Fillers can be used to volumise, shape, rejuvenate or smooth the skin on the face, hands and decolletage.
The most common areas we treat are the cheeks, nasolabial lines (nose to mouth), marionette lines (below the mouth), lips, tear trough and jowls. There are different fillers depending upon the area to be treated, ranging from hydrating fillers which are perfect for the decolletage, smooth fillers ideal for the lips or denser fillers for volumising which are most suitable for the cheeks. Often, a combination of areas and fillers are used to achieve the perfect result.

Dermal fillers are used for facial aesthetic treatments and are injected into the skin. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and to revitalize the skin. Dermal fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid which is a substance that naturally exists in your body.
The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 12 months. Dermal filler injections can give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression.
Using a tiny needle, the filler product is injected into the skin or just below it depending on the area being treated. The filler plumps up the layers of skin immediately beneath the area and the result is an instant filling-out effect so that the skin is smoother, less wrinkled and more youthful.
We only use fillers with a proven track record for safety and so you can be assured that they are safe. We do not treatment anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding and those with active skin infections such as cold sores. The injection may sting and can be slightly painful, but many people experience only mild discomfort. Anesthetic creams and/or injections can be used. Although most of the injectables we use already have a numbing agent in, this is called Lidocaine.
Since the products are hypoallergenic gels, allergic reactions are extremely rare. Side effects are uncommon but can occur, and include bruising, tenderness, reddening, and occasionally itching.
There is usually a little swelling immediately after treatment but in most cases it is very mild. If any of these do occur they usually settle within a week.
Bruising can sometimes be significant and last no more than a week, it is best to avoid anti-inflammatory (aspirin, ibuprofen) for at least 7 days before treatment, unless these have been prescribed for a medical indication. Alcohol within the previous 24 hours can also increase the risk of bruising. Treatments are only carried out after a full medical history has been undertaken.
