Dermal Fillers and lip fillers consist of a gel made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance. They are frequently used to address lines and wrinkles resulting from a loss of collagen or hyaluronic acid. These lines are typically found in the lower half of the face and do not vanish when the face is at rest, unlike the lines treated with Anti-Wrinkle Injections.

How long do dermal fillers take to work?
Dermal fillers begin to work almost instantly, with visible results becoming apparent right after the treatment. However, it is important to note that there may be some initial swelling or bruising that can make the treated area appear more pronounced. This is temporary and will typically subside within a few days. It’s also worth noting that the full effect of the dermal filler treatment may take a few days to a week to become fully apparent as the filler settles into place.
How long do dermal fillers last?
The duration of the effects of dermal fillers varies depending on the type of filler used, the area of the face treated, and the individual themselves. In general, most dermal fillers last between three and twelve months. Factors such as the quantity of filler injected, the area of the face treated, and the individual’s age and lifestyle can affect how long the filler lasts. Regular maintenance treatments can help to maintain the effects of dermal fillers, and it is recommended to discuss a personalized treatment plan to keep you looking your best.
What brands of dermal filler do you use?
Unlike any other clinic, at Westerwood, we do not use one specific brand of filler but stock the 4 major brands (Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyl, Belotero). This is because we believe there isn’t one company whose products are better than the rest. They all have certain products within their range that are better than others. We therefore choose the best of each range so you can truly have a tailored treatment.
Who carries out the dermal filler treatment?
We only have highly experienced locally trained aesthetic practitioners who work in aesthetics full time. This means you can rest assured knowing you are in safe hands. Indeed, our experts often have to carry out corrective treatment for clients who have had treatment elsewhere.
Is the procedure painful?
At Westerwood we take special care to ensure your treatments are not painful. The Westerwood practitioners have worked in conjunction with an overseas laboratory to formulate a super strength cream which numbs the area meaning your treatment is not painful.
