Non-Permanent [Up to 1 year]


Processed from safe human tissue that has been donated to US tissue banks in much the same way as transplantable organs. It is mainly used in naso-labial and radial lip folds, perioral lines, depressed corners of the mouth, lip augmentation, and acne scars. It should not be used for wrinkles around the eyes or forehead.

Dermalive® & Dermadeep®

Both are hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers with acrylic hydrogel (a non-resorbable component). Hyaluronic acid is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, but the acrylic hydrogel remains so the effect is longer lasting [over 12 months], with claims a permanent effect can be achieved. Main use is for medium to deep wrinkles such as naso-labial folds (nose to mouth lines), oral commisures (corners of the mouth) and deep glabellar lines (vertical frown lines between the eyebrows). It can also be used to enhance the borders of the lips and to correct facial scars and other minor defects. It should not be used to treat superficial lines and wrinkles or in the body of the lip.


This is used, in the main, for filling DEEP lines and wrinkles, cutaneous depressions and deformities of the face requiring large volumes. This typically includes: cheek and chin augmentation, deep nasolabial folds, scar correction and remodelling and correction following rhinoplasty


Is a completely biocompatible Non-Animal Hyaluronic Acid (NaHA) gel with unusual elasticity; (mono-phasic) giving a considerably better result from the first hours after the injection and over the initial months, in terms of increased volume and wrinkle filling compared to “biphasic” products. Hyaluronic acid is completely broken down within the skin over 6 to 9+ months, eventually leaving no trace of the filler.


Mostly used for enhancement treatments for deep furrows, lip augmentation, facial outlines, naso-labial furrows, glabellar lines and the correction of facial depressions, either due to injury or age-related scaring.

Esthélis® Soft

Is an ideal substance for superficial wrinkles and can be used for perioral wrinkles, lip commissures, crow's feet, and forehead wrinkles.


Is a highly purified collagen in is derived from porcine (pig) tendons. Porcine collagen materials are often used in human medicine, such as heart valve replacements, implantable lenses, and surgical wound dressings. Using Glymatrix™ technology it is able to mimic the properties of the natural collagen found in the skin, the manufacturers claim it will last at least 12 months. EVOLENCE™ is not recommended for use in the eye area.


Is a hyaluronic acid based filler and is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, eventually leaving no trace of the filler. In its various versions it is used in a nearly all areas of the face:


Hylaform® is derived from cockerel combs, is highly purified and has been cross-linked to maximise its viscoelasticity and persistence. It is particularly useful for patients who have a tendency to develop hypertrophic scars. Duration of effect can vary from 6 - 9 months


Juvederm ® also uses the filler hyaluronic acid, with a range of gel particle sizes specifically designed for use in certain areas of the face. On average effects last for 6 - 9 months.


Is a mixture of non-animal stabilised hyaluronic acid 25mg/ml and cross-linked hyaluronic acid 25mg/ml. Matridex contains cross linked hyaluronic acid and dextranomers (dextran molecules) and is used for finer lines such as laughter lines around the eyes and the smoker lines or peri-oral lines above the top lip. Matridur is completely broken down over 6-9 months, whereas Matridex, although the hyaluronic acid is broken down, the microspheres remain to form a stable and permanent implant. Matridex is used for regeneration of the soft tissue of the face when altered by damage, disease or ageing. It can be used for the nose to mouth lines and to remodel the face; fill cheeks, hollows and restore contour.


Is a clear gel non-animal based, hyaluronic acid dermal filler derived from bacterial fermentation. Puragen™ is the only dermal filler product which depends on double cross-link chemistry, not particle size, to make it last longer. Mainly used in glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows), nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) and the lips however, it is suitable for treating virtually the entire facial area. Last a minimum of 6 - 8 months, up to 1 year.


This range consists of three monophasic hyaluronic acid based products of non-animal origin, which have a reduced protein and bacterial endotoxin level resulting in less hypersensitivity reactions. Teosyal 27g is a dense and voluminous implant used to treat nasal furrows, lip augmentation and facial contours. It is injected into the deeper layers of the dermis. Teosyal 30g is suitable for moderate wrinkles of the face and periorbital area

Zyderm® and Zyplast®

Are implants, using Bovine dermal collagen plus 0.3% lignocaine.

Zyderm® 1 implant Is used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, shallow scars and thin-skinned areas.

Zyderm® 2 implant Is used to treat moderate lines, wrinkles and scars. Both are administered by an injection with a fine-gauge needle just beneath the surface of the skin. Zyplast® is a form of injectable collagen that is cross-linked with the chemical glutaraldehyde to strengthen the collagen fibres. It is used to treat pronounced scars, lines, and furrows, as well as to define the lip border.
