Available at the superb Elena Prousskaia Clinic in Bristol from one of the best female cosmetic surgeons in the UK, Dermal fillers are a highly effective and affordable non-surgical injectable that can make anyone look refreshed, more youthful and re-energised.
The fillers are often the best option for anyone who wants an enhanced appearance but does not want a more invasive full cosmetic procedure.
Essentially, dermal fillers provide the best of both worlds – that youthful lift in appearance but without the need for surgery or a payment stretching to thousands of pounds.
In Bristol, there are many clinics and beauticians who offer this treatment so why consider Elena Prousskaia?
With Elena, you receive a level of expertise that is unsurpassed, Elena is a word-renowned cosmetic surgeon who has held numerous Fellowships around the world, including at London’s Guys and St Thomas. She carries this level of training, precision and skill into her work with injectables.
This greater knowledge of facial anatomy enables Elena to introduce the fillers to multiply layers and produce truly transformative results.
You don’t have to be a leading cosmetic surgeon to be able to work with injectables and apply a dermal filler, but why allow someone with few qualifications and limited, if any, training to inject Hyaluronic Acid into your face?
Dermal Fillers – A Wide Range Of Uses For The Face
Dermal fillers can be used to enhance numerous parts of the face, these including the lips, cheekbones, nose and across the forehead.
The skin can also look rejuvenated and that bit more youthful, creating an overall appearance of well being.
Dermal fillers in Bristol are used to promote anti-ageing, for the treatment of lines and wrinkles, for improving the nose to mouth region and reducing mouth lines.
The treatment can have the following advantages.
Popular areas for filling lines and creases include:
Laughter lines (nasolabial furrows)
Tear-trough lines (under-eye furrows)
Lip or lip-border enhancement
Chin or jaw line enhancement
Raising mouth corners
Any area that has lost volume and plumpness is a candidate for the procedure, the filler acting to stimulate the lost collagen.
How Dermal Fillers Work And Details About The Procedure
The dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically containing hyaluronic acid, that act to fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue in the face.
They work to counteract the effects of ageing and specifically the fact that from our mid 20s we stop producing collagen and elastin to the same levels. This effect continues until the point whereby we stop producing these altogether.
The process is therefore to inject the dermal filler into the face to counteract the loss of these naturally occurring substances; the skill lies in how much to inject and where, while the quality of the fillers used must also be considered.
Results can last for a lengthy period – typically in the range of six to 18 months, nine months to one year being very typical – a more detailed estimate being given based on the exact nature of the procedure.
The injections are performed as an out-patients procedure and there is no need for an overnight stay.
Results That Are Beneficial But Natural
One of the benefits of entrusting someone as skilled as Elena with injecting the filler is that you have the cosmetic surgeon’s understanding of how to achieve best results. Results have to be visible, they have to make a difference, but they also have to be natural looking.
The person who receives dermal fillers should look that bit younger, rejuvenated and energised, but they should still be themselves. There should not be that very visible look of ‘work having been done’.
Side Effects of Dermal Fillers
One huge advantage of these treatments and this form dermal fillers is that it is possible to have a procedure and then go about the rest of your day as usual.
There is no need for time off work for instance, nor to avoid exercise or driving.
Some swelling, redness and tenderness are quite common after a treatment of dermal fillers but these typically pass inside 48 hours.
The injections can also hurt a little, though this is mild discomfort at worst. They are administered with a mild anaesthetic to numb the local area.
The Importance Of A Consultation
The consultation is as important as the injections themselves.
At a detailed consultation, the practitioner can discuss the achievable outcomes with the prospective patient. This ensures that results match expectations while also helping to determine the best course of action is selected.
You can outline which bits of your face you are seeking to have boosted while a practitioner, if experienced enough, can decide how this can be achieved; the amount to be injected and where and how to layer these injections so that they work with the natural facial aesthetics.
A consultation also allows anyone to give due consideration to whether this treatment and fillers are truly for them, they can go away and make a final decision free of any pressure.
Cost Of Dermal Fillers
The cost of fillers will be broadly similar across all qualified, experienced practitioners – please be wary of any fillers that seem far cheaper as these are liable to be low-quality products.
The cost varies by the nature of treatment and amount of filler – however a detailed quote would be provided by Elena at the consultation.
Bristol Practitioners For Dermal Fillers
Across Bristol, there are dozens of dermal filler clinics, individuals and beauticians who offer dermal fillers and similar treatments as a service.
This proliferation is largely because, surprisingly, almost anyone can administer a dermal filler, unlike in other country where it is necessary to be more highly qualified.
Whoever you choose, please ensure they have a proven reputation, use the highest quality fillers and have a level of experience you would expect of someone who is going to be administering injections.

Elena was recommended to me and as soon as I met her I felt entirely comfortable. Her explanations made sense in terms of expectations. Having made the big decision I did feel nervous but had absolute trust and confidence in Elena. I knew I was in the best hands. Elena's team is so supportive, my questions were answered with patience and understanding. My care at the McIndoe Centre was excellent. I am five weeks post op for abdominoplasty and liposuction and last week. Quite amazing to see the before and after pictures! I am so pleased that I was fortunate enough to meet Elena and have no hesitation in recommending her.
SM – Abdominoplasty & Liposuction
I have been both physically and mentally uncomfortable in my body since I was 12. I was born with ‘breast mutation’ and I first had surgery to correct this through the NHS at 16 years old. The surgery I have had with Elena, 17 years later, has removed the NHS implants, one of which had ruptured, and completely altered the shape of my chest. By doing this she has made me look and feel like a woman for the first time in my life. She is at all times quietly kind and fiercely adept. A true artist. She has surrounded herself with the most wonderful team and I cannot thank them all enough for the new lease of life that I have been given.
EG – Removal & Replacement of Implants
I have been self conscious for the whole of my adult life and I cannot express how much this surgery has changed things for me. Both mentally and physically. I highly recommend Elena. She supported me throughout my journey from start to finish. Elena is very particular which for me is really important. Elena really took care of me from initial consultation right through to surgery and aftercare.My scaring is minimal and I am absolutely over the moon with my results. Thank you Elena!
JB – Breast Reduction
Elena is an OUTSTANDING surgeon. I had PIP implants and was looking to have them changed. I knew Elena was the surgeon to help, she put me at ease and explained my options. The lovely ladies in her office were helpful, I wanted to get sorted asap, when an alternative date was available contacted me straight away. I received outstanding care from start to finish from Elena, her team and the hospital. The aftercare is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, can call any time. I was so relaxed, I knew I was in great hands. The final results are fantastic. Elena has worked magic and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so glad I found her. I can’t thank her and her team enough.
LMS – implant Removal & Replacement
Had surgery with Elena in September, I was extremely anxious about the whole thing, but Elena and her whole team, from admin to the hospital staff were amazing with me and reassured me throughout my journey. I can not recommend Elena enough, and she has changed my life for the better! Already saving for my next operation with her!
