Injectable filler is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect.
The natural ageing process means that as time goes on, everyone will experience changes in their skin. It will lose its elasticity and smoothness through the years as underlying tissues break down, forming lines and wrinkles. Here at AK Aesthetics, we provide various solutions to combat these issues from our Liverpool clinic in the UK, including dermal fillers
The goal of dermal fillers is to plump up sunken or creased areas through an easy injection process. We provide clients with the best dermal fillers, meaning that you may even see the impact after just one injection. Made from a clear gel of hyaluronic acid, the injection consists of a completely natural substance that is already is found in the body.
The hyaluronic acid dermal fillers increase the skin’s volume, giving a lift to the skin as it smooths the surface of the target area. It works by attracting water, producing a hydrophilic effect so that the skin is visibly lifted straight after the injection. Whilst the effects are temporary, all you need to do to maintain the appearance of firmer, smoother skin is come back for top-up treatments.
Your new dermal fillers will last you around a year before any topping up is required. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will likely feel a little swollen. Any redness you experience should decrease within a few days, and any serious side effects are extremely rare. A non-surgical procedure, as the substance used in dermal fillers can be dissolved, should any complications arise, it can be easily resolved.
At AK Aesthetics, we are happy to provide dermal fillers to clients across the UK from our clinic in Liverpool. To find out more about our dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid, please get in touch with the team today and we will be happy to help you with any queries you may have for us.
