Fillers, or dermal fillers, are a non-surgical, non-invasive injectable treatment, designed to add volume to the skin.

Dermal fillers can be injected into the skin in order to plump it up resulting in a younger, healthier look.

Anti-ageing treatment, replenishing lost volume by reducing the visibility of wrinkles and smoothing out deeper creases or facial hollows e.g. nose to mouth lines, hollow cheeks

Facial reshaping treatment, using the careful addition of volume to rebalance features, making the face more aesthetically pleasing e.g. sculpting a more prominent chin, straightening the appearance of the nose

How do fillers work?

Our collagen stocks diminish as we age, and this is why wrinkles, folds and creases begin to emerge. In general, dermal fillers work to plump up the skin to effectively reduce the visibility of wrinkles and reshape facial contours.

They work by replenishing the levels of hyaluronic acid in the dermis layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance which is found naturally in the dermis of the skin. It has incredible water retention properties and therefore can add volume to the skin in a very safe and effective way which mimics how the hyaluronic acid found naturally within the skin works.

Who are fillers for?

While dermal fillers are most commonly used to plump up and reshape women’s lips, they have many uses in cosmetic surgery. Men and women frequently turn to dermal fillers to reduce the visibility of wrinkles and other signs of ageing, and even younger patients may seek out out the treatment for stress lines and acne scars.

What are facial fillers?

Facial fillers are cosmetic tools such as hyaluronic acid, and collagen that assist in reducing wrinkles, augmenting lips, rejuvenate skin, raise scar depressions, and replace volume loss in the soft tissues of a patient’s face. They are mainly used for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. They can offer temporary or more long-lasting results and are administered through the use of small injections.lick edit button to change this text.

How long will the procedure take?

For most patients, the facial filler injection process takes roughly 10 to 20 minutes. The exact timeframe will be contingent upon the individual and how many facial imperfections are being addressed. If the individual is only working to restore a small number of wrinkles or issues, the length of the procedure will be shorter. When a filler treatment is chosen, a set of small injections under the surface of the skin will be performed and the amount administered will depend on what brand of filler is being used and how large the crease, depression, or wrinkle is.

What type of results can I expect?

Most facial filler injections will provide results that last a few months and some up to a year. Each brand will offer slightly different results and may last longer or shorter than the others. Using these treatments in combination with additional cosmetic and skin restorative treatments is frequently encouraged. Dermal facial injections do not necessitate a long recovery time and patients should able to return to work or other activities as soon as the injection process is completed. For the first 24-hours, patients may have to avoid excessive activity as well as exposure to the sun and heat to allow the skin to heal. There can also be some light bruising, tenderness, redness, or numbness at the injection site.
