Treatments » Dermal Fillers
What are they?
Dermal fillers are used to remove or reduce lines, folds and wrinkles on any area of the face. They are based on hyaluronic acid, a clear gel, which is found naturally in skin which gives it its elasticity and as we age is degraded so that wrinkles form and skin becomes more lax. The main fillers used are Hydrafill, Restylane and Juvederm. There are other fillers on the market but from our research over the years these have proved to be the most effective.

How are they used?
After a local numbing of the skin (if needed) the fillers are injected into the specific area to be treated. They work immediately to lift the skin and soften the lines but after a couple of days when any redness has subsided their overall effect improves. These fillers can also be used to define lips or to fill them out to increase the 'pout'. The time they last can vary but on average we have found them to last around 12 months making this a very cost effective treatment.

Are they safe?
The fillers used in our clinic have a very good safety record and we ourselves have seen no serious side effects to date. In a similar way to Botox, allergic reactions have been reported and the manufacturers recommend all patients are warned that this is a rare possibility.
