As the years pass, tell-tale signs of ageing begin to show on our faces in the form of fine lines and wrinkles. This is due to a natural decrease of collagen and elasticity in the skin, greatly reducing its firmness and definition of facial contours.
Dermal fillers are a product made from natural ingredients which is injected directly into the skin with a fine needle to boost its volume, define contours, smooth out wrinkles, reduce scars and give an overall look of rejuvenation. At Juvea, the dermal fillers used are based on hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced in the body which controls the balance of nutrients and moisture in the skin. Although hyaluronic acid-based fillers do not last as long as permanent ones, Juvea believe that dissolvable products such as Restylane, Teosyal and Juvederm enable reliable, safe and reproducible results that our patients like, with no risk of a ‘trout pout’ appearance. The revitalising effects of one of our dermal filler treatments will often last from 6 to 9 months so they are long-lasting nonetheless.
Already a firm favourite amongst women, this is a treatment which is fast gaining popularity with men also, it may be that frown lines are giving you a stressed and angry look making you look older than your years. In our experience, our male clients want to look rejuvenated but not over-enhanced.
One of the benefits of dermal fillers is that they are versatile and can be used to enhance different areas of the face. Lips can be given shape and volume, cheeks and chin areas can be injected to restore lost definition and reshape the face for a younger looking appearance, and noses can be augmented for a ‘non-surgical nose job’ treatment.
More popularly, fillers are used to effectively smooth out or ‘fill-in’ wrinkles and creases in ageing skin- the most common areas being the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines), the marionette lines which run from the mouth to the chin, and the glabella area between the eyebrows.

Dermal Fillers help to smooth and fill lines and static deep wrinkles, volumise and define lips and augment the chin, nose, cheeks and chin. With a treatment you’ll look more youthful and fresh faced for around a year. There are different ranges to work at different levels in the skin, from correcting sun damage, to a non-surgical mid face-lift.
Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid (HA): a substance that binds water, hydrates the skin and promotes all- important softness and fullness. However, as we age, our HA gradually becomes less efficient which leads to the loss of natural elasticity and youthful volume. The type of dermal fillers we use at Juvea Aesthetics is made from Stabilised Non-Animal Hyaluronic Acid gel (NASHA). When injected into the skin it gives nature a helping hand. Dermal fillers boost the skin’s hydration system, stimulates the production of collegen, restores youthful volume by supporting the skin’s structure to delay the signs of ageing and encourage the production of healthy, glowing skin.
The beauty of the type of dermal fillers used at Juvea Aesthetics ( Restylane, Juviderm and Teosyal) is that their safety and efficacy is clinically proven and this is what sets them apart from other injectable treatments.
The dermal filler is injected in tiny quantities using a fine needle. It can be used to soften lines, add fullness and boost condition and tone. The procedure takes about 20-30 minutes. The treatment benefits can be seen instantly and do not affect facial expression.
The treatment will be administered by a specialist clinician after a thorough consultation to determine which type of filler is best to suit your individual needs. They will also go through any contra-indications for dermal fillers which include pregnancy, breast-feeding, auto-immune disease and herpes simplex without prophylaxis amongst others. Overall, it is a relatively painless procedure (as anaesthetic cream can be applied beforehand), safe and will usually only take around half an hour. Although minor reactions to the injections may occur such as mild bruising, redness and swelling; this will subside in a couple of days. After the initial swelling has gone down, the effects can be seen straight away- yet another benefit!
You may experience some mild discomfort when having a dermal filler injection but a topical anaesthetic can be applied beforehand to numb the area for a more comfortable treatment. The lip area is very sensitive so we usually recommend applying a numbing cream before your lip enhancement treatment. Your practitioner will apply this in the clinic prior to treatment.
Depending on the area, the actual treatment will only take around 15-30 minutes, though you will have a full consultation beforehand with your doctor.
The results of dermal fillers last from around six to nine months after which time they will break down naturally and be safely absorbed by the body. Your Juvea practitioner will advise you on when is best to book your next treatment, but you may also prefer to come in for a top-up before that.
The great thing about dermal filler injections is that you will be able to see the results immediately, though it can take up to 48 hours to see the full effect. The results will last up to about six months.
Downtime is not required following a dermal fillers treatment, you can resume normal activities straight away though it is worth bearing in mind you may have minor swelling so best to avoid a treatment the day before a special occasion.
One of the first things that you might notice as you age is the deepening of the lines between the nose to mouth, also known as the Nasolabial folds. These become a lot more prominent in both men and women over time as the collagen and fat in the skin decreases- and can really affect a person’s self-confidence. The good news is that face fillers are effective in reducing the appearance of these lines.
With little down time needed to recover, you will be able to see visible results immediately after the procedure. Dermal fillers to the nasolabial folds are very effective- even deep lines can be significantly reduced and the effects can last anywhere from between 6-9 months, or even a year. After this time, to maintain your new youthful appearance you may benefit from coming in for a top up treatment. When returning, it may also be worth considering replacing lost volume in the cheek area to complement the treatment- your Juvea practitioner will be able to advise you on this.
