How does it work?
Injectable filler gel adds volume to the skin, plumping it out and giving the appearance of a smoother surface. Filler smoothes moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This treatment is generally used on the lower face for lines around the nose and mouth and lines around the lips (often called 'smoker's lines'). It can also be used to improve the appearance of scars or dents on the face.*
What will it involve?
Your doctor will inject small quantities of filler into the areas where you have lines/wrinkles or indents. The filler of choice used by Dr Leah is Juvéderm®. Juvéderm® is the leading facial filler available on the market and comes with a local anaesthetic which makes the process relatively painless. It should take approximately 20 minutes and the effects are instant.*
What is the result?
Smoothes out lines and wrinkles, producing an instant effect that will leave your face feeling younger and fresher and looking more youthful than ever before. Most patients need one treatment and the results last about 9 months to 1 year.*

Are dermal fillers safe?
Yes, as long as they are administered by a medical professional. The hyaluronic gel is completely natural, and over time, the filler will slowly dissolve, causing no harm to you.
What are the possible side effects?
Most side effects are mild and temporary e.g. redness, pain, swelling.
Cautions / contraindications
