Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers come in a variety of preparations depending on the treatment area.

Thicker fillers may be used to augment the jawline, chin, or cheeks. Medium thickness fillers are perfect for the lips and nasolabial folds. Whereas, thinner consistencies are better used to correct fine lines and wrinkles.

Treatments take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes depending on the amount of filler used. Results are seen immediately and last from 9-24 months depending on filler consistency and individual patient characteristics.

Fillers have minimal downtime, which means your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Natural ageing processes cause the skin to lose its elasticity and volume which can lead to lines, hollows and areas of sagging skin.

Dermal fillers consist of one of our skin’s naturally occurring sugars (hyaluronic acid). Fillers restore volume by stimulating collagen production, and by drawing water to the area injected. This can erase wrinkles, hydrate the skin’s deeper layers and restore lost volume to ageing areas. Fillers can also be used to augment features such as cheekbones, providing definition to a chin, or even contouring the shape of your nose!

The procedure itself is minimally invasive, and results can be seen immediately. Fillers have minimal downtime, which means you can return to work the same day.

How long do Dermal Fillers last?

Our fillers last between 9 and 24 months depending on the placement area. Our fillers are ethically sourced from reputable pharmaceutical companies.

Where are dermal fillers injected?

Dermal fillers can be placed in many facial planes. The most common is the subcutaneous layer, which is immediately under the dermis (second layer of the skin). This is a fatty layer of tissue which allows filler to naturally integrate to create smooth contours.

Treatments such as jawline, cheeks, temples are often placed directly onto the bone. Here, a thick filler is used to mimic bone and provide added structure and support.

Dermal Fillers can be used in many areas of the face including:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks- for more defined cheek bones
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smokers lines
  • Chin augmentation

Dermal Fillers are an excellent addition to anti-wrinkle injections or our specialist laser therapies.

Do Dermal Fillers hurt?

  • Bruising –  risk 1 in 5
  • Infection – risk 1 in 3,000
  • Autoimmune reaction – risk 1 in 4,000
  • Vascular obstruction –  risk 1 in 100,000
  • Blindness – risk 1 in 20-50 million
Are dermal fillers safe during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

Dermal fillers are not recommended during breast feeding or pregnancy.

There is no data supporting their safety during breastfeeding or pregnancy. Hence, we recommend not undergoing cosmetic injectables when either pregnant or breast feeding.

Common Treatment Areas

A combination of these areas may be treated with dermal fillers for more complete facial rejuvenation.

Cheeks Augmentation

As we age we lose volume in our cheeks due to loss of fat and bone reabsorption. Fillers can replace the lost volume in the cheeks and give a fuller more defined look. Adding volume to the cheeks also lifts the mid-face improving the nasolabial folds, those lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth.

Nose to Mouth Lines or Nasolabial folds

Nasolabial folds are the lines running from the corner of the nose to the mouth. Whilst the goal is not to completely remove these lines, treating with a dermal filler can decrease the depth of this line giving you a younger more refreshed look.

Lip Enhancement

Volumising of the lips.

Marionette Lines

These lines run from the corners of the mouth to the chin and give people a constant sad or angry look. Dermal fillers can be injected to treat these lines.

Peri Oral Sculpting

Smooth upper lip lines with targeted placement of dermal fillers designed specifically for this indication. Significant improvements can be seen after a single treatment.

Hand Rejuvenation

Dermal fillers are injected into the top surface of the hands increasing the volume of tissue on the hands. This treatment will address the majority of changes of the ageing hand. Veins and tendons will become less prominent, muscle wasting is disguised, skin texture and appearance is improved. Dermal fillers may be combined with laser treatments for more complete hand rejuvenation.
