Dermal Fillers

Dermal Filler

Dermal Fillers are used to restore facial volume, soften lines and folds and enhance the lips. Made from a hyaluronic acid gel, they are an efficient anti-ageing treatment to restore youthfulness, refresh the face, lift sagging features and plump out depleted areas. At our beautiful Cheltenham clinic, we pride ourselves on providing treatments that make you look refreshed, without it being obvious to others. 

Dermal fillers can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Lips- to add volume, shape, balance and correct asymmetry

  • Peri-oral lines- known as smokers lines

  • Cheeks

  • Marionette lines and jowls

  • Nasolabial folds

  • Chin- to balance the profile or make it more masculine or feminine

  • Fine lines and deep wrinkles

  • Sad mouth correction

How does dermal filler work?





We use dermal fillers that are made from hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in our skin, eyes and joints and provides moisture and lubrication. It is a hydrophilic molecule, this means it attracts water, up to 1000 times it's own weight. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid filler will attract water to the area which can reduce the depth and visibility of fine lines, wrinkles and folds, and plump the treatment area. The skin in the treated area will appear healthier and more hydrated.  Results are instant, but can continue to improve for several weeks after treatment. 

How long does dermal filler last? 

There are many variables involved in breaking down filler. The brand and type of filler used, the area of the face and the patient's anatomy and lifestyle. Here's a guide based on the brands we use in clinic:

Lip filler can last 9-12 months

Cheek filler can last 12-18 months

Smokers lines filler can last 6-8 months

Jawline filler can last 12-18 months. 

Is having filler painful?

Some mild discomfort is to be expected. Numbing cream is applied to sensitive areas such as the lips. We try hard to make any injectable procedure as comfortable as possible for our patients by using very small needles and ice packs where necessary.
