At the Light Touch Clinic, our talented medical practitioners can use FDA-approved dermal fillers to smooth away wrinkles and restore lost volume for a more youthful appearance. Whether we are gently plumping your lips or improving the appearance of under eye dark circles, we pride ourselves on our natural results. We want you to leave the clinic feeling confident and looking your best.
We typically use Restalyne and Juvederm for our filler treatments. Made from moisturising hyaluronic acid, these fillers are compatible and non-permanent. In addition, we also have advanced dermal fillers like Profhilo, which provides deep hydration whilst smoothing and tightening the skin.
Dermal Filler injections are a fantastic non-surgical alternative to cheekbone enhancement surgery.
The injection is designed to restore volume in the cheeks, cheekbones and chin that is lost with ageing. This leaves the cheek area looking fuller, smoother and naturally more youthful.
The treatment can also help stimulate collagen production, which aids the natural generation of stronger, smoother and more youthful skin.
As lips age, they become thinner and lose shape. To enhance lip definition, here at the Light Touch Clinic we use Dermal Fillers to restore plumpness and create beautifully shaped lips.
The enhancement can specially target many areas of the lip, including the upper and lower lip, Marionette lines and ‘Cupid’s Bow’.
By targeting the problem areas of the lip our medical practitioners can create a very natural and subtle look that can make thin lips appear fuller, help reverse drooping corners of the mouth and create a more defined smile.
With age, the area under our eyes loses volume, causing dark circles which can make you look ‘tired’. By gently injecting filler in this area, our skilled practitioners can refresh the eye area so you look more bright-eyed and awake.

Dermal fillers replenish the natural collagen and hyaluronic in our skin and in doing so replace lost volume and plump out wrinkles, making them an ideal procedure for treating cheeks and lips.
At the Light Touch clinic we believe in replacing lost volume, not adding volume that wasn’t there in the first place. You will the leave the clinic looking refreshed and rejuvenated, not artificially puffed-up like some celebrities!
We use Restylane® and Juvederm® – two of the leading dermal fillers on the market. Both are FDA-approved and temporary – this means your body should break them down over 6-12 months, so in the unlikely event you are not satisfied with the results they are not permanent. These dermal fillers are well tolerated by most people because they are made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in our body responsible for lubricating the skin and joints.
Your dermal filler treatment will only be administered by one of our practitioners using the latest minimally invasive techniques.
What does the treatment involve?
Small quantities of filler are injected into the areas where you have wrinkles, furrows or loss of volume. Our practitioners often use a micro-cannula to administer the filler. By using a cannula our patients benefit from less pain, less bruising, less swelling, less risk of complications and a smooth, natural-looking result.
What will my skin look like afterwards?
The effects of a dermal filler treatment are immediate but you may experience a small amount of swelling and/or bruising which may take a few days to subside.
Are dermal fillers safe?
As long as they are administered by a trained medical practitioner who is experienced in the anatomy of the face, dermal fillers should be safe. The hyaluronic acid gel is completely natural and over time is broken down and assimilated back into the body causing no harm to you.
What are the risks and complications?
All non-invasive procedures carry a small amount of risk which is why they are only administered after a face to face consultation with one of our practitioners during which a full assessment will be carried out and a full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
Are dermal filler injections my only option?
No, there are several other treatments that may be more suitable for your skin concern including Wrinkle-relaxing injections or INTRAcel. Before you undergo any injectable treatment you will be invited for a consultation with one of our practitioners who will analyse your skin and help you decide which treatment option is most suitable.
At the Light Touch Clinic, our injectable treatments are only performed by medical practitioners.
