Dermal fillers are used to fill out wrinkles and creases in the skin here at our clinic in Ipswich.

They can also be used to increase the volume and definition of the lips and cheeks. The fillers are made from a variety of materials, and the effects can be either temporary or permanent, depending on the type of filler.

If you’re considering dermal fillers, be certain about why you want to have them.

Limitations

Most fillers aren’t permanent. There’s no guarantee the desired effect will be achieved. The ageing process will still happen elsewhere.

What it involves

You may be offered a local anaesthetic cream or syringe. The dentist injects the filler in a series of small injections and may massage the area. The treatment time can vary from 30 minutes to an hour. It may be uncomfortable but should not be very painful.

Afterwards

The area may be a little swollen, tender and red for 24 hours. During that time, you may be advised to avoid coffee, alcohol, hot drinks and the sun.

Risks

The risks of dermal fillers depend on whether the procedure was done correctly and the type of filler used. Permanent fillers have the highest risk of problems, and some practitioners feel they are best avoided.
