Dermal Fillers are injections used to restore lost volume to the face and smooth out lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to contour and add definition to the cheek bones, forehead, temple area, nose, chin, jaw line, lips and brows. We use temporary (HA) Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin.
The injection process takes 20-30 minutes, you will also need to allow time to have your consultation. A complimentary review appointment is included 2-4 weeks post treatment.
The treatment results are immediate, and you will see a difference as soon as your appointment is finished.
The majority of patients find the treatment results last up to 12-18 months. Treatment results will depend on a number of factors.
The Juvéderm range contains 0.3% lidocaine to allow for a comfortable treatment experience.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What makes the Juvederm Ultra range of products so special?
The Juvederm range of products is the only line of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers that offers customisable results proven to last up to 12 months. It is currently the only HA filler to include an anaesthetic that makes the experience more comfortable for you. It is also very smooth and natural looking, meaning that although people may notice a difference, they won’t know you have had anything done!
Q: What exactly is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluroic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin. Natural Hyaluronic Acid is broken own by the body in one or two days so is constantly replaced – as we age this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturising and plumping effects of Hyaluronic Acid decrease. Hyaluronic Acid is used for aesthetic treatments, and has been used by doctors for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as eye surgery.
Q: How long is an appointment?
The injection process takes 20-30 minutes, you will also need to allow time to discuss what you are hoping to achieve with your medical practitioner before treatment. Allow 45 minutes for a consultation and treatment.

Post Treatment Advice
Dermal Fillers Aftercare Instructions
Immediately after the treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The is temporary and generally disappears in a day or two. If this continues or if any other reactions occur, please contact the practice.
If you are having lip treatment the initial swelling may last longer. It can last for a few weeks and the lips may look somewhat uneven during this time, therefore, the result directly after this treatment should not be seen as the final result.
Avoid touching the treated area within 6 hours following treatment. After that, light make-up can be applied and the area can be gently washed with soap and water.
Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. Solarium and Sunbathing) or extreme cold.
If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores.
If you are using aspirin or any similar medication, be aware that these may increase the bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
