Dermal Fillers Manchester – What Are They And How Do They Work 2

First of all, what exactly are they?

Dermal fillers are a harmless synthetic or naturally-derived material that is injected directly under the surface of the skin. Their purpose is to plump up the area sufficiently so that the depression, wrinkle, or fold disappears. It can be used on the lips to create a more defined and voluptuous mouth, or on the cheeks to define a better shape. It can also be used to even out indented scars caused by acne or chicken pox, or to fill out depressions under the eye area. Effects generally last anywhere between 6 months and 2 years depending upon the type of filler. However some modern permanent fillers can now last 5 years and some even more than that.

Dermal fillers shouldn’t be confused with Botox. Manchester patients for example may need both Botox and dermal fillers to enhance their facial aesthetics. So what’s the difference? Unlike dermal fillers Botox relaxes the muscles to prevent certain movements that result in wrinkles. Primarily Botox is used on the so called movement lines which are noticeable when we create an expression. These include areas around the forehead and eyes. Alternatively dermal fillers are used to plump up or fill static creases and crevices that are ever present. When used in conjunction with one another, the combination can produce a remarkably youthful look.

Naturally-derived vs synthetic fillers

There are two primary types of dermal fillers in Manchester. Those which contain hyaluronic acid and those which contain synthetic fillers. HA (a type of carbohydrate) is found naturally in the body and is used to hydrate your eyes and lubricate joints to prevent frictional force. When injected under the skin it plumps up the area. Because HA dermal fillers are natural they propose far less risk of an allergic reaction. However on the down side they tend to break down after 6-18 months and the area needs to be redone.

Conversely synthetic fillers are usually made in a laboratory and because they can’t dissipate, they can last for many years. That said because they’re permanent, any problems associated with them, no matter how rare, might also be permanent and far harder to correct.

In the right hands dermal fillers Manchester used in conjunction with Botox Manchester are a fast and efficient way to achieve great facial aesthetics. To find out more, talk to Dr Shi Karim and the team at Cheadle Facial Aesthetics and take the first steps towards a youthful look.
