The phrase ‘dermal fillers’ applies to products injected into the dermal layer below your outer skin to plump up your skin and give you a more youthful appearance. These days, fillers are far more popular than the invasive surgical procedures of days gone by. In fact, some people refer to dermal fillers as ‘the non-surgical facelift’ or ‘the no trace face’.
The effects of professionally administered fillers can be truly striking, and don’t involve any cuts, scars or general anaesthetics. This makes them not only more natural looking, but less risky and less expensive than the alternatives, and with minimal downtime for recovery.
All this said, it’s important not to cut corners by seeking out low cost treatments at home or overseas. You may well have seen horrific reports of ‘fillers gone wrong’ in newspapers, online or on television. These terrible outcomes are frequently a result of inferior products being administered by underqualified personnel. All filler procedures at ethos are undertaken by highly qualified Consultant Dermatologists, often assisted by an aesthetic nurse, using licensed products such as Juvederm, a filler favoured by professionals on both sides of the Atlantic.
While most dermal fillers are applied to the lips and cheeks, they can also be administered to your hands, jawline and the area below the eyes.
