Dermal fillers work instantly, so you can see a visible result immediately after injection. It takes up to 4 weeks for the filler to fully integrate into the tissue with some fillers being more cohesive than others.
Dermal fillers don’t make the skin sag, this is a common misconception. In fact, the hyaluronic acid in fillers stimulates collagen production, tightening the skin.
Your clinician is a highly skilled injector and has been trained to choose the right filler to achieve the results you want. They will examine your face and discuss with you what you are hoping for, then choose the appropriate filler.
We have an incredible team of injectors here at Zenith Clinics Doctor Maini is available in London & Nottingham, Dr Lakhani and Dr Singh are both available in Nottingham. They collectively have over 40 years of experience in the field of aesthetic medicine and all of our Doctors here at Zenith have a keen interest in skin rejuvenation to achieve completely natural looking results.
We are very careful with injecting fillers and tend to inject small amounts in any one session. We routinely modify the treatment as required in small steps, so you are completely happy at the end of the treatment. In the extreme hypothetical situation that the filler was placed incorrectly, or in any area not desired by the patient, a natural enzyme can be injected to disperse the filler safely within a few days. We are also available to all our patients seven days a week should there be any issues.
No. The fillers mentioned above are manufactured from bacteria. The skin does not recognise these agents as foreign as the materials present in these fillers are part of our skin. There is NO RISK of catching viral illnesses that can be passed on through animal-based fillers.
Fillers aren’t designed to look fake and over the top. We cater each dose and treatment plan to your individual goals.
Whilst the effects of dermal fillers do fade over time, you should expect them to last between 6 and 18 months.
You’ll see results from your dermal fillers instantly, however because of the swelling post treatment you’ll get a better idea of the final look after around 2 weeks.
This depends on a variety of factors including where the filler is injected, the amount and density of the filler as well as the patient's own metabolism.
