3 common questions we often get about dermal fillers

Here at AP Skincare, we specialise in clinician-led care for your skin. Rather than relying solely on over-the-counter products, we tailor our treatments to each of our patients with medical-grade ingredients and products, to achieve powerful and long-lasting results. One of our most popular treatment options is our dermal fillers. So, if you’re someone who’s keen on the idea of dermal fillers, but you’re not 100% committed because you’re unsure on a couple of points, here are a few of the most common questions we get regarding our dermal filler treatments.

What are dermal fillers used for?

Your face structure changes over the years as your cheekbones, forehead and nose sink inwards along with a downward droop of your skin support. Our dermal fillers create a kind of support for your face, volumising any hollow areas in your cheeks and under your eye’s tear troughs. What’s more, our dermal fillers help to redefine cheek bones and lips, making them more prominent.

What are dermal fillers made from?

Our dermal filler of choice is the Belotero range – a family of products that that has ‘FDA’ approval. This basically means that the product is recognised as having an excellent safety profile, while also producing definitive results. Unlike old fashioned fillers that were difficult to remove, Belotero™ gel is extremely compatible with your face, and can be modified or removed if you’re not 100% satisfied with the result. What’s more, the Belotero range allows us to create customised, sculpted looks for each of our clients. The gel comes in different thicknesses, so the greater the volume we need to define an area, the thicker the gel we use.

Are dermal fillers dangerous?

Not when they’re applied with quality materials, tools, and expertise. Our trained clinicians have years of experience with dermal fillers here at AP Skincare, and the risk of anything going wrong with the treatment is minimal, If you’re uncomfortable with any aspect of the procedure, or you still have any doubts, rest assured that you’ll always have plenty of opportunities to discuss your concerns with one of our team, and we can explain the various risks involved – and their relative chance of occurring – so you can always make an informed decision.”
