Dermal filler is an injectable solution of hyaluronic acid, that fills the soft tissue under the skin. Dermal fillers are ideal for filling in under-eye hollows, adding volume to the lips and cheeks, straightening the nose and enhancing facial features.

  • What areas can be treated with dermal filler?
    Dermal filler is most popularly used to add volume to the lips, to make them look larger or more balanced. It is also used to contour the face, by adding volume to the cheeks and chin and defining the jawline. A very popular treatment at Adorn Aesthetics Hampshire, is nose reshaping (also known as "non-surgical rhinoplasty"). Please get in touch if you are unsure which area you would like treated, or book a free consultation via our booking page.
  • How quickly will I see results?
    Results from dermal fillers are usually immediate. You may experience some swelling or bruising for a couple of weeks after treatment. Final results will be seen once this subsides.
  • How long does it last?
    The longevity of dermal filler depends on many factors. This includes which area is being treated, the brand of filler used and individual metabolism and lifestyle. At Adorn Aesthetics Hampshire, we use Teosyal (by Teoxane), which contains high amounts of hyaluronic acid and is one of the longest lasting dermal fillers. It is a "high end" brand and widely used all over the world and is especially loved in the renowned clinics of Harley Street, London.
  • Does it hurt?
    Some patients report mild discomfort when having dermal filler treatments, and many say it doesn't hurt at all. This will depend on the pain tolerance of each individual. At Adorn Aesthetics we apply numbing cream prior to treatment and have calming music and a stress ball for you to squeeze!
  • Are there any side effects?
    Most people find that the injections cause only mild local pain and tenderness. There may be swelling on or around the treated area, which can last up to 2 weeks. Occasionally swelling can last longer, depending on the area treated and how quickly the individuals body heals. Bruising is also possible. All other potential side effects will be discussed at your appointment.
  • Will my results look natural?
    Sarah at Adorn Aesthetics specialises in providing natural and subtle facial enhancements, but each treatment is tailored to your individual goals.
  • What pre / post care instructions should I follow?
    Pre-treatment: - Do not drink any alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to your treatment. - Avoid blood thinning medications, including ibuprofen and aspirin. Please consult with your GP before pausing any prescription medications. Post treatment: - Do not drink alcohol or consume any blood thinning medications (as above), for at least 48 hours after your treatment. - Avoid rubbing or touching the treated areas during the healing stage. You can lightly pat the area to dry after washing, or to remove makeup. - Do not apply makeup to the treated area for 48 hours after treatment. - Avoid vigorous exercise, extreme heat, saunas or sunbeds for 48 hours after your treatment. - You can use arnica cream to help with bruising. - Paracetamol can be taken to help with any mild pain post procedure. We will provide you with an aftercare pack after your treatment, advising of the full post procedure instructions.
  • Is there any downtime?
    You may experience some redness, tenderness, swelling and potentially bruising after your treatment. However, downtime is not required, and you can return to work/normal daily activities straight after your treatment (whilst following the aftercare advise).
