We offer consultations with our highly qualified Cosmetic Doctors and Nurses for you to discuss a range of concerns you might have about the appearance of your skin, including reducing the appearance of wrinkles, volume loss and enhancement, improving skin hydration, boosting collagen production and more.

Dermal Filler

Dermal filler injections may be used in many areas of the face to fill and smooth lines, wrinklesdeep folds and to improve the appearance of scars. They may also be used to restore and enhance youthful curves of your face by adding volume to cheeks and lips and defining the natural contours of the jaw, chin and nose.

Containing hyaluronic acid, that attracts and binds water, this treatment will improve elasticity and smooth your skin. Therefore creating volume, enhancing your features, and reducing signs of ageing.

Dermal filler injections contain hyaluronic acid (HA) – a naturally occurring substance in the skin that stabilises structure, attracts and binds water, and improves elasticity. HA fills the space of volume loss and stimulates skin cell renewal. 

Common facial areas which are treated with dermal filler injections include the cheeks, lips, chin, jowls, jawline, temples and tear troughs as well as the neck, décolletage and hands.  


Results are visible immediately and optimal in one to two weeks. They last six to twelve months, depending on the area treated and the product prescribed. The dermal filler will gradually and naturally degrade in the body. Regular treatments will help to maintain results.


  • Avoid blood-thinning and anti-inflammatory medication (e.g. aspirin ibuprofen, fish oil, and St John’s wort) one week prior

Prior to your first treatment, our doctor will consult with you to assess your suitability for dermal filler and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.  

The procedure involves a small amount of the prescribed product being administered into the selected areas using a very fine needle, or in some instances, a cannula. The injections may sting for a few seconds, and in some instances a numbing agent will be used.
