Dermal fillers are used to restore volume and treat lines and wrinkles which are often the first signs of the ageing process.
The dermal fillers that Dr Fiona uses are a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid which are injected under the skin in order to restore volume and contour to facial features. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within our skin and is responsible for the hydrated and plump appearance of youthful skin.
Dr Fiona uses dermal fillers from both Juvéderm as well as Teoxane fillers as, very simply, she feels they are the best quality on the market and give natural and subtle results. These ranges also have local anaesthetic incorporated in it, ensuring comfort during the procedure.
You will be able to see results immediately, with best results seen in approximately 2-3 weeks following treatment. Results can last between 12-18 months, depending on area treated and lifestyle factors.

Frequently asked questions
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
The dermal fillers that Dr Fiona uses in clinic are made of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by the skin. When injected, the hyaluronic acid restores volume which this in turn helps to keep the skin looking plump and smooth.
When Will I See Results and How Long Do They Last?
You will be able to see results from dermal fillers straight away – however it takes around 2-3 weeks for the full results to be seen. Depending on the area treated, results can last between 6-12 months.
Are There Any Risks Associated with Dermal Fillers?
The risks associated with dermal filler include the potential of bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site. Although uncommon, there is also the possibility of infection or asymmetry. Dr Fiona will discuss the potential risks with you during your pre-treatment consultation.
What our patients say...
Fiona is simply brilliant. Makes you feel at ease and her bedside manner is soothing and relaxing. She enhances you in ways you could never imagine and has my skin glowing and happy and dare I say it myself younger !
Dr Fiona is fantastic! Consultations are always relaxed and you never feel pushed into committing to a treatment. I totally trust her recommendations because she listens, talks through the options and her work is beautiful. People say I look ‘well’ but can’t tell I’ve had work done, until I point it out. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Dr Fiona is honest, open and a font of knowledge about all things Skincare and aesthetics related. With one consult, she has me using high end skincare serums with Boots range moisturiser and my skin has not been better. Having someone who is not there to up-sell expensive treatments and skincare is a breath of fresh air.
Amazing service from a doctor that clearly cares about her customers and knows her stuff. Always feel amazing after my treatments, thank you Dr Fiona!

Dr Fiona is an amazing specialist who will provide you with the best and detailed advice on your skin routine and aesthetic treatments ..my skin never looked better! Thank you
Dr Fiona is a warm, friendly and truly skilled professional – I had Profhilo treatment with her and she made the whole treatment so seamless. She took such a detailed interest in my skin health and had a wealth of advice and suggestions to help me, not just focusing on the one treatment I came in for. The Profhilo itself was superb, she made the injections really comfortable and had such a lovely warm, caring personality – I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
Dr Fiona McCarthy is absolutely amazing and I can’t recommend her enough for her expertise, experience and overall genuinely lovely nature. Every visit is extremely positive and she’s helped me so much with not just my skin but my confidence and self worth
