At Natural Face Aesthetics, we believe in a ‘less is more’ approach to dermal filler treatments.
Dermal fillers contain a gel like substance called hyaluronic acid. These injections restore lost volume and smooth out lines and wrinkles caused by ageing. They are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available today.
We only use FDA approved dermal fillers. We ONLY use Teoxane products because of their excellent safety profile and natural looking results.
Our most popular

- Sleep and smokers lines
- Lip augmentation (volume and shaping)
- Cheek augmentation (lift and volume)
- Nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
- Marionette lines (mouth to chin lines)
- Tear trough (eye bags)
Are dermal fillers safe?
In the right hands, dermal fillers are very safe and effective and in general fillers have very low complication rates. Common side effects can include redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site for a few days after treatment. More serious complications are very rare and will be discussed with you on consultation.
Dermal fillers are not a prescription only medicine, the UK currently lacks any kind of regulation surrounding who is injecting them so it is vital to go to a qualified professional for your treatment to avoid the possible side effects. There are countless fillers on the market and not all of them have clinical trials to support their use.
Before your treatment, you have a thorough medical consultation. We will take pre-treatment photos and make sure you fully understand the treatment and are suitable for it. We usually use local anaesthetic cream or injections to increase comfort during the treatment.
Depending on the treatment area we may use a needle or a cannula to place the product under the skin.
Some patients may experience a mild stinging or burning sensation as the product is injected, but any discomfort should be minimal due to the anaesthetic.
Injection sites will be massaged to ensure that there are no lumps or bumps and to ensure the even integration of the product into the tissue.
