Introduction to Dermal Filler
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Restylane® Teosyal,Radiesse, and Sculptra® are used as an effective treatment for deep lines and wrinkles. They can help reduce deep lines and wrinkles, fill hollows and smooth the contours of your face. Anti-ageing facial fillers are the non-surgical way to achieve younger looking skin and provide volume for tired lines and wrinkles.
As your skin ages, it loses the collagen that helps shape and support it. Natural lines and wrinkles deepen. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and even stress can all age your appearance. The face can also begin to lose volume giving sunken cheeks and a ‘dragged down’ appearance.

How dermal fillers work
We use a range of premium dermal fillers products that can help you achieve the desired result. It will depend on the area being treated as to which product our qualified practitioners would recommend as the most suitable.
Facial fillers can plump up your skin, smooth wrinkles and fill out deep lines by replacing the collagen lost due to natural ageing or skin damage.
Premium dermal fillers Juvederm®, Restylane® or Sculptra® are injected in small controlled doses just under the surface of skin of the area to be treated. This fills out the sunken areas and lines to give a smoother, firmer and more refreshed appearance. Depending on the type of dermal filler used, results can last from 6 to 24 months.
What does dermal filler treatment involve?
Small amounts of dermal filler are injected directly into the skin using an ultrafine needle. After cleansing the area to be treated, a numbing cream will be applied.
The gel administered helps to pump up the skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles. If the lips or facial contours are being treated, the filler adds volume, restores shape and gives a fuller, fresher appearance.
Dermal filler treatments are only carried out by fully qualified practitioner in our modern, regulated and well-equipped clinics.
What to Expect Before, During and After Treatment
- WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT BEFORE TREATMENT?
Your physician will have an in-depth consultation with you to understand your needs and what facial features you would like to enhance. They will explain all the options to make sure that your Juvéderm® treatment totally satisfies your expectations.
- WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER TREATMENT?
Your physician will advise you on your aftercare. You may be advised to stop wearing makeup for up to 12 hours. You may also be told to avoid the sun, as well as saunas and steam rooms, for 2 weeks. Some people experience a little temporary tenderness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites. It is also recommended that you avoid additional treatments in the treated area for the next 7 days.
- WILL THE PROCEDURE HURT?
The smooth consistency of the products in the Juvéderm® range allows your medical physician to administer the filler easily and smoothly. Many also contain 0.3% Lidocaine to reduce injection pain for a more comfortable experience.
- WILL THERE BE SWELLING?
Following a filler injection, you may experience slight redness, swelling, or bruising at the injected area. These effects should not last for more than a week. Remember, 12 hours after your procedure you can cover up any skin discoloration with makeup.
Juvederm is a long-lasting smooth gel dermal filer and is the only hyaluronic acid volumising filler that is approved by FDA to last up to one year with one treatment.
The benefits of Restylane treatment can be seen immediately and last for several months. This rejuvenating treatment can be repeated once or twice a year to maintain your more youthful look.
Sculptra anti-ageing results are subtle and refined giving a more youthful appearance that can last than two years. Thereafter we would recommend a top up treatment every 9 – 12 months. Sculptra is also an FDA approved product.
