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.
As time goes on, skin naturally loses the elasticity and smoothness as we grow older and underlying tissues break down to form lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers aim to combat this by plumping up sunken or creased areas through simple and effective injections.
Here at AK Aesthetics, we offer the best dermal fillers so that clients will often see the effects after just one injection. Consisting of a clear gel made from a hyaluronic acid, what you are injected with is a completely natural substance that actually already is found in the body. As this substance gives volume to the skin, it lifts the target area, resulting in the appearance of smooth skin.
Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid work by attracting water, and this hydrophilic effect means that the skin is lifted immediately after the injection. The effects are only temporary and require topping up over time. You can expect skin to feel a little swollen directly after the treatment but any redness should reduce within a couple of days.
Dermal fillers should last approximately a year, and serious side effects are extremely rare, but as the product can be dissolved, there is no need to worry should any complications arise. A non-surgical procedure, here at AK Aesthetics, we are pleased to provide dermal fillers to clients across the UK from our clinic in Liverpool.

Immediately after, the treatment site can be slightly swollen and red. This is a normal result of the injection and generally, reduces within a day or two.
