As another chapter closes and 2022 becomes a distant memory, the start of a new year is the perfect time for a reset to get you feeling like your most confident self for the year ahead. If you’re new to injectable treatments and are considering dermal fillers for the first time, then look no further than the REVOLAX dermal filler range. In this article, we’re sharing some dermal filler secrets to get you clued up for your first time under the needle.

What are dermal fillers, in layman’s terms?

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical solution used to address the signs of ageing and enhance facial features. They are primarily formulated with hyaluronic acid, a miracle molecule that occurs naturally in the body and helps to add volume and subtle hydration to the skin. When injected into the skin, dermal fillers can help to restore lost volume, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin.

Here are some dermal filler secrets you may not have known before!

Dermal Filler Secrets #1: Staying hydrated can help to maintain the longevity of your dermal fillers

It’s a well-known fact that drinking water and staying hydrated are crucial elements for sustaining a healthy lifestyle, however, staying on top of your litres will also help to maintain the longevity of your dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid, the primary ingredient of dermal fillers, is hydrophilic which essentially means the molecule attracts copious amounts of water. Keeping hydrated following a dermal filler treatment will help to enhance the effects of dermal fillers, preserving a plump and voluminous look to the injected area. 

Dermal Filler Secrets #2: Dermal fillers can give you natural-looking results and they are merely based on your personal goals 

One of the biggest concerns people have about dermal fillers is the ‘overdone’ look. However, with the help of a skilled practitioner and realistic goals, dermal fillers can add subtle enhancement to the face. REVOLAX is designed to give you soft, natural-looking results that will accentuate your features without giving an overly ‘done,’ look. So, you’ll still look like yourself, just a more refreshed and youthful version which everyone is in pursuit of in 2023.

Dermal Filler Secrets #3: Dermal fillers can be injected beyond the lips!

Many patients are still under the impression that dermal fillers are restricted to the lip area only. Although it’s somewhat logical for patients to think this since lip augmentation is amongst the most popular treatments in aesthetic medicine, there are other injection areas to refine your look. For example, REVOLAX has a range of different products that are tailored to suit different needs and areas of the face. Whether you’re looking to plump up your lips, smooth out wrinkles, or restore volume to your cheeks, there’s a REVOLAX product that can help. 

Dermal Filler Secrets #4: Choosing the right practitioner is the most important consideration of all

Making sure that you choose the correct practitioner for your dermal filler appointment will ensure a successful and safe treatment. Your practitioner will be able to discuss your options and help you choose the best filler for your individual needs and goals. When it comes to selecting a practitioner, it’s crucial that you look beyond price point; cheap treatments do not equal better! 

A good practitioner should have a comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy which is pivotal for delivering great results and safe treatment.  It’s important that you, as a patient, lay down the groundwork of your expectations from a practitioner. Prior to booking your dermal filler appointment, you need to decide what level of training and expertise you expect from your aesthetics practitioner. Practitioners with a host of qualifications, training and knowledge are amongst the most sought-after aesthetic professionals and for good reason; a medical qualification brings with it an obligation from the General Medical Council (GMC) to place their patient’s best interest above anything else. If someone’s top priority is what they can extract monetary-wise from you, this is unlikely to lead to a good outcome for you. 

Dermal Filler Secrets #5: Dermal filler appointments don’t take hours

One of the biggest advantages of dermal fillers is that they are minimally invasive, meaning they do not require much downtime. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after treatment, although some mild swelling, redness, or bruising may occur. These side effects are usually temporary and will resolve within a few days.
