Dermal fillers

Dermal filler facial injections are currently one of the most popular treatments in the field of medical aesthetics- and for a good reason.

Premium dermal fillers such as Teoxane enhance natural facial features by revitalising the skin and replenishing the lost volume with the most abundant skin component called hyaluronic acid.

Dermal fillers are also used for facial sculpting and contouring of cheeks or jawline and augmentation of lips, chin, nose-mouth lines and other facial features.

dermal filler facts

Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring under our skin. With age, depletion of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin leads to volume loss and ultimately saggy, wrinkled facial appearance. Hyaluronic acid injections enhance tissue hydration and restore lost volume.

lip filler

Lips are the most beautiful feature of a woman's or man's face that can enhance beauty. 

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a popular, safe and effective way of rejuvenating the lip and restoring the volume loss. 

With an in-depth anatomy knowledge and an appreciation of facial harmony, Dr Florentyna always strives to achieve natural enhancement without being over-filled. 

Commonly asked questions

 Are there any side effects?
Most common side effects associated with dermal filler enhancement are mild and short lived.
  • you may experience some mild tenderness post-treatment lasting few days
  • redness: this is normal and usually resolves quickly
  • swelling: some swelling is normal after treatment and may be worse the following day
  • bruising: as the procedure involves injections in the skin, bruising is common although not everyone will bruise. This can be anything from a small mark on the skin to extensive bruising which extends beyond the area treated and can last up to 7-10 days.
  • infection: Dr Florentyna adheres to strict infection control protocols and also you will receive appropriate aftercare advice to lessen this risk.
  • Cold sores (Herpes Labialis): Treatment around the lip area can exacerbate an outbreak of herpes. You will be asked about previous history of cold sores as part of your medical history. Preventative medication may be required prior to treatment to reduce the risk.
  • Lumps: Lumps may be present immediately after treatment due to product misplacement or migration or a lump may appear several weeks or months later in some cases. Lumps may appear as soft swellings or as hard nodules. They sometimes occur following an acute illness, such as a dental or sinus infection, or with exposure to excessive sunlight. If you develop a lump, it is recommended to arrange a face to face review.
  • Vascular Occlusion: This is a rare, but serious, complication from dermal filler injections. In this situation, your blood supply may have been compromised by filler that has caused a blockage or obstruction of normal blood flow.   A vascular occlusion will normally cause severe pain, an irregular change in colour of the area treated that is visible immediately after the treatment or soon afterwards and will require prompt treatment by Dr Florentyna to fully dissolve the filler.
