Dermal Fillers provide a hydrating, volumising, and collagen-inducing effect in the skin, creating a natural lift in depressed areas of the skin and face. Perfect for facial resculpting and rebalancing without the need to go under the knife! If done correctly, it will look like an artist paint-brushing on a beautiful canvas.

IMPORTANT: Please be reassured that at my practice, I only use the safest non-permanent dermal fillers, which provide patients with natural looking results lasting up to 18 months. I have never used permanent dermal fillers and the brands I used have either been approved by FDA or have been strictly regulated and approved by certified industry bodies. Your safety is paramount and I only use products I would happily use on myself, friends, and family.

Specific Treatments we offer with Dermal Fillers

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body, in your eyeballs, joints, and skin, maintaining shape and hydration. It has a similar structure to a sugar molecule. This works by attracting water from the surrounding tissues and acts as a sponge in your skin, giving it a good tone, and lifting the folds.

The Dermal Filler is broken down by natural hyalase in our bodies, forming water and carbon molecules which are then dispersed into the tissues.

A common question that patients ask is if their face would look worse than when they started if they stopped having the treatment. HA Dermal Fillers can certainly prevent the face from ageing faster than we like, but of course we cannot stop the ageing process. The filler will have some effect on the collagen and elastin production of the face and is maintained with scheduled maintenance treatments. However, even if a patient decides to stop having the treatment, their face will return to what it was before their first treatment or what their ageing process will lead them to.

The brands I believe in and trust are Teosyal and Perfectha which are longer lasting and give a more natural result and less downtime.  

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Dermal fillers are used to restore volume or hydration that has been lost and reduces fine or deep lines and folds. They are clear gels which add volume when injected in small quantities.

What areas is it used to treat?

They are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the skin that gives it its volume and structure. As we age our levels of hyaluronic acid deplete and the skin begins to lose volume, fold and sag. Dermal fillers are a quick and easy way to restore facial volume and reduce wrinkles.It can be treated in different areas of the face such as cheeks and eye area.

How will I look after my treatment?

A slight reddening and swelling of the injection site will temporarily be visible. On occasion, some clients may experience bruising but this can be easily covered up with makeup. I recommend Oxygenetix for this.

Does it hurt?

There may be a mild stinging sensation as the injection is performed but all fillers are administered with a local anaesthetic.

What are the side effects?

Side effects of this treatment may include swelling, redness and occasional bruising. Swelling is the most common side effect because the dermal filler attracts water and hydrates the area which has been treated. Tenderness and swelling generally lasts 2 to 3 days.

When will I see the results?

The results are usually instant, with little to no downtime, meaning you can go back to your usual daily routine soon afterwards.

What will I look like if I decide against further treatment? More wrinkles?

If you don’t have any further treatments, the skin will return to its natural pre-treatment state. It has already been clinically proven that fillers stimulate new collagen growth which aids in improving the quality and texture of the skin. Therefore, we encourage you to continue the treatment as needed to fully see the full effects.

How safe is it?

With over 14 million treatments collectively done in the UK, it is one of the most researched and safest treatment (in the right hands) in the industry.

Where does it go when it is broken down?

It will naturally bio-degrade and is slowly metabolised at the treatment site over time.

How often do I need to repeat the treatment?

Depending on what type of filler is used they can last anything from 6 to 9 months or 12 to 18 months before a repeat treatment is required. How long results will last depend on the depth of lines, volume loss, condition of the skin, and lifestyle of the individual.

What products do you use in your clinic?

The brands we believe in and trust are Teosyal and Perfectha which are longer lasting and they give a more natural result and less downtime.
