Dermal filler injections are a highly popular aesthetic treatment and are primarily used to restore volume to the face.

As such, dermal fillers are a common anti-aging treatment in that they can help to stimulate collagen production and minimise wrinkles. 

If you’ve never received dermal filler injections and are interested in the treatment, you might be wondering what the benefits of them are.

Benefits of receiving dermal filler injections include, but are not limited to:

  1. Plumps lips 
  2. Minimises fine lines and wrinkles
  3. There’s minimal downtime required 
  4. Restores plumpness to your cheeks
  5. Minimises the appearance of scars 

1. Plumps Lips 

A large benefit of dermal filler injections is that they work effectively to plump thin lips.

The results of lip fillers can last from anywhere between 6 to 18 months, helping to provide a fuller look and even balance out naturally uneven lips.

Depending on the amount of filler you opt to have, dermal fillers can produce incredibly natural results.

If you have thin lips and would like to add some volume, then, dermal fillers could be the right choice for you.

At You Can Clinic, we offer a range of facial aesthetic courses, from dermaplaning to dermal fillers. Get in touch with a member of our team today.

2. Minimises Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Dermal filler injections also help to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

A variety of factors contribute to us developing fine lines and wrinkles.

In fact, ‘UV exposure seems to be responsible for 80% of visible facial ageing signs’, and when paired with a loss of elasticity over the years, it’s normal for wrinkles to form as we get older. 

Dermal fillers can help to provide a more youthful complexion by penetrating and plumping the underlying layers of skin.

As a result, wrinkles and fine lines become less visible and prominent, especially when you have top-ups on a regular basis.

3. There’s Minimal Downtime Required

Arguably one of the biggest benefits of dermal filler injections is that there’s minimal downtime required. 

Many aesthetic treatments, such as chemical peels require downtime, meaning you have to be mindful of when you receive these specific treatments.

Dermal filler injections, on the other hand, are minimally invasive. So, what is the recovery time for dermal fillers?

Dermal Fillers Recovery Time

Generally speaking, the recovery time for dermal fillers is 1 to 2 days, and the majority of people can return to normal activities immediately after receiving the treatment.

This means that you’ll not only be able to enjoy the immediate results, but you’ll also be able to carry on with your normal routine in no time at all.

That said, it’s important to discuss this with your aesthetic practitioner and always follow their aftercare advice for the best possible results.

4. Restores Plumpness To Your Cheeks

Another benefit of dermal filler injections is that they help to restore plumpness to your cheeks.

It’s natural to lose volume and for your cheeks to begin to sag over time as you age. This can cause the cheeks to look hollow as they lose their elasticity, contributing to you looking older.

Dermal fillers help to restore the volume in your face, helping to add plumpness to your cheeks.

In turn, dermal fillers help to provide you with a more youthful and rejuvenated look.

5. Minimises The Appearance Of Scars 

Last, but not least, a benefit of dermal filler injections is that they help to minimise the appearance of scars.

If you’re someone who struggles with acne and acne scars, dermal fillers work by filling in the crevices to provide the skin with a smoother texture.

In turn, this reduces the appearance of the scars, making for a more aesthetic and even skin texture.
