Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Sculptra are very popular, quick injectable treatments that can soften facial wrinkles, lines and fill out hollows to recreate the smooth contours of younger skin. Fillers are popular with those seeking a swift, non-surgical solution for ageing skin that has lost volume as the collagen that previously helped to shape and support it has disappeared.

Dermal fillers achieve fantastic, lasting results. The active ingredient present in both Juvederm and Restylane, hyaluronic acid, is naturally found in the skin, tendons and muscles of humans and therefore combat an array of natural ageing symptoms such as wrinkles, ageing lines, nasolabial folds, crow’s feet, frown lines and ‘sad mouth lines’. It can also be used to augment lip volume and contour.

Sculptra, or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), is used in the treatment of facial fat loss – also called facial lipoatrophy. Facial lipoatrophy is a condition in which people lose fat in their faces, especially in their cheeks and around their eyes and temples. PLLA is injected into the skin in those areas, causing the skin to thicken via collagen neo-synthesis, improving the appearance of folds and sunken areas and masking the fat loss.

Frequently Asked Questions

Botox – or Botulinum Toxin – is a neurotoxin that inhibits nerve stimulation on muscles. It is used cosmetically to reduce or remove facial wrinkles. Botox injections contain a very small dose of Botulinum Toxin and relax the muscles that form the wrinkles. The effect of a Botox injection lasts approximately between 3 to 6 months.

Dermal Fillers are a soft tissue filler that is injected into the skin to help fill out facial wrinkles and cavities and add volume to the face, for a fuller, smoother appearance. Like Botox, these are temporary as they are eventually absorbed by the body. Often used cosmetically to soften facial wrinkles, lines and other skin imperfections and enhance facial volume.

There are many different types of fillers, each has its own specificities and tends to work better on certain areas and not in others. Some dermal fillers last longer than others.

Dermal Fillers for lips at Cadogan Cosmetics use reputable products such as Juvederm or Restylane which are designed to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and folds, or create more youthful and attractive facial contours by adding volume. When injected by an experienced Cadogan Cosmetics doctor, your lips will look fuller but natural.

Following a thorough consultation with your practitioner, the dermal filler that is selected as being the most appropriate for you is eased into either the lip border or body (or both) using a very fine needle and the procedure itself should take approximately 15 minutes. The product contains an anaesthetic but it may be possible to have a numbing cream applied to the area prior to the treatment if you would prefer. Results can be seen straight away.

At Cadogan Cosmetics we use only the safest hylauronic acid-based dermal fillers which are long lasting but not permanent. The effects will fade gradually but should last between 4 and 13 months depending on which treatment you have had. Following this, we recommend that you come back to us for a top up treatment. The filler will biodegrade in the skin naturally and disappear should you choose not to return for a top up treatment.

Most dermal fillers that we use at Cadogan Cosmetics include an added anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment virtually painless as it numbs the skin. If you feel that you would rather come in early for numbing cream application before your dermal fillers treatment, this is also possible.
