3 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Dermal Fillers
Hello, it’s Helen and today I wanted to talk to you about fillers. I think fillers are great because today they give a look that’s natural and make a great addition to the ‘tool kit’ in the war on anti ageing. Here are three things about fillers that you most likely don’t know.
Did you know that…
1. Dermal fillers stimulate collagen production
This means that your skin looks fab, even when the fillers start to dissolve (which they do naturally over a period of time). Your body produces collagen as a reaction to the filler material being added into your skin, and many people often find that even when their fillers have dissolved, the areas that they have had treated look better than they did before they had fillers.
This production of collagen can mean that the longer that someone continues to have fillers, the less they feel they need at each sitting, and the time between top ups may then vary greatly.
2. Dermal fillers can be made using your own blood plasma
Here at the Helen Taylor Clinic we use something called Biofil. It’s a very exciting development in the field of dermal fillers, because it takes a sample of your own blood, and uses the plasma extracted from that, to use as the ‘filler material’. This means that you are simply replacing lost volume with something that was already in you.
Biofil is totally natural, and great for Vegans. The results given are extremely natural looking and I’d say that the results from Biofil seem to last longer than regular Hyaluronic Acid based fillers.
3. Dermal fillers can be tailored to suit your needs
Gone are the days where fillers would give you that ‘pillow face’ look that the media often talk about. Today’s fillers are made of natural substances, Hyaluronic Acid for one , that our body produces but we lose as we age.
I like to see a client and address their individual needs before prescribing fillers, because this means that we can assess exactly where they are needed in order to get the best result. For example, you may come to see me wanting ‘tear trough fillers’, but I recommend some under the eye area, and some in the cheek area to support this.
As your face ‘sags’ and ages, fillers can be used to ‘support’ your skin’s structure and so a little here and a little there, is often the best approach when it comes to fillers.
My aim is to always leave you feeling like YOU again, and we work our way up together, building the volume as we go, as this means that YOU are in control of the look that you are going for.
So, there you have it, in conclusion I would say that…
Fillers are a great anti ageing habit to develop when the time is right for you because when done correctly, and if started at the right time, they will preserve your skin’s structure and foundation – having little but often ‘tweakments’ with fillers can mean that you remain looking and feeling like YOU for much longer.
And why not book a free consultation so that I can assess your own needs and we can talk about where would be best for you to start with fillers. Or anything else for that matter!
