Dermal Fillers

Some of the best non-surgical face treatments in London.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are natural or synthetic gels that can be injected into the skin to lift and add volume to the soft tissue, thereby improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Most dermal fillers are produced by combining hyaluronic acid (HA) with proteins to create a clear, sterile substance that can be injected. HA is naturally found in the skin and all soft tissues of the body. It attracts and binds water to increase soft tissue volume and hydration. The amount of HA our bodies produce ultimately decreases with age.

What can dermal fillers be used to treat?

Dermal fillers are ideal for treating many areas of the face, including nasio-labial (nose to mouth) lines and marionette (mouth to chin) lines. Dermal fillers can also increase the volume of the cheeks for a plumper, more youthful appearance.

Am I suitable for treatment with dermal fillers?

Most patients can be treated with dermal fillers. However, our team of highly skilled dental professionals will conduct a thorough assessment of your medical history to confirm your suitability. You cannot undergo treatment with dermal fillers if you are:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Allergic to the filler or lidocaine combined with the filler
  • Suffering from an active infection at the site that is to be injected
  • Taking blood thinning medication, due to the increased risk of bleeding and bruising

Are dermal fillers painful?

Many dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic that can minimise discomfort, but we also apply cream to numb the skin that will be treated. The overall procedure is not typically painful, but it can be mildly uncomfortable in some cases. Don’t worry – this is usually temporary.

What can I expect from the appointment?

We will arrange your consultation with Dr James Littler, who is highly experienced in delivering a wide range of facial aesthetic treatments. During this consultation, you will need to fill out a medical form and photographs of your face will be taken. James will take the time to discuss your aesthetic goals with you and how realistic this will be to achieve. Once the procedure has been explained to you, you will have the opportunity to raise any queries. We will then ask you to sign a consent form, which will enable us to proceed with treatment.

Your skin will be cleansed using antiseptic wipes, before James injects the filler under the skin in the desired area. The treatment area will be thoroughly massaged to spread the filler evenly.

How long will it take for treatment to work, and how long does it last?

Following treatment, results are immediately noticeable. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled two weeks after the procedure to evaluate the overall result and determine whether further treatment is necessary. The procedure can be repeated as and when required, but visible correction typically lasts between 6 months to a year after the initial treatment.

What should I do after I’ve had dermal fillers?

You should avoid:

  • Touching the treated area for at least 6 hours
  • Exposing yourself to extreme temperatures from steam rooms, saunas and UV light, which should resolve any swelling that is apparent
  • Consuming any non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. aspirin, ibuprofen) for at least 24 hours

Sterile concealer or mineral make-up can be applied immediately.

Are there any side effects of dermal fillers?

Post-treatment swelling, redness, bruising and itching is possible, but these side effects usually subside after 2 to 4 days.

What is the price of treatment with dermal fillers?

The cost of treatment with dermal fillers starts from:

  • £285 for lip enhancements
  • £285 for lip to chin lines/creases
  • £395 for cheekbone enhancements
  • £695 for 8-point face lift

The cost of treatment for tear troughs using dermal fillers is £595.
