What Are Dermal Fillers?
Administered via injection, dermal fillers are used to fill-out creases and wrinkles within the skin to produce a younger, smoother appearance.
Whilst most commonly used in the lip and cheek areas, dermal fillers can produce a range of youthful benefits for multiple facial points, including:
• Lifting of the cheeks
• Re-defining the jawline
• Plumping the lips
• Reducing the appearance of mouth lines (marionette lines)
Typically, dermal fillers aren’t permanent. So, to maintain your desired look on a long-term basis, top-ups will be needed once the results begin to fade.
One of the most common types of dermal fillers are collagen-based fillers; these generally last 3 – 4 months. Hyaluronic acid fillers last a little longer at 4 – 6 months, and calcium hydroxylapatite can last up to an impressive 18 months.
The type of dermal filler used will vary significantly dependent on the areas you wish to be treated. Typically, the more temporary the filler is the safer the procedure is considered to be – but all available fillers will be discussed with you upon consultation.

What Can I Expect?
Different fillers work best in different areas.
So, before treatment actually begins, you’re able to discuss your exact requirements with an experienced practitioner to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved.
Due to the ultra-fine needle we use to inject, it’s unlikely you’ll feel much pain. But, if you’re worried, we’ll apply a local anaesthetic or numbing cream for maximum comfort.
How long will results last?
Results will be visible almost immediately after treatment. During the first couple of days after the procedure you may experience minor bruising and swelling, especially if your lips are being treated due to the incredibly high blood supply in that area.
However, any side-effects you experience will subside within a mere couple of days, resulting in your desired look with no harm or damage caused.
Unfortunately, dermal fillers aren’t permanent as they’re biodegradable. This means that the body will slowly metabolise them, causing the treatment area to revert back to its original form.
So, when results begin to fade, we suggest booking a top-up appointment as soon as possible to ensure you consistently maintain your desired look.
