Dermal Fillers For Your Forehead*

Are the lines on your forehead getting you down? Perhaps you've already had Botox; with varying degrees of success? Don’t panic. Dermal fillers are an alternative solution when it comes to getting rid of the lines that become deep and embedded in the skin. In a lot of cases, Botox is not enough to get rid of such lines; but Dermal Filler could be just the thing you need, leaving you looking & feeling youthful and refreshed.

How does Dermal Filler work?

Dermal Fillers are injected into the area of the face to be treated in small amounts; using an ultra-fine needle. Or sometimes via a cannula. The filler is injected into the middle layer of the skin; where the gel adds fullness and volume, filling the embossed area to ensure the forehead is smooth. This isn't the only way in which Dermal Filler works; either. The gel will also integrate with your dermal tissue - thus helping to maintain volume by attracting and binding water molecules. 

What is the difference between Botox and Dermal Fillers?

Botox and Dermal Filler are essentially designed to have the same sort of effect – to smooth out lines and wrinkles. However, they work in two completely different manners. Botox involves injections that relax the muscle to smooth out the lines. On the other hand, Dermal Fillers work by injecting filler into the skin in order to plump out the area and thus smooth out the lines. In some cases, Botox is enough on its own. But when it comes to deep forehead lines, a lot of clients opt for Dermal Fillers to achieve the results they want.

The Importance Of A Consultation

It's imperative that you do your research when picking a practitioner & / or when booking any form of plastic surgery consultation. If you have not undergone any treatment for your forehead lines before, don’t dive straight in. Instead, a specialist will assess your forehead to determine the best approach, i.e. whether Botox will be enough on its own or not. They will present you with their expert opinion, and it is up to you whether you wish to proceed with the treatment. They will also answer any questions you may have and talk you through the entire process, including the aftercare phase. 

The Procedure & Recovery

This is a quick treatment, which typically takes about an hour. Your specialist will use a numbing cream to ensure you do not feel the injections, and the recovery phase is usually between two and four hours. They will give you advice on the aftercare you need to follow for the 24-hour period after the treatment. It is as easy as that – within a day you will be back to yourself. You can expect the results of the Dermal Filler treatment in this area to last for 9-12 months, after which you'll need to book a top-up treatment to maintain the look.

Dermal Fillers – Forehead Volume 

Specialists can restore an embossed forehead with the expert placement of Dermal Fillers. Look for a clinic that has focus on creating natural enhancements and restoring beauty in an artistic way, producing fresh and youthful results. 

What To Expect

Once you have had your consultation, your practitioner will move onto the treatment phase. This begins by cleaning the forehead and applying numbing cream so that you do not feel the injections. You can expect this procedure to last around an hour, after which the recovery phase will be between two and four hours. The aftercare phase is another 24 hours - your doctor will advise you on how to care for your forehead during this period. 

How Long Will The Results Last? 

You'll notice results for at least nine months, with some people not requiring a top-up treatment for a full year. If you don’t have another treatment after this period however, you can expect your forehead to go back to its pre-treated state. 

Risks & Complications

There are very few risks and complications associated with Dermal Fillers. However, some people do experience mild side effects; such as bruising, swelling & redness. Nevertheless, if you do not choose a clinic with care then you could fall victim to someone who does not carry out the procedure safely, and thus you could experience complications. This highlights why it is vital to select a clinic with a considerable degree of experience and a positive reputation.

Please ensure that if you decide to have any form of aesthetic treatment, you do your research and go to a registered, insured clinic with qualified medical professionals
