Dermal Fillers Manchester: A Guide

by on May 21, 2018 | Posted in blog

One of the most popular treatments we offer here at Cheadle Facial Aesthetics is cosmetic dermal fillers.  But what are dermal fillers Manchester, and what areas can they be used to treat?

What are dermal fillers?

At around the age of 25, our body stops producing collagen and elastin, and these are the two compounds within our body which keep the skin elastic and the tissue underneath it nice and firm. Our skin therefore becomes not only drier and thinner, but lines and wrinkles also start to appear.

Dermal fillers are a substance (usually a naturally occurring acid) which is injected into the face in order to correct such facial imperfections which are caused by aging, and they can also be used to enhance your existing beauty, similarly to botox Manchester,  by being injected into your cheeks, lips and chin.

What areas can be treated with dermal fillers?

  • Acne scars
  • Cheeks
  • Crow’s feet (at the corner of the eye)
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines (between your eyebrows)
  • Hands
  • Lips
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Nasolabial lines (from the corner of your mouth to the chin)

What does the treatment involve?

The dermal filler treatment usually takes between 35 and 45 minutes and consists of a series of small injections in certain places on the face. As with any treatment which involves injections there may be some slight swelling or bruising afterwards, but this should soon go down. In the meantime, you should be able to cover it with make-up.

How long do dermal fillers last?

It varies according to the type of filler used and how your body reacts to it, but they usually last somewhere between 6 to 12 months.

What type of filler should I use?

There are many different types of dermal filler available, and we will advise you of the best one for you once we have discussed with you the effect you want to create on your face, your existing appearance and your skin.  All the dermal fillers we use are made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally occurring, non-animal and fully biodegradable.

Who is this treatment best for?

Facial fillers like this are used on a variety of people’s faces, and they tend to be focused on reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles We have had some clients who have a high impact lifestyle, such as those who run a lot, and they like the way that the fillers add volume back to their face.

If you’re in need of facial aesthetics enhancement, particularly dermal fillers, Manchester-based Church Road dental has it covered. We offer a wide range of treatment including lip augmentation, brow lifts, and wrinkle reduction using Botox. Manchester patients can rest assured that when they choose us, they’re in safe and secure hands. As dermal fillers are one of the most popular treatments, it’s worth taking a closer look at what they are and how they work. So without further ado, let’s dive straight in…

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.

Unlike Botox which aims to reduce or eradicate facial expression or movement lines, dermal fillers treat the static facial lines formed during the natural ageing process. When facial fillers are used in conjunction with Botox, the results can produce a remarkably younger-looking face. Cosmetic fillers are easy to apply, are fast acting, and have the ability to plump up the area to the point where a fold, depression, or wrinkle disappears. If you’re looking to banish the signs of facial ageing fast, then you’re in safe and capable hands at Church Road Dental and Cosmetics.

How Do Dermal Fillers In Manchester Work?

As skin ages it loses the natural collagen that helps to support and shape our facial features. The result is deepened lines and wrinkles. In addition exposure to the sun, air pollution, smoking, and even stress can all be major contributing factors of early ageing. Dermal fillers work by replacing the lost collagen, thus making the skin tighter and filling out any tell-tale deep lines and wrinkles. By reversing the natural ageing process this quick procedure gives the patient an instantly younger appearance, which in turn helps to boost confidence.

In the comfort of our modern practice our expert technician will inject tiny amounts of hyaluronic gel underneath the skin. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a substance found naturally in the body – particularly the skin tissue. When injected into the facial area it can help to:

  • Plump and shape the lips
  • Eradicate deep folds between the nose and mouth
  • Augment the checks to highlight their shaping
  • Fill depression areas – particularly around the eye sockets
  • Remove indented scars such as chicken pox or acne


There are a wide variety of  Hyaluronic dermal fillers in use including products such as Juvederm, Prevelle Silk, Elevesse, and Restylane. All of these are safe to use and are similar in that they contain a form of biodegradable, non-animal stabilised hyaluronic acid.

The process of cosmetic fillers takes around 30 minutes to complete and unlike Botox which only lasts a few months, results can last anywhere between 6 months and 2 years depending upon where it’s applied. Because our practice is well situated, if you’re looking for dermal fillers in Stockport or dermal fillers Wilmslow, it’s good to know that we’re only minutes away.

Dermal fillers really can banish wrinkles and static lines and provide a super-fast, non-surgical solution to the ageing problem. To find out more about facial fillers or if you’d like to book an appointment, then contact us on 0161 486 0743 today.
