Dermal fillers can be used to lift and restore volume back into the face, while also plumping out wrinkles and deep lines that occur with age to help restore a fuller and more youthful complexion. They can also be used to improve definition in structural areas such as the cheeks, chin and jawline.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dermal fillers contain a substance known as hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in our skin and helps to keep it plump and hydrated. As we get older, the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases, causing volume loss and lines and wrinkles.
In dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid is carried within a gel and when injected, it creates volume by drawing water to the area, plumping out lines and wrinkles to help rejuvenate the skin.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Results last between 6-24 months, depending on a variety of factors such as product type, area injected, degree of correction, age, skin type and lifestyle.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
As long as this treatment is carried out by a fully qualified medical professional, it is completely safe! The most common side effects are redness, bruising and swelling. A full consultation will always be carried out prior to treatment and aftercare will be provided with instructions on how to minimise the risk of any side effects. I will also provide you with emergency contact details in the unlikely event of any serious post-treatment problems.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
Prices vary depending on the areas being treated. View my PRICES page for a full list. For treatment plans over £250 you can also opt to spread the cost of your treatment with interest-free credit over 6, 10 or 12 months or 9.9% interest over longer periods.
WHERE CAN YOU TREAT?
Includes nasolabial (nose to mouth) lines, marionette (corner of mouth) lines and upper lip (smokers/barcode) lines, which can all worsen as we age. Dermal filler can be added to restore volume and smooth out these lines and wrinkles.
As we age, we lose structure in the cheek area which becomes flat. Dermal filler can be added to not only restore volume to the cheek area, but it can also indirectly improve the appearance of tear troughs, nasolabial lines and jowls by 'lifting' the midface. In younger clients, it can also provide that beautiful contoured/defined cheekbone.
This is a popular treatment used to help enhance a weak chin, or to smooth out irregularities such as dimpling. Dermal filler can be added to reshape the chin to provide better projection, sculpt the jawline, soften jowls and improve general proportions of the lower face.
This is a great way to bring definition to a naturally weak jaw, or in older patients to disguise the appearance of jowls. Dermal filler can be added to help contour the jawline and enhance the side profile, chin and jaw area.
These are treatments that are more complex and for which I have undergone multiple advanced training sessions to ensure I am practicing the most effective and safest injection techniques and getting the absolute best results possible. Click below for more information on each.
