Dermal fillers are used to restore lost volume and fill deep folds, wrinkles and fine lines. Fillers contain a gel called hyaluronic acid which is injected under the skin. The results can redefine your facial contours, smooth away lines and wrinkles whilst also improving the skin’s integrity. Results are immediate and last 6 – 18 months depending on the product used and area treated. Specialising in facial re-volumisation, the Harbourside Clinic offers the 8 point lift and uses all aspects of the MD codes to gain natural facial balance. We use the Juvederm Vycross range, Emervel, Restylane and Belotero, as we believe they provide the highest quality products and obtain the best results.

A local anaesthetic is usually applied for 45 minutes prior to your treatment and the treatment it self usually takes 15-45 minutes.
We use the highest quality dermal fillers which are clinically proven to ensure safety and efficacy. The products consist of a gel made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural polymer present in the body, hence there is no need to patch test. As dermal fillers are administered by injection it is important that the treatment is carried out by a fully trained and experienced practitioner. A thorough consultation is carried out where the expected outcomes, benefits and potential risks will be discussed.
