Feel more confident
in your skin.
These can serve a number or purposes to keep you looking great. From smoothing out deep lines, creases and wrinkles, to contouring and plumping up, or even covering up what you’d prefer to keep to yourself.
Dermal fillers are injectable soft tissue fillers that help to fill in wrinkles at the site of injection, restoring a smooth appearance to the skin. They can be used to fill in deep lines, creases and wrinkles in the face, and add volume to lips that are wrinkled or thin. They can also be used to contour areas of the face, plump up the cheeks, and improve scars or blemishes on the facial tissue. They are also effective for those who want to reduce signs of ageing, or treat unsightly scars or blemishes on the face, without having to undergo expensive and complicated plastic surgery.
As you’d expect from Shields, dermal fillers are applied by our fully qualified professionals in a completely safe, professional and pain-free environment 7 days a week.

What are dermal fillers used for?
Dermal fillers can be used to fill in deep lines, creases and wrinkles in the face, and add volume to lips that are wrinkled or thin. They can also be used to contour areas of the face, plumpen the cheeks, and improve scars or blemishes on the facial tissue. They are also effective for those who want to reduce signs of ageing, or treat unsightly scars or blemishes on the face, without having to undergo expensive and complicated plastic surgery.

- They are cheaper and much less invasive than surgery. In fact, dermal fillers are a totally non-invasive procedure.
- There is no recovery period.
What are they made of?
Some dermal fillers are made from a clear gel, the various types distinguished by thickness and viscosity, which determines the length of time that they last.
What is the procedure?
Dermal fillers do not require any anaesthetic as the main brands (Juvederm Ultra and Restylane) already contain an anaesthetic. The procedure is straightforward and simple with no surgical elements. Make-up can actually be applied 30 minutes after the procedure has been carried out and the effects last for up to 9 months. Optimal results will be seen if patients attend regular repeat treatments. Very small needles are used and there is very little pain associated with the injections.
How do they work?
Dermal fillers are injected into the tissue beneath the skin. They expand the neurofibres and tauten the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Is it painful?
Most dermal fillers contain quantities of local anaesthetic that reduce injection pain, and it also numbs the skin where it is injected. For this reason, filling of particularly sensitive areas such as the lips can be undertaken with minimal discomfort to the patient. Sometimes, there can be momentary pain followed by redness at the injection site.
How long do they last?
The results of a dermal fillers treatment are instant, and can last for up to nine months.
When will I see results?
You will see the benefits of the treatment within 3 days. Most patients experience no side-effects and there is no recovery period associated with dermal fillers. Simply turn up for your appointment and resume your daily activities straight away.
