Dermal fillers done right!

Skin plumping and other facial aesthetics treatments might seem a bit unusual for a dentist, but with an excellent mix of medical training and appreciation of aesthetics, you can really get the most out of your treatment with us using dermal fillers W1 at Harley Street Dental Clinic.


Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is the primary ingredient in almost all dermal fillers W1. Sometimes called an active ingredient (that would be a bit of a misnomer as it’s truly active at all) it’s an extremely passive tissue filling. It naturally occurs in almost all mammals and many other creatures, making up 20% of healthy human skin tissue. It’s very hydrophilic, which means it interacts with and is affected by water, and will actually suck up water from the air if crystals of hyaluronic acid are not properly stored. When fully hydrated it is pH neutral and a slightly viscous gel like fluid.

Injection techniques

The difference between good and bad treatment comes down to injection technique. There are a wide range of filler manufacturers, and assuming non-counterfeit goods (a problem among less established vendors) are being used they are all largely the same, some containing numbing agents or further hydrating compounds.

What makes the difference between a ‘botched’ treatment and hitting aesthetic goals is the skill of the practitioner who has to decide which injection techniques to use, where to place them and have the competency and steady hand for carrying out those injections. This is one of those moments when dental skills really come into a league of their own. Our dentists often have to predict the outcome of a set of treatments based on symptoms and not only come to the correct conclusion of the best way forward, but also have the techniques and talents required to carry them out. It transfers over very well to dermal fillers!

Maximising treatment impact

As a naturally occurring protein in the skin tissue, your body has all the mechanisms required to build up and break down dermal fillers W1. There is a natural reduction in the overall quantity of hyaluronic acid as we age. It’s what contributes to wrinkles, a general sagging along with the loss of elastin and its replacement with keratin. The hyaluronic acid added during treatment will eventually be reabsorbed by your body; this becomes apparent within 6 months and is likely to be entirely absorbed in 12 months.

Many of our patients attend top up sessions at that 6 month mark. They are cheaper than previous treatment, are quicker and are the best considered for maintenance. They can often be fitted into a lunch break and around a packed business schedule. After treatment you’ll still be able to operate a vehicle and will not require an escort.

If you would like to find out more information about how we can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, please feel free to contact the clinic. We are currently accepting new patients into the surgery and if you are curious about joining please feel free to fill out the online application, or call our reception team.

What are dermal fillers and do we provide them?

Aside from our usual dental treatments, we also offer dermal fillers W1, which can be a great help if you want to rejuvenate the look of your skin. At Harley Street Dental Clinic, our team takes pride in delivering this treatment to a very high standard for our patients, so you’re sure to be in great hands.


Why get them?

Dermal fillers W1 are a really good way to brighten up your face. If you’re feeling down about the look of your skin, then this can really help to soften and brighten it. Unfortunately, as you age, your skin does too and it can become loose, which is due to your face losing something called subcutaneous fat. When this happens, your facial muscles are working closer to the skin and that’s what causes more wrinkles and lines. Fillers can really help to improve this, and in turn, boost your confidence. As well as smoothing out wrinkles, fillers can also help to plump thin lips, improve the appearance of recessed scars and more.

How do they work?

Before we proceed with the treatment, we will first have a meeting with you. We do this so that we can have a chat and get to know you and what you want from the treatment. We will determine whether dermal fillers W1 will provide the right treatment for you, and if we agree, we can begin the procedure.

To start with, we will first provide you with a local anaesthetic. This will help to numb the area and minimise discomfort throughout. We will then inject the filler into the desired areas, which will only take us a few minutes. Once this is done, you will be able to see the difference immediately, which is very exciting for our patients! How long the filler lasts depends on your skin type, injection technique and the area that was treated, but generally it varies from between 6 to 12 months. If you want to maintain your new, smoother skin, you can arrange follow up appointments with us.

What are the benefits?

Smoother skin

The obvious, main benefit that comes from this treatment is seeing the results. It can really get you down when you look in the mirror and don’t like the look of your skin, and it’s been really nice for our patients knowing we provide a treatment that can help this. As you already know, we mainly deliver it to help smooth out any lines and wrinkles our patients have, and it’s proven to be very effective in doing so.


Another benefit that comes with this treatment is that there are no surgeries required. This is good if you are someone who gets nervous about having invasive surgeries. As mentioned above, it only takes a few minutes to inject the filler, so it’s a super quick and simple process.

