Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers restore lost volume and smooth out wrinkles. Over time, dermal fillers can begin to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and elastin to generate a long lasting effect. We stock the highest quality fillers that are safe and long lasting. These include Juvederm, Perfectha, Radiesse, Profhilo and Teosyal. The skin condition and area to be treated will largely dictate the filler we use.

As we age, the level of hyaluronic acid in our skin depletes and fat redistributes. This causes the skin to lose volume and begin to sag, creating wrinkles.

Dermal fillers are traditionally used to plump an area in which volume has been lost, for example the cheeks or lips. The hyaluronic acid in the dermal filler binds to water and create a ‘plumping’ effect. Having fillers actually puts back the lost hyaluronic acid into your skin, stimulates the collagen and strengthens the elastin fibres making the skin look wow and youthful again. We will work with you to create the look you are searching for.

Naturally-derived fillers (the most widely known is hyaluronic acid) have a much smaller risk of causing an allergic reaction but reactions can occur. Results are immediate but will only last from just three to 18 months (occasionally up to two years) because the filler eventually breaks down, taking the results, for better or worse, with it. Once the filler starts to dissipate you need to go back in and get more filler injected to maintain results. Most people who get fillers will need at least one follow-up injection within a year.

Aside from allergic reactions, fillers also have risks of lumping and migration, although this happens infrequently. On the other hand, because the results last a short period of time so do the potential problems.
