Filling in the Gaps
Fillers are common in the UK, which means many people think they know all there is to know about them. Many people start their journey with fillers by looking at what they want instead of what they already have.
At Define Clinic, we’re about helping people reach an informed and educated decision before carrying out any treatment. Filling in your knowledge gaps will help you navigate the bigger picture and make your mind up on whether to get fillers.
Fillers aren’t one size fits all. You need to be familiar with your face’s features and structure to make the right decision. People might turn to fillers because of things like drooping, saggy skin or lines and wrinkles. But what causes those things?
First, the bones of your face reduce in size over time, this leads to a lack of support for your skin structure and muscles, and the result is droopy skin. Secondly, we lose ‘good fat’ in our face as we get older too. Things like childbirth can have a significant impact on this and be in your mid to late 30s. This loss of ‘good fat’ can result in nasolabial folds and marionettes. Lastly, when your skin ages, it gets thinner. This naturally exaggerates wrinkles and folds.
What Do Dermal Fillers Do?
Over time our skin loses elasticity, volume and structure. So, dermal fillers contribute to the restoration of those things. We can use them to replace the volume that was once there naturally in the form of ‘good fat’ or bone. We can then use it to improve the folds that appear, addressing any shadows and wrinkles on your face.
Using Dermal Fillers
Anyone injecting dermal fillers needs to pay close attention to what they’re doing. It takes care, precision and just the right amount of filler to improve the lost volume and folds subtly.
At Define Clinic, we work by the philosophy that no one should know you’ve had work done. This way of working is cautiously imposed by Dr Dhillon, who is an expert on filler treatments. For our staff to perform such a delicate task, using their skills and experience, they are required to carefully assess the situation to ensure the correct amount of filler is used. Not only this, but it’s essential to get fillers in the right place for optimal results.
What Are Fillers?
Dr Benji and his team use dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid, a natural component of your body and skin. That means that there’s less chance of reaction or rejection from your body. Another benefit of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is that they’re completely reversible.
Your stunning results can last anywhere between 9-18 months, depending on your treatment. We see patients leaving our clinic with their heads held high and a new lease of life and confidence thanks to our skilled team’s dermal filler treatment.
