Published on: 04/22/20 12:13 PM


Fillers are extremely popular, and nowadays, they are more readily available. This blog is our guide to dermal fillers, and we’ll tell you all you need to know and some of the reasons why you might want them.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections used in the lips and face to fill lines and wrinkles. Dermal filler can be used to add volume to areas such as the lips and cheeks. Fillers are not permanent, and they generally last between 6 and 18 months.

The length of time that they last depends on the brand of the injection that has been used and personal factors. These hyaluronic acid fillers can last longer with great aftercare, some people can benefit for up to two years. Our therapists will advise you on how to care for yourself after having HA filler injections.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that can be used to reduce facial wrinkles and restore volume.

At the age of 25, our bodies produce less natural collagen, which can lead to the skin losing elasticity. Collagen production helps to keep the skin elastic and youthful. Many people are now turning to dermal fillers to give their skin a boost and add volume to various areas of the face.

Dermal fillers can be injected into the face, lips and hands. Read our blog on the best dermal filler benefits.

Many people get dermal fillers in their faces to achieve a younger complexion by reducing deep lines and wrinkles. Facial fillers can often be used to reduce nasolabial folds, marionette lines and under the eyes to reduce dark circles. HA fillers work by adding more volume. We can help you to achieve a natural appearance by assessing your facial anatomy.


Dermal fillers in the hands are used to reduce signs of ageing, such as our veins becoming more prominent. Due to the skin on our hands becoming thinner with age, fillers work to enhance the volume in our hands, restoring a youthful appearance.


Lip fillers are generally used by individuals that have naturally thinner lips, dermal fillers can give the lips more volume and enhance your facial features. Hyaluronic acid filler treatments can only be used by those over 18. We’ll help you to achieve a subtle fullness.
