Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can be used to fill out wrinkles and deep lines that develop with time to help restore a fuller and more youthful complexion. They can also be used to help to correct or enhance the form of certain facial features such as the chin, jaw and lips.

Products used

Several filler brands, filler densities and delivery techniques (needle vs. cannula) are used depending on the treatment area and desired result; every treatment is tailored to you as your face is your personalised canvas. All products used by The Courtyard Clinic are in line with current UK safety standards.

Holistic approach

At The Courtyard Clinic we believe in holistic care. Every facial treatment starts with a consultation. Consultations are free of charge and allow the practitioner to assess your specific requirements and tailor a treatment plan which is best suited to you. 

What are dermal fillers made from?

Dermal fillers are a gel like substance that is placed beneath the skin. They contain hyaluronic acid (HA) which is found naturally in your own skin. Fillers contain a modified form of this chemical that helps to hydrate and plump out the skin/lips. 

All dermal fillers used do resorb over time and if necessary, can be dissolved.

HA filler also contains a local anaesthetic that numbs the area to aid treatment. Topical numbing creams or numbing injections can also be used where indicated.

As HA is a natural substance of the skin, it is naturally broken down, meaning all forms of HA fillers are temporary requiring a future top-up. 

To note fillers are different to anti-wrinkle injections (botulinum toxin) that we use. Fillers do not cause softening of muscle movements like toxin does. The filler mechanism is to physically add volume to the skin instead. 

 

How long does filler last?

Depending on the brand of dermal filler, they can last between 6 months and two years. Even longer is possible with a touch-up and maintenance in between. 

When can you start filler treatment?

Dermal filler treatment is ideal for patients in their 20s and 30s who want to treat the first signs of ageing without creating drastic changes. By targeting key anti-ageing zones in the face, we’re able to prevent these signs of ageing from developing, allowing for age prevention over time.

However, that said, having treatment later in life to turn back the clock is also possible. As we lose laxity and volume to the skin and our skull structure underneath resorbs we can cleverly place filler to rebuild deficient areas.

Treatment Goals

One of the most important considerations is that we like to keep it natural. We always advise it’s easier to add more filler vs take product away. We like to cleverly layer our products to build a beautiful structure to your face that is tasteful, age appropriate and meets your treatment goals. 

 

Whether you would like a full-face approach or just work on specific areas the first step is to always come into the clinic for a face analysis.

Results

Improved cheek definition and projection

Cheek Filler aims to restore lost volume and projection to the area surrounding the cheekbone. The cheek bone and fad pad in the area can start to resorb in your mid 20s and some people are naturally born with a more sunken in mid face.

The application of dermal fillers to this area will not only enhance the facial structure, but will also smooth out fine lines and wrinkles giving a fresher, more youthful appearance to the face. By adding to the cheek bone region, we can create a more aesthetic profile too.
