Dermal Fillers Kent
Dermal fillers are injected into the dermal layer of skin to soften lines and re-volumise the face. They are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the skin that gives it its volume and structure. As we age our levels of hyaluronic acid deplete and the skin begins to lose volume, fold and sag. Dermal fillers are a quick and easy way to restore facial volume and reduce wrinkles.
Fillers can also be injected into the lips to enhance the lip contour and to add volume to the lips and they can be used to redefine the cheeks, chin and nose.
The Skin Clinic uses only the best brands of fillers and each treatment is tailored to suit your individual needs. People age in different ways and lose volume in the face at different rates. It is important that you receive your treatment from someone who is an expert in dermal fillers. Dr Ward and her team have many years experience with facial fillers so you know you are in expert hands. All the staff are advanced injectors and will ensure that your treatment obeys the golden rules of facial symmetry and proportion. The clinic’s ethos is ‘less is more’ and so your clinician will ensure that your results look natural. The Skin Clinic is not tied to any brand and therefore uses products hand picked by Dr Ward for their superior volumising and anti-ageing results. Brands used include Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal. All dermal fillers used in the clinic are CE certified and comply with European Standards and Regulation.
Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. Your clinician will prepare your skin by applying a local anesthetic cream to help reduce any discomfort. The injections may cause a little bit of localized discomfort but should not be painful.
Your skin may look slightly red after your treatment. Minor bruising may occur which you may want to cover up with a concealer. If you have had your lips treated these tend to be rather sensitive and may swell a little for the first few days. You may want to schedule your appointment for a time when you do not have important meetings.
You will notice some improvement immediately afterwards and will continue to see improvements over the first week as the hyaluronic acid starts to bind moisture and plump out skin folds.
On average dermal fillers last between 6 and 9 months. Cheeks filler can last up to 18 months. They are not permanent and re-injection will need to be done to maintain desired results.
Fillers can be used in many parts of the face to help soften lines, add volume and restore hydration to the skin . Areas that can be treated include:
- Jowl lines between nose and lips
- Marionette lines (under mouth)
- Perioral lines (around mouth)
- Frown lines
- Cheeks (to replace volume lost in the mid face and drooping)
- Chin (to redefine)
- Lips (to enhance, define and volumise)
- Décolletage areas and neck where sun has damaged the skin
Dermal fillers can be dissolved if you do not like your treatment results.
You should avoid treatments if you are pregnant/breastfeeding or you are sensitive to hyaluronic acid. We do not advise treatment if you have a current facial infection such as herpes/coldsores. Caution should be exercised if you have had any other recent (last 4 weeks) laser/chemical treatment or if you have a tendency to scar or hyperpigment. Please ask your Clinician for further guidance on your suitability for treatment and book a free consultation.

Dr Ward always gets it just right with my treatments and ensures that they look subtle and natural, just the way i like. I started on the Obagi skin care programme and since then there has been no looking back.. Obagi is the best kept secret in anti-ageing!![Jennifer, Kent ]
I often model on Dr Jo’s Botox and fillers course and its great to see her pass on her knowledge and enthusiasm to other professionals. She is clearly highly respected in this industry but what is wonderful is that she hasnt lost that lovely personal and warm touch. This is what sets her apart..Its always a pleasure to be involved”[Kate, Surrey ]
Dr Ward was the first person to really take my son’s acne seriously.. it was like a breath of fresh air..Thank you for listening and for understanding how acne can affect so much in a young person’s life. I highly recommend Doctor Jo Ward to anyone who has struggled in silence with a skin problem”[Jane, Surrey ]
I first met Dr Ward in her Harley Street clinic. Since then I have followed her to every clinic she has ever worked in!! Such is my faith in her… When you find a reliable and excellent cosmetic physician, travelling a few extra miles is worth it..”[Alex, London ]
The new Skin Clinic in Sevenoaks is wonderful. I have no doubt Dr Ward will soon have a queue at her clinic door..Not only is she the best injector in town but she is so warm and so passionate about what she does its infectious.. I leave every consultation with a renewed interest in my skin”[Rose, Kent ]
