Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a non-invasive cosmetic injectables treatment used to reduce wrinkles, while simultaneously restoring volume and plumpness to targeted areas of the face. Often used for facial rejuvenation, dermal fillers restore natural facial contours of areas prone to skin volume loss during the natural ageing process, including lips and cheek.

Placed in key areas, dermal fillers are injectable gels that restore volume in most areas of the face to instantly refresh your appearance. Replicating the sugar molecule in our skin that naturally declines as we age, dermal fillers attract moisture to the affected areas filling out lines and restoring firmness to your skin.

The dermal filler procedure typically takes between 15-45 minutes and creates instant, noticeable effects that can last for 6-18 months depending on the area treated and product of choice. Once the treatment is complete the patient can continue on with their day.

Lip Fillers

Lip fillers are used to restore the vitality and youthful appearance of the mouth area, enabling a fuller and plumper lip appearance. They can effectively delay the visual effects of aging by restoring volume lost over time, or help you achieve a specific look.

Common Questions

Typically, dermal fillers last for anywhere between 6-18 months and in some cases longer depending on how long the body metabolises the product. There is no guaranteed longevity timeframe as a myriad of factors can influence the results.

Following a consultation, the lips are numbed using a topical cream, which ensures you feel minimal pain while receiving the lip injections. Your lips and mouth may be numb from the cream following your treatment, and you may also experience some mild discomfort or fullness in the first few hours. However, most of our patients can return to work immediately after receiving lip injections.

Dermal Filler results are visible straight away, however results are best 1-2 weeks after swelling has subsided. You may experience some swelling and bruising for approximately 5-7 days post treatment. This is completely normal and applying an icepack to the area can assist in the reduction of this.

 Lumps and bumps are also common after being treated whilst the filler is settling into the tissue and is important to attend a follow up appointment 2-4 weeks post treatment to ensure the filler is integrating into your tissue.
