Rated 5/5

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical option to increase facial feature volume, soften creases, and treat fine lines and wrinkles. When carried out by an experienced medical professional, they are a safe, effective, and relatively simple procedure used on the face and body to quickly achieve natural-looking cosmetic results.

They contain hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps skin to retain water and supports the collagen and elastin.

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

Dermal filler treatments involve multiple small injections into the skin to administer the hyaluronic acid necessary to achieve the desired cosmetic effects. Treatment usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes, although this may vary depending on the area of treatment.

What areas can be treated with Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers can be used to treat many areas of the face including the lips, eyebrows, tear troughs, nasolabial and marionette lines.

  • Lips –  Dermal fillers are used to add natural-looking volume to the lips. Lip fillers help to establish a fuller looking effect and can help to replace lost volume.
  • Tear Trough Fillers –Tear trough fillers can be used to remove dark shadows around the eyes and provide a volumising effect that can help give a healthy glow to an otherwise tired-looking face.
  • Cheek Enhancement – Cheek fillers are an effective way to add volume to the cheeks and elevate them for a defined look. They fill out fine lines and wrinkles to create contour and definition.
  • Lower Face and Jaw Contouring – Dermal fillers used in this context can help to construct a contoured jawline. Contouring focuses on sharp lines and angles for men, and gentle curves for women. A defined chin and streamlined lower face are desirable facial appearances. Dermal fillers can improve the definition, proportion, and balance of facial features.
  • Eyebrow Filler – By administering a dermal filler under the eyebrow, support can be provided to create a lifting effect. This treatment can also smooth the appearance of the orbital rim, contributing to a more youthful look.
  • Nasolabial Lines – Deep nasolabial lines or mouth lines that run from the nose to mouth can be addressed through injections of the dermal filler by increasing volume and creating a softening effect. The aim of nasolabial line fillers is to improve your skin volume, leaving you with a fuller, youthful look.
  • Marionette Lines – Facial fillers are very effective in managing deep wrinkles such as marionette lines. Marionette lines occur at the outer corners of the mouth. Dermal filler treatment can softly roll out the wrinkles, resulting in a smoother appearance. In addition, dermal fillers can be used to volumise cheeks, replacing the reduced fat pads in that region.


Happy patients

I saw Dr Hawkes for filler treatments to the lower face for the first time last week. I have been having injectable treatments for years. It was a fantastic visit! She has a very gentle, warm and caring approach. I felt very safe in her hands and she explains things really well and guided me on the options to enhance and contour my features. Treatment was very comfortable, hardly any swelling and no bruising. Results are beautifully natural, I am thrilled! Thank you so much!

Frequently Asked Questions

Dr Hawkes is available to address your inquiries. Should you have questions, we kindly invite you to reach out.


Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

The FDA has approved hyaluronic acid fillers. The treatment is safe and effective when delivered by a medical practitioner, such as Miss Hawkes.

Are Lip Fillers Safe?

Lip fillers are generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced doctor like Miss Elizabeth Hawkes. However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, including swelling, bruising, and, less commonly, infection or allergic reactions. Miss Hawkes ensures all patients are fully informed and assessed for suitability before treatment.

Can Lip Fillers Be Dissolved?

Yes, one of the advantages of hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers is that they can be dissolved if necessary. An enzyme called hyaluronidase can be injected to safely and quickly dissolve the filler, returning the lips to their original state.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

As hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring chemical in the body, dermal fillers are eventually absorbed by the body, meaning the aesthetic changes from fillers usually last 6 to 18 months.

How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

The longevity of lip fillers can vary depending on:
  • the type of filler used,
  • the patient's metabolism and how their body reacts to the filler.
Typically, lip fillers last between 6 to 12 months. After this period, the fillers gradually dissolve.

How Should I Prepare for My Lip Filler Appointment?

Before your appointment, it's advisable to avoid alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, and any medications that can increase bruising and bleeding for at least 24 hours.

What Are Lip Fillers?

Lip fillers are an aesthetic treatment that involves injecting hyaluronic acid-based products into the lips to enhance volume, shape, and structure. The aim is to create fuller, more defined lips while maintaining a natural appearance.

What Should I Expect Immediately After Getting Lip Fillers?

Immediately after the procedure, it's common to experience some swelling and bruising. This typically subsides within a few days. Miss Hawkes provides detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the best results and comfort post-treatment.

When Will My Dermal Fillers Take Effect?

Dermal fillers take immediate effect following injection, giving some of the fastest-acting results from any cosmetic procedure.

Will I Feel Any Pain During the Procedure?

The injections may cause some discomfort, but this is typically minimal. Miss Hawkes may apply a topical numbing cream before the procedure to help minimise any pain.

Will I Require A Recovery Period Post-Treatment?

There is no downtime after dermal filler procedures. As with all injectable treatments, there may be slight bruising or swelling that can persist for the first 2-3 days after treatment but this will not usually inhibit the daily routine.
