Face and lip fillers (dermal fillers) are substances injected into your face. They fill lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas such as your lips or cheeks.
Fillers are not permanent. How long they last depend on things like the type of filler and where it's injected. They usually last between 6 and 18 months. If you're thinking about having this treatment, be clear about the dermal filler price list.
The cost of dermal fillers depends on things like the type of product and number of syringes used, and the complexity of the area being treated.
Having dermal fillers is usually safe if it's done by an experienced and suitably qualified practitioner.
Check the person doing your dermal fillers is on a register to show they meet set standards in training, skill, and insurance.
Avoid practitioners who have only completed a short training course.
Book a consultation before you have the procedure.
- the practitioner's experience and qualifications
- the name of the product and how and where it's made
- any risks or possible side effects
- what will happen if things go wrong
- what insurance cover they have
If you've had dermal fillers and you're not happy with the results, talk to your practitioner at the clinic where you were treated.
If you have problems, such as lumpiness, follow any aftercare advice you were given by your practitioner, or contact them for advice about what to do.
See your GP if you have complications that need medical attention, or if you have an urgent medical issue.
