So, you’re pretty sure you’d like dermal fillers. They’re an incredibly popular treatment with countless celebrities, media personalities, and even friends opting for the treatment, and you’d like a fuller pout. However, how do you prepare for your consultation? Are there certain questions you should be asking, or signs to look out for that tell you this is the right (or wrong) place to have lip fillers? Let’s explore all you need to know, consider, and prepare for when booking your dermal fillers consultation.
Questions to answer
Who is performing your dermal fillers?
It’s important to find someone trust to perform your treatments, so make sure you find out the qualifications of your practitioner. For example, you should always place your trust in a medical professional who is trained in aesthetic treatments. In the UK, you currently do not need to be a medical professional to perform dermal fillers, but this of course compromises your safety, aftercare support, and quality of results. Finding a medical professional trained in performing dermal fillers ensures that you receive the safest treatments and the best end results, far surpassing those of an unqualified individual. When seeking dermal fillers, always make sure you choose a practitioner that is medically trained and trusted.
Is there an opportunity to ask questions?
Your consultation is the most important step of you dermal fillers journey, because it’s here that you decide whether or not you trust your practitioner. If there isn’t an opportunity or invitation to ask questions, this is a bad sign. Make sure you find the answers you need before committing to treatment, as this is the perfect time to find out about side effects, aftercare, and how your practitioner will support you should any complications arise. A good dermal fillers practitioner will apply no pressure you to during this process, so make sure you’re comfortable and informed before booking your dermal fillers appointment.
Which products do they use?
There are a range of dermal fillers available to practitioners, and some of which are more popular and trusted than others. Ask to see the box of the product your practitioner will be using to make sure it’s a recognised and approved brand. The ‘official’ boxes of these will have a certain sticker, seal, or other quality assurance that ensures the filler is the genuine article. This will make certain that the product they’re using is safe.
Things to consider
Your results aren’t permanent
Don’t worry, your dermal filler results aren’t permanent. If you’ve heard horror stories of dermal fillers gone wrong in the media, it’s either because they were performed by unqualified hands in a questionable environment (steer clear of these injectable ‘parties’) or because the fillers used were permanent. These permanent fillers tend to be made of materials like silicone, but these aren’t widely used in the UK anymore due to their unpredictability and risks associated. The dermal fillers most UK practitioners use, including those we use at Omniya, are made a gel-like substance that contain hyaluronic acid. This acid is a naturally occurring skin protein, so it is broken down readily by the body over time and is completely safe to use within the skin.
Your dermal fillers can be ‘undone’
Because dermal fillers aren’t permanent, your results can be ‘undone’ at any point. If, for whatever reason, you decide you’d no longer like to maintain your results you can receive a second injectable treatment. This treatment speeds up your body’s natural dissolving reaction to the fillers, returning your treated area back to normal as soon as 24 hours after receiving it. Dermal fillers fillers in Knightsbridge are buildable, which means you can return at appropriate intervals for a ‘top-up’ appointment to keep cultivating your results, too.
