Dermal Fillers Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face and plump up the tissues to restore volume lost through aging. Dermal fillers can improve facial features and help improve problems such as:

  • Thin lips
  • Wrinkles and creases
  • Recessed scars
  • Lack of contouring or contouring deformities
  • Shadows under the eyes

Dermal fillers are highly effective at disguising the early signs of aging and helping to rejuvenate the face without the need for open surgery. For some patients the use of dermal fillers can delay the requirement for cosmetic surgery for many years, providing they maintain a regular course of treatment.

What is the most effective kind of dermal filler?

There are several types of dermal fillers available, but Dr. Walker uses Restylane for his clients at Best Plastic Surgery Practice, as he finds it produces excellent results. The active ingredient in Restylane is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in connective tissues and skin, but that your body produces less of as you age.

Restylane is effective in a wide range of applications, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Acne scarring
  • Cheek depressions
  • Nasolabial furrows (deep lines either side of the nose)
  • Frown lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Burn scarring
  • Laughter lines
  • Smoker's lines
  • Scarring from wounds
  • Worry lines

Restylane can add volume to sunken or hollowed cheeks, a common result of the aging process. It can also redefine the lip line and add volume to your lips.

How soon will I see the results of treatment with a dermal filler?

You’ll be able to see the difference straight after your treatment session. The length of time the treatment lasts depends on your skin and the type of Restylane dermal filler used, but they can last for months or even years in some cases.

You can help maintain the effects for longer by leading a healthy lifestyle and eating a balanced diet, so your skin is well nourished. Using recommended skin care products also helps enhance the results and make sure they last as long as possible.
