Dermal fillers are a safe and easy way to bring back volume and vitality to your face when the years have begun to take their toll, which is why this versatile treatment has become extremely popular.
They are designed to be used on the lines that are visible when the facial muscles aren’t moving, known as static lines, for a subtle lift and a refreshed look. Fillers work by using hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the human body that attracts water to the skin.
Hyaluronic acid naturally depletes with age, which is one of the reasons why older people appear to lose volume in their cheeks and their skin develops more lines.
Dermal fillers are a safe way of putting hyaluronic acid back into the skin to plump it up, and the added volume softens existing lines as well as helping to prevent new ones from developing.
Because hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body, dermal fillers are unlikely to produce an allergic reaction, although we will always check your medical history before treatment begins.
In the consultation we will examine your face, neck and upper chest and explain the treatment options in detail. Any recommendations given by Andre, our facial cosmetics clinician, will be for subtle improvements in your appearance. Andre is a qualified GP who has worked with facial aesthetics since 2000.
It takes about 20 minutes to administer the fillers using a small needle. There will be a brief and small amount of discomfort while the injections take place and some effects will be visible immediately.
When the serum settles two or three days later the full results will be visible, which last from six to 24 months. Possible side effects include temporary tenderness, redness, swelling or, in rare cases, bruising.
The extent to which these side effects occur is largely down to the skill of the practitioner who is injecting the dermal fillers — at Portmore we have one of the country’s most experienced practitioners in Andre.

Wherever you live in the UK, the answer to this question is the same – you must be over eighteen years of age to receive dermal fillers. It doesn’t matter if your parents or guardians give their permission, a registered practitioner can only legally provide treatment to under eighteens where the procedure has been approved by a doctor and is not deemed as being for ‘cosmetic’ purposes. Originally designed to fill the natural line and wrinkles that develop with age, there’s a growing trend to use dermal fillers as an effective way to enhance and define other areas of the face - such as cheeks – to create a more voluptuous appearance. For this reason, dermal fillers are now a popular treatment enjoyed by adults of all ages. If you’re wondering if dermal fillers are right for you, why not book a free consultation?

Dermal fillers are not permanent. You can expect treatment to last anywhere between six months and two years. Exactly how long your fillers last will depend on the type and quantity of filler used. Your natural metabolic rate is also a key factor, as some people’s bodies will naturally break down fillers at a faster rate than others. Habits such as smoking, and overexposure to the sun, can also impact their lasting power. The good news is that you can have your dermal fillers touched at any time, meaning you can continue enjoying a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
