Small amounts of dermal filler are injected directly into the skin using an ultrafine needle. The gel helps to plump up the skin, thereby smoothing out lines and wrinkles. If the lips or facial contours are being treated, the filler adds volume, restores shape and gives a fuller appearance. Our policy is ‘less is more’ so we will always aim to give you a natural, subtle look.
Dermal Fillers Day of Procedure
Although Dermal Filler treatments are currently unregulated in the UK meaning that any aesthetic practitioner can perform them, here at The Private Clinic you will only ever be treated by a fully trained and experienced registered nurse, doctor or surgeon.

Most dermal fillers include an added anaesthetic, which makes the treatment virtually painless. Topical anaesthetic can also be applied prior to treatment to make it more comfortable.
The length of the treatment will depend on the areas being filled, but generally the procedure takes about 30 minutes.
