INJECTABLE IMMEDIATE RESULTS


Dermal fillers can help to restore our skin to its former youthful, fuller appearance and treat signs of damage and ageing.

As the skin ages, over time it loses some of its collagen and fat. These are the materials that prevent your skin from sagging. This means that our skin becomes wrinkled.

Teeth Whitening

Dermal fillers are injected gently, with very fine needles, into the areas of the skin where it needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer. The treatment can have an enormously positive effect on your appearance and self-esteem.

The fillers are sometimes mixed with a local anaesthetic so that the injections are comfortable and we also offer numbing cream before your treatment to make it more comfortable. Most patients report no pain and the procedure lasts from 15-30 minute.

Fillers come in different thicknesses. In general, the thicker the filler product, the deeper it will be injected into the dermal layer of the skin. This helps to plump out fine to deep lines and wrinkles.

Your Questions Answered


Are there different types of fillers?

There are many different brand names of dermal fillers. However, in the UK the most widely used brands of fillers are made from sterilised laboratory-made HYALURONIC ACID, which is a naturally occurring molecule in your body. Your own naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid is found in your skin eyes, tissue etc.

We only use leading and trusted brands that have a good safety profile, predominently Juvéderm Ultra®


How do dermal fillers work?

Fillers are pure crystal clear hyaluronic acid (HA) gels which, when injected into the skin replenishes our own native HA which we lose through ageing delivering action where it is needed. It boosts the skin's own hydration system and restores youthful volume by supporting the skin's structure and working at a deep dermal level to delay the signs of ageing.


How long does it take to work?

Results from the treatment can be seen immediately.


How long does the treatment last for?

For facial line smoothing the gels are gradually broken down after 9-12 months. Lip enhancements last for 6-12 months. Most patients who choose to have repeat treatments do so at the time when they feel the effect starting to wear off i.e. anytime between 6 and 12 months.
