Dermal Fillers

Dermal filler treatments are used to help soften signs of ageing and restore the appearance of plump, smooth, healthy-looking skin by filling depressions such as reduce fine lines and wrinkles, helping rejuvenate ageing hands, aiding in scar removal as well as allowing us to subtly restore facial volume loss in areas where it has been lost, such as the cheeks and lips. This wrinkle filler is popular among clients.

At The Skin to Love Clinic this procedure is performed only by qualified medical practitioners and we are proud to say that the clinic won the Teosyal Outstanding Clinic Award for this service; a national award which is heavily weighted on patient experience, safety, treatment results, our commitment to training and our product knowledge.

At The Skin to Love Clinic we use hyaluronic acid based fillers; hyaluronic acid is found naturally within your skin and is replicated in dermal filler products for treatment purposes. Hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge to retain large amounts of water which help to keep the skin plumped and soft. In the filler syringes that your practitioner will use, the hyaluronic acid comes in the form of a soft gel.

The dermal filler is injected strategically in to the desired area to either increase volume in the area, for example, into the lips; to redefine an area that is no longer as sharp as it once was, for example, along the jawline or the cheekbones; to smooth areas of depression, for example, lines and wrinkles from the nose to mouth.

The results we offer are natural and not the ‘over-filled’ look. We use several filler brands at the clinic including Teosyal, Radiesse, Belotero and Juvéderm; your practitioner will give guidance and use their extensive experience to match the type of filler they feel is the most appropriate type for you, your treatment area and your desired outcome during your consultation.

Indications that this treatment may be right for you:

  • You have nose to mouth lines that you wish to soften
  • You have marionette lines that you wish to soften
  • You have noticed a loss of natural volume in the cheeks and midface
  • You have noticed that your jawline is not as sharp as it once was
  • You have thin, undefined lips that you wish to define and subtly volumise
  • You have nose imperfections that you would like smoothing
  • You have prominent tear troughs that you would like to soften

I have lost some volume in my face but don’t want to look like I’ve had work done. Is this possible to achieve with dermal fillers?

Yes. We prefer to use small amounts of filler each session so that you achieve a natural look. We can gradually build the product up to achieve your results so that you are comfortable that we are not over treating you, especially if you have never had this treatment previously.

There’s a particular celebrity I would like to look similar to. Can this be done with dermal fillers?

No, we would not attempt to do this because each person is totally different and unique; your bone structure and features are completely unique to you. We want to make you look the best that you can look and make the most of your one-of-a-kind features, not try to imitate another person. It’s unlikely you would be satisfied with your results if this was attempted.

Are fillers safe?

Temporary fillers have a good safety profile. It is very rare to get serious complications. At The Skin to Love Clinic you will only ever be treated by a medical professional with extensive experience and the skills to handle complications.

Hypothetically, if the fillers were misplaced or a patient was not happy with the placement of the product it could be dissolved quickly by injecting a safe, enzyme-based product into the area.

Following treatment we check-in with you to ensure that you are recovering well and we encourage you to immediately contact us should you be concerned about any aspect of your treatment or recovery.

Are there side effects to fillers?

Temporary fillers have a good safety profile. Swelling and bruising are the most common potential side effects immediately following treatment.  At The Skin to Love Clinic you will only ever be treated by a medical professional with extensive experience and the skills to handle complications.

Consultations are an important part of the treatment process in allowing you to understand the treatment and to establish if the benefits of the treatment are outweighed by any possible side effects. During a consultation your characteristics, such as your area of concern and your medical status, will be assessed. Your medical practitioner will be able to discuss whether this treatment is appropriate for you, as well as any suitable alternative treatments.

Your practitioner will discuss any possible side effects, questions you may have and any aftercare you should adhere to prior to you having treatment.

If I don’t have fillers again, will I look worse than I did before?

No. The product will gradually wear off and you will reverse to how you looked prior to the treatment and your natural ageing process will continue. This treatment does not stop that natural ageing process.

How long do fillers last?

This can vary depending on where you have the treatment and the product used. Products designed to be placed superficially and treatment in areas where there is a lot of movement, such as wrinkles the mouth, fillers usually last between 3 and 12 months. In cases where the product used is thicker and used to create deep volume, such as in the cheeks, the treatment results usually last 6 to 18 months.

Your lifestyle and your metabolic rate usually influence the longevity of your results. For example, in our experience, those who smoke or frequently do cardio work-outs can break-down the filler faster than those who do not.

Do fillers hurt?

The level of discomfort is usually found to be mild and tolerable by patients. The dermal fillers used at The Skin to Love Clinic contain local anaesthetic which greatly improve your comfort. We understand that that each person’s tolerance to pain is different however and are happy to offer our patients additional local anaesthetic cream prior to the procedure should this be a concern of yours.

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

I’ve had the HydraFacia treatment with anti-aging booster recently and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! My skin feels incredibly clean, hydrated, and has a radiant glow. Nikki was fantastic—she meticulously explained each step of the treatment, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The thoughtful touch of a follow-up call post-treatment added a personalised touch that I truly appreciated. Thank you, and I'm definitely looking forward to more sessions!

I had 3 moles removed (one on my face, and two on my body) by Emma. She did a wonderful job and they are healing up beautifully. She is clearly incredibly knowledgeable and I was well informed about the process. Not only that but she put my mind at ease fantastically as I was feeling quite nervous. We were able to laugh and chat throughout the appointment and I actually left in a better mood than when I went in! That is definitely Kudos to Emma (and the lovely staff at the front desk who always made me feel so welcome). Thank you so much.
