Injectable facial fillers (dermal fillers) are a non-surgical treatment that uses manufactured HA filler to restore elasticity and facial volume through a relatively quick and simple injection. A dermal filler adds volume that reduces deep lines and dynamic wrinkles, thus restoring youthful and aesthetically-balanced facial contours.
As easy as it sounds, choosing the right anti-wrinkle dermal filler and injecting just the right amount in the right places is paramount to achieving long-lasting results. When injecting dermal fillers into the face, experience and judgement are key to achieving a natural look.
For award-winning dermal fillers, Glasgow is the place to be. Dr Darren McKeown’s Aesthetic Medicine Institute in Glasgow city centre is well known for its dermal filler injections.

OUR FACIAL FILLERS
Injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) is a safe and effective temporary dermal filler consisting of sugar molecules that are found naturally in the skin and other connective tissues in the body. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-retaining compound that keeps your tissues lubricated.
Dermal fillers mimic the skin’s natural HA by adding volume to the skin, naturally.
Along with its effective ability to reduce lines and deep wrinkles, the benefits of HA over previous generations of collagen dermal fillers include its ability to provide long-lasting results and a much lower risk of allergic reaction. However, one of the biggest advantages of our anti-wrinkle hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is that they can be quickly dissolved.
When dealing with cosmetic treatments for the face, whether lip fillers or a dermal filler for fine lines, it is always essential to think of “what happens if things go wrong”, and it is essential to have a get-out-of-jail card. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers give you that peace of mind.
Modern preparations of hyaluronic acid fillers and new cross-linking technologies mean anti-wrinkle dermal fillers can last anywhere up to 2 years when injected correctly into the face.
What to expect with Dermal Filler Treatments
There may be some discomfort when you get dermal fillers because of the injections, but we ensure your comfort during the procedure by offering two options for minimising pain: numbing cream that numbs the surface of the skin or a local anaesthetic that numbs the entire mouth area.
There is still some discomfort with the cream because it only has a partial numbing effect, but most people handle this well. Injecting a local anaesthetic into the mouth makes the entire mouth area numb, making the treatment painless. The only downside of using anaesthesia when getting anti-wrinkle dermal fillers is that the numbness takes a few hours to wear off.
The option you choose will depend on your pain threshold and personal preferences.
Permanent vs Temporary
Most dermal fillers are temporary and can last anywhere from 3–4 months up to around 2–3 years. Therefore, dermal filler treatments must be repeated to maintain the results and keep those wrinkles and lines at bay. As a result, there has been a desire to develop long-lasting or permanent fillers.
Although permanent fillers may seem attractive, there is real potential for long-term problems with them. Complications with dermal fillers are not common, and with most of the fillers we use, the filler can be dissolved if issues arise.
With a permanent dermal filler, this is not an option. If the filler needs to be removed, it must be done surgically. Even if problems do not arise, your face will continue to age whilst the dermal filler remains the same. This will eventually look unnatural.
For these reasons, permanent dermal fillers are best avoided.
