Dermal Fillers


Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are used to replace lost volume in the face. As we age, our fat pads reduce in the face so the skin droops causing lines from nose to mouth and below the mouth as well as a sagging jawline.

By injecting the correct filler into the face, volume can be restored, lines reduced and a more youthful appearance attained.

What areas can be treated with Dermal Fillers?

It is essential that each patient is accurately assessed before having filler as we prefer to treat the cause of the wrinkle/fold than simply fill the fold. Cheek filler is often the most effective treatment and by volumising the cheek it can minimise nose to mouth lines and jowls.

The aim is always to create a fresher more youthful version of yourself and not make you look different.

Lip fillers are popular, however at Dr CP Aesthetics we believe in a natural look and will not inject more than 1ml of product at a time; remember, it is far easier to add filler than to remove it.

Fillers vary in strength and some fillers can be used or hydration whereas others are thicker and give stronger definition. Often a combination of fillers is used to create the optimal effect.

During the treatment a small needle is inserted into or under the skin depending on the area to be injected. The results can be seen immediately yet continue to improve over the course of two weeks. The injections can sting slightly but most people don’t feel they need any anaesthetic. Lips are very sensitive, so we do insist on a topical anaesthetic cream prior to lip filler treatment.

We only use premium fillers that have a proven track record for safety and so you can rest assured that they are perfectly safe. Treatment is not recommended in pregnant or breast-feeding women and those with active skin infections such as cold sores.

The premium fillers used are hypoallergenic gels so allergic reactions are extremely rare. Side effects are uncommon but can include bruising, tenderness and redness of the area. There is usually a bit of swelling post procedure but this settles within a few days. Some people can be prone to bruising and we do recommend that you avoid anti-inflammatories (aspirin and ibuprofen) for 7 days before the procedure unless they are medically necessary.

Immediately after the procedure it is important not to touch the area or apply make up for 24 hours to minimise infection. As with most aesthetic procedures we advise no alcohol for 24 hours as this can worsen any bruising.


Price List

0.55ml syringe
1ml syringe

Dermal and lip fillers are charged per syringe. I use Allergan’s Vycross range, Juvederm®, Voluma®, Volbella® or Volift® which are all 1 ml syringes. Each type of filler has it’s own indication, lip enhancement, volumisation or treatment of fine lines.

There will be a reduction for multiple syringes used at the same consultation. I would be happy to advise on the estimated number of syringes required at an initial consultation however I rarely administer more than two syringes at a time.

There is increasing pressure on us these days to appear ‘ageless’ and conform to celebrity ideals and this in turn can lead to confidence issues which I all too often see as a doctor.

I truly believe in a ‘less is more’ philosophy and want to work with my clients to achieve a more youthful version of themselves whilst retaining their full range of expression and not giving them a mask like look. I want your friends to comment on how well you are looking but not be able to tell that you have had a cosmetic treatment (that’s a secret that you can choose to keep to yourself)!