Minimal pain

Something our patients have mentioned to us is about how little the procedure hurts. By using local anaesthetic beforehand, you will barely feel it when we inject the filler. If you’re someone who gets nervous coming to the practice for treatments, this is great to hear.

Dermal fillers; myths debunked

Do you want to refresh your appearance, but have had enough of spending money on face creams? Do you want a way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but don’t want the extensive procedures that surround surgery?


At Harley Street Dental Clinic, our dentist can offer our patients a range of non-surgical facial aesthetic procedures, including dermal fillers W1. These simple injections can plump your skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and can help to boost the appearance of your lips, while also helping your face to appear fuller and less gaunt.

But in researching dermal fillers W1, you may have read some worrying ‘facts’ that have put you off of the idea altogether. Here, our team discusses the most popular myths that surround fillers to help you separate the truth from untruths.

Myth 1- There will be a lot of bruising

If there is a lot of bruising after you have had dermal fillers W1, then there is a serious issue!

Post-injection, you may experience some minor bruising, swelling and discomfort, but this should be minimal and should not last for longer than a few days.

If the bruising is spreading, or if you feel discomfort that is worsening around the injection site or nearby tissues, please seek medical help immediately and contact our team.

Myth 2- The results will look fake

We have all seen photos of celebrities who have gone a bit too far with fillers, wrinkle treatments and chemical peels.

But, when you come to us at Harley Street, we will aim to provide you with results that look and feel subtle, enhancing your features rather than minimising them. Therefore, the results will look natural and will feel natural too.

Myth 3- The injections will hurt

Filler injections should not hurt, but if you have concerns about discomfort before you have the injections, we can apply a numbing agent to the area where they will be injected to help you feel more comfortable.

Myth 4- The fillers require too much maintenance

For the first 24-48 hours after they are injected, you will need to take care not to place too much stress on the injection site, as this can cause the fillers to move out of position.

But, once that time period is completed, the only real maintenance the fillers will need is for you to stay hydrated; this will help keep the skin moist and springy, aiding the fillers to have the longest lifespan possible.

Myth 5- All fillers are the same

No, they are not, and one of the key advantages that comes with attending our dental clinic to have them injected in, is that we will only source the hyaluronic acid from reputable, medical sources. Many spas and other places that offer fillers may look online for fillers, often trying to get the best deals and a better return on the procedure. But this can lead to poor quality fillers, which in turn, leads to less impressive results.

However, all good-quality fillers have similar chemical compounds and will not be bulked out with other filler material.

Dermal fillers by Harley Street

Standard dermal fillers W1 that we use in our clinic are hyaluronic acid based. This naturally occurring compound reduces with age, but let’s talk more about exactly how we use it.


Hyaluronic acid is an inert hydrophilic compound; when mixed with an appropriate quantity of water, it is hydrated into a thick gel. In its natural role, it fills and adds volume to our tissues. And makes up approximately 10% of our body tissue, but that varies with age, with older people having significantly less. There is a lot of hyaluronic acid in facial tissues, that is one of the contributing factors behind a sagging and a gaunt appearance as we age.

Thankfully, hyaluronic acid can easily be produced in bacteria and then grown in a sterile vat, (in much the same way that common beer is brewed) having a cheap and plentiful quantity for the use in cosmetic procedures.

Injection methods

Hyaluronic acid is administered via injection directly into the area where it is required. Very thin needles are used and it is well tolerated by most patients. Dermal fillers W1can be administered with numbing agents if you would prefer. Different injection techniques are used to get the most from the filler, depending on your aesthetic goals, but let’s go through some of the more generic ones.

Micro-papular technique

Filler is applied with many small injections just under the skin, 2 to 4 mm apart. The small droplets of filler are used to cover wide areas quickly, giving an even increase in volume. This is considered the most effective for rehydrating or rejuvenating areas using fillers, which are going to have an effect on the skin and immediately plump the area.

Sandwich method

The sandwich method involves injecting two portions of filler into different layers of skin. The skin between the two fillers stops the first from merging with the latter injection. It allows a great deal of height to be gained and can be used to give structure to parts of the face that have lost definition.

Threading injections

When filler is “threaded” a longer needle is placed under the skin parallel to the surface. Then, as the filler is deposited, the needle is withdrawn; this leaves a line of filler in the tissue where the needle once was.


