Fillers Glasgow

Dermal fillers are the second most popular non surgical treatment after botulinum toxin injections and are being used for more advanced techniques including cheek augmentation, non surgical rhinoplasty and hand rejuvenation. At present fillers are classed as medical devices although the Sir Bruce Keogh review recommends changing dermal fillers to prescription only medicines which would allow better regulation and monitoring of who is injecting these.

It is estimated that 30 million patients around the world have been treated with some form of hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid fillers are most widely used in the UK and have a very high safety profile. In the UK at present there are approximately 160 different dermal fillers however in the USA less than 10 dermal fillers are actually FDA approved for cosmetic use. Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm and Belotero are all commonly used FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers. Radiesse is a calcium hydroxylapatite filler which stimulates collagenesis and therefore lasts longer than a hyaluronic acid filler so is another popular choice of filler which is also FDA approved.
