Facial Fillers London

Fillers are used mainly to restore facial shape and volume loss. They lift and tighten the skin and can also be used to soften lines, wrinkles and folds.

What results can I expect?

An instant lift with a younger, fresher appearance. The results with Dr Harris look completely natural and typically last 9-12 months.

How do they work?

Fillers (such as Juvederm) are made of a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and plumps the skin by improving its ability to retain water. Over time, the body loses hyaluronic acid and the skin starts to sag and forms wrinkles and folds. Fillers replace the lost hyaluronic acid to restore volume and shape. The fillers are available in syringes and are gently injected into the areas of the face where they are needed.

Is the treatment painful?

Juvederm fillers are injected with tiny needles and contain a local anaesthetic (Lidocaine 0.3%), so that the treatments are almost painless.

Are there side effects?

Hyaluronic acid fillers are safe and fully reversible. There may be some localised redness, tenderness, swelling and bruising but these tend to be very mild and temporary. As with all injections, there is a risk of infection, but this is very rare. More serious side effects and allergic-type reactions are extremely rare.

How much do Fillers cost?

Dr Harris offers a free Juvederm consultation in his London clinic, and treatments cost from £200.
