What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers used at Equinox are those made from a naturally occurring sugar called hyaluronic acid, which is a molecule that is already present in the body. The primary function of Hyaluronic Acid is to hydrate by absorbing water. As we age, levels reduce which cause a loss of hydration leading to lines and wrinkles. When used in dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid is a gel-like product that, once injected, attracts water to regenerate volume and recreate lost volume and combines with collagen and elastin to help provide skin structure and elasticity.
Some of the benefits of Dermal Fillers are:
- Filling wrinkles, facial lines and creases giving you a youthful complexion
- Lip rejuvenation for plumping up thin lips
- Disguising scars and eliminating acne scars
- Adding plumpness and volume to cheeks
- Contouring your jaw line and other facial areas
- Eliminating crow’s feet, under-eyes, lip and frown lines, ageing wrinkles, chin crease, and mouth frowns
Where Can Dermal Fillers be Used?
The most common areas that are prone to volume loss as we age are the cheeks, jawline, temples, lips, nasolabial folds and lower eyelids. Dermal fillers are not only used for volume loss they can also be used to enhance, balance or hydrate existing features.
After your initial consultation with one of our highly experienced nurse injectors, we will discuss the appropriate premium dermal filler and injection method to achieve optimal results.

What does treatment with dermal fillers involve?
Dermal filler treatments are classed as a non-surgical procedure, however, as you can imagine as with any injection, there may be some slight discomfort, which will differ from person to person.
Discomfort will also vary with the type of filler used and the area being treated. For particularly sensitive areas, local anaesthetic cream or ice will be applied to the skin prior to treatment. The dermal filler also contains local anaesthetic, which assists with any discomfort.
After your initial consultation and treatment plan, the procedure may take 20-45 minutes.
What are the side effects?
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks and the possibility of side effects; these can include injection site redness, pain, firmness, swelling, lumps or bumps, bruising, itching or discolouration. All side effects and risks will be discussed in detail with the Nurse during your consultation.
What is the down time and after care following dermal fillers?
Generally, you will be able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment; however, it is recommended that you do not have treatment prior to important engagements in the event that you encounter any side effects. There are some specific restrictions immediately following treatment and aftercare is extremely important in preventing unwanted side effects of dermal fillers and to ensure optimal results.
It is recommended that clients avoid:
- Exercise for at least 24-48 hours after treatment
- Avoid exposure to the sun
- Facials or saunas for at least 5 days after treatment
- Facial massages, microdermabration, chemical peels, laser treatments should be avoided for a 2- week period.
Detailed after care will be provided following your treatment.
When will I see the results?
After you have had Dermal Fillers the effect will be seen immediately following treatment, however the full results will be most visible after 2-4 weeks. At Equinox we have a selection of high-quality products that we recommend to our patients that will assist in extending the longevity of your procedure.
