At Aesthetic Virtue in London, we are completely focused on you as an individual and will always strive to give you a natural-looking end result that exceeds your expectations and makes you feel confident about your appearance.
The non-permanent dermal fillers used by Aesthetic Virtue present a non-invasive and cost effective means of reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Most importantly, they have a proven safety record. The results that can be achieved using dermal fillers for facial lines and wrinkles are stunning and natural looking, giving your face a smoother, younger appearance immediately.
At Aesthetic Virtue, Harley Street london Clinic London, we are also able to treat facial lines and wrinkles with Botox (or with a combination of Botox and dermal fillers). We will be happy to discuss these options with you in more detail at a consultation.
At the London based Aesthetic Virtue clinic, we use a range of hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal. These are non-permanent fillers and their effects typically last for six to 12 months.
The hyaluronic acid used in these dermal fillers is produced biosynthetically by bacterial fermentation. (Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. It gives volume to the skin, lubricates the joints and gives the eyes their shape).
We also use longer lasting calcium hydroxyl appatite Radiesse fillers. Radiesse is a unique dermal filler made from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres in a water based gel carrier. It is 100% biocompatible, so no allergy testing is required before use. Radiesse is biodegradable and will gradually break down and be absorbed by your body. However, the results are longer lasting than those of the non-permanent hyaluronic acid fillers, typically lasting for 12 months or longer in many patients.
All of our dermal filler options have a proven safety record and have been fully approved for use in Europe and the US.
Please arrange a consultation to discuss your treatment options in more detail.

What are dermal fillers?
Most dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid, a substance which is naturally found in the body. As we grow older, the amount of hyaluronic acid produced by the body starts to decrease (from our late 20s onwards), leaving skin which is dry and less hydrated. Injecting fillers into the skin is a method of restoring volume where it is depleted, or enhancing areas that lack volume.
What happens during the treatment?
At Aesthetic Virtue, we offer a thorough consultation which includes a discussion with the patient of the perceived problems and areas to be treated, facial examination and explanation of the various treatment options. A consent form is signed and pre-treatment photos are taken. Following a choice of numbing cream or local anaesthetic (depending on the area to be treated), the substance (which is in gel form) is injected into the dermis (middle layer of the skin) in small increments using a very fine needle. Results are immediately apparent. The treatment is carried out with the patient holding a mirror to judge the results and volume.
How long does the treatment take?
The injecting time can vary as this is volume dependent. It usually takes between ten and 30 minutes per area.
How quickly will I notice an effect?
The change in volume is immediately noticeable. However, it is common for the treated area to be a little bit red, swollen or even slightly bruised for a short while after.
How long do the effects of the treatment usually last?
This is highly dependent on individual variation and the area of the anatomy into which the filler is injected. Other factors such as smoking, age, degree of correction required, volume injected, type of filler etc. also contribute to this variable.
What are the possible side effects?
This is a very safe procedure in the hands of highly skilled and experienced practitioners, such as those found at Aesthetic Virtue. Common side-effects include redness, bruising and swelling and mild lumpiness. These usually resolve within a few hours, but bruises may last a couple of days.
Are there any possible serious complications?
Complications are very rare with dermal fillers but can include infection, severe bruising, cyst formation, granuloma formation, asymmetrical results or skin necrosis.
Is this treatment reversible?
Treatments with hyaluronic acid fillers can be reversed using hyalase to dissolve the product.
Avoid applying make-up over the treated area. Very gentle massage and an ice pack may help reduce the swelling and bruising. Sleep on two pillows for the first night to help alleviate any swelling, avoid hot baths, showers, saunas and strenuous exercise, as well as alcohol for four to six hours post treatment.

All my questions were addressed, treatment options, outcomes, potential side effects and after-care instructions were very clear. And the procedure was far less painful than I had imagined!
A gentle hand… you might have very possibly cured my needle-phobia finally! And thank goodness, as everybody thinks I’m looking younger and fresher now!
A clinic that insists on natural results! Fabulous! Now I’m loving the compliments.
Dr Raina has been my doctor for the last 18 months, and she will be for many months longer.
Recently my 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful full lips) told me she wanted to get her lips enlarged and that she had already spoken to another doctor about it, who was willing to do it for her. I took her along with me to discuss it with Dr Raina who explained to her that her natural lips are very nice and in proportion with the rest of her face. She mentioned that more volume will ruin the proportions and she would look ‘done’. We are both very grateful for the honesty there.
A very professional, honest and straightforward doctor with surgical skills to match! My right earlobe split 6 years ago, and I was too anxious to have it repaired.
Now, I have no idea why I didn’t get it done sooner!
After discussing the pros and cons of removing the mole on my face, I finally underwent the procedure. Three months on, I am very pleased with the result. I appreciate the no frills honesty and straightforwardness.
Highly professional… I will certainly be recommending you!
