Dermal Filler

Restore volume and reduce wrinkles

From £375

The Problem

As we age we lose the volume in various areas of our face; the cheeks, temples, lips and around the mouth. We also lose the elasticity of the skin and the combination leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. Dermal fillers are injected to re-volumise and tighten the skin of the face as an alternative to surgery.

The most important factors when deciding to have dermal fillers are the expertise of the practitioner, your safety and the product that is being injected.

Facial Assessment

Dr Debenham was involved in the development of the Galderma Harmony Facial Assessment Process and will guide you through this at your complimentary consultation.

Dr Debenham will personally carry out your dermal fillers, Botox and follow ups. You will be required to sign a consent form after being given the time to ask any questions. Photos will be taken before each treatment.

What are Dermal Fillers?

The soft hyaluronic acid gel in dermal fillers closely resembles the natural hyaluronic acid of the body that diminishes with age.  Some dermal fillers also stimulate the production of collagen so tightening the skin.

How do Dermal Fillers work?

Dermal Fillers are injected (using a needle or cannula) just below the skin or deeper, depending on the area being treated, to plump up the skin giving instant results. There are many types of filler that Dr Debenham will choose from for the specific area of your face. The majority of fillers are pure hyaluronic acid that is present in the body naturally. If you liken your skin to a mattress, the springs are the collagen and the padding around is the hyaluronic acid. All the fillers Dr Debenham use are not permanent. One type of filler that is sometimes used contains a molecule that actually stimulates the body to produce collagen. The fillers used at Radiance MediSpa are from the Restylane, Belotero, Croma and Amalian ranges.

How are Dermal fillers injected?

It is important for you to feel comfortable with the results of dermal fillers so you will have plenty of time to discuss what you are looking to achieve and see before and after pictures from treatments that Dr Debenham has carried out.

After the skin has been numbed using a tiny local anaesthetic injection the filler is injected injects using a very fine needle or cannula so that the treatment is comfortable. A cannula is a ‘blunt needle’ – this may sound a strange thing to use but it is more comfortable, safer & causes much less bruising. Most clients leave with minimal to no signs of a treatment having been done but remember that there is a risk of bruising.

Results from Dermal Fillers

• Forehead – reduction of horizontal wrinkles and often paired with Botox treatments. This is usually done using Viscoderm Hydrobooster – a course of 2 treatments 8 weeks apart. (£425 + £325). A treatment with Viscoderm can cover a large area of the face and not just one specific area.

• Frown – reduction of the ‘number 11s’ and horizontal lines between the brows and often paired with Botox treatments. This is usually done with Restylane classic. Usually £395

• Crow’s feet – reduction of the fine lines and often paired with Botox treatments.This is usually done using Viscoderm Hydrobooster.

• Tired, sunken eye appearance – this is the ‘Tear trough’ area that affects all ages. Treatment here giving a rested, youthful look. This is done using Amalian SF 16. Only Dr Debenham does this treatment &and results usually last a year or more. this is done in 2 stages, 2 weeks apart & the cost is fixed at £550.

• Chin – increase in volume in a small chin. Looking at your profile using the VISIA scan is helpful before considering this. Correcting an imbalance can often make the nose look smaller.

• Lips – reduction of smokers lines, lipstick bleed area and increase in volume for thin lips or those that have lost volume with age. Again, here, a change in the profile can make dramatic results. NB We do not favour large unnatural looking lips.

• Cheeks – increase in volume of cheeks that have lost volume with age or addition of volume to define the cheekbones. Clients often ask for the lines from the nose to the mouth to be filled but it is normally the cheeks that need addressing. The cost is dependant on the volume of filler used and product used but is usually £395- £595

• Neck – reduction of the saggy skin, ‘necklace lines’ and sometimes paired with Botox treatment. Profhilo is our favoured treatment for necks. A course of 3, one month apart is required then one every 4-6 months. Sometimes Aliaxin S&R is also used.

Downtime and aftercare

Often there is little obvious evidence of a treatment having been done but sometimes there is some swelling and bruising. We use the latest ‘cannula techniques’ to minimise the downtime and increase safety. Do not touch the area without washing your hands as this may introduce infection. Do not sleep and so press on the area that has been treated for at least 48hrs. Do not do vigorous exercise or get excessively hot for 48hrs as this may rarely cause bruising. if you have any concerns you must call the clinic 01392 277799.

The range of fillers used is specifically chosen for their safety and lack of downtime. Please note that Lesley Ash had permanent fillers in her lips and had infections that caused her deformity. Dr Debenham does not use any permanent fillers.

Case Studies



Dr Ros absolutely lived up to my expectations. Not only does she expertly understand every element of facial treatments with botox and filler, but she can explain it in the detail so many practitioners do not do. She is a cautious and compassionate Dr who is an expert on the contours of the face and what is and isn’t required for the patient, I am thrilled with the obagi retinol , its just the best product out there & any clinic stocking it knows its stuff. Fantastic botox results, quicker then any i’ve had before as started to show within a week.

Lip, Cheek, Chin & Tear Trough

I’ve had derminal fillers in many places and totally in love with it! I couldn’t be without it and would not go anywhere else. Dr Ros has your full intrest at heart as she doesn’t do it by amounts, instead it’s based on what you need to enhance your area of concern. This provided me with confidence that she cares about my appearance as apposed to my money. I have built up a great report with Dr Ros and would trust her with anything. She excels in everything she does and makes you feel a million dollars by not only her treatments but her kind words too.
