Did you know that one of the most common reasons for the appearance of ageing signs on the face is skin volume loss? As skin loses volume, lines around the nose, mouth, and cheeks become deeper and make one look older. Fortunately, our practice in Hampshire, midway between Southampton and Fareham can help you get rid of these signs of ageing with facial dermal fillers. 

If you’re thinking of getting dermal fillers to enjoy more youthful and attractive looks, you might be wondering about how long they take to settle. We will answer this, and many other questions about dermal fillers.

Can Dermal Fillers Be Permanent?

Like other facial and dental cosmetic treatment options, dermal fillers do not last permanently. How long dermal fillers last mainly depends on their type. However, the typical service life of dermal fillers is between 6 – 12 months. Some dermal fillers can even last for up to two years. So, although facial cosmetic fillers are not permanent, they can last a sufficiently long time. 

How Long Does It Take To See Results With Dermal Fillers?

You will see almost instant results after your dermal filler injections. However, these are not the final results. You may experience slight bruising and swelling in the area, and it may take between 10 – 14 days to settle down. So, you start seeing the aesthetic results of dermal filler injections 2 weeks after you had your treatment. 

What Should One Expect During And After A Filler Treatment?

You will not experience any pain or discomfort during this procedure. Our dentists will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure that the treatment area is totally numb. After the injection, you may experience a feeling of “over-filling” at the injection site, there may also be local swelling or bruising that will go away in a few days. 

Do Fillers Cause Inflammation?

You may experience some signs of inflammation after dermal filler therapy, such as redness, swelling, and tenderness. However, these symptoms are temporary and should go away in a few days. However, if they persist after 2 weeks, you should let us know so that our dentists can provide appropriate treatment. 

Can I Go On A Short 1-Hour Flight After Facial Fillers?

Our facial cosmetics experts recommend waiting 24 – 48 hours before taking a flight. However, there are no scientific studies showing any adverse effects of travelling immediately after getting dermal fillers. So yes, one can take a short haul flight after dermal fillers, but it is not recommended. 

What Can You Not Do After Facial Fillers?

It is important to take care of your health after getting dermal fillers. Here are 4 things that you shouldn’t do following dermal facial filler therapy at One Twelve Dental:

  1. Don’t do strenuous exercise right away
  2. Don’t sleep on your face 
  3. Don’t apply makeup for a few days 
  4. Avoid exposing your skin to hot temperatures 

How Safe Is It To Go For Dermal Fillers?

Dermal filler therapy is safe as long as it is performed by a qualified professionals, these should be professional that have advanced knowledge of facial anatomy, like a dentist.

How do dermal fillers work?

Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient in dermal fillers.

It is found in abundance in young skin. It holds onto moisture and provides both elasticity and volume with help from two other substances: collagen and elastin.  Unfortunately, these break down over time and are replenished less and less as we age. This loss presents as wrinkles and diminished facial volume.​

When dermal fillers are administered under the skin they replace this lost volume and plump out wrinkles
