Dermal Fillers are used to create volume, give fuller lips and shape facial contours such as the cheeks and chin whilst revitalising the skin.
Compared to other anti-wrinkle treatments dermal fillers allow greater precision in wrinkle correction, and are used to treat medium to deep wrinkles. The procedures do not cause any loss of ability to contract your facial muscles.

What areas can be treated with Dermal Fillers?
Lips: Dermal Filler is used to enhance volume, which is lost naturally as we age. It can be used to re-define the shape of your lips, and correct marionette lines; these appear at the corners of the mouth and are associated with loss of volume and aging.
Cheeks: Dermal Filler is used to enhance volume, add hydration and also to contour the overall shape of your face. Cheeks will appear fuller, and rounder giving your face a softer, more youthful appearance.
Under eyes: Dermal Filler is used to erase the hollowness that can appear under your eyes, giving the face volume and contour to pull back the signs of aging.
Nasolabial folds: Dermal Filler is used to soften deeper lines from the nose to the corners of our mouth that can appear on our face as we age.
Deep Lines: Deeper lines that can appear on our face as we age, will often require dermal filler treatments to correct them. Used in conjunction with anti wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers can be used on smile lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and the forehead.
Chin and jowls: Dermal Filler is used to give a smoother chin line by filling in those areas where loss of collagen has changed the appearance and firmness of the skin. Returning volume and tone to the skin and underlying supportive soft tissue will create a softer and toned appearance and can actually create a lift of the jowl without surgery.
What happens during the treatment?
Treatment involves a Doctor safely making a number of small derma filler injections into the lines/wrinkles/folds in the face. This will take between 15-30 minutes.
Does it hurt?
The Doctor uses the highest grade derma filler with a local anaesthetic, this makes the treatment relatively pain free. Minimal discomfort, redness, swelling may be experienced following the procedure, but this usually passes quickly.
Is derma filler safe?
Derma filler resembles the bodies own hyaluronic acid, this reduces the risk of allergic reaction and allows it to slowly and safely dissolve over a period of time. This process has no adverse effect on your body.
What happens after my treatment?
You can resume normal activity, although we suggest avoiding strenuous physical activity/ gym/ other procedures for approx. 24 hours.
How long will it last?
This depends on many factors, such as your skin type, skin condition, lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up treatments are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the client and the treatment.
A treatment of the lips lasts approximately 6 months.
Are there possible side effects?
Most clients have no side effects to treatment, although you may experience mild headaches, or notice slight bruising, swelling to some of the areas that have been treated.
