As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural hyaluronic acid diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin once was youthful. Face fillers, otherwise known as dermal fillers, are small injections of gel, made up of hyaluronic acid, that can fill in those lines wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. With the increasing desire for people to achieve a more youthful appearance and the increased demand for nonsurgical treatments, we have found that dermal fillers are consistent, have predictable and immediate results, feel natural under the skin, have minimal to no downtime and create a natural-looking result.

At Empire Clinic, we believe that the fundamental basis for a successful aesthetic procedure is an in-depth consultation with a skilled qualified practitioner to assess your needs and develop a bespoke personal treatment plan so that you achieve outstanding natural looking results.
Dermal fillers are used for facial aesthetic treatments and are injected into the skin. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and to revitalise the skin. They are based on Hyaluronic acid which is a substance that naturally exists in your body. It binds water and it’s important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin.
Dermal fillers consist of a soft injectable gel consisting of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid that closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. It provides an easy, natural looking way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth the skin and give a more youthful appearance. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and results are long-lasting but not permanent.
Here is some essential information about the treatment and what to expect before, during and after your visit vith us.
At Empire Clinic, nothing is more important to us than your health, safety and wellbeing. During your initial consultation, we discuss in depth what your wants and needs are and make a plan on how we can achieve that for you. We also talk through your medical history to make sure there aren't any potential contraindications. If you have any qualms or questions of your own, this appointment provides a great opportunity to ask away.
Just before the actual treatment, the area will be cleaned, then disinfected. We may use a surgical pen to mark your skin so the filler can be injected with precision. You may be given a topical anaesthetic to numb the area prior to injection. Many filler products also contain lidocaine, a mild anaesthetic, which is intended to help minimize discomfort during and after your treatment. The aesthetic nurse will then inject a precise amount of filler strategically beneath the skin.
Depending on the product and the areas treated, you should be able to notice results immediately after receiving filler injections. Some patients experience mild bruising and swelling, but these are temporary and should subside over the days following treatment. Aftercare instructions and an products will be provided to you. You will be able to go back to your normal activities right after treatment, but your cosmetic nurse may ask you to not drink alcohol, take blood thinning meds and abstain from strenuous activities for a few days.
This depends on the area that is treated. Dermal Fillers injected into the lips will usually last between 6-9 months, nose to mouth lines would be expected to last 12-15 months and cheeks up to 18 months. The Dermal Filler is gradually absorbed by the body. Further treatments are usually required to maintain the effect, otherwise wrinkles and lines will return to their previous appearance but will be no worse than before treatment.
Depending on the areas to be treated with the Dermal Fillers or the amount of product required, the treatment session usually takes around 30-40 minutes.
After your treatment you can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately. There may be some redness and swelling immediately afterwards but makeup can be applied. For 2 weeks after the treatment you are advised to avoid extreme heat (sun bed or sunbathing) or intense cold.
The most common areas treated with Dermal Fillers are for the lines extending from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds), lines extending from the lips (smokers lines), lines on the cheeks, and lines around the mouth (marionette lines). Dermal Fillers are also used for augmentation of the lips, cheeks and jowls.
Dermal fillers are very safe. They have been widely used for many years with over 10 million treatments carried out worldwide. They are a temporary Dermal Filler, and are therefore a far safer treatment than Permanent Fillers.
Do not take any aspirin, ibuprofen or blood thinners for 1 week prior to filler. Avoid fish oil, Vitamin E, and gingko biloba for 1 week prior to filler. Eat lots of leafy greens the week before to boost your levels of Vitamin K. Apply Arnica and vitamin K Cream to areas to be treated for several days before injection.
Cost depends on the type and amount of dermal filler required. During the consultation we will formulate a treatment plan for you and advise the exact cost of your treatments. Our prices are competitive and your treatments will be carried out by a qualified injector practitioner. We believe our patients deserve the utmost safety in our care and we are committed to offering reliable, safe and effective results. Please refer to our price list.
Many people find their procedure more comfortable than expected. We apply a numbing cream to the area prior to injecting and most dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. You should merely feel a light sting on your skin during the injection procedure.
The obvious immediate side effect is of slight bleeding after the needle has been inserted into the skin. Other risks include mild bruising, redness and swelling that may also occur around the site of injection. These signs may take 2 – 3 days to vanish completely, especially around the lips where there is little flesh and the skin is tender. Rarely, allergic type reactions can occur after treatment with some filler. These include prolonged redness, swelling, itching and or hardness and bumps in the skin. Such signs may appear at some or all of the points of injection. Sometimes, they can last for several months or longer, but this is extremely unusual. If you have a history of cold sores in the treated area, filler injections may cause them to break out again. In these cases, your practitioner may recommend that you take an anti-viral medicine to help reduce the likelihood of an outbreak of cold sores. If you are concerned about side effects of Dermal Fillers, you can discuss this in more detail at your private consultation.
I had microblading treatment and from the initial consultation to the actual treatment Carmen explained everything to me step by step. She was extremely professional but her warm manner was also very reassuring. I was thrilled by the results beyond my expectations .I would definitely recommend. I also had a removal of a small growth on my face . I was very apprehensive but Carmen explained the procedure at the initial consultation in great detail and on the day was very reassuring going over the process again. Very happy . Carmen made the experience relaxing and reassuring .
I had another fantastic visit to Empire on Thursday. This time I had a combination of microdermabrasion and Hydrodermabrasion to clear my skin. Last time I had a derma-pen facial. I’ve been going to Empire for around two years and my skin has improved so much. Will and Carmen are lovely and the whole experience is very professional and safe. I can’t recommend enough.
Had microblading and lip fillers and can't fault them. Carmen explains everything thing she's doing to while she goes along with the treatment and feel really relaxed. Will see them again.
This is the second time ive had Carmen do my microblading and i couldn't he happier. Professional and friendly. An amazing job. Thank you
Had a luxury facial with Samantha. Cannot recommend enough she was so good. Skin feels really good and cleansed. Samantha has Lots of knowledge and advice on how to look after your skin. Would definitely book again.
I've enjoyed several luxury facials with Desiree and Would highly recommend her ability to create a Calming and relaxing environment and a wonderful Facial
Excellent and professional service. Indepth consultation resulted in desired results achieved.
Carmen and Will are amazing, very professional and approachable, I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my treatments now, I’ve had multiple treatments and each has surpassed my expectations every time.
I had my lips done on Tuesday and it was my first time so I was very nervous. Carmen was amazing as she talked me through how it would be done etc. I loved the fact I didn’t just need to sign a form and get started as she went through all the things that could go wrong face to face which I preferred. Always asked if I was okay and didn’t rush the procedure. Very nice women and would recommend. Also in love with my new lips
Had a PDO thread lift yesterday, Carmen was very calming and professional and friendly, and made the whole experience much easier and relaxing. Thank you!
Hydrodermabrasian facial recommended. Samantha was very nice and made me feel at ease. She talked me through the treatment before and during the procedure as well as providing details of aftercare. My skin looked brighter, more hydrated and felt softer after the treatment. The salon is immaculate. The treatment felt like an all round luxurious experience from start to finish.

I had my micro bladed eyebrow colour boost yesterday by Carmen, as usual she was very chatty, professional and put me entirely at ease. I trust her completey and wouldn't go anywhere else to have this done. The salon has been revamped and is spotlessly clean and adherent to covid regulations and makes you feel very safe. Highly recommended.
Carmen is lovely and puts you at ease during procedures and is very knowledgable and very skilled at what she does, thanks very much!
