Dermal Fillers

At our award winning Laser and Skin Clinics we use only the safest and most advanced FDA approved dermal filler products. There are currently several types of Dermal Fillers available on the market. The most popular types of dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers (Belotero) calcium hydroxylapatite fillers (Radiesse) and polylactic acid fillers (Sculptra), all of which are available at The Laser and Skin Clinic.

Our anti-ageing injection treatments are carried out by highly experienced nurses and doctors who provide a range of Dermal Fillers to suit your individual requirements.

As the skin ages the major elements of the dermis are gradually lost. These elements include elastin, hyaluronic acid and collagen. Collagen is the major protein which supports the skin, while hyaluronic acid assists in adding volume and shape to the skin and these materials prevent the skin from becoming saggy. However, as they gradually decrease in the body the skin ultimately becomes thinner and lined with deep wrinkles. Dermal Fillers provide a perfect solution to this problem by restoring such lost volume.

What are Dermal Fillers?

The term “dermal filler” encompasses a wide range of products, and is an expression which describes a treatment that adds volume and structure to the face. Dermal Fillers are fast and effective treatments, to soften lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smooth, improved and more youthful appearance.

How do Dermal Fillers work?

Dermal Fillers involve an injection of a gel-like product (depending on the type of filler) to physically fill and plump out the line or area of concern. The product acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. Ultimately the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results.

What price is the treatment?

Prices will depend on the amount of product and type of filler used. Prices start from €300.

  • Will break down naturally – non permanent

We believe that only medically trained clinicians should perform injectable treatments. The result of treatment is only as good as the practitioner. Anna Gunning, Aesthetic Nurse and Owner of The Laser and Skin Clinic, has practiced in the medical field for over twenty-five years, and has been an aesthetic nurse for the last twelve years. Having treated thousands of clients, Anna has ample experience and an extensive skill set in advanced dermal filler techniques.

Numbing cream may be applied prior to treatment however advances in dermal filler products means that some products now contain Lidocaine to help numb the treated area simultaneously during treatment proven to aid client comfort.

Treatment times vary ranging from 30-45 minutes.

With any injectable treatment, there can be some slight bruising or swelling that accompanies it. This should not persist much longer than a few days and can easily be concealed with makeup.

While there are permanent fillers available on the market, we do not use them at The Laser and Skin Clinic. We promote the use of temporary (resorbable) fillers, as clients should have the ultimate say on what they would like from their treatment. If permanent fillers are used, there runs the risk of the client not liking the result achieved and not being able to reverse the effects of treatment.

Temporary fillers are considered a very safe form of filler as the product will be absorbed by the body during a gradual process in which any potential side-effects are not last longing. Temporary fillers are composed of various man-made, synthetic materials which include hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite.

Wouldn’t you agree?

The most popular types of dermal filler are hyaluronic acid fillers, calcium hydroxylapatite fillers and polylactic acid fillers of three which are available at The Laser and Skin Clinic with Belotero, Radiesse and Sculptra.

Belotero (Hyaluronic Acid Fillers)

Hyaluronic acid fillers also referred to as HA dermal fillers are widely used in the Ireland and the UK due to their high levels of safety and reliability. It is a natural substance which can be found in every living organism but diminishes as we age. As a result, it is biocompatible and side-effects are very rare. Hyaluronic acid fillers come in varying levels of thickness and so they are a flexible option to improve different areas of the face. Belotero dermal filler products work to iron out wrinkled, crepey skin and give a much fuller look. Due to the high levels of hyaluronic acid, they also attract and retain water, improving the skin’s appearance and texture. See Belotero for more information.

Radiesse (Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers)

Calcium hydroxylapatite has maintained a safe standard of treatment in the cosmetic industry for many years and is the main element of Radiesse dermal filler. This is a temporary but longer-lasting type of dermal filler which works wonders for facial contouring. It is used mainly for volumising midface, jawline contouring, cheek enhancements or as a rejuvenating treatment for the face as it stimulates collagen while present in the skin. See Radiesse for more information.

Sculptra (Poly-l-lactic acid fillers)

Collagen stimulators are injectable and encourage the body’s own collagen to form and provide beneficial effects. The product is composed from poly-l-lactic acid and which adds volume and improves skin texture. Such products include Sculptra and can improve skin thickness and last up to two years, with the results gradually improving over several months for a subtle improvement.
