to restore volume which has been lost over time.   

 4. They don’t just fill, they stimulate new collagen production

When you age, your body’s collagen production slows down which results in skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles. Some dermal filler, when injected, can stimulate new collagen fibres within the skin to further enhance your youthful appearance.  

At Artisan, our collagen rebuild injections are the epitome of naturally turning back the clock. They encourage your body to gradually rebuild its own collagen that has been lost over time. A type of dermal filler, collagen rebuild injections contain poly-L-lactic acid, rather than hyaluronic acid. This is a safe to use substance that is naturally broken down by the body over time.  

They differ from hyaluronic acid dermal fillers by encouraging the body to rebuild its own collagen, rather than temporarily restoring lost volume, delivering a less rapid but more enduring result. Visible results emerge discreetly and can last for more than two years, gradually giving you a more youthful looking appearance without making you look like you’ve ‘had work done’.
