Dermal Fillers – An Answer To The Effects Of Ageing?

Dermal fillers treatment in Chelmsford – look forward to younger looking skin!

Most people have probably heard of Botox by now, and indeed, many of our Chelmsford facial aesthetics patients have enjoyed this procedure with good effect, reducing the wrinkles on their skin.

In today’s blog, we take a look at a slightly less well known treatment that can also help to give you younger looking skin.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are widely used in cosmetic facial treatments and are an excellent way of restoring skin that has become wrinkled or folded, or to fill out areas such as the cheeks and lips which tend to sink and thin as we become older. This happens because the collagen, which naturally fills these areas out, becomes lost with age and can’t be replaced naturally.

The fillers themselves can be made from a number of materials, depending on the type of treatment to take place. These are safe and well tested and you should not concern yourself with any negative publicity you may have seen of procedures that have gone wrong. The facial aesthetics team at Blue Sky Dental of Chelmsford are fully trained and experienced and will discuss outcomes with you before the procedure takes place. We reserve the right to refuse to treat anyone who is seeking an extreme, or potentially risky form of cosmetic treatment.

We will also discuss your general health and check for any potential reasons why dermal fillers may not be suitable for you.

Cosmetic facial areas

Dermal fillers can be used to correct a number of the challenges of ageing, including

  • Nasal labial folds – the lines that run from nose to mouth
  • Marionette lines – the lines that run from chin to mouth
  • Forehead and frown lines
  • Sunken cheeks – Dermal fillers can be used to add volume
  • Thinning lips – Dermal Fillers can be used to ‘plump up’ the lips

In all cases, dermal fillers are applied by using a very fine needle to inject them into the appropriate areas.  This should not be painful, though you may feel a little pricking sensation as the needle enters the skin. It is possible that you might experience a little localised bruising for a few days, and you may wish to arrange your appointment at a time when you have fewer social engagements to give the minor bruising time to go away.

At Blue Sky Dental, we are always happy to discuss any facial aesthetics questions that our Chelmsford patients may have, and of course you are under no obligation to go-ahead with any treatment should you decide not to. Appointments with our facial aesthetics team can be made by calling our Chelmsford dental practice on 01245 211070.
