We love to help our clients look fantastic in their skin, helping elevate their natural beauty and build their confidence. From dermatological treatments to facial aesthetics, our client testimonials show how lasting and reliable our results are.

When it comes to dermal fillers, our clients often ask the same kinds of questions – wondering mainly about longevity, risks, pain and location. We thought we’d cover those in today’s blog post, so you feel a bit more informed about what’s involved if you’re interested in getting the treatment.


Where can you inject dermal fillers?

We typically use Dermal fillers in the lower half of the face to smooth the skin, sculpt and shape facial features, and bring symmetry to the face. They’re also ideal for the lips – creating shape, definition and volume all in one. They’re most commonly used to volumise and add fullness to cheeks, lips and the bridge of the nose. They smooth and plump fine lines and wrinkles, including around the forehead, lips, chin and around mouth.


How long do dermal fillers last?

The longevity of the results varies between clients, but it can be up to 18 months until you require a top-up at our aesthetic clinic in Newmarket. Of course, some people metabolise the hyaluronic acid used in the injections quicker than others and might need more sessions. But for others, only a top-up is necessary now and then to maintain their fantastic results. If you’re unsure about how your results will turn out, just chat with our team.


What about pain?

We always want our clients to feel comfortable here at our Suffolk skin clinic. Whether it’s simply a dermatology treatment or a facial aesthetics procedure, our aesthetic specialists are all about giving you peace of mind and achieving the great results you deserve from your treatment. Dermal fillers are injected with an extremely fine needle, which feels more comfortable on the skin, and a numbing agent can be used to help prevent discomfort. After treatment, using a cold compress and pain relief for the next few days is usually all that’s needed.


Are there risks of treatment?

Any procedure can carry an element of risk. With dermal fillers, it’s mainly around the use of needles. The only minor risks are bruising, swelling and tenderness, however, these should all subdue after 3 days. Other risks and side effects beyond these are rare, however, if you are to experience anything that you deem as concerning, don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team and they will direct you in the right direction.


What else do I need to know?

Dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid-based, can dissolve to help reverse the effects. So, if you’ve had treatment elsewhere and aren’t happy with the results, our aesthetic specialists are able to adjust your lips accordingly.


How do I book my treatment?

If you are ready to book your dermal filler treatment, just give our friendly team at our Suffolk skin clinic a call, email or simply book online and our experienced team will take it from there. We’d love to hear from you and help you look and feel your best once again!
