Restore your natural healthy smooth youthful appearance. 

Dermal fillers are injectable products that soften and correct lines, wrinkles and folds in the skin. In addition, they are commonly used to augment and enhance the lips, cheeks and facial contours. Dr Aleid is well known for her aesthetic eye and expertise with injectables, preferring a natural looking result that is flattering rather than an obvious and overfilled look. 

Two types of (non permanent) fillers are used:

  1. Hyaluronic acid fillers: are made from biocompatible, biodegradable materials and contain Hyaluronic Acid, which replace the naturally existing substance in you skin that repairs damaged tissue. Depending on the treatment indication a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers can be used, each with different characteristics. Dr Aleid uses Juvederm hyaluronic acid fillers.
  2. Radiesse®: apart from the filling effect Radiesse also has an effect on the collagen production. The skin structure improves significantly and feels firmer than before. Because of this reason a lifting effect can be achieved ('Liquid Facelift'). Because Radiesse® is a very firm filler, it is ideal for the treatment of deep lines and volume restoration.

  • Natural - tissue tailored HA resembles the skin’s own material
  • Long lasting - but not permanent (typical results last 6-24 months)
  • Non-animal - reducing the risk of adverse reactions (only 1 in 20 000)
  • Quick and simple- most treatments take ‹ 30mins to complete.

What happens during my appointment?

  • Informed consent with pre-treatment photos
  • Local anaesthetic cream or injections used to increase comfort
  • Dermal filler injected into skin via fine gauge (27-31G) needle
  • Injection sites massaged to promote even integration into tissue
  • Tissue expansion associated with slight burning / stinging sensation

Dermal fillers aftercare

  • DO NOT apply make up or creams for at least 6 hours
  • DO NOT expose the treatment areas to extreme heat (eg sunbeds / sauna) for at least 2 weeks, as this may affect product durability
  • DO gently massage the treatment areas for up to 2 weeks to avoid unevenness
