Ideal to add volume or softening wrinkles or lips. Very popular for softening laughter lines, facial lines and wrinkles caused naturally by ageing or sun exposure.
Combined with a local anaesthetic, dermal fillers are injected into the skin to give your face a natural volume, leaving your skin completely hydrated and youthful.
In our clinic, we like to make sure that we are offering the best possible treatments supported by using the best possible products.
This is why we offer the highest quality of Dermal Fillers for Wrinkles and Lips volume.
Our Doctor is highly qualified with more than 20 years of experience.
Dermal fillers have been around for over 20 years. Fillers have a great safety profile; they’ve been around for more than two decades and have been used in eye surgery and in joint surgery since 1970.
Initially the first products that were developed for cosmetic case were made from collagen or pork extract. Some of these needed a patch test and they lasted around six months, giving a good result.
The fillers then became more and more refined – the most common type in use today is made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar which is found in our tissues it’s found in our faces, in our eyes, in our joints, and acts to plug and hydrate so it gives skin that youthful glow and that nice soft feature that we identify with younger people, particularly nice cheeks, full lips and a nice structure to the face. As we age we lose hyaluronic acid and our face tends to droop a bit more. Our skin tends to get sun damaged and lose some of its elasticity, our bone structure changes with age, also our ligaments and muscles change becoming a bit more relaxed.
Hyaluronic acid is also present in some skin care products. In that situation, it’s used to hydrate only the top layers of the skin and it will have a very mild effect. To get that depth, lift and volume that we want, we require to inject fillers. Very small needles are used to inject the fillers which also contain a numbing solution to make the procedure as gentle and pain free as possible.
How quickly will I see results?
One of the main questions that we get asked is “If I have fillers how soon will i see results?”. In most cases, 80% of the results will be immediate. Dependant on the area treated, you’ll likely see an immediate restoration of contours or in having your lips enhanced you’ll see your results straight away. After a period of two to four weeks later any swelling or bruising that might occur will be gone, leaving a much more natural result.
During a consultation with one of our doctors, we always ask what results you are trying to achieve, where you like the filter placed and we will always offer our professional guidance.

Hyaluronic acid is very safe and we use a filler by Juvéderm which contains no animal product. The products that we use are FDA approved and adhere to very stringent regulations.
In terms of side effects, most of them are needle related. For example, when using a needle on the face there might be a slight sting, some temporary redness or a small amount of bruising. Usually, any swelling that may occur after having fillers, particularly in the lips can be reduced by using an ice pack.
