Understanding Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers offer convenience and immediate results for patients who want to address various signs of facial aging without missing a beat from their busy lives. Dermal fillers treatments are short to execute, require no recovery time and pose minimal risks of side effects. Dermal fillers are capable of replenishing lost volume, filling deep creases, and revitalizing your appearance without the need for invasive surgery.
Dermal fillers are part of a larger family of injectable treatments. With dermal fillers, their main purpose is to offer patients the ability to replenish lost volume and create a fuller, perkier, youthful appearance. One of the primary symptoms of aging is a generalized loss of fullness and volume in the skin. This phenomenon is a natural part of aging but leads to the development of facial aging such as sunken cheeks, sharp features and deep creases around the nose and mouth. Dermal fillers are the answer to these symptoms, giving patients a renewed lease on a youthful appearance.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are lauded for their ability to restore lost volume in the cheeks and lips, smooth, correct, soften, and rejuvenate deep wrinkles, folds, and facial lines, reshape the contour of the cheeks, remove scars, and enhance the contour of the lips.
Dermal fillers are not meant to replace cosmetic surgery and are indicated depending on the specific goals of the patient.
Dermal fillers can also be performed with other cosmetic procedures to achieve more of your aesthetic goals at once. Though the results are not permanent, and additional treatments are often recommended, the dermal filler treatments are fast, relatively painless, and safe. With Dr. Grant Hamlet, located in London, England, we are pleased the offer a complete line of the most advanced dermal fillers available.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Not all dermal fillers are created equal and the type of dermal filler used for a treatment depends on the symptom being addressed and the specifics of the patient’s anatomy. There is a wide selection of dermal fillers to choose from, each with a unique set of characteristics and benefits. There is no “perfect” dermal filler, but rather ideal dermal fillers better suited for different needs. With Dr. Grant Hamlet, we are pleased to offer the following types of dermal fillers:
Juvederm is the best selling dermal filler in the United Kingdom.
Juvederm is a non-surgical treatment that provides up to a year of correction for lost facial volume. The Juvederm brand comes in a variety of type, but each is based on the main active ingredient hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the human body and is a molecule known for its ability to retain moisture and trigger localized collagen production in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is well-suited as a volumizing agent because it poses the minimal allergic risk and produces natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Juvederm treatment requires no downtime and patients can immediately return to their normal daily routine.
Voluma, also in the Juvederm family, is another dermal filler designed specifically for aging symptoms of the mid-face area. This filler adds volume to the cheeks and addresses wider, sunken areas. Voluma has long-lasting results, which typically last between nine months to a year.
Volbella is one of the latest offerings from the Juvederm line and is a dermal filler specified for lip augmentation and rejuvenation. This filler is meant to minimize and diminish the small, vertical fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. The composition of Volbella is well-suited for gentler volumization and excels at fine detail volumizing.
This filler helps stimulate the skin’s youthful appearance and is intended to increase volume in the face lost to the effects of aging.
Sculptra injections are made from injectable poly-L-lactic acid for correction of nasolabial fold and deep facial wrinkles. The active ingredients in Sculptra are unique because they can accomplish both immediate improvement and long-term rejuvenation. Sculptra’s molecules trigger the renewed production of collagen, a vital building block of healthy, youthful skin. Sculptra has in use worldwide since 1999 and has delivered effective results for patients around the world.

A dermal filler treatment is a simple process, but requires expert technique and an artistic eye to achieve natural-looking results.
Injection technique and injection location can make huge differences in your final results. For example, dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Sculptra tend to produce the best results using a cross-hatch injection pattern for improved distribution and balanced volume.
The injection process itself can take as little as fifteen minutes or longer if a patient requests a topical numbing agent. One the injection process is complete, you may be given an ice back to ease discomfort and swelling. Patients can immediately return to light normal activity as soon as their treatment is complete.
Dermal fillers provide some of the most minimal recovery downtimes of any cosmetic treatments.
On average, patients are allowed to return to work almost immediately after the procedure and may continue their daily return. However, we do advise that any heavy lifting or strenuous workout be avoided for the first 3 days, just to allow your body the time and energy to heal at its own pace.
We will track your recovery progress to ensure that you are free of any complications or severe side effects. Swelling and some mild bruising can be expected but should disappear in a few days.
