Dermal fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid, which occurs naturally in the human body, especially in the skin. It is essential for water retention, wound healing and tissue repair, and is one of the main components responsible for that plump, smooth, youthful look in young skin.

At Glen Dental, Dr. Lina Kotecha uses smooth, non-granular and additive-free fillers from the Restylane range made by Galderma and the Juvederm range by Allergan. Dr. Lina Kotecha uses them for a range of facial rejuvenation treatments including:

  • Anti-ageing treatments, to soften lines and wrinkles, plumping the skin
  • Redefinition, rejuvenation, rehydration and reshaping the lips
  • 8 Point Face Lift or Liquid Face Lift
  • Rebuilding/reshaping cheekbones, jawline and chin
  • To rejuvenate and rehydrate the skin of the hands, face and neck

Our dermal fillers start working instantly, and the effect will last between 6 and 18 months. The fillers include a local anaesthetic, but additional local anaesthetic will be given before treatment to ensure the procedure is entirely pain-free. Dr. Lina Kotecha uses only the latest techniques to administer treatment. Further information on:

Dermal fillers are very safe and suitable for most patients. However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or are susceptible to keloid scarring, this treatment should be avoided. In addition, some medications may mean you are unsuitable for treatment, which is why we take a full medical and drug history as part of your assessment appointment to ensure that treatment is safe for you.

Success stories

Great reviews from our lovely patients in Leicester
  • “I’ve got my cheeks back and a bit of mid face lift from having cheek fillers with Dr Lina. So, I don’t think I need surgery anymore. Thank you ever so much Dr Lina! I will certainly be recommending you to my friends as you have really taken your time to listen to me and give me the look I wanted and it was well worth the train journey to see you.”
