What are Dermal Fillers?
Fillers are treatments for wrinkles and facial lines. A dermal filler
is a smooth gel that is injected into the skin to plump it up, making it
firmer and “fill out” facial lines. Fillers can be used on:
- Nose to Mouth Grooves
- Smokers Lines
- Sad or Angry Lines
- Thin Lips
- Deep Frawn Lines
- Chin Volume
- Cheekbone Volume
The actual treatment takes from 15 to 45 minutes depending on which areas are being treated. Beforehand your medical aesthetic practitioner will use a topical anaesthetic cream or dental anaesthetics to numb the area so that you should feel minimal discomfort. We will then inject tiny quantities of the dermal filler using a fine needle, under the surface of the skin. After the injection, your medical aesthetic practitioner will smooth the product down in your skin by massaging the treated area.
results are instant! You may be a little red and swollen in the area
that has just been injected, however this only lasts for a very short
time ( 1-2 days at most).

- Don’t drink anything too hot or too cold ( if you have had lip treatment)
