I trained in the use of dermal fillers 15 years ago in London. Since then I have updated my techniques in Toronto and Paris. I have used a variety of fillers over the years, and the fillers I trust and use now are Juvéderm® in the main face, Teosyal® for tear trough and Sculptra for hollowed cheeks. I have done hundreds of treatments over the years, and am keen to provide a 'less is more philosophy' in my work. Most of my clients want to have a natural, pretty look. They want to look the best version of themselves rather than a plastic mannequin. I am happy to stage a treatment so that any changes develop gradually and are indiscernible.
Dermal Filler treatment involves injecting a medically developed gel under the skin to enhance facial features and plump and fill lines.
Fillers are used to treat a range of skin concerns including:
Juvéderm®, Teosyal® Redensity 11 and Sculptra are the three fillers offered at Medical Cosmetic Service.
Juvéderm® is made from biocompatible, biodegradable materials and contains hyaluronic acid, which already occurs in your skin. There are different sized particles in Juvéderm® and this will dictate which type is advised for your area of concern.
Teosyal® Redensity 11 is specifically indicated hyaluronic acid for tear trough injections and is the only product I trust in this area.
Sculptra is composed of Poly-L-Lactic acid, a substance which is used in dissolvable stitches. Sculptra is used to improve the appearance of hollowed cheeks, and the result will progressively develop over months. Juvéderm® and Teosyal® will give an immediate result, whilst Sculptra’s works gradually over time.
Various techniques can be used with Dermal Fillers, including the 8 point lift, where small amounts of filler are placed strategically in the face to lift the tissues. You don’t have to have the full treatment done. Just a few points can make an elegant difference. The face can be volumised and the microcannula technique is best used for this to aid comfort and minimise bruising. Tear trough injections are always done with a microcannula, to create a smooth contour in this area and reduce the problem of bruising. Sculptra comes as a powder which is hydrated. This liquid is injected into hollow / lined cheeks, preferably by microcannula as the area needs to be overfilled initially and I want to minimise bruising. If a filler is to be injected multiple times a local anaesthetic cream will be applied to give you a more comfortable experience.
Treatments are available at my clinics at Bute House, Bridge Road, Frampton n Severn, Gloucestershire GL2 7HA and Sevenfields Dental Health Clinic, Woodcutters Mews, Groundwell West, Swindon, Wiltshire, SN25 4AU.

No. The idea is to enhance your features, and allow you to be the best version of yourself, rather than a completely different one. Most people want a subtle, natural appearance which gives them confidence and a look of general well-being.
Popular areas are cheeks, lips, lip lines, jawline, nose to mouth lines, forehead, neck, décolletage and chin.
Results vary from person to person but usually results last up to 12 months.
A local anaesthetic will be offered, in the form of a cream, for the injection method, and by injection for the microcannula technique. There may be a slight stinging sensation, but the treatment is very well tolerated. The microcannula technique is an excellent technique for volumisation as it minimises the risk of bruising.
Yes, in the hands of a medically qualified professional. I keep up to date with safety protocols and guidelines. As a doctor, I am able to administer an injectable antidote if required, and I can advise on any side effects that may occur, as a consequence. Such aside effects are rare.
