Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers – As we get older our production of collagen, elastic tissue and hyaluronic acid decreases and so our skin can lose volume and lines can appear. Our natural fat pads in the face diminish and coupled with years of sun exposure, lifestyle factors and gravity, we show the tell-tale signs of ageing.

Every client is unique and at London Harley Street Aesthetic Doctors, our practitioners are experts in all aspects of dermal fillers and are accredited international trainers for basic, intermediate and advanced techniques. We believe that filler treatments are just as much an art as a medical treatment and our practitioners have an eye for the best possible treatment for each individual client.
Fillers can be used to volumise, shape, rejuvenate or smooth the skin on the face, hands, décolletage and anywhere else on the body. The most common areas we treat are the cheeks, nasolabial lines (nose to mouth), marionette lines (below the mouth), lips , tear trough and jowls. There are different fillers depending upon the area to be treated, ranging from hydrating fillers which are perfect for the décolletage, smooth fillers ideal for the lips or denser fillers for volumising which are most suitable for the cheeks. Often, a combination of areas and fillers are used to achieve the perfect result.
We believe when it comes to creating the perfect look, less is most definitely more and you can rest assured we won’t create any trout pouts or overdone treatments.
Using a tiny needle, the filler product is injected into the skin or just below it depending on the area being treated. The filler plumps up the layers of skin immediately beneath the area and the result is an instant filling-out effect so that the skin is smoother, less wrinkled and more youthful.
We only use fillers with a proven track record for safety and so you can be assured that they are perfectly safe. Treatment is not recommended in pregnant or breast-feeding women and those with active skin infections such as cold sores.
The injections may sting and can be slightly painful but many people experience only mild discomfort. Anaesthetic creams or injections are often used. Our usual practice is to combine the filler material with local anaesthetic so just the area that needs to be treated is numbed and discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum.
Since the products are hypoallergenic gels, allergic reactions are extremely rare. Side effects are uncommon but can occur, and include bruising, tenderness, reddening, and occasionally itching. There is usually a little swelling immediately after treatment but in most cases it is very mild. If any of these do occur they usually settle within a few days. Bruising can sometimes be significant and last more than a week, it is best to avoid anti-inflammatories (aspirin, ibuprofen) for at least 7 days before treatment, unless these have been prescribed for a medical indication. Alcohol within the previous 24 hours can also increase the risk of bruising. Treatments are only carried out after a full medical history has been undertaken.
The treatment will usually take about 30 minutes to perform and the results appear instantly. You can carry on with your normal life immediately after treatment. The product is broken down slowly by the body and so the results typically last between 6 months and a year, depending on the particular filler used with some fillers lasting considerably longer. After this time you can choose whether to have more treatment to maintain the effect.
You should avoid touching the treated area for 6 hours after injection, and avoid applying make-up for the same period. You should expect the area to be a little swollen after treatment but this usually settles within a day or two. Bruising may occur and sometimes takes a couple of days to develop and a week or so to resolve. We recommend ice packs if there is some swelling or inflammation post-treatment and painkillers if required.
