Dermal Filler

Dermal filler instantly restores volume and smooths out lines and folds in the face. It can add volume and definition to the lips and remodel the jawline and chin area. Best results are often achieved through a combination of anti-wrinkle injections, dermal filler, and skin-boosters such as Profhilo. Popular dermal filler treatments include:

Anti-wrinkle injections

Many areas of the face can benefit from anti-wrinkle toxin injections. Here are some of the most common areas and the “industry” specific names for the locations you may have heard before: Crow’s feet/ laughter lines, forehead lines or worry lines, frown lines/ glabellar lines, 11s lines, brow lift, nose droop, lip flip, lipstick lines, bunny lines/ nasalis lines, smile lift, a dimpled chin, masseter reduction, gummy smile, and neckbands.

Skin Boosters

Profhilo & Seventy Hyal are two ‘skin booster’ treatments that we offer at East London Aesthetics Clinic. Skin boosters have quickly gained popularity in the aesthetics world, the rapid onset of visible results proving popular for people of all ages. Both Profhilo and Seventy Hyal 2000 are non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid gels. They are similar biologically to dermal filler. The difference between skin boosters and dermal fillers is that whilst dermal fillers add volume below the surface of the skin, skin boosters stimulate the body’s fibroblasts to produce a higher quantity of natural collagen and elastin, which both plump up and tighten the skin, giving a fresher and more glowing look.


Aqualyx is a new product, developed for the reduction of stubborn areas of fat. It is NOT a weight-loss product, but rather, a treatment for what remains after weight has been lost from other methods OR reduction in small pockets of fat that have just ‘always’ been there. 

It’s a product that can be used on many areas of the body as a body contouring and skin tightening treatment. Aqualyx is a safe and effective fat dissolving treatment with long-lasting results
