Dermal Fillers can be used artistically and delicately by our expert doctors to correct deeper lines, enhance specific facial features including lips, under eye and cheeks and address sagging skin.
A ‘full face’ approach to aesthetic treatments and a thorough understanding of anatomy and facial proportions is essential to delivering results which harmonise with your face and integrate well with your skin.
Facial contouring and re-balancing the face can be achieved with dermal filler. Cheek bones can be highlighted and lifted, jawlines defined, chin’s elongated and temples re-volumised to create a more youthful face shape.
Alternatively, specific lines can be treated including the line between the brows, smile lines, ‘smokers’ lines and the mouth corners can be repositioned to stop them dipping down.
Across all of our clinics we only use market leading products with the most clinical evidence behind them including Juvederm, Restylane, Aliaxin and Teosyal. Our belief is that ‘one shoe does not fit all’ and so the doctor will assess your skin type and treatment goals and carefully select the most appropriate product to suit your needs and deliver the best possible result.
The effects of dermal filler treatments can be seen immediately, and the effects can last for up to 12 months.
The White Swan philosophy is that our unique 6 step consultation protocol, including skin and facial proportion analysis, combined with our gold standard product range is the winning combination. Sometimes a combination of treatments and a longer term, staged treatment plan is required to help you gradually and naturally reach your treatment goals.
We have built our reputation on providing skilful, natural and artistic facial aesthetics and strive to achieve the highest level of client care in our beautiful St Albans clinic.

All consultations are complimentary so please don’t hesitate to contact one of our knowledgeable treatment coordinators on 03335777926 to find our more information or to book an appointment in our St Albans clinic.
Lip filler is made of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and comes in many different types and thicknesses. Our experienced doctors will carefully select the best product to match your lip texture and shape. Some clients simply want to restore the definition that has been lost with age and improve the lip texture and our Teosyal RHA2 or Juvéderm 2 product are perfect for this. Others want an Instagram pout and for this our doctors will often select a Teosyal Kiss which gives real volume and lasts up to 9 months. All our doctors and dentists use numbing cream to make the treatment comfortable and our dentists can even freeze you up completely to ensure the treatment is painless.
Cheek filler can be used to re-volumise the front of the cheek which often flattens with age. A rounder front of the cheek will instantly make the face look more lifted and youthful. Cheek filler can also be used to create beautifully sculpted definition or even give a more “heart shaped” outline to the face. Our Juvéderm products can last up to 12 months and our Voluma or Teosyal Ultra Deep products can last up to 18 months.
The lines that extend from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial folds) and the marionette lines which extend from the mouth downwards can both be very effectively treated with dermal filler. Our cannula technique minimises any bruising or swelling and means our doctors get a beautifully smooth result. This is one of the most popular areas that our doctors treat with dermal filler and it gives an immediate anti-ageing effect.
Defining and improving someone’s profile is the latest trend in aesthetics and this starts with ensuring the chin rests in line, or just behind, the lower lip when viewed from the side profile. Length can also be added to the chin with dermal filler to elongate a rounder-shaped face. The chin itself can also lose its bony structure and become dimpled with age. This can be treated with a combination of a thick dermal filler like our Teosyal Ultimate and Botox to smooth the surface.
Perhaps you are noticing that your jawline has lost shape and definition, something that can happen with age. This can lead to sagging and jowls developing which can be disguised with carefully placed dermal filler. Filler placed at the angle of your jaw also sharpens your side profile and when combined with chin filler, can make a dramatic improvement to your profile. Our Juvéderm products can last up to 12 months and our Voluma or Teosyal Ultra Deep products can last up to 18 months.
Superficial lines above the upper lip, otherwise known as “barcode lines” can be easily treated with a small amount of dermal filler. These lines form because of the muscular activity of the mouth when smoking, puckering the lips or whistling. Dermal filler restores the volume around the mouth and plumps out these superficial lines. The lips themselves can also look and feel “deflated” and a soft Lip filler can treat this and improve the texture of the lips. Combining dermal filler in the mouth area with Botox will give the best long-term results. The addition of the Botox gives a long-term preventative effect to stop new barcode wrinkles forming.
You might notice as you get older that the area around your eyes, called the tear trough, can become sunken. This can lead to the appearance of dark circles, making you look more tired. Hollowing and darkening of the under-eye area can be treated by our skilled doctors using artistically placed dermal filler. We only use specialist under-eye products for this delicate region like Teosyal Redensity II or Aliaxin SR and specialise in a cannula technique which is the safest way to administer the treatment and reduces the risk of bruising.
Botox is the best preventative option for the crease between the eyebrows but if the line is too deep then dermal filler may need to be used, in addition, to create the desired result. This is a very delicate and risky area if the correct technique is not used. Our doctors all have detailed anatomical knowledge and are skilled at administering filler in the glabella area.
If you don’t like the way your nose looks but do not want a surgical rhinoplasty, this treatment might be what you are looking for. Using a dermal filler around the nose can help reshape it without the need for surgery. A small amount of filler can treat minor deformities and can also be used to fine-tune results after surgery. A drooping nose tip, a twisted nose, eliminating a bump and thinning the nose tip can all be achieved with dermal filler alone. The procedure is fully non-surgical and therefore there is very little downtime and immediate results.
Temples are one of the areas which hollow with age, as the underlying bone is lost and the area sinks in. A beautiful thick dermal filler like Juvéderm Voluma can very effectively plump out these temples into their previously more rounded shape. It may not be an area that many clients come in requesting but our doctors often identify temple hollowing and recommend treatment with filler. Clients are amazed what a transformation this small tweak can make.
A beautifully thin dermal filler, which can be easily spread and massaged into the skin, is ideal for treating acne scarring and other types of scars. RHA2 by Teosyal or Aliaxin SR are both perfect options for this. It takes a skilled and experienced physician to treat scarring effectively with dermal filler.
This specialist White Swan technique uses dermal filler in multiple areas and with varying thicknesses to create an overall non-surgical “facelift effect”. After a bespoke consultation, the areas of volume loss will be identified and a treatment plan constructed, mapping out all the required treatment areas. Multiple syringes of dermal filler are used to achieve this lifting and overall anti-ageing effect.
The hands can sometimes be a dead giveaway of someone’s age and now there are many non-surgical solutions to combat this. Dermal filler can plump the hands to reduce a bony appearance, skinboosters and Profhilo can improve the quality and texture of the hands and our Obagi medical grade creams can reduce the sun damage and dark spots. This combination of treatments will give a full hand transformation.
First, the client has a full consultation with a White Swan dentist and ‘before’ photos are taken.
The client then has numbing cream placed over the area. As dentists, White Swan practitioners can completely numb the area with a dental block, making the procedure completely pain free.
Then the area is treated with the dermal filler until the client is happy with the appearance. It is important for the clinician to manipulate and smooth all the filler gel so that there are no lumps and bumps. The area will be red and swollen for 1-2 days and there may be some bruising, which can be reduced with the use of Arnica.
After a week the filler gel will be completely set and smooth and the effect can be fully appreciated.
