Why Choose The Goddess Clinic for your Dermal Filler Treatment?

Nurse Dawn is an experienced aesthetic practitioner and uses her understanding of anatomy and the ageing process to educate patients about why they may look tired, have heaviness or deep lines. In a full clinical consultation, we take a holistic approach to developing a treatment plan focused on delivering exceptional results tailored to the patient’s specific aesthetic goals.

Nurse Dawn has a detailed medical knowledge of the products used in the skin clinic and can discuss them with patients at their consultation. We only choose premium products for all our treatments. These have been tried and tested for several years in clinical trials to prove their safety, as well as build a track record of delivering the best results for patients.

What is Dermal Filler?

The key ingredient in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance found and produced within the body. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar module that is broken down over time. Depending on the manufacturer, the hyaluronic acid can be synthetic or come from animals. There are products available that are suitable for vegan patients.

Naturally occurring hyaluronic acid is broken down every few days within the body. However hyaluronic acid in dermal filler is produced to last for months. This longevity allows it to be used in aesthetic treatments to add volume or reverse the visible signs of ageing in patients faces, neck, and hands.

There are also dermal filler products that are not made from hyaluronic acid. These tend to be products that cannot be dissolved. Patient safety is our priority at The Goddess Clinic, although Nurse Dawn is trained in using ‘permanent’ filler products, she believes that having the option to dissolve is safer in the event of a complication. Because we naturally produce hyaluronic acid there is also a reduced chance of allergic reactions using hyaluronic acid products.

Why Use Dermal Fillers?

Dermal filler can be used to volumise, restructure, and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Studies have shown dermal filler can also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin within the skin.

 

Hyaluronic acid fillers come with the additional benefit of attracting water within the body, bringing hydration to the area the product is placed.

How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost?

The cost is dependent on the patient’s aesthetic goals. As a rule of thumb, if we have a first-time patient in the skin clinic, who is looking for a more rejuvenated and fresh appearance, we estimate 1 syringe of filler per decade of age. The first syringe is priced at £250 the subsequent syringes are £150. Lip filler range from £200- £230.

 

Where Can Dermal Fillers Be Used?

Everyone will likely know about dermal fillers use in lip enhancements. However dermal filler is a versatile aesthetic treatment that can be used all over the face and some other areas of the body.

Lip, Cheek, Jaw and Chin Fillers

Cheek filler is a popular treatment that can support the tissues that may have fallen forward with ageing and can re-establish the foundations for facial rejuvenation.

The temple area is often overlooked but can be an important step in an aesthetic treatment plan. Dermal filler in the temple can resolve a heavy eye area or hollowing. This will produce a more youthful appearance.

Treatment in the jaw and chin area can change a patient’s profile. Experienced aesthetic practitioners can place filler to improve skin tension while softening or sharpening a patient’s features depending on the patients desired outcomes.

Marionette lines (mouth to chin lines) and nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) can also be treated with dermal filler. Adding filler here can help to support the skin and soften the movement of tissue.

Dermal filler can be used in the lips, nose, and occasionally the forehead. These areas finish off our facial aesthetic. Many of our patients feel they have small lips and wish to build them up with lip filler. It is important any lip augmentation is in proportion with a patient’s features.

Dermal Filler can also be used in other parts of the body such as the hands and neck. These provide hydration to the area and support to the skin.

 

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Generally, dermal filler products will last between 6-18 months. There are several factors that can affect how long treatments will last.

The product chosen influences longevity. Thicker products tend to last longer as there is a higher percentage of hyaluronic acid and crosslinking, taking the body longer to breakdown. The product chosen will depend on the area patients wish to be treated.

The location of the treatment can influence how long the filler lasts. Dermal filler placed in the lips will typically degrade quicker than filler in the cheeks. This is because our lips move more regularly, and therefore the muscles are used more often than in the cheek area.

Another element is patient’s lifestyle. Known lifestyle factors that can reduce dermal filler longevity are smoking, sunbeds, and a particularly physically active lifestyle.

FAQ
Will my information be kept confidential?

Yes, we follow in line with GDPR and will only share your information if you tell us too. e.g consent to using images for social media and marketing is asked on your consent form before every procedure.

What is a cooling off period?

This is when you are given time to process the information provided to you about a treatment or a bespoke plan before purchase.

Will it hurt?

For most injectable treatments we use topical anaesthetic to help minimise any discomfort. We also use special equipment to make the process as comfortable as possible. Patients are asked prior to any injectables to avoid alcohol and extreme heat for at least 24hrs as this can cause heightened sensitivity.

Will I get bruising or swelling?

This is common after any injectable treatment. We ask a couple of things from patients prior and after treatment to minimise this. No alcohol for 24hrs, no steam room/sauna etc.

Is there any down time?

With most injectable treatments, collagen induction therapy and some skin peels there maybe down time. If after care is followed then this should keep it to a minimum.
This will be fully explained at your assessment.

How long before I see results?
  • Most patients will see results from fillers immediately

  • Toxin can take up to 2 weeks to see full effects.

  • Most skin treatments that cause stimulation of collagen can take up to 3 months.

  • Skin care can take up to 6 months.

These are guides only and our Nurse will be able to advise you further.

Can I wear make up after my treatment?

Its advised not to wear make up for 24 hours to allow the skin to heal. Applying makeup may cause breakouts or an unwanted reaction.

What if I cant make my appointment?

TGC reserves the right to decline performing a treatment if the risks outweigh the benefits.

Whats the difference between fillers and anti wrinkle injections?

Fillers replace lost volume and can soften wrinkles by filling static lines. Anti wrinkle injection prevent muscle movement to reduce the creation of wrinkles or lines.
Nurse Dawn will be able to explain which treatment will be more suited to your concern.

For skin treatments we can help from ages of 16, with parental consent.
For all injectable treatments you must be 18 years old.
If you look under 25 we will ask you for ID, so please ensure you bring this with you. Failure to provide this will mean we will not be able to carry out any treatment.

What if I have a complication?

Nurse Dawn will explain any potential complications prior to treatment.
In the event of a complication, you will be treated as soon as possible, and supported throughout until it is resolved.

How can I pay?

What will we discuss at the assessment?

The assessment is the chance for you to ask any questions about any of the treatments and have these answered.
We will discuss what your main concerns are and how we can minimise these and meet your expectations.

Do I have to book a treatment at my assessment?

No. There is no obligation to book a treatment at any point in an assessment. We offer a cooling off period so you can have time to process and think about any procedure.
