Dermal Fillers

Dermal FillersWhat are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, commonly used to improve facial irregularities, such as thin lips and sunken cheeks. They are injectable products made from a substance called Hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the skin. HA helps to add volume and hydration to skin by binding water molecules and therefore dermal fillers are helpful in correcting lines and wrinkles as well as providing natural volume for facial contours.

What does a dermal filler treatment involve?

Depending on the treatment involved dermal fillers can take between 20 minutes to one hour. The products we use contain anaesthetic so they are relatively painless, however also use a numbing cream for particularly sensitive areas. Before and after photos will be taken for your medical notes and we provide an after-care advice leaflet following your treatment.

How long will the results last?

Treatment results last between 6-18 months; depending on a variety of factors such as product type, area injected, age, skin type and lifestyle.

Are dermal fillers painful?

Your comfort is our priority, therefore we use a local anaesthetic in the form of a cream on patients, applied 30-45 minutes before your treatment. Whilst this will not make the injections pain free, it will certainly make the procedure more comfortable.

In addition we only use products which contain anaesthetic within the filler, therefore making the treatment more tolerable than some other fillers.

Aren’t all ‘filler treatments’ the same, no matter where I have it done?

No is the answer. Filler treatments are highly complex and require an in depth consultation prior to the procedure to discuss the type, amount and location of where each individual client requires treatment.

Why are your filler procedure more expensive than some other clinics?

It is true you will find other clinics filler treatments or ‘syringes’ are cheaper, however we strongly agree that ‘you get what you pay for’. In order for dermal fillers to be done well, and look natural, they require an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, and extensive pre- treatment planning and facial mapping; unique to each and every person. Although ‘cheek filler’ might look great on one person, it may not be suitable for another.
