Do Dermal Fillers Work? 11 Problems That Dermal Fillers Can Help

Dermal Fillers London Kent

‘Do dermal fillers work?’ is one of the most frequently asked questions at our award-winning clinic in Kent, near London. Dermal fillers can be used in such a variety of ways to reshape, smooth and refine your appearance that the best way to answer the question is to dedicate a blog post to it. 

So keep reading to find out the most effective dermal filler treatments…

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a thick, clear substance that naturally occurs in your skin, hair, joints and eyes. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for maintaining moisture in your skin – it can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water.

Our dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid that has been derived from plant extracts, unlike some that are not animal-free. 

What Can Dermal Fillers Do?

Our Kent based aesthetic specialists are experts in using dermal fillers in a variety of ways to rejuvenate and smooth your skin, as well as to enhance your features.

Volumise Lips

Lip fillers can help to give your lips more volume, reduce wrinkles around the mouth and give you more defined lips. Lip fillers are a very popular treatment with patients travelling from all over Kent and London to be treated at our clinic.

During your consultation, we discuss your ideal outcome, assess the proportions of your face and help you understand the different dermal fillers available.

Fine Lines and Wrinkle Reduction

As you age, the appearance of wrinkles and lines become more apparent. This is due to the decline in your natural collagen production. Collagen is your body’s natural skin ‘plumper’, and from around the age of 25, it slowly decreases leaving behind sagging skin. 

Dermal fillers are one of the most effective ways to manage this loss of volume. The hyaluronic acid helps to ‘fill’ out any areas that you are concerned about. 

One of the most common areas that people choose to use dermal fillers for anti-ageing is the forehead where frown lines (also called number 11 lines) and glabellar lines (worry lines) are prominent.

Cheek Lift

The cheeks are one area that suffers from the loss of collagen. The skin can start to droop, which not only unbalances your face but also causes a knock-on effect to your jawline as the skin can cause folds in your lower face.

Cheek fillers gently reinstate lost volume by lifting your skin and instantly making you look more youthful.

Cheek fillers are also favoured as a way to enhance your appearance or address any concerns you have with your facial structure.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines are the lines that run from the corners of your lips down to your chin. These particular wrinkles can make you look much older and are hard to conceal.

Dermal fillers are ideal for treating marionette lines as they have the ability to smooth out the skin without affecting your ability to fully express yourself. 

Tear Troughs

The area under your eyes is very delicate. It is most often the area that shows signs of ageing first. Shadows and eye bags are made worse by the hollowing that occurs when collagen and fat start to reduce. This hollow area is referred to as a ‘tear trough’ and is another zone that doesn’t respond as well to creams and serums alone.

Dermal fillers help to replenish the lost density, which immediately rejuvenates your appearance, giving you a brighter, more awake look.

Smokers Lines

Smokers lines, also called lipstick lines, are tiny fine lines that run vertically from the top of your lip towards your nose. These lines deepen over time and are the result of repetitive facial expressions or a side-effect of smoking.

Dermal fillers are the most effective non-surgical solution for softening lip lines, with results lasting up to a year.

Brow Lift

Dermal fillers provide a lift to sagging areas of skin. Our specialised techniques allow us to subtly lift your drooping brows to give you a fresher, open-eyed look. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance your brow shape and give you a symmetrical finish. 


Dermal fillers aren’t just restricted for use on your face – they can be used to plump and smooth other areas that suffer from collagen depletion. One such area is the skin on your hands. 

Hands can show signs of ageing as much as your face can, and since they’re exposed to much more use the skin can look crepey and loose more quickly. Our Kent, London and Essex patients use dermal fillers to keep their hands looking smooth and youthful.

Surprising Uses For Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers have played a role in aesthetic medicine since the 70s, but with scientific advances over the past decade, we have seen leaps in what dermal fillers can be used to treat. Below are some of the more recent developments in cosmetic solutions;  

Labial Puff

Labial laxity is something that affects a huge proportion of women. Sadly, intimate women’s health issues are often underrepresented in the media so many women suffer in silence, thinking that they are alone. That’s why at Elite Aesthetics we want to give women the freedom and courage to address any issues that they find difficult.

Dermal fillers can be used to rejuvenate the labia by restoring volume. This not only treats a variety of health issues such as vaginal dryness, it also helps to rebuild lost confidence. You can read more about the labial puff in our blog post here.

Reshape Your Nose

There’s a belief that the only way to change your nose shape is by going under the knife. That’s simply not true! Dermal fillers can help to reshape your nose in less than an hour with zero downtime.

Whether it’s a bump on your nose bridge, a lift to the tip or subtle refining, by implementing strategic use of dermal fillers we can create a profile you will love. This blog post shares more information on non-surgical rhinoplasty in Kent, near London, so take a look to find out more.

Resurface Scarring

Deep scarring can have an effect on your confidence, especially if make-up draws more attention to the area rather than covers it up. Dermal fillers help to raise indentations that scarring leaves, giving you a smooth, even skin surface.

We can help you with acne scarring, surgical scars or scars from accidents. Dr Shirin will be able to assess your scars and make suggestions about the best course of treatment.  

Are Dermal Fillers For You?

The above covers the majority of the effective uses of dermal fillers, and each has a wealth of success stories to go with it. Dermal fillers are incredibly safe, painless and deliver immediate results.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
