What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical injectable treatment, which involves injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle.
Dermal fillers are used to smooth out wrinkles and folds, even out scars, create youthful facial contours and add volume to lips.
Dermal fillers can be used to treat various skin concerns which include lack of volume, shallow to deep wrinkles and folds such as smile, marionette and lipstick lines and those at the corners of the mouth, chin, neck and hands.
Correct administration, selection of product by a medical professional can subtly smooth, soften, contour and tone the skin.

Dermal Fillers FAQs
"Will I look dramatically different?"
No. Our practitioners work like artists and will ensure a natural look is maintained. During your consultation, your doctor or pharmacist will discuss the best plan for you to achieve the results you want.
"What is in dermal fillers?"
Hyaluronic Acid is a biocompatible, biodegradable material, which replaces the naturally existing substance in your skin. It repairs damaged skin and absorbs water to create a plumping effect.
"What happens at a dermal filler consultation?"
During the consultation, our practitioners will discuss the results you intend to achieve from the treatment and advise you appropriately.
You will never be rushed and our highly skilled practitioners will discuss aspects of your skin you are unhappy with, your desired results, costs, and timings.
Our aim is for you to leave your consultation confident, fully informed, and looking forward to the treatment.
"Where on my body can I have dermal fillers?"
Popular areas to add volume and fullness include lips, cheeks, and bridge of the nose. For smoothing and plumping lines and wrinkles, popular areas include the forehead, eyes, mouth, chin, neck, and hands.
"What is a vial and how many treatments do I need?"
A vial is a measurement of the anti-wrinkle injectable liquid that is administered during treatments.
Typically lips require 1-2 vials, cheeks require 2 vials, and treatment of nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) requires 1-2 vials and marionette lines require 1 vial.
"How long do dermal fillers last?"
Results begin to show immediately after treatment, however; it will take up to 48 hours to see the full effect. The results will typically last for up to 12 months but lip fillers tend to last for six months.
"Are dermal filler injections painful?"
Most patients only experience mild discomfort. As the needles used for dermal fillers are very fine, the amount of pain experienced by patients is minimal and the procedure does not require anesthesia.
However, it should be noted that many of the dermal fillers today contain Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimise discomfort.
In addition, topical numbing creams can be used to further minimise discomfort when injecting in sensitive areas.
"What if I don’t like the results, are dermal fillers reversible?"
Fortunately, there is an option of completely reversing the results. However, a great amount of time is spent during your consultation to discuss your expectations so there should not be any surprises or shock results.
"Are dermal fillers safe?"
Yes, when administered correctly by a medical professional. Dermal fillers are approved by the FDA and have an excellent safety record.
At Ahmeys clinic, safety is our number one priority and we have rigorous training and auditing to ensure treatments are administered under strict medical protocols.
