Dermal Filler Treatment in Buckinghamshire

  • What are Dermal Fillers?

    Dermal fillers are a gel substance that is injected into the skin to lift and soften lines and wrinkles.

    I only use clinically safe, “Gold Standard” fillers that are mostly made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in our skin. They promote collagen and elastin rejuvenation, leaving the skin with a more youthful appearance.

Common uses of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used as an anti-ageing treatment in various areas on the face to replace lost volume, add extra volume and soften fine lines and wrinkles.

The injection of hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate the treated area as well as temporarily increase collagen production within the skin.

Dermal Fillers frequently asked questions

What results can I expect?

The results are immediate however it can take up to two weeks for the full effects to be visible.

Results can vary depending on the product used, area treated, the skin quality and age of the patient. The hyaluronic acid fillers used are not permanent and generally last between four to eighteen months.

Are there any Side Effects?

As with all medication unwanted side effects can occur.

It is expected that a slight discomfort will occur at the time of injection and that there is the possibility of redness, itching, swelling, bruising and/or tenderness after the injection; these should resolve within a couple of hours and up to a few days. Injections to the lip area may take slightly longer to settle.

Other potential side effects include infection, hypersensitive reaction, vessel occlusion, abscess formation and granuloma; however these side effects are not common.