Your mouth is one of the first things that someone will notice about you- think about it, we use our mouths to express ourselves constantly, whether it be through talking, smiling and even kissing! Lips come in all shapes and sizes and it may be that you feel as though yours are too thin, uneven or that over time they have lost volume and developed fine lines around the border. If you’re a smoker, unfortunately for you this may be even more noticeable. A plumper pout can not only look sensuous, attractive and feminine, but also rebalances your facial features and restore that youthful look to give you back your confidence in your appearance.
Our dermal lip fillers London treatment is one of the most effective and safest ways for you to achieve the lips you desire, through non-surgical lip enhancement with dermal filler injections.
First of all you will have a free initial consultation with an experienced clinician to discuss your desired look and what we can do to achieve it. We can determine whether you need dermal lip filler injections to the vermillion border (lip margin) to reshape the lips, or injections to the body of the lips to boost the volume. There are many other techniques we can use to enhance a pout, fill in fine lines and even help to reverse a downward smile.
High, prominent cheekbones have always been associated with beauty and youth, but unfortunately as we age our skin begins to lose its elasticity and plumpness leaving us with lost volume in the cheek area- and a more pronounced hollow look. This is likely to cause an overall ageing effect to a person’s appearance, and make them look gaunt and tired. Help is at hand here at Juvea Aesthetics London, where our expert practitioners are trained to carry out a non-surgical, non-invasive cheek augmentation procedure using dermal fillers to reshape and contour the cheek area.
This cheek filler treatment may be suitable for anyone desiring an improvement in the size and shape of their cheeks, as well as those who feel their face is too, facial features which need balancing or an angular face that needs softening. The fillers are injected with very fine needles at varying depths to plump out (or ‘fill’) the cheek area and restore natural volume.
Other mid-to-upper face treatments that work well in conjunction with cheek augmentation are Botox for wrinkle reduction, and perhaps chemical peels to tighten and rejuvenate the skin.
Does your facial expression make you appear sad or angry even when you’re not? It may be that due to the natural signs of ageing, the lines from the corners of your mouth have begun to extend down towards the chin and jaw line. The muscles in this area weaken as we get older and skin tissue loses its plumpness, causing any volume to move from the mid-face downwards. These lines are referred to as ‘Marionette Lines’, named after the classic marionette puppets as they look like the mouth pieces of a ventriloquist’s doll, and unfortunately are likely to become all the more prominent over the course of time if they are left untreated. A person’s gaze will naturally be drawn to this lower part of your face corners of your mouth as you talk or communicate to them, so it’s no surprise that emphasised marionette lines can make you feel very self-conscious. The good news is that you can get that self-confidence back by treating these lines effectively with the use of dermal fillers at Juvea London.
Many of us may have that one facial feature we wish was a little bit different and given that our face is the first thing a stranger will notice about us, it can make a person feel very self-conscious. It may be that you feel as though your chin is small, weak or looks under-developed and you would prefer a more pronounced look. Undertaking cosmetic surgery is a serious decision that may involve a chin implant, or bone, tissue or fat grafting and can pose risks such as the implant moving or infection.
But did you know that non-surgical dermal fillers can be used to improve the definition and shape of features such as the chin?
You will notice an improvement in the shape and projection of the chin immediately; and after the initial swelling has reduced within a week you should see the final results. Depending on the type and amount of filler used, the results of this particular treatment can last anywhere from 6 months to one year, although to maintain the look we advised our clients to return for a top-up every year.
Tired-looking eyes and dark circles that just won’t fade? The skin around the eye area is very fragile, meaning that signs of fatigue or ageing show easily. Under eye circles appear first at the corner of the eye and then underneath giving a sad, tired appearance. Whether due to tiredness, genetics, diet or an unhealthy lifestyle, dark or prominent eye circles can really affect a person’s self-confidence.
At Juvea Aesthetics London we offer Teosyal Redensity II, the first dermal filler formulated especially to treat the tear trough area under the eyes. If you find it difficult to reduce black circles, fine lines and crêpey under eye skin, Teosyal Redensity II is here to help. The great thing about the Redensity II dermal filler is that it continues to work long after the injection treatment takes place by infusing the area with amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins giving maximum effectiveness and long-term results.
The tear trough treatment at Juvea involves around 3 or 4 injections under each eye after the area has had a topical anaesthetic cream applied to minimise any discomfort. You will notice the results straight away, and one treatment can last between 9-12 months.
Sagging skin, a loss of volume, and fine lines can be easily improved by a few treatments of facial mesotherapy at our clinic in, Harley Street London. Mesotherapy has the power to give the skin a refreshed and brighter look, make your skin glow and most importantly restore its hydration. This treatment consists of multiple superficial injections over the face, chest and hands.
It is scientifically proven that with ageing, skin starts to dehydrate becoming thinner and dry. Hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs and is found in our body, if injected can help in fighting ageing damages. The Restylane Vital, and Teosyal lines, are the most well known and best working products used for facial mesotherapy in London. This kind of treatment could be done both to young patients, who just need to boost their skin before an important occasion like a wedding, and to older patients to get back their healthy skin look.
In younger patients, usually one treatment is enough at least three weeks prior to the occasion, while in older patients we advise at least one treatment every three weeks for three times
