Advantages of Dermal Fillers
As our skin ages, it loses the collagen that helps shape and support it. Natural lines and wrinkles deepen. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and even stress can all age your appearance. The facial features will begin to lose volume giving sunken cheeks and jowling, “dragged down” appearance.
Our range of premium dermal filler treatments include Restylane, Juvederm and Teosyal and can address all these problems, without the need for surgery. These are the good products and achieve a smoother, more natural and youthful looking skin.
A personal treatment plan will be created during your consultation and our practitioner might include a combination of dermal filler techniques.
Dermal fillers offer a gentle and safe anti-ageing treatment for long-lasting skin renewal without the need for surgery. They are also effective in restoring loss of volume to enhance lips and cheekbones and cheeks.
Dermal Filler Procedure
The area to be treated is identified and marked. The skin is cleaned with a skin preparation.
Often a vibrating device is used to distract from any discomfort. Sometimes we even use a numbing cream 30-45 minutes before the treatment or ice to numb the area. Most of the fillers contain local anaesthetic that create a mild numbing effect. The filler is then injected into the skin using an ultra fine needle to minimise discomfort.
We will usually massage the product before you leave and check to see evenness. We advice that you do not massage it yourself. To reduce the swelling you can use some ice wrapped in a damp cloth. Arnica cream can help reduce any swelling or bruising that you may have.
EA Clinic offers a choice of different lip dermal fillers, including Volbella, Juvederm Ultra, Restylane and Teosyal.
If lips are to be treated a dental block may be offered or you may request it. Often we use ice to number the area. For large volume treatments we will use a cannula.
For many people, fuller and more sensuous lips come high on their wish list and these can be created using material naturally found in the body. A simple and safe temporary Dermal filler such as Juvederm, Volbella, Teosyal injection treatment can add volume and definition, enhance small thin lips, balance our asymmetric lips or reduce the appearance of those fine, vertical lines.
The best way to give lips a fuller, plumper appearance and hence a more attractive, youthful appearance is to restore lost volume and moisture with dermal fillers that contain the body’s own natural material, hyaluronic acid.
The filler is injected into the lips to define the lip borders and/or create a fuller, plumped-out effect. As much or as little filler as required will be injected to give a subtle or more dramatic result.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their shape.
Small quantities of filler are injected into the border of the lips or body of the lip depending on the desired effect. The process may be uncomfortable and topical local anaesthetic creams may be applied to reduce any discomfort. It usually takes approximately 30 minutes and the effects are instant.
At EA Clinic, we use synthetic dermal fillers that are extremely safe and have a very low incidence of allergic reaction
Lip borders can be defined and the shape and size of the lips can be enhanced either subtly or dramatically depending on the result the client desires. This treatment is also ideal for removing lines and creases around the mouth area (including “smoker’s lines”).
The results can be seen immediately.
The result generally last between 5 to 12 months.
You may have swelling for 24-72 hours, especially with injections in the lips. It is recommended to avoid planning social events for 48 hours.
After the treatment(s) some common injection-related reactions might occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve spontaneously within 2 to 10 days.
Mild bruising or a slight blush might appear at the injection site immediately following treatment and may last for 2-10 days.
Do not use if you are pregnant, breast feeding or have a sensitivity to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
Face, neck, decolletage and hands.
Our dermal fillers do not require a skin test first as they do not contain any animal-derived products.
The products contain water and hyaluronic acid with or without a local anaesthetic and have the appearance of clear gels.
Hyaluronic acid is made from non-animal products and is totally natural. It has been used for many years without any serious long-term side effects.
Dermal fillers take 30-45 minutes depending on the number of lines and wrinkles being treated.

I can’t recommend EA clinic enough. I have had several procedures there now (vaser liposuction, mole removal and peels) and between Gill and Dr Anthony I have been so well looked after. They are consistently professional, passionate and clear in the options they provide you. Whether it is consultation, procedure or aftercare Dr Anthony always has so much time to make you feel at ease and fully informed. Both Gill and Dr Anthony are also friendly which is so lovely and welcoming as a patient. Overall I feel so much happier and confident since seeing the team at EA Clinic.
