Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Dermal Fillers

What are dermal fillers, and how do they work?

Dermal fillers are injectable substances, typically containing hyaluronic acid, that are used to restore volume, reduce wrinkles, and enhance facial features. They work by adding volume to the targeted area, promoting a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Yes, dermal fillers are generally safe when administered by trained and experienced medical practitioners. At The Aesthetics Doctor, we use high-quality fillers and follow strict safety protocols to ensure the well-being of our patients.

How long do dermal filler results last?

The duration of results varies depending on the type of filler used and individual factors. On average, results can last from six months to two years. Our clinic offers semi-permanent dermal fillers for longer-lasting effects.

What areas can be treated with dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers can be used to address various areas, including cheeks, lips, tear troughs, nose to mouth lines, marionette lines, and chin. Our experienced medical practitioners will customise a treatment plan based on your specific concerns.

Is the dermal filler treatment painful?

Discomfort is minimal during the procedure. We use topical anaesthetics and grade filler solutions to ensure a comfortable experience. Any post-treatment discomfort is typically mild and temporary.

How long does a dermal filler treatment session take?

The duration of a session depends on the areas being treated and the complexity of the procedure. Generally, a treatment session can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

Are there any side effects of dermal fillers?

Common side effects include redness, swelling, and bruising, which are usually mild and temporary. Serious side effects are rare when administered by qualified practitioners. We provide post-treatment care guidelines to minimise any potential side effects.

Can dermal fillers be used in combination with other treatments?

Yes, dermal fillers can be combined with other cosmetic treatments for a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the best combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.

How soon can I see the results of my dermal filler treatment?

Results are often visible immediately, although there may be some initial swelling. As any swelling subsides, the full effects of the treatment become more apparent, typically within a few days.

Is there downtime after a dermal filler treatment?

Dermal filler treatments usually involve minimal downtime. Patients can resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure. However, it's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24-48 hours.