A larger extension of the threading technique, where the new filler is placed multiple times under the tissue from the same origin, it creates a set of lines of filler all coming back to the same injection site like the spines on a fan. It is used to cover the wide areas of the face, like the cheeks.

How long do fillers last?

Different injection techniques will advertise different features of the face or mitigate different issues, but will not change the overall length of time that the fillers take to break down. This is usually noticeable 6 months after treatment and they are completely reabsorbed within 12 months.  Many patients will choose to have top-up treatments with us to maintain their dermal fillers W1 after 6 months.

Top facts about dermal fillers from Harley Street Dental Clinic

Are you looking for a way to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery?


At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we can offer our patients a myriad of different facial cosmetic procedures, including treatments such as dermal fillers W1.

Below are 5 things you may not know about dermal fillers W1, so read on to learn more.

Hyaluronic acid is natural

The key ingredient in dermal fillers W1 that we use is hyaluronic acid.

And whilst this can sound intimidating to those who are unfamiliar with it, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring protein that is being replaced by the injections associated with fillers.

After the age of about 30, the body begins to produce less and less hyaluronic acid along with collagen, and this is the reason why the skin becomes more wrinkled and saggy.

By injecting hyaluronic acid, our team can plump your skin, reduce the occurrence of lines and wrinkles and boost your body’s natural production of collagen. Great stuff!

Fillers are not the same as wrinkle injections

If you have been looking online at wrinkle injections, you may have concluded that hyaluronic acid and wrinkle injections are the same thing.

In short, they aren’t.

Wrinkle injections typically involve a protein being injected into the nerves, allowing the surrounding muscles to relax and thus the wrinkles to lessen over time (usually 3-4 months).

Fillers, however, are just that; an injection that fills the wrinkles with hyaluronic acid, plumping the skin. The two treatments can be used together, but our team will need to determine whether it is required.

The results are not permanent

It is a sad reality that no cosmetic treatment is permanent, and when it comes to dermal fillers, the longevity of the results will depend on where the fillers have been injected, your age at the time of injection and your lifestyle choices.

For instance, if you have fillers injected under your eyes (one of the shorter-lived areas for fillers), you smoke and are in your 50s, the results will not be as long-lived as they would’ve been for a non-smoker in their 30’s having fillers injected in their foreheads.

For better guidance on how long your fillers may last, please talk to our team.

There is no downtime required

As fillers are considered a non-invasive procedure, there is no real downtime involved.

However, you will need to refrain from rubbing the area where you have had the injection for a minimum of 24 hours post-treatment. Pressure directly on top of the fillers within this period can cause them to move under the skin. Similarly, an increase in metabolic activity, such as strenuous exercise, can also cause the fillers to move; therefore, the gym is best avoided too.

But, you can have fillers injected by our team during your lunch break if needed and return to work straight after with no ill effects.

You need a professional!

Whilst it can seem like a simple procedure to have performed, things can go wrong when dermal fillers are injected, and so, you should do your homework when looking for a professional to inject them. Our team at Harley Street Dental Clinic is trained in this procedure and has helped thousands of patients restore their appearance using dermal fillers.

Why choose dermal fillers?

If you are struggling with your self-confidence due to lines and wrinkles on your face, and are wondering what your options might be to improve this, we can help you. At our practice, we can provide you with dermal fillers W1, a facial aesthetics treatment which is only growing in popularity.


What is it?

The filler that we use here at Harley Street mainly consists of sterile hyaluronic acid gel, which works very well due to the fact that as someone ages, they lose their natural hyaluronic acid and the effect of this means that skin loses its fresh plumpness. This treatment can simply fill in those areas with the gel where it has been lost, and in turn it will smooth out your lines and wrinkles.

How does it work?

We will generally have a quick consultation with you before your actual filler appointment, just to lay out all of the details about the process and what is used. We can also have a chat with you to make sure that it is the right treatment for your needs. If all goes well and you decide you want to get dermal fillers W1 with us, we will book you in for your appointment.

When you come to our practice for your appointment, we will take good care of you right from the beginning and do everything we can to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We will start by administering local anaesthetic to the area, to minimise discomfort throughout the process. After this, we will inject the filler into the desired areas, which usually only takes a few short minutes. It’s as simple as that!

