The natural process of ageing includes volume tissue loss, skin laxity, reduction of fat cells, loss of moisture and reduced collagen production, all of which can be greatly improved with the use of dermal fillers.

Collagen and elastin fibres break down with age, resulting in deep lines and folds, sagging effects, and loss of dynamic contours.

Dermal fillers can replace lost volume and contour shape in the:

  • Mid face cheek and cheekbone area
  • Marionette/jowl area
  • Nose bridge/ shaping/ straightening.
  • Other areas that can be treated include chin re-balancing, temporal hollowing, scar improvement, tear trough and eyebrow sculpting/ lifting. Treatments involving dermal fillers are very individual and tailored to the patient following a thorough assessment and evaluation completed during the consultation.

Aesthetic results from dermal fillers can vary as individuals can break down the products at different rates for different reasons including age, medical conditions and varying body metabolisms. The average individual will maintain aesthetic results from dermal fillers for an average of 8-18 months.

Lip Augmentation/ Enhancement

Research increasingly identifies that there are certain characteristics associated with the lips that we consider beautiful, including natural looking fullness, well defined borders, and a soft smooth appearance.

Injection of botox lipsAs we age the lips tend to become thinner, flatter and the loss and lengthening of the philtrum (area between nose and lips) becomes noticeable. These effects can be extremely ageing, especially to the female face, therefore maintenance of the lips as a feature is greatly recommended. Enhancing upper and lower lips adds a natural looking fullness and balance to the body of the lip, whilst placing filler in the border of the lip provides a crisp, well defined shape that improves contour and definition.

Dermal filler in the lips will improve texture and surrounding fine lines, resulting in softer, smoother looking lips with collagen stimulation to keep lips looking fuller for longer.

Top 5 FAQ’s for Dermal Fillers

How long will the effects last?

An exact time for the longevity of the effects of filler can depend on many varying factors including age, medical status, product quality, product amount and product placement. As dermal filler stimulates the collagenesis process then results should continue to be seen for a long period of time following treatment.

What is the main ingredients in dermal filler?

There are different types of dermal filler, however a hyaluronic acid based product is a common choice of product as it gives a nice smooth versatile effect in the soft tissue and has the safety of being reversible if required.

I have had previous filler some years ago is it ok to have more in the same area?

Having dermal filler in the same area can be at the discretion of your practitioner. Previous treatment details including product placement, type and amount need to be taken into consideration.

Can I have a reaction to dermal filler?

It is extremely rare to react to hyaluronic acid based products with very little incidences occurring.

What if I don't like the results?

Hyaluronic acid based dermal filler can be dissolved using a medication called Hyalase. It is very rare that this is used due to a patient not liking their results as, if a thorough consultation has taken place, then expected results should be seen.
