Dermal fillers are one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed by trained clinicians. They are used most commonly to address key signs of facial ageing, including loss of volume and the appearance of static wrinkles. They can also be used to enhance facial features, including the lips, nose, chin, cheekbones and jawline.
At Docklands Dental House, treatments are usually quick and give immediate results which last for around 9-12 months. The fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in every cell of the body and is essential in maintaining elasticity and moisture in the skin. By treating the face with these fillers, we can replenish lost volume, smooth noticeable lines and give skin a new lease of life.
Dermal fillers in the cheeks are designed to add volume to your face, lifting your cheekbones and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. They improve the natural contouring of the face, which can be deflated due to the natural ageing process. We use local anaesthetic for the treatment, ensuring you are as comfortable as possible, and your results can be seen instantly.
Also known as chin augmentation, dermal fillers can change the shape or size of your chin and provide a boost to your confidence. The fillers are commonly used to sharpen your facial profile, smooth any irregularities or enhance a weak chin. Chin augmentation can also help improve issues with your jawline.
We use topical anaesthetic for your treatment, ensuring you are as comfortable as possible, and your results can be seen instantly.
If your jawline is not as sharp as it once was, or you are beginning to notice jowls appear, fillers can help. As we age, our jaw bones begin to thin and shorten, which, when combined with a loss of facial volume, can result in a less prominent jawline and facial profile.
We can carefully place hyaluronic acid fillers along your jawline, stretching and strengthening it to provide a stronger, more youthful look. We use local anaesthetic for your treatment, ensuring you are as comfortable as possible, and your results can be seen instantly.
Lip treatments are one of the most popular uses for dermal fillers as both men and women are striving to achieve their ideal lip shape.
We can use fillers to volumise and enhance the appearance of your lips, make them more symmetrical and provide more definition. We ensure we know your perfect lip shape before beginning treatment so you are sure to be happy with the results.
Dermal fillers provide a great alternative to a surgical nose job (rhinoplasty) and can be effective no matter what you want to change about your nose. We can smooth bumps, narrow your nose and even bring the tip of your nose upwards slightly without the need for surgery.
We inject hyaluronic acid fillers in your nose and easily mould them into the desired shape. The fillers cannot make your nose smaller within your facial frame, but do provide fast results, can improve your confidence and are effective, especially if you are not keen on the long recovery periods associated with the surgical option.
One of the earliest visual signs of facial ageing, smile lines form as creases reaching from the edge of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. They lose volume and begin to sag over time.
We can use dermal fillers to soften these lines and rejuvenate your face. The treatment is completely tailored to you, and whether you would benefit most from replenished volume or to provide a lifting effect in your cheek and under eye region.
Treatment of the eye area is the most complex of all dermal filler treatments. You are in safe hands with our experienced and trained clinician.
The area directly around your eyes is often the first place the signs of ageing are visible. The skin becomes thinner as the collagen and elastin reduces, causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear. Sagging can also occur as parcels of fat under the skin begin to deflate, resulting in an indentation between your lower eyelid and cheek, known as the tear trough.
Dermal fillers can be used to address the under eye area, and reduce the extent of the tear trough area in particular. The added volume from the filler helps to regain contours under your eye and boost your confidence.
