Dermal fillers are a popular treatment in our clinic. As the name suggests these products are injected into dermal layers of the skin to address a variety of issues.

The ageing process not only results in the appearance of lines and wrinkles but also causes volume loss. The dermal fillers used in our clinic contain Hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a sugar that occurs naturally in the skin, providing the skin with hydration, plumpness and replaces the lost volume through ageing process or simply to give a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Some popular treatments include:

- Lip enhancement/augmentation

- Nasolabial folds (Nose to mouth Lines)

- Hollow temples

- Tear troughs (under eye)

- Marionatte lines (Sad Smile)

- Chin enhancement

- Cheek enhancement

- Jawline filler

- Non surgical Nose Job

- Hand rejuvenation

Although the fillers that we use in our clinic are all hyaluronic acid based, they differ from one another due to their chemistry. Some are soft and runny, ideal for example for tear trough placement and some are harder and imitate bone which is ideal for creating cheeks or a sharp jawline, and some are in between these two.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers have many advantages. Firstly they are non-permanent and can be dissolved. This is a great advantage. If any adverse effects occur during treatment, the filler can be dissolved immediately to prevent further complications. This property makes HA fillers a safer treatment option to permanent fillers.

The other great advantage of a non-permanent dissolvable filler is that the body naturally breaks down HA fillers in a matter of a few months (usually 6-18 months) so if fashions change or you don't want a certain look anymore, the filler is either dissolved or left alone to disappear by itself.

In my clinic we use premium, high end, CE approved European brands. All brands are available at patient's request as long as they are CE approved.

Stating the obvious!!

Although dermal fillers are a safe alternative and are classed as non-invasive treatments, they are only as safe as the hands they're in.

Ensure your injector is a qualified and ensured medical practitioner. Ask and make sure the products they're using are CE approved and licensed in the UK.
