Ashgrove Healthcare

Dermal Fillers

We use hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal fillers. HA’s are injections into the skin either to reduce the appearance of facial lines, or to restore volume to cheeks or lips.

We use a selection of Teosyal products which are a Swiss Company, and we have had very good results using a range of these products.

How does it work?

Dermal fillers hold water within the body, so when injected beneath the skin it hydrates and volumises the area treated, the effects of this are immediate.

Does it hurt?

Usually the discomfort is minimal.  Usually patients have a topical aesthetic (local pain relief in the form of a numbing cream) before the actual procedure.

How long does it last?

Dermal fillers naturally break down within the body so the effects are not permanent, but will last for between 9 to 12 months.

Is there any “down time”?

Mild bruising can occur to the areas involved but most patients have minimal redness and swelling.  The bruising can take up to a few weeks to totally resolve and some patients heal slower than others.

Do I have to keep having it?

No, this is down to personal choice.  Some patients want to maintain the more youthful looking skin and have regular treatments.
