Dermal Fillers Dermal fillers have superseded collagen injections and are now used as cosmetic fillers for lips, cheeks wrinkle removal, smokers lines, naso labial folds, treat troughs, crows feet and so on. Dermal fillers are composed mostly of hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in your skin but is lost through the aging process. Dr Charlson is President of BCAM and is working with the Department of Health to produce guidelines to improve safety of dermal filler treatments. Dermal fillers are not considered to be medicines and can be administered in the UK by literally ANYBODY, in the rest of the EU ONLY doctors can administer facial dermal fillers and this reflects the complexity and potential side effects of the treatment.

What are Dermal Fillers? Dermal Fillers are a group of gel substances which are used in facial aesthetics to contour, add volume or plump up areas where wrinkles and folds have appeared due to ageing or scarring. Dermal fillers are usually based on Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which naturally occurs in our skin and joints to hydrate and lubricate. Unfortunately we produce less and less of this HA as we age, which leads to dehydration, lack of volume, drooping and deepening of lines and wrinkles. HA binds with water increasing hydration. Who can administer Dermal Fillers? Dermal Fillers can be administered by anyone, it is up to the consumer to check their training and qualifications. It is possible to set yourself up as an injector after a couple of hours ‘training’ with no knowledge of the underlying anatomy of the face. Without knowledge of the placement of underlying blood vessels, dermal fillers treatments can lead to blockage of these vessels which prevents oxygenation of facial tissue and subsequent tissue death Who can’t have Dermal Filler Injections? Virtually any adult can have filler treatment either as an anti aging treatment or to enhance naural features such as lips or cheeks. Anyone with a previous allergic reaction to a Dermal Filler or someone with a allergy to Lidocaine MAY still be treated at after consultation with Dr Charlson. What should I do after treatment? Following your treatment you can expect some local swelling and maybe bruising, a cold compress may help ease this, and arnica cream may be recommended to encourage the bruise to come out. It is often asked that you avoid any vigorous exercise or sun exposure for 24-48hrs. How long will the effects last? Dermal Fillers are long-lasting but not permanent, depending on the product used they usually last between 6-8 months to 18 months but this can vary for different individuals. Injection efficiency also influences the longevity as does your skin’s ability to build up natural collagen Are Dermal Fillers Safe? There are well over a hundred fillers available on the European market and some are not manufactured to the highest standards, we only use trusted fillers from highly reputable manufacturers. We are always available for follow up appointments and advice. We always administer treatments in a hygienic, safe and clean environment. Dr Charlson may prescribe antibiotics in certain cases.
