Dermal Fillers

Soften Signs of Aging

Dermal fillers are safe injectable products that replace lost soft tissue, and are used to replenish the skin’s natural volume.  They are often used to soften signs of aging, for example the smile lines (as seen on photos below), or to enhance the lips, the cheeks, or chin.

How long does it take?

After application of a local anaesthetic cream, the procedure is practically painless, and takes less than 45 minutes.

What I will look like immediately after the treatment and is there any recovery time?

Results are immediate. Patients might experience some slight swelling or redness, but this disappears in a day or two.

What types of dermal fillers are used?

In our clinic we only use well-known, highly reputable brands of fillers.

Are dermal fillers safe and are there any complications?

Modern dermal fillers have an excellent safety record, and our practice is a CQC regulated medical clinic.  All our injectable fillers are administered by NHS registered trained and qualified medical staff.

How long do results last?

Results can remain effective from 12 months up to 5 years, depending on the type of product used and the area of treatment.
