As a result of age, sun damage, worry, gravity and other environmental factors, our facial skin begins to develop lines and wrinkles. Whilst this is a manifestation of ageing of the skin and a reduction in the collagen and elastic framework of the skin it is possible to smooth out folds and wrinkles using dermal fillers to give a more relaxed and youthful appearance.

When performed by experts, dermal filler treatment is simple and straightforward, involving a few tiny injections directly into the skin, and takes only 30 minutes. Dermal fillers consist of a smooth gel of stabilised hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the cells of the skin. It is injected beneath the skin’s surface and works by drawing in water, augmenting the skin and reducing wrinkles. Make-up can be applied immediately after the procedure and you can go straight back to work. Results are seen immediately and last between 12-24 months.

Optimal results can be maintained over a long period of time with regularly repeated treatments. Not only do we use only market-leading brands, we use only the highest grade of dermal fillers. The higher the grade, the more robust the product, ensuring the best tissue support and cosmetic correction.

Your treatment is carried out by our highly experienced, specialist cosmetic doctor, who is widely recognised as an international leader in advanced, non-surgical facial aesthetics treatments. Dr Kieren Bong is a national and international trainer as well as much-valued guest speaker.

Dermal fillers FAQ

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are substance/gels injected beneath the skin's surface to smooth wrinkles and add volume and contour. The products are composed of stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) which occurs naturally in the cells of the skin. It works by drawing in water and therefore augmenting the skin, thus reducing the wrinkle treated. It is by no means permanent and is totally biodegradable. Depending on what type of dermal fillers, results can last between one to two years.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Skin Clinic Glasgow
Dermal fillers can help to "fill in" facial indentations, add volume to your skin, smooth unwanted facial wrinkles and lines and help skin regain its youthful look in areas as follows:

The Procedure

A dermal filler procedure requires no anaesthetic as the dermal filler contains local anaesthetic. It is simple and straight-forward, involving a few tiny injections directly into the skin, and takes only 30 minutes. Make-up can be applied immediately after the procedure and you can go straight back to work. Result can be seen immediately, and lasts from 9-24 months. Optimal results can be maintained over a long period of time through regular repeated treatments. The procedure varies from person to person depending on your requirements and the severity of the wrinkles that are being treated, in addition to the particular dermal filler being administered.

How soon will I see my results?

Results are seen instantly after the treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following 2-4 weeks.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Yes. We use only products with proven safety record. Hyaluronic acid is a substance which occurs naturally in the cells of the skin, thus there is no risk of allergic reactions. Even people with food sensitivities can receive these fillers safely. The brands of dermal fillers we use are available in more than 80 countries and have been used as an injectable cosmetic treatment for more than two decades with an excellent safety record.

What brand of dermal fillers do you offer?

We use the newest, most advanced non-animal based form of hyaluronic acid dermal filler on the market today. There are over 250 brands of dermal fillers in Europe. The three largest and most popular brands are Teosyal, Restylane and Juvederm.

Are there any side effects?

Today's dermal fillers have come a long way since the first-generation of collagen injections. Advanced injection techniques, coupled with the use of micro-cannula (blunt needle) and improved product safety means that significant side effects are extremely uncommon but may include:

• Injection-related reactions: these reactions may include redness at the injection site immediately after the treatment.

• Bruising: occasionally bruising can occur. However the use of micro-cannula (blunt needle) dramatically reduces the risk of bruising.

• Contour irregularities can and do occasionally occur. Massaging can usually smooth out any 'lumpiness' however if persistent the filler can be easily and rapidly dissolved.

• Infection - as with all injections, this procedure carries a risk of infection. The syringe is sterile and standard precautions associated with injectable materials are taken.

After care instructions?

• After your treatment we will again go through with you any after care advice in order to maximise your treatment benefits and avoid any undesirable side effects.

• You can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment.

• As with any type of injection there may be some slight redness immediately afterwards. Camouflage make up may be applied.

• The results directly after the treatment should therefore not be seen as the final results. This is because over the following 2 weeks the results will gradually improve.

• For 2 weeks after the treatment you are advised to avoid extreme heat (sun bed or sunbathing) or intense cold.

Follow-up and future appointments?

One of the great advantages of the dermal fillers used at Essence Medical Cosmetic Clinic is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. You are always in control of your looks-you can continue or change the treatment you have had or repeat the procedure as often as you like. Routine review appointments are generally not required, however occasionally touch up procedures may be carried out 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment in order to achieve optimal correction and maximise the duration of the results (please note that additional costs may be incurred if further product is required).

What can I expect from my consultation and will I have treatment the same day as my consultation?

You are required to have a face-to-face consultation prior to having the treatment with our specialist cosmetic doctor, Dr Kieren Bong. In the consultation he will examine the areas you wish treated. Dr Bong will then offer you a treatment plan and quote you a price. He will also discuss in detail the advantages and limitations of any of the treatments and the alternatives. It depends on how long it takes to conclude the consulation and the type of treatments you chose to have, there might not be enough time for you to have the treatment on the same visit. However, if you are travelling from a distance, please do let us know in advance so we can try to accommodate your circumstances.

How much does the treatment cost?

Cost depends on the type of dermal filler, amount dermal filler is required and the areas of the face you wish to be treated (e.g. undereye hollow and cheeks). During the consultation, Dr Bong will formulate a treatment plan for you and advise the exact cost of your treatments. Our prices are competitive and your treatments will be carried out by an international expert. We believe our patients deserve the utmost safety in our care and we are committed to offering reliable, safe and effective results. Prices start from around £300. Please refer to our price list.

There are a lot of flash Harrys out there. Don't be fooled. Kieren is an understated gem. My experiences with Kieren are lip enhancement, cheek volumisation, chin augmentation and Miracle Frame Thread Lift. Full marks for every treatment.
