- Fillers are made of a natural substance found in the skin meaning there is a decreased risk associated
- It is a constantly-proven, safe procedure
- Various fillers achieve different results
- An efficient application process

What are the benefits of dermal filler treatments?

Dermal fillers use a natural substance to improve your look which offers the following benefits:
- Improved volume and enhance facial structure
- A more desirable overall facial shape

- Deliver natural-looking results

Appropriate for both men and women, the fillers allow us to create different shapes and sizes, so our team will be able to advise you on the best look for your facial structure.
What are the various filler options?
The options for dermal fillers are varied to produce a range of results. The most common fillers are made from a clear gel, with options that provide varying thickness, viscosity, and longevity. Finer fillers, for example, will offer a shorter lasting time frame but are a good option for fine skin and extreme smoothness.
The blending of varying fillers with a local anaesthetic is also an option. This will reduce the already mild amount of pain that some patients may experience during application. The anaesthetic numbs the skin to make the procedure a more comfortable experience.
The team at Lumiere will determine which filler is best for your needs, while also ensuring this is the right procedure for your goals. We have a significant range of skincare solutions that offer different options to improve your look.

Frequently Asked Questions
Please see below a list of our FAQs that can provide you with additional information.
Are dermal fillers safe?
The fillers we use at Lumiere’s clinic are made from a naturally derived substance (hyaluronic acid), are all FDA-approved and administered by experienced professionals, so are considered safe.
Do Dermal Fillers Hurt?
As the process involves a small injection, some pain may be experienced, however, this can be lessened for those who have a low pain threshold with the help of a local anaesthetic cream. The most pain you will feel is a slight sting as the dermal filler is injected.
Are there any risks involved with the fillers?
As dermal fillers use a natural substance that already exists in your body, the risk of allergic reaction is very low. As all injectable cosmetic treatments involve a certain level of risk, our team will explain everything you need to know. All of our patients are made to feel completely comfortable before any procedure is given the green light.
Which fillers last the longest?
Each filler is broken down by the face at a different rate which in turn affects their lifespan. This, along with some other factors, will determine how long your dermal fillers last. Lifestyle elements and the area of injection will decide the effectiveness and length. However the longest can last up to 2 years.
Can anyone inject dermal fillers?
In the hands of an inexperienced operator, harmful and unwanted side effects can occur during the administration of dermal fillers. For this reason, injections must be administered by qualified, experienced providers and it is also why they are excluded from some lower-level beauty therapy services and are regulated as a medical procedure.
What happens after my dermal fillers wear off?
Many patients are worried that after their dermal fillers wear off, the corrected wrinkles and volume loss may return and even be worse. The simple fact, however, is that wrinkles do not become worse after having dermal fillers. The fillers restore volume in areas of the skin where it has been lost with some even stimulating collagen production to restore and rejuvenate the skin.
How do dermal fillers differ from anti wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to tackle wrinkles and other signs of ageing. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are used to increase facial volume and accentuate facial contours by filling out certain areas of the face.
Is it possible to receive permanent fillers?
Some fillers can last for up to 2 years but no fillers are considered permanent.
From what age are dermal filler injections recommended?
If you’re looking to use dermal fillers to combat the signs of ageing, then your mid-20s is often a good time to start as your body starts to produce less collagen around this time.
Can I pair dermal fillers with other treatments?
Fillers are often paired with other cosmetic treatments like anti-wrinkle injections. However, you’ll have to avoid facials, waxing peels and any laser treatments for two weeks after your procedure. We’ll discuss all of the options at your consultation.
