Covid-19 Safety Measures


By Aneequa Godart

Dermal fillers are one of our most requested treatments at the Expert Skin Clinic.  If you’ve been considering lip fillers or enhancing your cheekbones when our clinics re-open, have a read of the below:

1. Dermal Fillers Plump Up Skin And Stimulate Our Own Collagen

Collagen is a natural substance in our skin that gives it a smooth, full, youthful appearance. As we get older, collagen levels decrease in the body, leading to lines and wrinkles- sun damage, smoking and other environmental factors can play a part too.  At the clinic we only use FDA approved fillers made from hyaluronic acid (which can also be found in our bodies) that effectively restore the skin’s volume and appearance.

2. The Results Are Long-Lasting

Safe and effective temporary fillers can last anywhere from 6-12 months, but you may decide to book a touch-up dermal filler treatment around the six-month mark to maximise the results.

3. Is the Procedure Painful?

Most of our patients report little to no discomfort during their filler treatment, as most dermal fillers contain an anaesthetic or numbing agent- and if not, your practitioner will put some on the area to be treated to numb it beforehand.  The treatment can be done from anywhere to 30 minutes to an hour depending on which areas are being treated, and there is no recovery time needed after receiving a dermal filler though mild swelling and bruising is normal but subsides in a few days.

4. See Results Straight Away

Hyaluronic acid fillers may settle a bit a few days after the treatment, but you’ll be able to enjoy the enhancements immediately.

5. Will They Look Natural?

A little goes a long way to smooth lines, and your face won’t look “done,” unless you have had a few treatments, or excess product.  Dermal fillers can look natural when done by an expert, and give a more youthful look without the ‘trout-pout’ look.

6. Men Love Fillers Too

Our collagen starts to naturally decline from the mid-20s onwards and dermal fillers can benefit both sexes.  Not just for lips, fillers are a great way of filling in lines from the nose to mouth or mouth to chin for a fresher look.
