Dermal Fillers Frequently Asked Questions

Dermal Fillers FAQs

What are dermal fillers?
We use a range of approved, premium dermal fillers and can be used by a qualified and trained practitioner as an effective treatment for deep lines and wrinkles. They can help reduce deep lines and wrinkles, fill hollows and smooth the contours of your face. Anti-ageing facial fillers are the non-surgical way to achieve younger looking skin and provide volume for tired lines and wrinkles.

As your skin ages, it loses the collagen that helps shape and support it. Natural lines and wrinkles deepen. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution, weight loss and even stress can all age your appearance. The face can also begin to lose volume giving sunken cheeks & temples and a ‘dragged down’ appearance.

How do they work?
We use a range of premium dermal filler products that can help you achieve the desired result. It will depend on the area being treated as to which product our qualified practitioner would recommend as the most suitable.

Facial fillers can plump up your skin, smooth wrinkles and fill out deep lines by replacing the collagen lost due to natural ageing or skin damage.

Premium dermal fillers are injected in small controlled doses just under the surface of skin of the area to be treated. This fills out the sunken areas and lines to give a smoother, firmer and more refreshed appearance. Depending on the type of dermal filler used, results can last from 6 to 24 months.

What is it really?
Small amounts of dermal filler are injected directly into the skin using an ultra-fine needle. After cleansing the area to be treated, a numbing cream or dental block will be applied. This ensures the injections administered by the qualified doctor or nurse will only cause minor discomfort.

The gel administered helps to plump up the skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles. If the lips or facial contours are being treated, the filler adds volume, restores shape and gives a fuller, fresher appearance.

Dermal filler treatments at City Aesthetics Chester are only carried out by fully qualified doctors and nurses.

What happens after the treatment?
Afterwards, there might be a small amount of swelling which will quickly subside. Depending on the area treated, it usually takes no longer than 30 minutes and you can leave the clinic as soon as you are ready to do so.

Minimal recovery time is required after dermal filler treatment and you can return to normal activities straight away. You may experience some slight swelling or bruising to the area being injected and typically doesn’t last longer than 48 hours. Your aesthetician will discuss your recovery and what to expect when you attend your appointment.

How much difference will it make?
Facial fillers plump up your skin, smooth wrinkles and fill out deep lines by replacing the volume lost due to natural ageing or skin damage. They’re also used to add volume to cheeks and lips and you’ll experience a fuller, more supple appearance in the areas treated.
