Dermal fillers have revolutionised the aesthetic industry by giving people the chance to restore the volume in their skin, contour their face, and freshen up their appearance WITHOUT having to go under the knife. They also offer quick and visible results with minimal downtime, and thus, their popularity continues to soar by the day.

However, before undergoing ANY procedure — be it surgical or non-surgical — it is incredibly important to grasp the basics to ensure you are making the right choice and successfully reaching your aesthetic goals.

So let’s explore all the uses, benefits, and essential considerations you need to know, make and take BEFORE booking a consultation.


Let’s Begin With The Basics: What Are Dermal Fillers?


Dermal fillers consist of a gel-like substance injected beneath the skin to give it a smoother, fuller look and/or to shape certain areas of the face.

The most popular dermal fillers are the Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers (i.e. Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, and Restylane Lyft) due to their safety and efficacy in helping achieve healthier-looking skin and incredible results.


Dermal Fillers Vs. Botox




Both dermal fillers and botox help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, however:

Dermal fillers include ingredients that add volume to areas that have lost fullness due to ageing, like the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth.

Whereas …

Botox is made from purified bacteria that temporarily paralyse muscles, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial expressions.


Uses Of Dermal Fillers


Dermal fillers can be used in various places and for various purposes.

At NU-U Clinics in Maidenhead, we specialise in various dermal filler treatments. From boosting cheek volume to addressing sunken eyes, enhancing lip contours and volume, to defining jawlines, reshaping chins, and even performing non-surgical rhinoplasties.


What To Expect During/After Treatment?


Dermal fillers are super gentle and involve minimal invasion. Before injection, we apply a numbing cream to ensure your utmost comfort. Then, we carefully measure points on your face to ensure perfect symmetry is achieved.

After your treatment, you will immediately notice results, which will only improve with time! Of course, you may experience some tenderness, redness, and swelling, but do not worry — it goes away within a few days.

To ensure all is well, we will schedule a follow-up appointment 3 weeks later after your treatment to check on your results and make any adjustments if needed because your happiness is our top priority!

How Long Do They Last?


It varies from person to person, depending on their medical status and the treated area; however, dermal fillers typically last around 6 to 9 months.


Do’s & Don’ts




It is essential to understand that dermal fillers may only be suitable for some. Individuals with certain conditions like bleeding disorders or specific allergies may not be candidates for this treatment. If you get the go-ahead from your health practitioner, here are some ….



  • Stay hydrated.
  • Take pain medication to help soothe any potential discomfort.


And Dont’s:

  • Sleep on your face or apply make-up up to 24 hours after treatment.
  • Plan an evening in a flaming hot sauna or hot tub after your treatment, as it can worsen the swelling.
