Dermal fillers can be used for a wide range of treatments from enhancing features to hiding signs of aging and one of the ways in which we use dermal fillers at our Knightsbridge based clinic is to erase wrinkles on foreheads.
People often associate anti-wrinkle injections with Botulinum toxin, which paralyses the nerve and therefore decreases movement, but if the wrinkle is still visible when you aren’t frowning, dermal fillers may be a more suitable solution. We use high quality, synthetically created hyaluronic acid in our dermal fillers as this is naturally found in the body and hydrates and plumps the skin. We first apply a numbing agent to minimise discomfort before injecting small amounts of the sterile gel and massaging into place.
As well as plumping out frown lines on the forehead, dermal fillers can also be used to minimise the appearance of indented scars by filling them out to the level of the rest of the skin.
Dermal fillers for frown lines are not permanent but last several months, after which the solution passes harmlessly through your system as it is broken down. As well as looking natural, the procedure doesn’t require any surgical equipment or procedures, you do not need any recovery time and you will still be able to show expressions as usual.
As with all of our treatments, you will have a free consultation and we will explain proper aftercare with you. To find out more about our dermal filler treatments or to book your free consultation, contact us today and speak to a member of our team.
We can disguise the signs of aging on our skin and our hair, but our hands can give our age away as they lose the layer of fat on their backs and production of collagen slows down, leaving the tendons and veins showing though the skin. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we use Radiesse fillers to make the skin appear plumper and more lifted as one of our anti-aging treatments.
Radiesse is one of the best dermal fillers available and consists of tiny beads of calcium hydroxylapatite in a sterile gel which forms a cushion under the skin. It is injected as a ball into the backs of your hands and massaged to shape it. This pads out the skin slightly so it is lifted away from the tendons and veins and the skin’s volume is restored. You may notice some swelling for a couple of days and we may recommend a top-up treatment after 2 to 4 weeks from your initial session to obtain your desired results. The procedure is non-invasive, does not require general anaesthetic and after the procedure you are free to go about your day as there is no recovery time required.
The results last around 12 months so are long lasting but not permanent so you can have the treatment repeated if you are happy with the results. Prior to your treatment you will have a free consultation where we will discuss your desired results and plan a bespoke treatment plan for you.

Your eyes can be the biggest indicator of your age and, as the skin surrounding the eyes is the thinnest of the entire body, it is more susceptible to premature aging. The tear through, directly underneath your eyes, can start to look hollow and sunken and can develop dark circles as the skin ages and loses its elasticity. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we can improve the appearance of the under eye area with the use of Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the body and gives skin smoothness and plumpness by retaining water. We use a synthetically created Hyaluronic acid that is free from any animal or human products, is biocompatible and biodegradable and acts in the exact same way as the Hyaluronic acid found in the skin. This is injected into the under eye area in small amounts and then massaged into place.
As well as plumping out fine lines and wrinkles and making the tear trough of the eye look less sunken, our dermal fillers can also reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles as it creates a small cushion between the uppermost layers of the skin and the veins and thus they are less visible.
Our dermal filler treatments are non-invasive and do not require general anaesthetic or down time for recovery but we can use a numbing cream at the start of the treatment to minimise discomfort and recommend that you do not touch the treated area afterwards and avoid strenuous exercise for the following 24 hours. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a great way of subtly rejuvenating the eye area without resorting to drastic surgery. If you would like to make your eyes look fresh and youthful, contact us today and book your free consultation.
