Dermal Filler Treatment
Dermal fillers are one of the fastest growing areas of non-surgical cosmetic intervention in the UK. They are popular aesthetic facial treatments for wrinkles, facial lines and facial folds as well as replenishing lost volume in the face and hands.
What are dermal fillers for? Skilfully injected, by an experienced practitioner they enhance soft tissue volume and re-contour as well as fill and smooth depressed areas and lines, improving skin tone and texture.
What are the dermal fillers made of?
Generally they are made from a form of hyaluronic acid “HA”, a substance naturally found in the body; they are designed to be injected just under the skin to improve the appearance of volume, lines and wrinkles. There are other fillers made from calcium hydroxylapatite, the functional component of Radiesse, which has been safely used for over 25 years and Polylactic acid the main component of Sculptra which is a collagen booster. Around 90% of Dermal filler treatments in UK are with HA products.
Why do we use Juvéderm®?
Over the last few years Allergan, have developed a factory on the Swiss/French boarder at Pringy, “Haute-Savoie”, 30 minutes from Geneva. This investment has been solely to develop this range using VYCROSSTM technology. Allergan have invested €50,000,000 so far in the venture with the objective of producing the very best product available anywhere in the world. Many of our staff have visited and all, without exception came away completely convinced of the quality of this product.
The Juvéderm® products will all be HA based and will enter a market of possibly hundreds of others. Juvéderm® dermal filler however, is a unique injectable gel, made using a manufacturing process that provides the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available, which in our opinion provides the safest, the longest lasting and most satisfying results.
rtwskin have first-hand experience of many dermal fillers, rtwskin practitioners delivered over 3500 facial injected treatments in 2015 of which around 2000 were dermal filler injections”.
As one of the largest providers in the South East rtwskin had a huge choice when considering which dermal filler to use. We chose Juvéderm® because it is manufactured in a highly regulated and controlled environment with constant product sampling and testing.
Whatever your requirements are, full sensuous lips, replace volume in depleted cheeks or to fill lines and wrinkles in the face or hands there is a Juvéderm® dermal filler to suit. It is not one product fits all, matching product to procedure will be done with your experienced practitioner in front of a mirror so every detail can be discussed and agreed upon before and during treatment.
It is important to keep it natural and this is far too important a procedure to trust to a novice. The product will last for a year to eighteen months so great care and attention is needed at time of treatment but full consideration must be given beforehand to just what effect you are looking for.

Most people plump for a cheeky cheek enhancement as this will lift the entire face, restoring a nice firm line to the jaw and giving an overall softer appearance. It’s a subtle thing which fits with our ‘whole face approach’ so don’t think about it as a noticeable or artificial implant. It’s nothing like that. We will take a good look at your face and give you our advice on how you can stay true to who you are and achieve a nice natural look. Sometimes, dermal filler can be used to soften ‘marionette’ lines, or to give your lips a boost. The best thing is to come in for a chat.
The area may be a little swollen and tender for 24 hours. Minimal redness or bruising can occur. None of these side effects are very serious and they will resolve in a matter of hours or a few days.
Avoid touching the treated area within 6 hours following treatment. After that, light makeup can be applied and the area can be gently washed with a gentle facial cleanser and water.
Until the initial swelling and redness has resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. solarium and sunbathing) or extreme cold.
If you are using aspirin or any similar medication, be aware that these may increase the risk of bruising at the injection site.
Do not consume excessive alcohol for 24 hours.
Do not do any exercise for 24 hours after the procedure
Do not have any dental treatments for 2 weeks following your dermal filler treatment.
If you get any bruising do apply an ice pack and arnica cream. Mineral based makeup can be applied immediately after the procedure.
If you bruise easily, you may want to take arnica tablets for 1 day before the procedure and for 5 days afterwards.
If you are prone to cold sores around the mouth, our doctor will advise you to take Acyclovir tablets for a few days after the procedure.
An SPF must be applied to the skin daily to prevent further sun damage to the skin. We recommend using a medical sun protection product.
