Facial Fillers - subtly add volume, create contours and plump out lines and wrinkles.
Growing older has many positives as we gain greatly in knowledge, wisdom, experience and confidence. However there are downsides too, including the loss of a youthful look to our skin. Our external appearance may no longer reflect the vibrant person we are inside.
Importantly with fillers, as with Botox, it’s about subtle but noticeable results. Our practitioners are highly qualified, experienced and expert at avoiding well documented faux pas such as the over puffy ‘pillow face’. We are incredibly careful not to over inject and over treat clients with fillers, offering a precision service. The only thing that remains inflated is self-esteem and confidence.
At Woodford Medical we are here to help. We have a combined experience of over 50 years and are leaders in the field of medical aesthetics. We specialise in Botox and fillers and appear in the top 10 injectors in the country as ranked by the Evening Standard. We treat many well-known celebrities and beauty journalists.

Juvéderm Facial Fillers
The Juvéderm range of products is a new generation of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers from Allergan, the world leader in aesthetic products. The latest, cutting-edge development from Allergan uses VYCROSS technology or patented cross linking to stabilise hyaluronic acid and produce a longer lasting product which is both smoother and more supportive than other fillers. Hyaluronic Acid decreases in our skin as we age. It is an important component to aid water retention in the dermis making skin youthful, plump and smooth as a freshly picked ripe tomato or peach. Juvéderm is not only natural and biodegradable – it replaces lost hyaluronic acid in the skin - filling out problematic lines, lending a full and round look. You will instantly notice the results - leaving Woodford Medical feeling confident and youthful.
For patient comfort the Juvéderm range also contains a local anaesthetic called lidocaine.
Juvéderm VOLUMA is the thickest and most supportive filler in the range that helps to sculpt the face by lifting and creating volume. The ageing process involves facial fat loss, a decrease in the skin’s natural elasticity and a reduction in the size of the facial bones. These, aided by the effects of gravity, all combine to alter the shape of our face as we get older. This can leave us feeling depressed and disconsolate when we look in the mirror and note the changes. Juvéderm VOLUMA can restore the face’s balance and heart shaped proportions thereby revolumising and recontouring cavernous cheek hollows and cheekbones to lend a fuller, plumper, softer, more youthful appearance. It can also be used to contour the chin and jaw-line reducing the appearance of the dreaded jowl. The treatment lasts between eighteen and twenty four months and can also be combined with Juvéderm VOLIFT and VOLBELLA or Botox.
For patient comfort Juvéderm VOLUMA also contains a local anaesthetic called lidocaine.
Juvéderm VOLIFT is less dense and more fluid than VOLUMA and is used in conjunction with the latter to soften the look of wrinkles and lift the skin in more delicate areas such as the nose to mouth lines and the oral commisures. It can also help to reshape noses, softening and straightening their overall appearance.
This treatment can last from twelve to eighteen months.
Juvéderm VOLBELLA is lighter and more fluid again and is used in particularly sensitive areas such as around the eye. However its real forte is in the enhancement of the lip both in defining the shape and in volumising the size of the lips. It will soften the appearance of lip lines often a real give away of the ageing process.

Juvéderm Volux is the newest addition to the facial filler family from Allergan. Aesthetic industry research shows that 51% of people want to address the sagging and jowls that they see in their lower face.
As we age the chin tends to shrink and move backwards. This is partly due to a gradual re-absorption of the underlying bone and some loss of fat. The action of the chin muscle tends to want to shrink the chin even further by drawing it backwards. Projecting the chin forward with filler placed in key areas on the chin helps to reverse this process, drawing the area towards its original position, effectively stretching the jawline forwards. Filler can also be placed just behind the chin in the depression between chin and jowl and then along the jawline behind the jowl to the angle of the jaw. This helps to give a very pleasing return of lost definition and youthful looking sharpness to the jawline. This non-surgical procedure is a preferred option for clients who want to achieve a significant improvement without the pain, risk and lengthy recovery time associated with surgery
WHAT IS PROFHILO®?
Profhilo® is a unique stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) for treating skin laxity. It contains a very high concentration of HA and contains a blend of both high and low molecular weight HA. Stability is achieved using a new heat process and avoids the need for chemical additives. Studies have demonstrated a stimulation in the production of four different forms of collagen molecules within the skin.
Profhilo® has the consistency of liquid honey and is administered by five injection sites on each side of the face. The injections have only a very minor discomfort and the HA then spreads out evenly just under the skin surface.
This layer of HA results in improved skin quality and skin hydration both in the dermis and epidermis. The injected HA has also been shown to increase production of your own natural hyaluronic and elastin helping to maintain a more youthful look.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR TREATMENT WITH PROFHILO®?
This treatment is suitable as both a corrective and preventative solution to ageing. After the age of thirty the skin structures, collagen levels and hydration in the skin start to decrease so this is a good time to consider age prevention treatments such as Profhilo that will stimulate these structures to renew.
WHERE CAN PROFHILO®BE USED?
Profhilo® is a rejuvenating treatment to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improving creepiness and skin texture. It is most effective in the face, neck, chest and hands.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Optimum results from treatment will be visible four weeks after the course of Profhilo®, which involves two injectable treatments approximately four weeks apart. Patients can expect to see an intense hydration with glowing skin and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
To achieve the best long-lasting results, you will need two treatments four years weeks apart. The treatment can be repeated after six months in cases where more repair is desired.

Facial Fillers and Profhilo are offered in all of our clinics
I have been coming for Botox and facial fillers for 16 years and I have never been disappointed. The clinic staff are always so professional and welcoming and I honestly would never dream of going anywhere else. Before coming to Woodford Medical I had been treated in another clinic but was never really happy. Now all my friends think I look really well and that’s exactly what I want.
I have been going to Woodford for 14 years for my facial fillers and Botox. I’m always really happy with the quality of their services - so much so that I have introduced numerous family and friends to the clinic.Their opinions are honest and accurate, they won’t try and up-sell procedures unnecessarily.
I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Highly recommended.
Fabulous service - responsive and efficient. I trust the Woodford injector team completely!
