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.
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 & Nurse Helen 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.
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.
Dermal Fillers are injected just below the skin or deeper, depending on the area 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 that she will be treating. 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 uses are not permanent. One type of filler that is used contains a molecule that actually stimulates the body to produce collagen and tends to give a more longer lasting effect.
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 local anaesthetic cream Dr Debenham injects using a very fine needle or canula so that the treatment is comfortable. She often uses a collagen mask after the treatment to minimise the signs of a treatment having been done.
• Forehead – reduction of horizontal wrinkles and often paired with Botox treatments
• Frown – reduction of the ‘number 11s’ and horizontal lines between the brows and often paired with Botox treatments
• Crow’s feet – reduction of the fine lines and often paired with Botox treatments
• Tired, sunken eye appearance – this is the ‘Tear trough’ area that affects all ages. Treatment here giving a rested, youthful look.
• Chin – increase in volume in a small chin.
• Lips – reduction of smokers lines, lipstick bleed area and increase in volume for thin lips or those that have lost volume with age.
• Cheeks – increase in volume of cheeks that have lost volume with age or addition of volume to define the cheek bones.
• Neck – reduction of the ‘necklace lines’ and often paired with Botox treatment
Often there is little obvious evidence of a treatment having been done but sometimes there is some swelling and bruising. Dr Debenham uses the latest ‘canula techniques’ to minimise the downtime.
The range of fillers used are 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.

Only tiny amounts of Filler are injected, so this treatment is not harmful. Very occasionally there may be slight swelling or even more rarely bruising at the injection site.
Dr Ros never rushes appointments, assesses your face at every consultation and presses the injected area to help avoid any bruising but this is still a possibility.
Immediately. This treatment has an effect almost instantly.
A little bit but a local aesthetic is used to help with this & there is also aesthetic within the filler itself.
