Dermal Fillers

Here at The Cooden Medical Group we only use temporary dermal fillers, meaning your body will break them down completely over a period of 6-12 months. We use two leading brands; Restylane® and Juvaderm®, both of which are thoroughly tested and have been proven to be safe, effective and long lasting. Both brands utilise hyaluronic acid, a product which is tolerated by most people due, to it being a substance that is found naturally in our body, responsible for lubricating the skin and joints.

Dermal fillers will help restore volume that is lost due to the ageing process, pump up cheeks and lips, erase wrinkles, even out folds in the skin and to give hands back their youthful appearance. The treatment has the bonus of also improving the skin’s hydration levels, promoting a firm, soft complexion with a radiant glow. This is great treatment for those wanting a very natural, youthful looking boost with immediate results and minimal downtime.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat the following issues:

  • Wrinkles and folds
  • Crow’s feet (around the outer corner of eyes)
  • Frown lines or glabella (between the brows)
  • Vertical smokers lines (above the top lip)
  • Smile lines or nasolabial lines (from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth)
  • Thinning of undefined lips
  • Loss of volume in cheeks
  • Sunken cheeks and weak chins
  • Ageing hands
  • dermal fillers can be used on the lips to help define them
  • the results of dermal fillers appear immediately, with results lasting up to a year
  • dermal fillers can help smooth your facial profile for a youthful appearance
  • dermal fillers and treatments are available at The Cooden Medical Group

More women than ever are turning to dermal fillers to correct lack of volume, smoothing the profile and creating a younger look. Personally, I cannot recommend them enough.

  • Why do I need dermal fillers?

    As we age, our collagen levels naturally diminish and facial fat pads decrease and shift down the face, causing sagging and a departure from the lifted ‘heart shape’ that is the sign of a youthful face. This happens earlier in your life if you exercise excessively or you are a frequent smoker, sun worshipper or drink too much alcohol. Dermal fillers simply replace the volume you have lost, offering long lasting and natural looking results.

    Are dermal fillers safe?

    Yes, as long as they are administered by a trained, medical practitioner experienced in this procedure. As hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your body this reduces the chance of an allergic reaction. As with all cosmetic treatments there is however a small risk of this and this is something we will discuss with you at your consultation.

    How long will the effects last?

    This varies between individuals and depends on factors such as your age and skin type. An unhealthy lifestyle can also diminish the length the time the product remains in your body. However, as a general rule, to maintain results you’ll need a repeat treatment after 6-9 months for cheeks, lines, wrinkles and folds, and after around 6 months for lips.

    Is the treatment painful?

    Not really. We use very fine needles to inject the product into or under the skin, depending on where you are being treated. The products we use contain the painkiller Lidocaine, so any discomfort is very minimal. For lip treatments we may use an anaesthetic nerve block, as used by your dentist.

    Is there any down time?

    After your treatment there may be a little redness, swelling, pain, itching or tenderness at the injection site. However, these symptoms resolve themselves after a day or two.
