Safe and natural dermal fillers for lip and facial enhancements, expertly performed by fully qualified medical doctors in Newcastle and Durham.
Lip filler injections are one of the most common treatments carried out by our experienced doctors. Lips are a defining feature of your face, so it’s important that they’re full, well-defined and symmetrical. Lip fillers can help to enhance your natural features and rejuvenate the area, giving you the perfect natural-looking pout, with a variety of techniques used depending on the need of our client.
Dermal fillers can also be to fill out lost volume and definition in the face and enhance the cheekbones. By lift and restoring the skin’s natural volume and elasticity, the treatment can enhance your natural features to deliver a more youthful appearance with beautiful long-lasting results.
How does dermal filler work?
Dermal filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring product found within the body such as in skin, cartilage and connective tissue. Its primary function within the body is to provide lubricant and moisture to the tissues by a unique process it binds and retains water (hydrophilia). Youthful skin retains its smoothness, resilience and pliability due to its high water content. As part of the natural ageing process, moisture is lost from the tissues, especially the facial tissues. When HA injected into skin, such as the lips, cheeks and nasolabial folders, skin immediately appears fuller and smoother, not just from the presence of the product itself but also by its biological action of attracting water to the treated area. Dermal fillers come in various brands and percentage of HA content, allowing for experienced practitioners the ability to match a client’s aesthetic needs with the best product for them.

Each client’s lip shape differs and our experienced doctors can advise you on the best course of treatment to achieve your desired results during your initial consultation.
We can also use dermal fillers to target facial concerns. As we age, we tend to lose volume in the face, which can make us look tired and sunken. Dermal fillers can be used to restore this lost volume and fullness, delivering beautiful, natural and long-lasting results.

Our doctors are highly experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to facial anatomy and pride themselves on their ability to avoid injecting close to vessel which reduced the risk of bruising. Therefore, the majority of our clients do not exhibit bruises or any other side effects following treatment.
