At our clinic, dermal fillers are injected into your skin to soften lines, folds and wrinkles and to also give volume to areas which have lost their support. Dermal fillers can also be used for facial re-contouring to improve facial features and profiles.

Most types of dermal filler are composed of Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid naturally exists within the skin and it absorbs water giving volume, shape, hydration and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid has minimal risk of reactions and is more readily accepted by the body than other silicone or collagen fillers.

For certain dermal filler procedures topical anaesthetic is first applied and left to numb the skin for 20-30 minutes. A numbing injection can be given to numb the area further although this is rarely required.

The dermal filler is injected into the area required using a very fine needle. Results can be seen immediately after dermal filler treatments and generally last up to 12 months or longer.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat different areas of the face, including

  • The Lips
  • Chin
  • Jaw
  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Nose

And are ideal for dealing with specific issues such as loss of volume, deep lines, tear troughs, and jowls. Some methods are more appropriate for some people than others. Dr Lucy Glancey takes care to assess this and discuss it with you.