Depending on factors such as your skin type and the injection technique that we use with you, your results can last ranging from 6-12 months. And once this time is over, we can have follow-up treatments with you to maintain your smoother skin if you wish to do so.

Curious to learn more about the treatments we offer? Here, we will discuss dermal fillers W1 to help you decide if this procedure is right for you.

What are fillers?

Under the surface of the skin, there is a group of naturally occurring proteins such as collagen and hyaluronic acid that help to keep the skin looking firm and wrinkle-free.

Once most people hit the age of 30, the production of these proteins begin to reduce and thus, wrinkles appear to look deeper.

The dermal fillers W1 that we use are made of hyaluronic acid which, when injected into the subsurface of the skin, boosts the production of collagen and other acids and allows the skin above it to look firmer and plumper.

What can they treat?

Fillers can treat wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead, on the cheeks and around the smile lines too.

They can be used on certain areas of the neck too, but it is still debatable whether this is effective or not. However, if you aren’t sure that they can be used to improve the appearance of your wrinkles, talk to our team.

How are they applied?

They are applied via a thin syringe into the subsurface of the skin.

This is typically done with minimal discomfort but, if you are worried about pain, we can apply numbing gels before we inject them.

Is there any aftercare I need to know about?

When it comes to hyaluronic acid being injected, there is some rather strict aftercare that can extend the effectiveness of the treatment.

For instance, we advise that you sleep with your head slightly elevated for the first 2-3 days post-injection and that you avoid putting pressure onto the site where you have had the injections as this can cause the filler to move out of position.

Avoid sunbathing, sunbeds, smoking or drinking alcohol for at least 48 hours post-injection.

When can I have them reapplied?

Fillers will typically last between 6-18 months, depending on where they have been applied.

If you are looking to have them reapplied, our team can do this every 6 months. Remember, the lifespan of your fillers will depend on the depth of the wrinkles you are treating, your age and other factors like lifestyle. For more advice on this treatment, contact our team at Harley Street Dental Clinic.

The role of dermal fillers in boosting youthfulness and confidence

Our skin is made up of fat, collagen, elastin and extracellular matrix. Over time we lose the fat in our skin, and our skin loses its collagen and elastin, which results in a hollow appearance of the face, sagging of the skin, lines and wrinkles. This can affect your confidence and your self-esteem and make you unhappy with the way you look. Advances in technology have seen the introduction, establishment and increased popularity of dermal fillers W1 and here at Harley Street Dental Clinic we are proud to offer such cosmetic procedures. Dermal fillers W1 are used to replace lost collagen in the skin to help reduce the visible signs of ageing. They restore and promote a sense of youthfulness and vitality of the skin and overall appearance. If this sounds like what you are looking for then speak to us at our practice and find out more about how dermal fillers W1 can help you feel better about the way you look and bring back your self-confidence very soon.


What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers W1 are most commonly and popularly made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally found substance that provides support and volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is one of the safest forms of dermal filler as it is already present in your body, therefore the chances of an allergic reaction are very slim and make it a popular choice of filler amongst patients and practitioners alike.

Dermal fillers can be used in different areas on your face according to your personal preferences and requirements. Lip fillers are highly popular to help create plump and fuller lips for those that are thinning. Dermal fillers can be used on the forehead or chin to smooth out lines and wrinkles, and they can be used under the eyes to fill in the hollowing of the eye socket. They can be used around the mouth and nose to reduce the signs of creases and frown lines. The hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the skin, attracts water molecules and creates a fuller and plumper appearance of the skin.

The injections may be slightly uncomfortable or you may be afraid of needles, in this case you can have a local anaesthetic which will help ease the discomfort and you can rest assured that our practitioners here at Harley Street Dental Clinic are used to dealing with needle phobias, so don’t let this put you off, we will help put your mind at ease so that you can relax throughout the process.

Dermal fillers provide results which can last from 6 months to a year depending on your individual rate of metabolism and how quickly the hyaluronic acid is metabolised by your body. If you are unhappy with the final look then hyaluronic acid fillers are reversible so speak to us at our dental clinic, book yourself an appointment and you can proceed confidently knowing that not only is the treatment safe and effective, but you can change your mind if you really need to.

Who is a dentist?


