There are over 200 filler products available in Europe, however, most cosmetic dermatologists will use a small number of those available. We would generally recommend keeping an open mind and discussing to best product for your individual case when you see Dr Murdoch for a consultation. Over the years we have used a number of different types of filler but now prefer to stick to those which we believe give the most reliable improvement with the lowest risk of side effects.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers are the most popular and are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a natural component of skin. These products have proven themselves to be very safe over many years. Whilst there are a large number of HA fillers on the market we prefer to use just a few. The most popular HA filler in our clinic is the Juvederm Ultra range and for deeper injections Voluma. Dr Murdoch will also use one of the Restylane product range if clients have been happy with this in the past and prefer to stay with the same product. The effects of HA fillers will last up to 12-15 months for most injection areas. Injections into the lips generally last around 6-9 months.

Sculptra is a product made of poly-L-lactic acid crystal. It is technically not a filler as the water used to inject it is absorbed by the body within a few days its effects rely on the crystals ability to stimulate the underside of the skin to thicken. A series of 3-5 treatment sessions are usually carried out at around 6 week intervals. If a satisfactory thickening of the skin is produced the effects may last up to 2 years.

Permanent Fillers are products which do not degrade in the skin. At Shropshire Skin Clinic we do not use any permanent filler products as we believe the risks to be higher and there is a risk that any adverse effects will be permanent. Additionally the amount of a filler product required and its positioning may well change as the face ages over the year

Fillers are products which are injected into the skin or under the skin to restore volume lost from the face as we age and to soften the appearance of deep wrinkles, coarse lines and folds. Fillers may also be used to plump up the volume of lips.
