Dermal Fillers are made of up of Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin that gives it volume, shape, hydration and elasticity. As we age, levels of hyaluronic acid decrease and the skin begins to lose its firmness and fullness. Dermal Fillers are a quick and effective way to re-volumise the face and reduce wrinkles, producing a more youthful appearance.
Fillers can also be administered into the lips to enhance the contours and add volume as well as provide definition to the cheeks, chin and nose.
The fillers provide volume to the skin thus plumping it out and creating a smooth wrinkle free appearance. They also help to fill out moderate to severe folds and lines in the skin that occur with ageing.
Small quantities of the filler gel are injected superficially using a fine needle into the areas of the face where there are wrinkles and lines. A local anaesthetic cream may be used to help reduce discomfort.
There may be minimal discomfort experienced, however, this can be eased using anaesthetic which can be present in the filler itself or can be applied topically in some areas.
Following treatment results are instant, and the skin is left looking smoother and younger. Most patients only require 1 treatment and results typically last 9-12 months. At MySkyn Clinic we offer a follow-up consultation for all our patients at 2 weeks to ensure desired results have been achieved and if required, additional top-up treatments can be provided. Top-up treatments may incur additional charges.
Our ethos at MySkyn Clinic is less is more and we will always strive to ensure your end-result not only looks subtle but compliments your natural features. We will only use the best quality dermal fillers that comply with European standard and regulation, and ensure each treatment is suited to your individual need.

Radiesse is a calcium-based filler that is also indiscernible from natural tissue once it’s injected, with results easily last up to a year.
