Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, commonly used to improve facial irregularities, such as thin lips and sunken cheeks. They are injectable products made from a substance called Hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in the skin. HA helps to add volume and hydration to skin by binding water molecules and therefore dermal fillers are helpful in correcting lines and wrinkles as well as providing natural volume for facial contours.
What does a dermal filler treatment involve?
Depending on the treatment involved dermal fillers can take between 20 minutes (e.g lip) to one hour (e.g non-surgical facelift). The products we use contain anaesthetic so they are relatively painless, however also use a numbing cream for particularly sensitive areas. Before and after photos will be taken for your medical notes and we provide an after-care advice leaflet following your treatment.
