Fillers are used to restore facial shape and volume loss. They lift and tighten the skin and can also be used to soften lines, wrinkles and folds.
What results can I expect?
Depending on the treatment, a younger appearance with improved contours and/or a reduction in fine lines and folds. Results vary between individuals based on genetics and metabolism but typically last 9-12 months.
How do they work?
Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body although the amount we store reduces as we age and this causes the appearance of wrinkles, folds and sagging skin. Fillers replace the lost hyaluronic acid to restore volume and shape.
Is the treatment painful?
Fillers are injected with tiny needles and contain a local anaesthetic so that the treatments are relatively pain free, although some areas may be more sensitive than others.
Are there side effects?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are safe and serious side effects are rare. There may be some redness, swelling and bruising but these tend to be mild. There is a risk of infection, but this is very rare.
How much do Fillers cost?
Consultations are free and treatments cost from £200
