Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular choice for getting plump, youthful and smooth skin, or for contouring the face.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, made up of specific percentages of hyaluronic acid, depending on the area treated, that fills in wrinkles and adds volume to soft tissue. You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth and jawline, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.

How do they work?

HA fillers basically restore lost volume to your face and plump areas, so that deep-set lines are smoothed. Why is this needed? As we get older our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to the youthful look. They are also used to reshape parts of the face to improve balance and symmetry. 

How long do dermal fillers last?

It depends on how your body reacts, where you have them and how quickly it is broken down, but most dermal fillers will last between 6 and 18 months

Do dermal fillers hurt?

There may be a slight discomfort whilst the filler is being injected into the face. But we minimise this by applying an anaesthetic cream before treatment. To provide further relief and alleviate as much pain as possible, our high-quality fillers contain a pre-mixed local anaesthetic.

Is there a difference between Botox and dermal filler?

Yes, there is 100% difference between Botox and fillers! Botox stops the small muscles in your face from making the movements that cause wrinkles, while dermal fillers plump from below the wrinkles to smooth and reshape and promote the youthful look.
