Dermal fillers plump and hydrate your skin. They replenish lost volume and smooth deep wrinkles to rejuvenate your appearance.
Fillers can also enhance your natural features. For example, by adding definition to your lips, reducing the appearance of scars or recontouring your nose.
The benefits of dermal fillers
Dermal fillers can be used to:
Real patients, real results
For this patient we used 2.5ml of Juvéderm Voluma dermal filler to restore her depleted cheek volume. This re-plumped her cheeks, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Dermal fillers are available at these clinics
What are dermal fillers made of?
The majority of dermal fillers we use are made of hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance which helps your skin to retain water. It also supports the structure of collagen and elastin fibres.
The exception to this is our Sculptra filler treatment which is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) filler. Rather than adding instant volume, Scupltra works gradually to stimulate collagen production and add volume over a number of weeks.
Which dermal filler brands do you use?
We stock a selection of high quality filler brands and will select the best one to suit your treatment. The brands we use include Juvéderm, Restylane and Sculptra.
What filler treatments do you offer?
Our dermal fillers can be used in a wide range of areas:
- Any deep facial wrinkles or folds
- Cheeks, chin and temples
- Neck, décolletage and hands
- Tear troughs
We also offer Profhilo and Skinbooster treatments. Like most of our fillers, these are also made from hyaluronic acid. However, rather than adding volume to a particular area, they instead provide an overall hydrating and rejuvenating effect.
Do dermal filler injections hurt?
No, our fillers include a built-in local anaesthetic to minimise discomfort.
How long does the appointment take?
Your appointment, which includes a consultation with one of our expert practitioners, will take at least 45 minutes. Depending on the number of areas to be treated, it could take longer than this.
Is there any downtime after filler treatments?
We do everything we can to minimise swelling or bruising after your treatment, for example by using local anaesthetics and, when appropriate, a cannula to administer the injection.
Any swelling, bruising or redness which does occur, should have calmed down after a couple of days and be completely gone ten days after treatment.
Who can have dermal filler treatments?
Our practitioners will always take a full medical history to ensure that it is safe for you to have dermal fillers. If you are pregnant or breast feeding you will not be able to have them.
We will also discuss the results you are looking for, to make sure that fillers will give you the benefits you want.
Can I have other treatments alongside dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are frequently used alongside botox for a complete rejuvenating effect. The two treatments complement each other perfectly: botox focuses on active wrinkles and mainly in the upper face, while fillers tackle static wrinkles and are predominantly used on the mid and lower face.
What our patients say
Thank you to our patients for these kind words
After my mid thirties, following childbirth and ensuing weight loss, I noticed a gradual, yet noticeable, loss of shape to my face. Now, following Sculptra treatment in my mid forties, I have a more rounded and youthful appearance to my face and when I look in the mirror, I believe that the person I am is the one that still smiles back.
Tee – just wanted to say I’m chuffed to bits with my Botox and filler results. So happy with how much my frown line has disappeared and how quickly the Botox worked. By day 3 my lines had disappeared. So thank you.
Tim got rid of my very deep frown line that made me look tired and angry with a mixture of Botox and filler.
