General Dermal Filler FAQs

Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance that is injected underneath the skin to restore volume. They can temporarily enhance the appearance of your lips and ‘fill’ in any lines or gaps where desired.
Dermal fillers serve the purpose of adding and filling volume into the face to give the appearance of smoother, bouncier and more youthful skin. Anti-wrinkle injections, on the other hand, prevent the muscles on your face (or anywhere else) from moving to prevent wrinkles.
The best and most popular brands in the dermal filler market are Juvéderm and Revolax, both of which have different hyaluronic acid-based formulas that cater to different parts of the face.
Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections can only go wrong if the injectables are not administered properly, or if you develop a severe allergic reaction to the substance. Before undergoing either procedure, it is essential to speak with your practitioner about your medical history and other precautions.
If you are unhappy with your dermal fillers, correcting your fillers with hyaluronidase is advised.
Dermal fillers work by your practitioner injecting the substance (typically hyaluronic acid) underneath the skin, while avoiding blood vessels, to either plump or smooth out the injected area.

General Anti-Wrinkle Injection FAQs

Anti-wrinkle injections are temporary muscle relaxants that are injected underneath the skin to minimise the appearance and formation of wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle injection types range from Type A to F. In the UK there are two available types of anti-wrinkle injections: Type A and Type B. Type A injections consist of brands like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, and for Type B, there are brands like Myobloc and Neurobloc. Type A injections are most often used for cosmetic treatments like treating fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperhidrosis. Type B injections, on the other hand, are used more for medical purposes.
Botox is the most popular and reliable anti-wrinkle injectables brand for cosmetic treatments because of its quality and longevity.
Anti-wrinkle injections work similarly as dermal fillers. The substance is injected into the skin to achieve your chosen treatment—whether that’s smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, slimming the face, or temporarily curing hyperhidrosis.
More often than not, when anti-wrinkle injections have adverse effects, the only solution is to wait for them to wear off. However, it is essential for you to have a thorough discussion with your practitioner on the risks, side effects and areas where it would be best not to administer injections. If adverse effects do occur, immediately seek your practitioner for advice.
Depending on the area of treatment, the full effect of the results can be seen in over one or two weeks.
There may be a little bruising which dies down within the week after the treatment. However, everyone is different, and some people are more prone to heavy bruising than others.
