Non-surgical fillers can restore patients’ youthful faces giving them back a radiant glow, while using our tailored anti-ageing treatments.
We do not use animal based fillers on your skin, lines or wrinkles.
Why are Fillers popular and what are the benefits?
As a natural part of aging the skin on our face begins to thin and loosen, our lips tend to become thinner, and both wrinkles and fine lines begin to form around the crevices of our face. Fillers can rebuild your confidence by giving your skin a rejuvenating make over.
Injectable filler provides immediate beautifying results with almost no recovery time. Watch your appearance transform in minutes, depending on what treatment you choose. After the procedure, you won’t have to worry about recovery time, you can continue to go about your daily routine or even go back to work. They don’t call fillers a ‘lunchtime facelift’ for no reason!
Injectable fillers are designed to fill out troublesome fine lines and wrinkles, and plump up areas such as your cheeks or chin, restoring a fresher faced look and enhancing your features further. They are also very effective in making thin and narrow lips fuller by adding volume and depth.
Short acting fillers are mostly based on Hyaluronic Acid, which is naturally present in the skin, and can help moisturising levels within the skin whilst boosts tone. Using Hyaluronic Acid means the filler, when injected, will feel natural underneath your skin. It is also a powerful moisturising agent, again helping the skin look more vibrant as the Dermis loses moisture with age. At LINIA we use fillers that are natural and in gel form, this form of filler flows easily and smoothly into the skin.

- Lip enhancement
- Lines and wrinkles on and around the lips (Marionette lines)

Our practitioner will discuss which one would be most effective for you when you attend a consultation.
How Does the Non-surgical Dermal Filler Procedure Work?
A mild anaesthetic cream is applied to the area that is to be treated and left on for around 30-40 minutes. Then the filler is injected using a very fine needle into the skin according to the desired area of the face.
For lips, a dental block can be used if you prefer. Results are visible immediately. The filler dissolves naturally over a period of months.

Will my consultation be with a surgeon?
All consultations take place with a specialist surgeon at LINIA. We believe that only a surgeon with years of experience can help and advise you on the best procedure to achieve the results you would desire.
During your initial consultation, we will ask you about the results you are looking for and explain the procedure so that you understand every stage of the process. The most important conclusion after your consultation is that you feel completely at ease in our care and that you are fully aware of the procedure and the resulting enhancement.
Are your consultations free?
All our consultations are free with no obligation. You will be provided with expert advice and relevant information to achieve the results you desire. After seeking advice with our consultant, you can have the treatment on the day of your appointment.
What happens after Filler treatment?
The fillers we use are non-toxic, non-allergenic products, which do not contain any animal ingredients. They have all been used safely on thousands of patients since the establishment of LINIA. Side effects are minimal, though you should expect a little discomfort whilst being injected, and you may experience some short-term bruising and swelling after the treatment. If you wear make-up you should avoid doing on the day of the treatment as well as the day after to help the healing process.
