Canterbury Dermal Fillers
– Plumping Skin, Restoring Facial Volume.
At our clinic, dermal fillers are injected into your skin to soften lines, folds and wrinkles and to also give volume to areas which have lost their support.
Different types of dermal fillers can also be used for facial recontouring to improve facial features and profiles.
Our most popular treatment areas include the lip filler, cheeks, tear troughs, mouth, chin and jawline.
HA fillers consist of a structural molecule found naturally in the skin as well as other connective tissues in the body.
The benefits of HA over the previous generations of collagen fillers is its ability to provide a longer lasting result as well as a much lower risk of allergic reaction. Modern preparations of HA, with new cross linking technologies, are now able to provide a result which can last anywhere from 6 months up to 18 months.
When dealing with cosmetic treatments in the face it is always essential to think of “what happens if things go wrong”… Our aesthetic practitioner and nurse prescriber will be able to look after you or prescribe if anything unexpected happens. What’s more, our aesthetic practitioner will be able to use an enzyme to dissolve the filler should the need arise.
We offer a wide range of advance aesthetic treatments like dermal fillers.

Safe and clinical environment.
Before carrying out treatment, our aesthetic practitioner see each and every patient for a thorough assessment and consultation. No two people are the same and no two cases are the same, therefore, you will receive a bespoke treatment plan based on your particular concerns, medical history or skin condition. This not only ensures your safety is upheld at all times, it also means that you’ll gain optimum results from treatment.
The nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds) are one of the most commonly treated parts of the face.The nasolabial fold represents the natural junction between the upper lip and the cheek. In some people this appears with age as a result of descent of the mid-face or cheek. In other people however it is present since childhood or adoslesence.
Making the distinction between the first group and the second group is vitally important. If you can’t remember if you had the fold when you were younger, it is always best to check back to some old photographs. In the first group, where the fold has appeared with age, treating it with filler can provide a very nice and rejuvenating result.
Treating the nasolabial fold in the second group of women however, who have had it as a feature of their face since their teenage years will almost always result in an unnatural look, particularly when the person attempts to smile. For this group, it is usually better to treat the cheek itself rather than the nasolabial fold.
Cheek enhancement involves the use of dermal fillers injected into the mid-face to add contour, shape, volume and structure to the face. Cheek enhancement can address multiple concerns in the face as the mid-face region (below the eyes to the lips) of often the first part of the face to show signs of ageing.
As we age we loose the fat pads under our skin which normally support the overlying skin and add contour to our face, begin to flatten and migrate down the face. Combined with a loss of subcutaneous tissue and changes to bone structure, this results in the loss of the natural contour of the cheek, flattening of the face and the development of nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) and jowl formation. By adding dermal filler to the deep layers of the skin and replacing the lost fat and bone it is possible to change the shape of the face, enhance the cheekbones and improve facial symmetry. The goal of restoring volume to the cheek area is not simply to make the cheek look fatter, but to recreate a more attractive facial contour and lift.
Treating the cheek area with dermal fillers as an initial treatment we can often address multiple concerns at once, giving an instant ‘liquid face lift’.
One of the biggest complaints I hear from women is the down turning at the corners of the mouth…
With the appearance of lines that run from the corner of the mouth down towards the chin – the so called marionette lines. These can be fairly quickly, easily and successfully treated with volume restoration using filler.
Treating this area is not simply a case of injecting the actual line, but feathering the volume across a wider area to blend the junction between the lower part of the cheek and the chin.
In youth, the lips tend to be full and voluptuous and as we age they lose volume and shape, becoming thin and flat. As a result, lip enhancement has become a popular treatment in anti-ageing clinics. Many women are afraid to have filler injected in their lips for fear of achieving the dreaded ‘trout pout’ look. So it is important to use softer fillers, usually the ones which are actually designed for filling fine lines. In terms of volume, less is more and it is almost always better to inject the red part of the lip rather than just the border, which can create a ducky profile view.
Another key point to note is that filler in the lips can last a long time, and longer than you may think. It is commonly believed that lip filler lasts somewhere around 6 – 18 months. Actually, it can easily last up to two years and if you repeat the treatment before the last lot has worn off, it is very easy to gradually build up too much and get the dreaded ‘trout pout’. Bottom line: in the lips, less is more.
It is rare to see a face that is perceived as young and attractive, male or female, that does not have a strong and well defined chin and jaw.
As we age, the lower jaw shrinks and we lose projection and definition of the chin. As a result of the jaw bone becoming smaller, the overlying soft tissues have less structure and support and so the skin appears loose and saggy.
Restoring volume to the chin can have a significant impact on the facial appearance, both improving the facial contours and proportions as well as on reducing the appearance of lose and lax skin.
Both men and women are suitable for this procedure. They typically fall into two groups: the first group is a typically younger group who have a congenitally small chin and the second group is an older group who have simply lost volume with age. In the younger group who have have congenitally small chin this simply means that the chin they were born with is too small for their face, leading to a disproportionate appearance. Volume can be added to either increase the projection of the chin, to make the chin vertically longer or to re-shape an chin unattractive contour. Often, a combination of these is required to achieve the most attractive facial contour and proportions. In the second group, the aim is to restore volume loss to create a younger appearance.
A liquid facelift involves injecting dermal fillers into the skin to plump up the skin. It differs from a surgical facelift in that it doesn’t involve cutting into the skin. The goal of a liquid facelift is to reduce sagging and wrinkles. It can also:
reduce sagging around jawline
fill your cheeks if they look gaunt
tighten wrinkles around your mouth
The ideal candidate for a liquid facelift using dermal fillers is someone with relatively few wrinkles and a small amount of sagging. If you have a lot of sagging skin, or if you want dramatic results, a surgical facelift might be better for you. Book a consultation and let us take care of your aesthetics.
