This is injectable biocompatible hyaluronic acid gel, which is a naturally occurring substance.
Hylauronic acid is naturally produced in the skin, giving it that full appearance of younger skin. Unfortunately as we age , our skin's ability to produce it dwindles.
When injected under the skin, hylauronic acid combines with water to enhance the smoothness of deep lines caused by aging, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
My clients use dermal filler for a varity of reason but all love the instant refreshing, restoring and revuventating effect.
There are many areas where dermal filler - cheek enhancment, lip augmentation, lip lines/smokers lines, nasolabial folds, marrionette lines and many more.
Some clients have come to me prior to dermal filler with a fear of looking fake or over done. I spend time discussing treatment, products, techniques and approaches to treatment, answer all their questions and make a full treatment plan if dermal filler is the right treatment and they have felt reassued aswell as delighted with their results.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal filler is an injectable product that, as the name suggests, fills the lines making them appear smoother. The results are instant and last approximately a year.
How does it work?
It is injectable biocompatible hyaluronic acid gel, which is a naturally occurring substance. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the skin giving it that full appearance of young skin, but unfortunately as we age, our skin’s ability to produce it dwindles. When injected under the skin, hyaluronic acid combines with water to enhance the smoothness of deeper lines caused by ageing, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Is it safe?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced naturally, so allergy is very rare. Side effects can result in bruising, inflammation, lumps and redness – although these symptoms are mild and temporary. You will be given advice to minimise the risks of these in your aftercare.
What happens during the treatment?
The procedure starts with a local anaesthetic cream which is applied to the area to be treated. It can take 30 minutes for this to take effect. The area is then cleaned, and a fine, short needle is used to administer the hyaluronic acid gel. You may feel some mild discomfort for the first injection, but the gel has anaesthetic within it to reduce any pain. The product will be massaged under the skin to ensure smooth and even results. After treatment, arnica gel is applied to reduce bruising and aftercare advice will be given. You can return to your day to day activities immediately after treatment.
