Dermal Fillers

Restore lost facial volume or augment the contours of your face

dermal fillers
Treatment Overview

As part of the ageing process, our skin’s natural production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid decreases, leading to loss of volume and shape in the face and lack of elasticity in the skin. Dermal fillers replenish lost volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles, and deeply hydrate the skin. It can be used to address a variety of cosmetic concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, loss of volume in the cheeks and lips, and hollows under the eyes.

Dermal fillers' FAQs

Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid and a small amount of painkiller to minimise discomfort when they are placed. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found in the body and retains 10,000 times its weight in water within the skin. Dermal fillers keep the skin hydrated and plump, while replacing lost volume (e.g. in the cheek and lips) and smoothing wrinkles and fine lines in the face.

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to increase volume, decrease lines and enhance facial features. Like any medical procedure, there can be risks involved, so it is important to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner. This will help to ensure injections are precise to minimise the risks of complications such as bruising, swelling or infection.

If you are looking for elegant and natural results, you should always choose an experienced clinician with an artistic eye.

High quality dermal fillers are considered to be extremely safe, and Dr. Ashraf only uses premium fillers.

Potential risks and side effects include redness, swelling, bruising and tenderness at the injection sites, but these usually subside within a few days. Because hyaluronic acid is a natural bodily product, allergic reactions are very rare.

The duration of dermal fillers varies from person to person depending on several factors, including skin elasticity, patient’s metabolism, and lifestyle factors such as sun exposure and smoking. Typically results last between 6-18months.
