No matter what age or gender we are, when it comes to our appearance it is safe to say that we’re all in the pursuit of perfection. We only have to watch the news, read a magazine or watch a TV show to see the countless celebrities of all ages showcasing a seemingly perfect appearance to make us feel a bit self-critical.
It’s important to remember that these celebrities are all real people with the same hang-ups as the rest of us. Many of them will have undergone non-surgical procedures such as Botox® and dermal fillers, and quite possibly more surgical procedures, too. The truth is, we can all do something about changing our appearance to improve our self-confidence and these days, non-surgical procedures are extremely commonplace and are not just reserved for those with high bank balances or celebrity status.
Dermal fillers are especially common and they’re gaining popularity every day, so we’ve put together this handy guide to explain how dermal fillers work.
What are dermal fillers and which areas of the body can they treat?
Dermal fillers involve undergoing a few small injections to create smoother and younger skin. As you get older, collagen in your skin can start to break down and this is what causes it to flatten and sag. Dermal fillers are designed to replace the collagen that has broken down over time to restore your youthful glow.
In terms of which areas can be treated, dermal fillers can be used for a variety of purposes such as treating lines around the mouth, facial scars and lines from the nose to mouth. However, two of the most commonly treated areas are the cheeks and the lips.
How can dermal fillers improve the appearance in your cheeks?
When it comes to dermal filler injections, cheeks are by far one of the most popular areas to treat amongst our patients. Your cheeks frame and shape your face and as you age they can start to lack definition. Cheek augmentations using dermal fillers are a fantastic way of giving your face a more youthful and defined shape. If you’re interested in finding out more about dermal fillers for your cheek area, just contact our friendly team and they will be able to give you more information.
How can you give your lips a youthful boost using dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers for lips are very popular. As you start to age, your lips can thin out over time which can add a few years to your appearance. However, lip fillers are not just restricted to men and women of a certain age, younger patients also opt for lip fillers in order to create a more glamorous pout. Whatever your age or gender, dermal fillers are a really affordable way of creating more definition around your lip area.
How much do filler injections for lips cost?
Here at Look Lovely London, our prices are very reasonable. Our fees for dermal fillers are based on the amount of filler used on the area in question. However, to give you an idea of cost, for 1 syringe of filler our prices start at £280. If you’re new to dermal fillers, we also offer an introductory price of £250 for 1 syringe of filler for any first timers.
What will happen in your appointment at Look Lovely London?
Following a consultation with our experienced team of doctors in which you will have the opportunity to ask any questions, we then get to work! You’ll have a few small injections which will be carefully administered. You might feel mild discomfort when the needle is placed in the skin but we offer ice packs and numbing cream to any patients who are particularly sensitive to pain.
You’ll see the results pretty much straight away and you’ll leave the clinic feeling like a new person! However, the full results from filler injections for the face will be seen after about ten days. Results last between 6-12 months, after which time you may well decide to return for further treatment.
