For those opting not to go under the knife, dermal fillers are THE #1 buzz words when it comes to knocking years off your age. Before you rush off to do an internet search for dermal fillers Surrey you should do your research and make sure you are fully aware of what these fillers are made from and what they will do for you.

Decisions Decisions

Most of us at some time do not like what we see staring back at us in the mirror. We spend millions a year on toners, cleansers, moisturisers and creams that promise we will go to bed and wake up looking 10 years younger. While a good beauty routine essential, being realistic is equally important. Are you going to carry on just using the creams and serums or is it the right time for you to take the next step? You could be a 28 year old looking at preventing the signs of aging making an appearance or a 68 year old looking to make that reflection a lot more appealing. Only you can decide whether this treatment is the right move to make, don't let anyone talk you into something you aren't comfortable with.

Only a Professional Will Do

Do not let anyone inject anything into any part of your body if they are not a fully trained medical professional. There are little beauty salons in the back streets of most towns and cities whose only qualifications are the ones they have received online with little or no practical experience. A simple injection may seem an easy thing to do but get the dosage wrong or inject the wrong place and you could end up in serious trouble.Rylan Clark-Neal is well known for having enhancements and he spoke out about having lip fillers done by somebody who wasn't properly trained. In a frank interview with a magazine, he recalled being on This Morning during his time on the X Factor and was laughing when his lip literally burst open. This was his wake up call to only make safe and informed decisions about his health. Wise words we should all heed to.

What's in that Syringe and What Does it Do?

A filler is a substance similar to gel which is then injected into different areas of the face. Both the depth of the jab, and the fillers consistency, dictates the result you will be left with. Deeper injections with a firm filler will create volume and add shape to a face. Medium depth injections with a medium-firm filler will reduce lines and creased whilst a superficial injection of soft filler which only pierces the dermis will help to plump up and rehydrate the skin as well as smoothing out wrinkles.

Safe and Effective

Talking to the professional carrying out your treatment and deciding on the result you want in advance is how to avoid disaster. It's virtually impossible to end up with the dreaded duck lips after one injection, unless you are being a guinea pig for somebody who is not properly trained and is getting jab happy! This is your face, your reflection, so make the best decision for both of you.
