Dermal fillers are a non-permanent cosmetic injectable treatment which can effectively treat some of the deeper underlying signs of ageing, such as:
- loss of facial volume
- lines and wrinkles
- jawline sagging
- loss of lip definition and volume
They can help to smooth the key signs of ageing by restoring lost hydration and improving the skin’s volume, structure and texture.
“I recently was treated by Miss Balaratnam with fillers. I look very natural and have never been asked if I have “anything done” however friends often comment on ‘how well’ I look or how ‘calm’ I look”
S-Thetics Medical Director, Miss Balaratnam, holds the prestigious title of “Local Country Ambassador” (LCA) for Allergan, the world’s largest manufacturer of cosmetic injectable products.

The key ingredient of non-permanent facial fillers is Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – a type of sugar, which occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for maintaining skin volume and elasticity. HA is broken down within one to two days, and is constantly being replenished; however as we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes and the moisturising and plumping effects of HA decrease. By replacing lost HA, we can regain the skin’s smooth and lifted appearance. Importantly, HA fillers are fully reversible so can be quickly and easily removed should there be any need, unlike the older forms of permanent facial fillers like silicone.
S-Thetics use the Juvéderm® range of HA facial fillers which is the number-1 product range on the market, with over 25 years of experience and clinical trials demonstrating safety and efficacy. These products have a very smooth consistency, meaning that they can last for longer, result in less swelling and give a more natural look and feel. Depending on the area treated, results can last from 12-18 months. The Juvéderm® range also contains the mild local anaesthetic lidocaine (0.3%), which allows for a gentle injection experience, but you will also be offered a numbing cream.
|Areas dermal fillers can treat include:
Miss Balaratnam is well known for her ‘less is more’ approach to facial enhancement – her aim is to respect the individuality of your face, whilst helping to enhance your features to restore balance and harmony. The desired result is a healthy, refreshed glow – like after a good night’s sleep or a holiday – not to dramatically change the way you look.
With this in mind, Miss Balaratnam will advise exactly which Juvéderm® product is best to address your key ageing concerns and to achieve optimal results for your individual needs, such as:
Restoring youthful facial lift by enhancing cheeks, cheekbones and the chin area that may have become hollow or thin due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss
Gently restoring natural-looking lip volume, defining lip contours and treating the corners of the mouth which may have started drooping downwards
Smoothing fine ‘barcode’ lines around the lips and supporting the ‘marionette’ lines down to the chin
Provide support and improve the shape of deeper skin folds, such as nasolabial lines (from the nose of the mouth corners), temples and brows
The procedure usually takes around 30-45 minutes and results are immediate, long lasting and natural in appearance. Depending on the area treated, you can expect the results to last between 6-18 months.
This will be discussed in your consultation, but generally facial fillers can be used on a wide range of patients as they are primarily used for skin rejuvenation, replacing lost structure and volume in the face, as well as the reduction of lines and wrinkles. However, filler treatments are not suitable if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or undergoing IVF.
As with any medical procedure, there is a risk of unwanted side effects with HA dermal filler treatments. Most side effects are normally short-lived and often relate to the injection procedure. Following injection, there may be redness, slight swelling, or bruising around the injection area but these usually only last a few days.
