Our injectable dermal fillers restore the volume, shape and fullness to your skin, reducing the appearance of fine or deep lines and giving you a more youthful appearance. They can also be used to enhance your natural features such as lips and cheeks.
As part of the aging process, our skin loses its elasticity and volume. This can contribute to the formation of wrinkles. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid. This is the same substance that occurs naturally in our skin to give it hydration and volume. Our fillers essentially replace what’s been lost as you age! We use Revloax, Juvederm, Belotero, Restylance and Radiesse – soft, flexible fillers – for a natural look.

About our dermal filler treatment
This includes a consultation with Annie at our clinic just outside Norwich. We will discuss what you are concerned about and the results you are looking for. We will take your medical history and ask you to sign a patient consent form.
The procedure lasts 20-30 minutes. A topical local anaesthetic cream is sometimes needed for this and the filler gel contains a local anaesthetic so there is very little discomfort.
The majority of people require no downtime following these procedures. You can return to work and normal activities the same day. Some post procedure instructions apply.
Results are seen immediately after treatment. Further improvements are seen over the next 7 days as the filler integrates and hydrates the area. Results can be expected to last 6-18 months depending on treatment performed.

Are there any potential side effects?
There are some risks associated with this treatment, particularly if you have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis). It is very important that you let us know if you have a known allergy to lidocaine or any gram-positive bacterial proteins used to make hyaluronic acid. We also need to know if you are prone to bleeding or have been diagnosed with a bleeding disorder.
Any side effects are typically mild and tend to resolve in 7-14 days. The most common side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching and impaired hand function. There are some serious but rare side effects including infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions and superficial necrosis at the injection site.
Annie will discuss all potential side effects with you at your initial consultation, but if you do have any concerns, please feel free to get in touch.
