If you’re on the hunt for a youth-boosting procedure to banish wrinkles, you may have already considered dermal fillers.
Hailed as the ‘no-knife facelift’, injectable fillers have become increasingly popular over the years with celebrities flocking to have their fine lines and wrinkles blitzed.
We caught up with cosmetic surgery guru Laura Casewell to discover more about them.
“Dermal fillers, as the name suggests, are literally used to fill in lines and wrinkles,” explains Laura, editor of The Cosmetic Surgery Guide. “There are a number of different brands on the market, the majority of which these days are made from hyaluronic acid – a substance that is naturally produced by the body to keep skin hydrated.”
One of the main attractions of the anti-ageing marvel is that the treatment is non-invasive with virtually no recovery time necessary. When injected into the skin hyaluronic acid volumises, softens and hydrates the skin. It also aids collagen and elastin organisation underneath the skin which gives the skin a more youthful texture.
Some of the most common dermal fillers currently being used are Juvederm, Perlane, Sculptra, Radiesse and Restylane.They’re all pretty similar and the results are supposedly as good as one another.
So, who is best suited to dermal fillers?
“Pretty much anyone is a candidate for dermal filler,” says Laura. “And according to some practitioners almost anything can be achieved with them, so it’s definitely worth having a consultation to find out what fillers can do for you.”
