Dermal fillers can restore a younger looking appearance in ageing skin and enhance natural features, such as cheeks and lips. It can help improve the signs of ageing by replacing volume lost from the cheeks as you age (from thinning skin, fat, muscle and bone reabsorption). It can also be used to smooth away wrinkles that become more prominent with age, such as nasolabial (nose to mouth) folds and and Marionette lines. 

 

Dermal fillers contain a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is also found in the skin naturally and helps with skin hydration. Results last between 6 – 18 months  depending on the area treated. Areas I treat include cheeks, nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) and Marionette lines. 

 

Lip fillers can be used to add volume to the lips and enhance lip definition where needed. It can be used to correct asymmetries. When it comes to lip fillers, I understand that many people have a fear of getting that ‘overdone’ look. However, I will carefully place filler to sculpt the lips and create natural looking results.

They are classified on the duration of action or by their composition. we use products that contain Hyaluronic acid (HA). Due to their predictable results, excellent biocompatibility and easy reversibility, HA fillers are considered the safest and most reliable dermal fillers in the British cosmetic industry.

Generally, any area of the face that has lost volume over time or requires enhancement can be treated. Most common areas include:
Cheeks
Lips
Naso-labial folds

The results are instantaneous, and in certain areas such as the lips, there could be up to 25% reduction in size once the swelling settles.

This depends on which areas are treated and what products are used. Lip augmentations last on average 6 months.

The common side effects include bruising and swelling which generally resolves within 2-7 days with good post operative care.
