Treatment Overview


Dermal fillers are natural or synthetic gels that are injected into the skin to volumise, lift and improve the appearance of lines. The dermal fillers used at our Clinic contain Hyaluronic Acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body. It attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also ‘cushioning’ and supporting collagen and elastin fibres and providing a medium, or carrier, for chemical messages between the cells.

Dermal filler can be used:

  • To correct or enhance facial contours; cheeks, temples, jawline, nose, chin
  • To define, correct or enhance lips
  • To soften and correct facial wrinkles or folds
  • To restore lost volume in hands to reduce the appearance of veins and tendons
  • To correct hollows under the eyes (tear troughs)
  • To improve the tone, texture and hydration of the skin

FAQ

Many dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic to provide pain relief during the procedure although we may apply a topical anaesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment to numb the skin.

The procedure may be uncomfortable but is not usually painful. Certain areas, such as the lips, are more sensitive.

Most people are able to continue with normal activities. Some will have some redness, pin- prick marks, swelling (particularly following a lip treatment) which should settle within a few days. Cold packs may be advised to help alleviate swelling and arnica may be recommended to reduce bruising. We will provide you with aftercare advice.

All treatments carry a degree of risk. All risks and complications will be discussed with you at consultation and prior to any treatment being agreed.

Your dermal fillers will be administered by a healthcare professional with specialist training. Adverse events are uncommon, usually occur within a few days of treatment and are expected to be temporary, usually resolving spontaneously within weeks.

Your practitioner will provide aftercare advice designed to minimise risk and promote speedy recovery from any expected side effects.

Bruising and swelling may be more apparent the next day and can take up to 14 days to disappear. Tenderness should settle within 48 hours.

After treatment it is expected that you will see an improvement straight away although due to initial swelling, the product may feel hard or lumpy or asymmetrical immediately afterwards. The final results are best judged at a 2-week review appointment. Depending on the product used and the area treated, results may last from 4 months to in excess of a year.
