A simple guide to dermal fillers: What you need to know

If you’re looking to improve your skin fullness and elasticity and reduce the signs of aging, including the appearance of wrinkles, then dermal fillers may be the answer. This straightforward procedure can revolutionise your look and dramatically improve your self-esteem. The specialists at LINIA Skin Clinic regularly apply dermal fillers, so see below for their quick and easy guide to this simple treatment.

Is the procedure invasive?

Dermal fillers are the non-surgical approach to anti-aging. The procedure simply involves injecting a soft tissue filler into your skin to smooth its surface and disguise the appearance of lines and wrinkles. All this without going under the knife.


What is in the filler?

The fillers used at LINIA Skin Clinic are hyaluronic acid based, with the most popular being the Juvéderm Ultra 4. This acid occurs naturally in the body and is used for growth and repair. It exists to help heal wounds. Therefore, it is a completely safe agent to inject.


How long do the effects last?

Because hyaluronic acid is natural, it is eventually absorbed safely into the skin. This can take six months or more, by which time your skin will be ready for a top up.


What is the process involved in getting dermal fillers?

The first step towards dermal filler injections is to find your perfect skincare specialist. It is highly recommended that you choose an experienced cosmetic practitioner, and that you take your time looking around and reading reviews and recommendations – not just on their website, but on other feedback hubs as well.

Many practitioners offer free consultations in which they will be able to discuss with you exactly what you are looking for, and you will be able to describe to them the precise look you wish to achieve as well as getting to know them personally. It only takes one session to inject dermal fillers, and most specialists are keen to set up follow up meetings to ensure that everything is going well a little way down the line.

LINIA Skin Clinic specialises in cosmetic skincare, and offers a number of options to help you with your skincare and rejuvenation needs. Take a look online to check out the treatments they offer, and consider speaking to one of their expert dermatologists to see just what they can do for you. You may find that a skin peel, a heat-based treatment or even Platelet Rich Plasma treatment may suit your requirements too.
