Complete Guide to Dermal Fillers in 2022
The older we get, the more time tells a story on our faces; our inherited genes, lifestyle, sun exposure and the good and bad times we’ve shared are clearly written on our faces for all to see.
Ageing is a part of life but unsurprisingly we are all on the hunt for the magic secret to eliminating the effects it has on our appearance.
Well, the search is over as Thérapie Clinic can provide a quick and simple procedure which provides rejuvenation and youthful looking skin for up to 18 months. Dermal fillers are the popular choice for turning back the years to naturally looking young, smooth skin. Discover all you need to know with our complete guide to dermal fillers at Thérapie Clinic.
What are dermal fillers and how do they work?
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment performed by injecting tissue-friendly gel into an area, commonly the face, to fill lines and wrinkles and increase volume.
The visible effects of ageing on the face, such as creases, fine lines and wrinkles are brought on by a decrease in the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen in the skin. At Thérapie Clinic we use Juvederm dermal fillers made from stabilised non-animal hyaluronic acid, which closely resembles the hyaluronic acid found naturally in the body. By boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, volume is added or created and the skin is visibly revitalised.
What can dermal fillers be used for?
Dermal filler can be used for treatments that focus on the face, specifically the lips, cheeks and the areas around the eyes and mouth.
Dermal fillers are usually used to:
- Create volume in the lips
- Enhance or reconstruct facial contours
- Soften wrinkles and creases in the skin
- Improve the appearance of scars
How long do dermal fillers take to work?
A dermal filler injection procedure will take between 15 and 60 minutes depending on the area being treated and results will be visible almost immediately.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers will last between 6 and 18 months.
The longevity of your fillers will depend on several factors including:
- Where the filler is used
- How much filler is injected within the procedure
- The speed it takes for your body to metabolise the filler material
You will notice a reduction in volume around the middle of the expected duration of the filler. We would recommend you get a touch-up at this point to sustain your results for longer.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Yes, dermal fillers are safe as long as they are carried out by trained and certified professionals.
Dermal filler injections have grown in popularity due to their safety, minimal side effects and reactions. Our dermal fillers have been used in more than 15 million treatments worldwide for over 15 years. Using the world’s most tried and tested HA dermal fillers available, we can ensure that their safety and effects are clinically proven and supported by extensive clinical data.
At Thérapie Clinic, we pride ourselves on the highest possible standards of safety. We have an exceptional team of highly trained professional staff who will only perform a treatment if they are completely secure in the knowledge that it is safe.
Are there any dermal filler side effects?
It is completely normal to experience temporary side effects such as redness, bruising and swelling at the injection site after your dermal filler procedure.
During your treatment your doctor will lightly massage the treated area to ensure even distribution and minimise any swelling.
In some cases reactions can occur and will normally arise immediately after the dermal filler procedure. Reactions can include itching, swelling, pain and tenderness. These reactions commonly subside shortly after injection and are usually resolved within a few days of the injection.
Your doctor will go through everything during the consultation stage, but feel free to contact us at any time if you have any further questions about the safety and possible side effects of dermal fillers.
Are dermal fillers painful?
When injected with a dermal filler you may feel some discomfort but the procedure should not be painful.
The Juvederm injections used at Thérapie Clinic contain a small amount of lidocaine, a pain reducing agent to minimise any pain or discomfort felt during the treatment.
It is completely normal for the treated area to be tender for 48 hours after your procedure.

Juvederm dermal fillers at Thérapie Clinic start from £250/€295 per treatment.
