dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are substances placed, usually via injection in and around the skin to augment a particular region. They have been used commercially since the 1940s.

Fillers can be permanent, semi-permanent or temporary. Most of what we use in the clinic is of the temporary (the most common) type e.g. Teosyalâ, Juvedermâ

Modern dermal fillers of the type we use are composed of hyaluronic acid, a compound that occurs naturally in the tissues of most living species, including man and is found abundantly in the skin and joints.

The key functions of hyaluronic acid are to hydrate the skin and to maintain the skin's structure. It attracts and binds water into the skin and assists in the growth of new skin and in healing.


The hyaluronic acid used in dermal fillers is manufactured artificially and is identical to the hyaluronic acid in our skin, thus virtually eliminating any allergic reactions. (less than one in fifteen thousand patients experience a hypersensitivity reaction). It has a documented duration in the tissue of up to 18 months, giving a long-lasting aesthetic benefit.


Dermal fillers can be used in almost any facial or body area (e.g. lips, face, breasts) and come in various preparations to suit their need.


Anaesthetic may not necessarily be needed, but topical (cream) or local (injection) anaesthetic can be offered, depending on need and client preference.
