Dermal fillers contain a gel that is injected into areas of depleted volume in the skin. These fillers attract moisture and increase in volume in the area, restoring a youthful and healthy appearance. At Emerald Medical Aesthetics, we use Juvederm Ultra and Revolax products which contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance occurring in the body, and come in a range of consistencies from light fillers for sensitive areas like around the eyes, to denser fillers for the deep creases of your face. The procedure typically takes between 15-30 minutes and creates instant, noticeable effects that can last for 9-12 months. Once the treatment is complete, the patient can continue on with their day.
Here at Emerald Medical Aesthetics, we offer both short-term and longer lasting dermal fillers, which can last from 6 to 24 months depending on the filler used and the area being treated. On the face, Dermal Fillers can be used to treat:
- Moderate to severe lines in the face
- Nasolabial grooves (nose to mouth lines)
- Marionette lines (mouth to chin lines)
- Frown lines
- Thinning lips
- Tear troughs (eye bags and hollows)
Dermal fillers can also be used to define and augment the lips. They contain a clear gel,hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body that adds volume to thin lips thereby augmenting shape and size. Because our lips are fuller when we are younger, we associate full lips with youthfulness. As we age, we lose volume and definition from our lips,while gravity plays a role in pulling down the corners of our lips, creating an aged and ‘sad’ appearance. By using dermal fillers, we can redefine the vermillion borders of the lips giving them a more contoured and well-defined appearance. Injecting dermal fillers into the body of the lip increases volume, giving the desired appearance of fuller lips. Together these procedures restore a youthful and plump appearance, enhancing your face and smile.
Our service is completely bespoke and tailored to the individual, so we adjust the amount of filler used to suit the requirement of each patient. The amount of filler needed to fulfil your needs will be discussed fully at your consultation with our experienced doctor.
Despite everything we do to prevent it, as we age, our cheeks lose volume. This has two effects: firstly, the loss of volume in the cheeks results in a flattened look of the cheekbones which takes away from our youthful appearance. Secondly, the tissues supported by the cheekbones begin to sag, giving rise to deep lines around the nose and mouth known as nasolabial and marionette lines and grooves.
Dermal fillers injected into the cheekbones skilfully and strategically will augment the appearance of the cheeks and also raise the sagging tissue from around the nose and mouth. This results in a youthful and fresher appearance to the face. This procedure can be combined with dermal fillers to the nasolabial and marionette line for a smooth and softened overall appearance.
Wrinkle Softening Treatments
If you want to look more youthful and refreshed,as everybody does,our experienced and professional doctor will work with you to achieve the results you desire: designing a customised plan tailored to you. Wrinkle softening treatments use Botulinum Toxin Type A,which significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead,eyes and eyebrows, allowing for a youthful and refreshed look. These treatments are commonly known as Botox® treatments. However,Botox® is a trade name for Botulinum Toxin Type A provided by Allergen Inc. Other examples of Botulinum toxin type A include Bocouture, Azzalure, Xeomin and Dysport.
Treatments of the Face
The face is our most prominent feature and is, therefore, the area that most of us would like to enhance in order to appear more youthful and refreshed. To soften any wrinkles and lines on your face, Botulinum Toxin is injected into the local muscles that cause the wrinkles in the forehead (frown lines), above the nose (anger lines) and around the eyes (crow’s feet):targeting the problem at its source. This results in the beautiful and more youthful facial appearance that we all desire: results from these treatments are usually visible within 2 weeks and can last for up to 4 months.
Treatments of the Neck
Our neck can be one of the most revealing features when it comes to ageing, with sagging and puckering of the neck being common signs of the ageing process. To relax and soften the lines and folds of the neck, we use a technique called Nefertiti Neck Lift, inspired by Egyptian queen, Nefertiti, who was noted for her elegant, swan-like neck. This treatment involves injecting small amounts of Botulinum Toxin in specified points of the neck,resulting in a reduction of stringy lines and sagging, and preventing the dreaded “turkey neck”. No longer will your neck give away your age: it will be as full and refreshed as the rest of you.

Non Surgical Rhinoplasty – Nose
May people suffer from an irregular shape to their nose which can vary from a slight bump on the nose to more marked irregularities of shape. Frequently they do not want to consider the expense and inconvenience of invasive surgery. Dermal fillers are used very effectively to improve the shape of the nose, reducing or eliminating irregularities in shape. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes with little or no recovery time.
Chin And Jaw Line
Dermal fillers are used very effectively in shaping the jaw line especially in creating a more chiselled and masculine jaw line in men.
Non Surgical Facelift
This highly effective procedure involves treating the:
- Cheek structure, volume and definition
- Tear troughs for eye bags / eye hollows
- Nose to mouth contours
- Downward smile
- Jowl area and jawline
- Chin reshaping
A great smile is produced not only by your teeth but also the position, curve and volume of your lips.
In some people the upper lip elevates more than 2mm above the border of the upper teeth producing visible gum. This can produce an unattractive smile. Injections of Botulinum toxin into the muscle activating the upper lip can reduce or eliminate a gummy smile without the need for invasive surgery. This procedure is often combined with lip fillers producing a beautiful effect.
Down Turned Mouth
Down turned angles of the mouth is one of the most obvious signs of ageing. It occurs as we lose volume in our face and lips and, combined with gravity, the corners of the mouth point downwards giving and ageing and ‘sad’ appearance. At Emerald Medical Aesthetics we can inject small amounts of Botulinum toxin into the muscles which pull down the angles of the mouth. This results in a very mild upturn in the angles of the mouth and a fresher, more youthful appearance.
Injections of Botulinum toxin is an excellent treatment for dimpled chin. It relaxes the muscles that pulls the tissues of the chin tightly thereby resulting in a relaxed and more youthful appearance to the chin.
Excessive Sweating (Hyperhydrosis)- Armpits
The term hyperhidrosis is used for excessive sweating. It affects approximately 1% of the population. Tiny injections of Botulinum toxin are injected superficially in the armpit interrupting the stimulation of the sweat glands by the nerves.
The procedure takes approximately 30 mins for both armpits and a reduction in sweat will be noticed in 2-10 days. Most people find a reduction in excessive sweating for around 8 months.
Wrinkle Softening Injections For Men
Over the last few years men have been flocking to aesthetic clinics for wrinkle softening injections and dermal fillers. In the professional and social world men, as well as women, now realise the increasing importance of a fresh and youthful appearance.
