Dermal fillers

At Space Healthcare in Leamington Spa, we offer a range of dermal filler treatments so that you can look and feel your best.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like substances of varying viscosities. They can be used in all manner of ways to sculpt and shape facial contours, fill lines and wrinkles, and even help the skin rejuvenate through increased hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin fibres.

Dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar within the body. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for cushioning and hydration in your skin. As we age, levels of HA within the body deplete rapidly, leaving the skin dehydrated, dry and sagging. Lines and wrinkles can appear, and the skin can take on a hollow and dull appearance. Using injectable dermal fillers to plump out the skin, hydrate and fill areas in need of volumising can produce astounding results, in one treatment session.

Dermal fillers treat many concerns, including thinning or ageing lips or lips which are asymmetrical or misshapen (read more here), sunken cheeks, deep temples, under eye bags and dark circles, a misshapen nose, a weak chin or jowls, an undefined jawline, deep-set lines and wrinkles. Skilled injectors can even perform facelifts without surgery.

Am I suitable for dermal fillers at Space Healthcare?

Before any non-surgical treatment here at Space Healthcare, we request that you attend an initial no-obligation consultation with one of our practitioners. This meeting allows you to describe your facial concerns and ask as many questions as you have about your dermal filler procedure. You’ll get a facial examination and a medical history check. This ensures that fillers are suitable for your concern, and that you’re fit and well to go ahead with treatment.

What’s involved in a dermal filler treatment at Space Healthcare?

Before the treatment takes place, the area to be treated may be numbed with a topical anaesthetic for your comfort. Once the numbing cream has taken affect, your practitioner will inject a measured dosage of a specifically selected dermal filler in to the area.

A regular needle may be used for the procedure, though cannulas are now being used more regularly for dermal filler treatments. Cannulas, which are rounded tipped needles, help to minimise bruising as they glide easier under the skin and past delicate blood vessels and veins.

Once the treatment is complete, you will be able to return to your daily activities, though adhering to any aftercare instructions that your practitioner will offer you.

Do dermal fillers hurt?

As with any injectable procedure which involves the use of needles or cannulas, there can be some discomfort or strange sensations such as pulling or tugging of the skin, but the treatment should not be painful. Most dermal fillers now contain Lidocaine, injectable anaesthesia that numbs the area as the needle injects the substance.

Cannulas minimise discomfort versus needles because they glide through the tissues of the skin and do not pierce the nerves, which causes pain. If you are particularly worried or sensitive to pain, your practitioner may offer you an injectable nerve ​‘block’ to numb the treatment area completely, but this is not usually necessary as a topical anaesthetic is usually sufficient.
