Tops Ways to Boost Your Dermal Fillers
Here in Farringdon, our dental practice is known first and foremost for providing quality dental treatments – and it surprises many of our clients to know that we also perform aesthetic procedures, such as dermal fillers. In fact, we’re big fans of facial aesthetics, as we think they’re the perfect complement to your dental treatment with us.
Whether you’re interested in pursuing dermal fillers or have already enjoyed treatment here at our Zero Seven dental practice, we wanted to share with you our top ways to boost your results. We’ll also give you a bit of a guide to things to avoid in those first few days, which can help prolong your results, too.
1: Trust in top-ups
Once the effects of your dermal filler start to ‘wear off’ and your face returns to its natural appearance, it’s worth booking in for a top-up. This helps ensure there’s no gap between the effects and the results – think of it as a kind of maintenance.
2: Don’t forget to destress
Stress has been linked to an increase in ageing – it’s no surprise that some wrinkles are known as ‘’worry lines’’! While dermal fillers are exclusively for the lower face, they can still help fill in and smooth out some of those troublesome lines and wrinkles – and ensuring you stay calm and relaxed (wherever possible!) can also help.
3: Protect your skin
UV rays from sunlight – even when it doesn’t seem like a particularly warm or sunny day – can do untold damage to your skin, particularly when it comes to ageing. Wearing SPF sunscreen (or at the very least, make-up) can help guard against the sun’s rays – as can keeping out of strong sunlight, and covering sun-exposed skin when possible.
4: Moisturise like mad
Keeping your skin moisturised is a key way to helping it look fresh and youthful, while ensuring it stays supple. Dermal fillers use moisturising hyaluronic acid, and have a plumping effect – keeping your skin hydrated with water and quality skincare can also give it a boost.
There are also a number of things to avoid when you’ve had dermal fillers. Smoking and excessive drinking can harm the skin’s healing process and have been linked to skin ageing, while heat treatments are a definite no-no in the fortnight following treatment.
