Dermal Fillers Overview
Dermal filler is a cosmetic injectable treatment used to add volume, lift and sculpt facial contours and minimise deeper lines and wrinkles.
It is widely considered to require the most skill and artistry of all injectables. When treated by a trained professional, it can increase volume, soften lines, enhance, sculpt and restore the youthful three-dimensional contours of the face.
We believe that skilled dermal filler work should be invisible. Meaning that it shouldn’t be overtly obvious. We want to ensure you still look like yourself but with a subtle, natural-looking refresh.
We only use HA (Hyaluronic Acid) based fillers which are biodegradable and easily reversible with the natural enzyme, hyaluronidase, and are hence safer. HA is a sugar molecule found naturally in our bodies which we lose from our skin as we age, making it more dry and fragile. By injecting HA directly back into the skin at different depths, we can achieve beautiful, instant results.
What areas can be treated with dermal filler?
- under-eye hollows (tear troughs)
- nasolabial lines
- mouth corners
- jawline and jowls
- marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the jawline, accentuating the downturn of the mouth)
- deeper lines and folds
What's the first step?
Will my dermal filler results be noticeable?
A lot of people are wary of dermal filler, as they only see the ‘bad work’ out there. It’s understandable, we wouldn’t want ‘duck-lips’ or ‘pillow-cheeks’ either!
Skilled filler work isn’t visible, it just helps you look (and feel) refreshed while still retaining what is special and unique to you.
Often we will provide filler treatments in several stages. This ensures we get continuous, subtle but significant changes that just keep looking better and better!
What are the risks?
Can you remove dermal filler?
HA fillers can be dissolved quickly and easily by using the enzyme Hyalase – once injected, it starts working in about 5-10 minutes, and has usually completed its job in about 48 hours. It can be used to blend a result that’s ‘not quite right’, or to dissolve filler complications such as nodules (lumps) and vascular occlusion (a blocked blood vessel).
Do you offer permanent dermal fillers?
Your face shape and bone structure changes as you age, so injecting permanent dermal filler can cause significant issues in the longer term. We only use temporary, high quality HA dermal filler.
