Dermal Fillers Overview

Dermal filler is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that already exists in our skin. The sugar-based protein acts as a sponge attracting water- giving treated areas a fuller plumper look. Over time, we develop creases, folds and sunken areas in our skin. Dermal fillers are perfect to help rejuvenate your skin with volume as well as accentuate natural contours.

PRODUCT : Dermal Filler
ANAESTHETIC : Part of Treatment
DURATION : 20 Minutes
RECOVERY : Immediate
RESULTS LAST : 6 - 12 Months

How do dermal filler treatments work?

The process involves inserting the filler using a fine needle just under the surface of your skin into the deprived areas. You decide which areas you think need work and your aesthetic practitioner will also give their input. It is a quick procedure, lasting no more than 30 minutes, with little recovery time. The effects last up to 12 months, after which the filler is resorbed naturally by your body.

Dermal filler areas

Find more detailed information, before & afters and videos on the specific areas in the treatment guides below:

Nasolabial Folds

Nasolabial Folds

These are lines that appear from the corners of the mouth to the nose. Filler in these areas help reduce the presence of these lines giving a more youthful look.

Tear Roughs

Tear Troughs

Over time we lose volume in the skin under our eyes giving rise to hollow areas. These give rise to dark circles. Filler injected hear will help counter the shadows created.

cheeks

Cheeks

Fillers in the cheeks can provide a more fuller and defined look, giving that desired V shape for the face. Filler in this area helps lift the face whilst giving the added benefit of also helping to hide nasolabial folds.

Marionette Lines

Marionette Lines

These lines run from the corners of the mouth to the chin. These lines become more prominent as we age.

Applying filler in the chin can give it more definition and fullness. It can also help provide a more proportionate face for those of you who have a smaller chin respective to the rest of your face.

Jawline

Fillers can be used to help give you a more chiselled and defined jawline. Very popular for both women and men.

Vascular compromise

It is important to seek urgent medical attention if you develop moderate-severe pain, develop a grey/blue discolouration of your skin in the minutes/hours after treatment, or notice loss of vision as this can indicate vascular compromise and needs urgent review to dissolve the filler using Hyaluronidase.

All practitioners will come to every appointment with the necessary safety equipment to deal with any complications. If any queries regarding your treatment do arise, you can contact your practitioner using the e-consultation service or directly as they will leave their contact details with you.

I had my first filler experience with dr Joshua Van der Aa and I couldn’t have had a better doctor. I was a bit scared but he made me feel really comfortable. He gives the best advice and he clearly knows what he is doing.

Was of the highest standard of professionalism regarding administrating that treatment that I have ever experienced, and you are worth every penny just having that peace of mind. It was also really kind of you to take your time with me to and I hope I did not take up too much of your time.

I like to look my best but no amount of exercise or diet would help reduce my deep nasolabial lines. I was looking for a practioner I could trust. Thank goodness I found Dr Roddha who did a fantastic job from start to finish.

I have been having BTX done with Dr Roohi for over a year. I was really nervous when I went for the first time but she soon put me at ease, taking time to understand what I wanted to achieve. The treatment is always painless and I am extremely pleased with the result.
