Am I suitable for a dermal filler treatment?
Dermal fillers have become increasingly popular in recent years. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin's composition, providing youthful plumpness. However, as we age, our levels of hyaluronic acid begin to deplete, causing a loss of volume in the mid-face. Temporary hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have a very good safety record and are suitable for most men and women suffering from the visible signs of facial ageing.
What happens during a dermal filler treatment?
A numbing cream is applied to prepare the treatment area prior to injection and there is a certain amount of local anaesthetic in the hyaluronic acid dermal filler which will reduce any discomfort. We will then deliver small amounts of the dermal filler through a very fine needle to achieve a natural and beautiful enhancement.
Are there any risks associated with a dermal filler treatment?
There may be a small amount of redness and swelling at the injection site, but this should subside quickly. Although minimally invasive, there are certain risks that you should be aware of before you proceed. Bruising, asymmetry and infection are all possible complications, but rarely occur.
What results can I expect from a dermal filler treatment?
Restoring facial volume in the cheeks and also around the temple area produces a highly effective rejuvenation to the face. Full, high cheeks are a sign of youth, but as you age the cheeks can become sunken, producing a squarer appearance to the face, but dermal fillers can restore cheek fullness. This produces a subtle lifting effect, improving the lines between the nose and mouth, known as the nasolabial folds, and also restoring definition to the jawline. The results of your dermal filler treatment are immediate. They can also be used to fill folds, treat scarring and restore volume to other areas such as the lips.
Can I have a repeat dermal filler treatment?
Recent advances in the manufacturing of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers has increased the longevity of the results, but typically they last between 12 to 24 months, depending on the area treated and the patient's individual response. Patients are usually highly satisfied with the results of the volumising dermal filler treatment and undergo follow-up treatments to maintain results. Dermal fillers can also be combined with other aesthetic treatments for optimal skin rejuvenation.

A key component in the ageing process has now been identified; volume loss combined with increased skin laxity in the mid-face results in hollows under the eyes, sunken cheeks and marked folds between the nose and mouth. Dermal fillers can now provide re-volumisation of the mid-face area, restoring a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
