Dermal Fillers – Facial
Dermal fillers can help to replenish lost skin volume and improve facial contours instantly and naturally. Dermal Fillers help to smooth facial lines and wrinkles resulting in increased fullness of the skin and lips, a more youthful appearance and boosted confidence.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Popular for softening wrinkles, facial lines and laughter lines caused naturally by ageing and/or sun exposure. The fillers are combined with a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area, then the dermal fillers are injected into the skin with a very fine needle to lift you face with natural volume. The procedure leaves your skin feeling hydrated and youthful.
We offer dermal fillers to the following areas, nasolabial folds, lips, lines around the mouth and marionettes. We also offer fillers for cheek, temple, tear trough, jaw and chin augmentation.
All of our patients seeking injectable treatments are given a full consultation with Dr Woodcock to ensure they fully understand the treatment, their expectations and motivation. Dermal fillers are an invasive treatment and should always be carried out by a medical professional.
Dr Woodcock will deliver your treatment to achieve the optimal natural looking result.
Frequently Asked Questions

The dermal fillers we use contain hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in our skin. It attracts water and acts as a cushioning agent. The injection fills lines and replaces lost volume. Over time these injections encourage collagen production. The product is derived from a bacteria which is purified so poses no risk of infection. It contains no animal or human product.

The dermal fillers are then injected with a small needle or a cannula into the desired areas. The dermal filler contains local anaesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable. Most people report a little discomfort during the injections but not pain.
