As we age sometimes there are specific areas that we are unable to achieve a long term result with using just skincare and advance facials alone, you may need to consider additional aesthetic treatments to help keep you looking younger. Lines and wrinkles on our forehead, around the outside of our eyes, top lip and neck are tell-tale signs of aging. These lines can become more prominent due to over-use of muscle activity i.e. frowning, laughter lines etc.
We can’t stop the aging process but we to slow it down using a variety of cosmetic and aesthetic treatments.
We run a fortnightly Cosmetic Injections Clinic generally on a Monday or Wednesday afternoon/evening. Treatments are carried out by Louise Hack, a qualified, insured advanced nurse practitioner. Louise started her career in the NHS in 1998, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science and Masters, whilst in senior management in Kings College hospital. In 2017 Louise trained under some of the best aesthetic practitioners, she is now delivering aesthetic cosmetic treatments training to students in Harley Street.

Dermal fillers are used to recreate the loss of volume in the face, as we grow older our facial muscles and connecting tissue begin to lose elasticity because the lack of collagen and elastic being produced as a result gives an tired and sunken look to the face. Unlike wrinkles which require muscle relaxants to soften them, facial volume and folds require a dermal filler to help re-volumise and hydrate the area. Hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the body, is synthetically produced and used as a filler for various parts of the face.
Dermal fillers can be used to treat the lips, though different brands of filler products are used depending on the desired effects. Lips require a softer product that ensures the results are subtle and natural. There are many factors to consider with lips including; border, volume, balance and symmetry.
1ml Filler – £200 / 3ml Filler – £450
Are there any side effects after having Dermal Fillers?
The most common side effects occur within 24 hours or immediately post treatment. These can include; swelling, bruising, redness and tenderness. Immediate side effects usually disappear within days. However, depending on the type of dermal filler used, it can take a few weeks. Follow-up consultation is available if you have any concerns.
How long do Dermal Fillers last?
Dermal fillers can last up to 3-6 months and in some cases longer. Lips are a high activity area as we use them all the time, this can impact how long the results will last but approximately 3-4 months.
Do Dermal Fillers hurt?
Dermal Fillers feel like a slight pinch, and you may experience slight pressure or a ‘stinging’ sensation as the product is being injected. Pain tolerance can be dependent on the individual client.
Are lip fillers safe?
Lip fillers should only be performed by qualified medical professionals, our aesthetic nurse Louise has a huge amount of experience in lip fillers. Only CE marked reputable branded filler products are used in treatment, these are packaged in a sealed box and vial, only drawn up into the needle just before the treatment is performed.
How will my lips look and feel after lip filler?
Lip filler results are visible straight away, you may experience some mild swelling and bruising for 1-5 days. You may notice some small lumps are present these will disperse within a day or so. This is completely normal after a cosmetic injectable treatment. A free follow-up consultation is recommended to check the results.
