Injectable dermal fillers are one of the most popular facial rejuvenation treatments that we offer and are a highly effective anti-ageing treatment with instant results and virtually no down time.
At the Harley Street Skin Clinic we use the hyaluronic acid filler Restylane® to enhance the cheeks, the tear trough area below the eye and the folds and lines between the nose and mouth and Teosyal® to naturally enhance the lips. Our doctors are well known for their aesthetic eye and expertise with injectables, preferring a natural looking result that is flattering rather than an obvious and overfilled look. As our faces age we lose volume and that full–faced, youthful look gradually disappears. The effects of gravity can cause skin to sag, cheeks lose definition and hollows can develop in the tear troughs creating that ‘tired all the time’ look.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps to create volume beneath facial skin, along with collagen, elastin and fat cells. As we age our natural reserves of hyaluronic acid break down but fillers such as Restylane® and Teosyal® can be used for restoring the lost volume in the face, smoothing and reducing wrinkles and lines, and creating fuller lips. The effects of just a small touch of additional volume provided by hyaluronic acid fillers can make quite a dramatic difference to your appearance, leaving you looking instantly fresher and younger.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with other procedures such as muscle relaxing injections and laser resurfacing to produce the effects of a non-surgical facelift.
Suitable for all skin types. No allergy testing is required, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring it is safe to use on anyone.
Instant, subtle and natural looking facial re-shaping and contouring. That all – important youthful volume is restored to the upper half of the face, cheekbones can be defined and the appearance of the tear trough, which can develop under the eye as a result of volume loss, is diminished. In addition the nose to mouth lines are lifted and smoothed away to leaving you with a fresher, more youthful look.
The effects of hyaluronic acid fillers can last in excess of a year, although the longevity of results varies from patient to patient. The body will eventually break down and absorb the hyaluronic acid over time and without leaving a trace. It’s important to remember that the treatment is not permanent so there’s no risk of being stuck with a look you may not be happy with in years to come.
No down time, most people are able to return straight to work after treatment. Some redness, minor swelling or bruising may be experienced in the treatment area but is easily hidden with mineral make-up.
Dermal fillers are used to enhance the lips and create a fuller but natural looking lip line. As we age the lips become thinner and smaller, developing those fine vertical lines around the edges that are a real giveaway sign of ageing. Full, plump lips are very youthful looking whereas thin lips can be very ageing and give the face a rather miserable look. We use either Restylane Lipp® or Teosyal Kiss®, both hyaluronic acid fillers that are specifically designed to restore natural fullness and create beautifully shaped lips.
In order to achieve a natural looking result we prefer to inject only a small amount of filler initially and then top-up if required after any swelling has diminished. We have all seen the results when too much filler has been used to plump the lips, our aim is to produce a beautiful, subtle enhancement.
Suitable for all skin types and no allergy testing is required.
Natural looking, subtle results – extra volume is added to the main body of the lip, the vermillion border of the lips is more defined and fine lines are diminished. Lips appear naturally youthful and plump giving a flattering and more attractive look without the risk of ‘trout pout’.
The effects last between six – twelve months and then a top-up treatment will be necessary.
Immediately following treatment there may be some swelling and tenderness. The swelling can last for up to a week and then final results will be visible.
If you’re toying with the idea of lip fillers and want to see what you’d look like with a fuller pout, try the Cinderella Lips treatment which is an injection of saline into the lipline, that disappears…..Cinderella style after just 24- 48 hours so if you don’t like it will quickly dissolve. This a great quick-fix treatment for a special night out and it’s a big hit with lots of our celebrity clients who have this before a red carpet event.

Restylane Vital™ is a dermal filler specially formulated for skin revitalisation that works by improving skin elasticity and skin tone and adding hydration.
Collagen and elastin fibres degrade as we age and the distribution and function of the body’s own hyaluronic acid is less efficient. This results in the skin becoming dry and rough in texture, with less elasticity. Part of this is due to the biological clock but lifestyle factors such as sun exposure, smoking and drinking also play a part in the quality of the skin.
Restylane Vital™ can improve the appearance of the skin by replenishing hyaluronic acid to increase elasticity and improve skin structure. Restylane VitalÔ is scientifically proven to improve the quality of the skin and can be used to revitalise and enhance the face, neck, décolletage and hands.
Suitable for all skin types. No allergy testing is required, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring and can be used on anyone.
Skin is instantly revitalized with a visible improvement in texture and tone. Dry, crepey, sun damaged skin instantly looks hydrated and more supple.
The effects of Restylane Vital™ can last up to a year and then a top-up treatment is required, although the longevity of the results varies from patient to patient.
