  • What are dermal fillers?

    Dermal fillers are soft tissue or tissue-like materials which are used to fill up and correct creases, lines, wrinkles, dimples, indentations, depressions and hollows on the face but they could be anywhere else in the body. Therefore, the main aim of dermal fillers injections is to return the skin surface to its original level, making skin to look even, normal, youthful and beautiful. Dermal fillers are safe and effective and dermal fillers are given by fine needle injection with little or no pain.
  • How do dermal fillers improve wrinkles and lines?

    Although the process of ageing is complex, volume loss is one of the prime factors of aging skin. Therefore, as we age, the skin loses some of its supporting tissues and scaffolding and wrinkles and folds appear on the skin. Dermal fillers are usually injected under the skin, to reverse the volume loss and support the skin resulting in a natural lift and tightening of the overlying skin. Dermal fillers may also add a youthful appearance to the skin.
  • How long do dermal fillers take to be placed in the body?

    The time it takes to inject a dermal filler depends on the amount of dermal filler being used, type of dermal filler and the site of injection. Restylane 1ml costs 200 Pounds and takes about 30 minutes. You can contact us for a quotation. Please also see our general price policy and our dermal filler prices.
  • How long do dermal fillers effects last?

    The longevity of any dermal filler depends on the type of dermal filler, the area of the face or the body where the filler is placed, the quality of the filler and the metabolic speed of the person who has received the filler. However, it is known that areas of extreme motion such as lips, the dermal fillers will not last as long as dermal fillers in a more immobile area such as cheeks and chin. The type of the dermal filler is also important for example hyarulonic acid based dermal fillers last 6 months or more and Radiesse and Sculptra last more than a year and Aquamid several years and fat transfer on apermanent basis.

  • Who is injecting dermal fillers in your clinic?

    We highly value doctor-patient relationships. At Doctors Makeover, our cosmetic surgery clinic, our trained and highly qualified doctors who are Fellows of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) or/and specialist plastic surgeons and fully registered with the GMC in the United Kingdom will give your dermal filler, after a consultation.
  • What are the major differences between the various dermal fillers?

    It is estimated that there are about 120 different dermal fillers in the UK market and generally speaking, the main ingredient of the most popular dermal fillers is; hyaluronic acid, collagen, poly lactic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite and polyacrylamides. Hyaluronic acid and collagens are natural constituents of the skin but other dermal filler products are artificial materials. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are non-animal materials which are obtained from bacteria and they absorb water (hydrophilic). There is almost no risk of allergy and studies showed that hyaluronic acid dermal fillers last longer than collagen dermal fillers because hyaluronic acid dermal filler draw in water into its molecule/structure and the volume is retained longer. Several studies have shown hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are safe and effective facial dermal fillers and they come in different particle sizes and consistencies. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are sterile, non-infective, clear colourless gels with different molecule sizes which as a general rule, the low molecule hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are injected superficially and large molecule hyaluronic acid dermal fillers injected deeper in the tissues under the skin. Some of the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic and are  suppose to cause less pain when they are injected.
  • How do you divide dermal fillers on their longevity?

    Generally, dermal fillers can also be categorised into non-permanent and semi-permanent/permanent dermal fillers and can be grouped into synthetic and natural occurring according to their source of origin. Dermal fillers can also be sorted out by their chemical nature structure. According to this classification non-permanent dermal fillers are absorbed slowly in the body over the course of several months but semi-permanent/permanent dermal fillers are non-absorbable and they have a long lasting effect. However, non-permanent and absorbable dermal fillers are more popular in the United Kingdom because this group of dermal fillers have less side-effects than permanent or non-absorbable dermal fillers.
  • What are the permanent dermal fillers?

    Increasingly autologous fat transfer becoming popular because your own fat would be used as a filler and the fat is free and belongs to the same person it means that there is no risk of allergy and incompatibilities and the effect is permanent with a natural feel and consistency. However, fat transfer needs expertise and the fat need to be obtained (harvesting) from the person by procedure such as liposuction or aspiration and then need to be prepared and injected as a filler and volume expander without delay. Read more on fat transfer by using water-jet lipo. Other permanent dermal fillers include Silicone and other synthetic materials such as Aquamid but they have complications as they are foreign materials with risk of inflammation and different consistencies.
  • Which dermal fillers do you use in your clinic?

    Our choice of dermal fillers depend on the area to be treated, guided by our doctors’ experience in use of dermal fillers over many years and of course, we also take into account our clients’ preference and request. Generally speaking we use Juverderm and Restylane from the hyarulonic group, Radiesse and Sculptra and only very occasionally Aquamid.
    However, we increasingly shifting from non-permanent and synthetic fillers to autologous fat transfer which is permanent and has many advantages. Read more on fat transfer services in our clinic.
  • What are the most popular dermal fillers in the United Kingdom?

    Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers such as Restylane and jevuderm which derived from bacteria are the most popular dermal fillers in use in the United Kingdom. They are natural occurring substances in all animals including human, and unlikely to cause allergies and slowly degrade by the body without any known long-term effects. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers uniquely have specific neutralising (antidote) agent which means if there is a problem after their injection, the effect can be reversed and quickly neutralised by injecting the antidote medication.
  • Do you need a skin allergy test before having dermal fillers?

    This depends on the type of dermal fillers which is going to be used. Skin tests were common more than 20 years ago when bovine collagen was in use as filler, Nowadays; the commonly used hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers manufacturers do not recommend skin testing and all dermal fillers which we use in our clinic are almost safe without skin testing.

  • Where can you use dermal fillers?

    Lines and wrinkles on the face; such as smile and frown lines are treated with dermal fillers injections. Any part of the face can be injected with dermal fillers for example cheek and lip enhancement, lines around eye and around the mouth and dermal fillers can be used in combination with Botox on upper third of the face.
  • What are the side-effects of dermal fillers?

    The side-effects of dermal fillers depend on several factors. There are side-effects which are dependent of the kind of dermal fillers which has been used. It is also dependent on the site of injection and the volume of the filler which has been used and most importantly the skills and expertise of the doctor/injector. Needless to mention the quality of dermal fillers is also important. Generally speaking at the time of injection and following few days discomfort and pain might be a problem. It is known area around the nose and lips are more painful on injection other side effects includes bruising and swelling and very rarely infection. Allergic reactions are rare and at the time of injections depending on the colour and sensitivity of the skin redness and lumpiness might be experienced. Therefore, some local reactions such as redness, swelling and tenderness might be experienced during the first 48 hours after dermal filler injections but these symptoms should subside within this time frame and if it is any flare up such as increase pain, swelling or any generalised symptoms the doctor should be consulted as a matter of urgency. It is known that chronic inflammation and subtle infection are one of the rare complications of synthetic permanent fillers.

  • How much do dermal fillers cost?

    The cost of dermal fillers depends on the amount of dermal filler being used, type of dermal filler, the site of injection and the area in which the clinic is situated and the doctor who is administering the dermal filler. Obviously, the quality of dermal fillers is paramount to the final result. We offer 1ml hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Restylane 200 Pounds and you can contact us for a quotation.
