No matter what your concern, we can help. If you would like a dermal filler treatment, we offer a full consultation to discover the best options for you. Many patients at the clinic are beginners when it comes to facial aesthetic treatment, and we help them with subtle, yet recognisable enhancements. Dermal fillers are not just for women; Dr Yiannis has vast experience and knowledge in treating male patients and has a loyal clientele.
Facial ageing is a multifactorial process that affects different structures including bone, muscles and fat distribution. As a result skin appears drier, less elastic, with volume loss and collagen reduction that contributes to formation of wrinkles, deep folds and areas of skin depression or sagging.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal filler is a viscoelastic gel of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, sterile, transparent of non-animal origin that is injected to create volume and correct wrinkles, restore hydration and reshape and redefine facial contours.
Taking no longer than 30 minutes, tiny quantities of HA filler are injected in the treatment areas via a series of small injections, with immediately visible results that last for up to 6-18 months. Most of the leading products contain local anaesthetic making the process relatively painless, but additional topical anaesthetic can be applied upon request.
Following the treatment, some redness, mild pain, bruising and swelling might occur at the site of injection. These are common side effects of mild severity that usually resolve in 48 hours, although not everybody gets these symptoms. Results are subtle but effective enhancements to compliment your natural beauty and to pause the effects of ageing while avoiding frozen, bloated expressions.
Broadly speaking, dermal fillers can be used to correct hollowness in the temples, improve volume loss and darkness under the eyes (tear trough), enhance and hydrate the lips, soften the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) and marionette lines (distinct lines running from the corner of the lips- “sad look”) and define the jaw line.
Patients with active pathology (acne, herpes, rosacea), skin inflammation or unhealed skin alteration are advised to avoid any treatment. Anyone who has had a chemical peel or laser treatment will need to wait 2 weeks before injections are administered. Anti-wrinkle injections are not advised for anyone pregnant or breastfeeding.
Dr Yiannis is brilliant, he takes time to listen to you and really understand what you want. He puts safety first - in fact, he will even tell you NOT to pursue certain treatments. Last year, I had an extremely rare reaction (nothing he did wrong, it’s my body rejecting a certain brand which almost NEVER happens) and his treatment and care was incredible. He was so caring, he prioritised my care and fixed the problem. He is the only practitioner for any anti-ageing treatment that I will see in the UK.
I have been going to Dr Valilas every 3 months for several years now, and truly cannot recommend him highly enough. From his relaxed demeanor, his professional approach, his ability to recommend & remedy areas I have of concern with simple, natural-looking enhancements, whilst also a gentle way to steer me (I’m stubborn) away from unnecessary procedures I may want but don’t need! Every time, flawless. The amusing thing is that I’m an identical twin, and every time when I’m back in Australia for my yearly visit, people are always commenting on how “great...healthy...young” I look, and can’t put their finger on why….Which I guess is the beauty of it all! This guy rocks. I wouldn’t go to anyone else, so god forbid he left his craft.
This is the anti-wrinkle guru. Hands down the best - for sure in London. I have also done fillers with him (nasolabial fold) and the results were amazing. He really takes his time, explains everything in detail, takes record of every change and every treatment and very much tries to accommodate everyone's busy time schedule. Cannot recommend him highly enough.
