Dermal Fillers

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When applied by experts, dermal fillers can last for between 6 and 18 months. Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, over time, the body is able to absorb and naturally breakdown the injected amount. Much of the popularity of dermal fillers is attributed to the fact they are a form of non- permanent cosmetic surgery.

Filler is made of Hyaluronic Acid. A water loving molecule that binds up to 400 x its weight in water. It works like a sponge and fills up with water upon injection filling out fine lines/wrinkles and plumping lips. Young skin is moisturized with this hyaluronic acid and naturally occurring sugar. It keeps our skin hydrated via absorption of the water. As we age, this volume of hyaluronic acid decreases and fine lines begin to appear that will eventually turn into wrinkles. In the lips, this causes thinning, loss of fullness, volume and definition. We can also develop vertical or marionette lines around the mouth that cause your mouth to droop, giving you an unhappy appearance. Nasolabial folds can also become deeper due to age-ing along with other factors such as sun exposure, lifestyle, muscle imbalances and so on.
You may experience redness, bruising or swelling in the injected area. These effects should not last longer than 2 weeks. Light makeup can be applied 6 hours after procedure.

Every individual is different. What may give an immediate result on one client may take two or three sessions to achieve on another. Likewise, what may last 1 year on one client may last less than 12 weeks on another. This is due to several factors including lifestyle, skin type, etabolism etc. Filler does however take time to build up, regardless of how natural you want it. Please be patient and expect to visit frequently for top ups over the first year to build a base.

This will help ensure your treatment area lasts longer and once that base is in place – should need less maintenance in the future.

Dermal fillers are an injectable non-permanent cosmetic procedure. When applied by a skilled
practitioner, dermal filler treatment is relatively painless. Most injectable dermal fillers products
contain lidocaine, which helps to numb the site of the injection. Moreover, a topical numbing cream
can be applied to the site of injection, to further ensure a painless treatment.

There are many brands of dermal fillers available on the market and each brand products different products for different applications. Although all dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, they do so in varying concentrations and particle sizes. At Amore Aesthetics, our experts will craft a bespoke treatment for you, ensuring a natural look tailored to your requirements.
