DERMAL FILLERS AT BODY TLC
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid, that fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth and jawline, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue. There are various brands available that work to different densities, have different viscosity and are aimed at providing different enhancements, from subtle natural enhancements to more dramatic volume or structure, your therapist will help you decide what would work best for your needs.
How do they work?
Fillers basically restore lost volume to your face and plump areas, so that deep-set lines are smoothed.
Why is this needed? As we get older our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to the youthful look.
Do dermal fillers have side effects?
It’s easy for clients to confuse side effects to reactions, so it’s extremely important to understand what side effects can be expected.
Temporary side effects – those that are completely normal after facial injections – can include; swelling, redness and tenderness.
It’s completely normal to experience a little bit of discomfort, redness and bruising after the procedure. Reactions generally occur immediately after the needle injection and can include; redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the injection location. These are usually mild in nature and resolve quickly, typically within two days.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Referred to as HA, the natural substance found in many areas of the body including eyeballs, joints and skin, that can hold 1000x its weight in water. Hyaluronic facial fillers helps to maintain shape, even out depressions in the skin and provide hydration.
Poly-Caprolactone (PCl), or Ellanse, is another popular filler that acts as a collagen stimulator, when injected in strategic places in the face, it triggers the body’s natural response to produce collagen, which provides you with a much longer lasting result.