A dentist is a professional who examines and treats issues related to the mouth, teeth and gums. They advise and guide individuals towards maintaining good oral hygiene so that they will be able to lead a life of better quality and wellbeing. Furthermore, a dentist will treat and help restore dental health to near normal in individuals that require dental treatment. A dentist will clean an individual’s mouth and remove substances like plaque and tartar. A dentist’s most common activities involve filling teeth, performing minor surgical procedures, and cleaning and polishing teeth.

What are some common dental problems?

Various dental problems affect people at different stages in their life. This might be due to neglecting oral health or bad habits. Some of the most common dental problems include cavities, gum disease, periodontitis, cracked or broken teeth and sensitive teeth. These conditions can impair everyday function and cause severe discomfort and distress.

What are some common dental treatments?

These dental problems can be treated, and there are various treatment options available for these dental disorders. They are fillings, dental crowns, tooth extractions, dental implants, braces, bridges, crowns and dermal fillers in W1.

What are dermal fillers?

Bodies usually alter with age. This might cause wrinkles to appear on the face. Furthermore, as individuals age, their cheekbones might not be as high as they used to be. Dermal fillers help to counteract these ageing signs so that you can look young once more.

Different types of dermal fillers in W1 are more or less addressed in the same way. These are used to smooth skin and wrinkles that might occur due to ageing. According to the classification of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), four types of material are used. In addition, they are categorised according to the kind of material they are manufactured with.

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in W1 is a natural acid that is made in the human body. It is usually found in human skin and cartilage. Fillers made from this substance lasts for a period between 6  to 12 months. This is one of the most popular types of fillers. It helps your face look more full and helps the skin retain moisture.

Calcium hydroxylapatite is found in human bones. Fillers made up from this substance last longer than 12 months.

Poly-L-lactic acid is a biodegradable synthetic substance. Fillers using this substance last up to nearly two years.

Polymethylmethacrylate beads are a substance that can not be absorbed by the body, which makes these fillers permanent. This substance is used as filler around the mouth.

A professional will recommend what sort of filler is most appropriate for you. Therefore it is essential to consult one and do some independent research before opting for any types of fillers mentioned above. As humans, we all want to look good and look our best. Most of us are conscious about our appearance and want to be presentable. The proper treatment at the right time will help you look better and feel better. This will help boost your self-confidence and self-esteem.

Recreating your youthful appearance with dermal fillers W1

What are they?


As we age the skin naturally loses some of its elasticity and firm appearance, which is why many people have begun to seek ways to reapply an element of youth to their physical appearance. This is where dermal fillers W1 come into play. This sterile hyaluronic acid gel is injected into the area that needs lifting and essentially refills the area removing any lines and wrinkles that have appeared as a result of ageing. These fillers are popular in a number of areas of the face, neck, hands and lips where signs of ageing are extremely common. By essentially refilling the areas under the skin the overall appearance becomes fuller and plumper providing a more youthful appearance to your skin.

Where can the process be carried out?

Whilst it is possible to buy some filler gel over the internet, this is certainly not advised, as not only does the precision of the insertion of the gel need to be carefully administered to gain the desired result, but also many of the safety checks that need to be in place are forged or not carried out at all. This can be extremely dangerous as you will be unaware of what is actually being injected into your skin. It is therefore always advised by us that people visit a professional establishment with knowledge on how to carry out the procedure and how to reverse the effects should the end result not be in line with your desired look.

How do dermal fillers W1 work?

Once the appointment has been booked and you are all set to go with your treatment a local anaesthetic will be administered to the area which will be having the filler applied. This ensures that any discomfort that may arise is prevented during the procedure. Once the area is numb the filler is then injected into the skin and within seconds you will be able to see the effect of the filler within your appearance. No waiting times needed or keeping your fingers crossed as the desired result is immediately visible.

Dermal fillers W1 can last between 6 to 12 months, but a variety of factors such as skin type, injection technique and the area of the face injected can affect the length of time the treatment lasts. It is therefore necessary to have follow-up appointments for replumping sessions should you wish to continue with the fuller appearance.

Can the filler be reversed?

Whilst many patients are happy with the outcome of their appearance after having dermal fillers W1, some patients do not like the end result and therefore may request a reversal of the treatment. Rest assured this is entirely possible and can in some cases be carried out within the same appointment. Please discuss this with our team should this be the case.

Please note, all treatments and procedures including the ones mentioned in this article carry potential risks. It is therefore important that all our patients seek further information and advice from our dental practice.
