Opting to have dermal fillers in Kent may seem like a huge step to take, especially the first time you have this innovative treatment. In fact it’s nothing to be worried about, and treatments typically take about half an hour to complete, depending on how much filler is being injected. Before having treatment you will need to book a consultation with Dr Rik Trivedi or another dentist here at Parrock Street.

Your Consultation Is Your Opportunity to Find out Much More about Dermal Fillers

Your consultation will be to ensure that dermal fillers are the right choice for you, and will also allow you to discuss exactly the kind of results you’d like to achieve through having this treatment. Your facial appearance and skin tone will have been fully evaluated prior to treatment so are dentist knows exactly where to inject the dermal filler. We only ever use the minimum amount necessary, and this is far less than the maximum recommended dose. Quite a few of our patients choose to use dermal fillers in conjunction with Botox to give the maximum results, and this is something we can discuss with you if you’d like.

Treatment with Dermal Fillers

The areas due to be treated will be thoroughly cleansed before the filler is injected using a very fine needle. It’s either injected just under your skin or into your skin and is precisely placed to help fill out wrinkles or add volume where it’s needed. Afterwards you may feel a slight discomfort or notice the treated areas look slightly red or that they feel a bit tender. This feeling should subside after a few days as you begin to notice the full effects of having dermal fillers.

One if the fillers used are Restylane, a naturally biodegradable product that is very safe. This biodegradability does mean that you’ll need to repeat the treatment every so often to help maintain the results. The exact timeframe is likely to depend on the facial areas being treated. Areas that have been treated for wrinkles or loss of volume are likely to need retreating less frequently than the lips.

The use of dermal fillers and Botox is becoming far more mainstream, but it’s important to make sure it’s applied correctly and skilfully by someone who is properly qualified such as the dentists here at Parrock Street.
