Dermal Fillers & Juivderm Ultra

Dermal Fillers and Juvéderm Ultra

What are Dermal Fillers and how do they work?

As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and moisture as our natural collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decline. Sunlight, smoking, alcohol, stress and sleep deprivation can all hasten this natural ageing process.

Dermal fillers are non- permanent, injectable, hyaluronic acid based gels that reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkle whilst boosting the skins moisture levels. They can be used to create instant volume and contour.

In our practice we use Juvéderm® ULTRA Dermal Fillers which are the latest generation of dermal fillers from ALLERGAN, a world leader in surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products. It’s a natural, non-animal based, biodegradable gel that flows easily into your skin, instantly filling out those troublesome lines leaving a smooth and natural look and feel. So, you’ll notice an immediate difference after just one treatment. The Juvéderm® family of products last longer than other formulas-at least 9 months due to the unique way they are made.


How is the treatment carried out?

For your comfort all our filler treatments (which involve injecting the filler gel into the dermis of the skin) are carried out under local anaesthetic and take about 20-30 minutes.


How soon will I see the results?

The results are seen instantly and last for approximately 9 months


What areas can be treated?

Dermal Fillers are most commonly used to treat the following areas:
The Lips:
Fillers can be used to create definition and volume and reduce lines at the corners of the mouth, creating a more youthful look.
Smokers Lines:
These are the vertical creases that develop between the nose and the upper lip
Naso-labial folds:
These are the deep cheek folds that run from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth. Fillers give a fantastic, instant result in the treatment of these areas.
Facial lines and wrinkles:
Fillers can be used to smooth out such imperfections on most areas of the face including fine lines and wrinkles around the nose, mouth and forehead.
