At Well-Being we work in partnership with a qualified, medical facial aesthetic clinician, who addresses our clients’ concerns in respect of lines and wrinkles. Our clinician, Dr Deborah, works full-time in medical aesthetics and has undertaken regular clinics with ‘Well-Being for over four years.
A full, no obligation, free of charge consultation is available, with complete confidentiality always maintained. Each consultation begins with a medical history, then the potential benefits of available treatments are explained. Following consent from the client, treatment can commence.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers consist of a smooth cross-linked gel which is administered into the skin. This smooths out deep wrinkles, as well as to giving volume and lift whilst also improving skin condition.
Dermal filler treatment involves injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle to enhance facial features and plump and fill lines, grooves or sunken areas.
Treatments last up to 18 months.
What Are Tissue Conditioners (Profhilo)?
Profhilo is a stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid based product for treating skin laxity. With one of the highest concentrations of hyuronic acid on the market it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.
Profhilo is an injectable treatment made from high concentrations of hyaluronic acid. Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo is not cross linked and biodegrades over 28 days, releasing the hyaluronic acid over time.
It is the ultimate skin pick-me-up and perfect for anyone looking for skin that looks dewy, plumper and generally younger.
Profhilo is not permanent – lasting 9-12 months.
What Are Fat Dissolving Injections?
Also known as lipolytic injections fat dissolving agents destroy fat cells by damaging the fat cell membrane and liquifying the fat in the treatment area. The destroyed fat cells are then broken down and removed naturally through the body’s lymphatic system. Treatment, assuming no further weight gain occurs, is permanent.
Which areas can be treated?
- Double Chin
- Upper arms
- Inner side of the knee or Thigh
New Treatment Developments in Dermal Fillers
Dr Debbie is now offering three new-generation, deep-wrinkle and volume enhancing products.
Juvederm Voluma®, Volbella® and Volift® are made with new Vycross® technology, which results in a smooth gel that flows easily and consistently. More effective cross linking within the product produces results that last up to 18 months. The Vycross range is made of hyaluronic acid, a sugar which occurs naturally in the body.
Voluma has a lift capacity to correct volume loss in the cheek area caused by ageing.
Volbella gently restores natural looking lip volume and defines lip contours.
Volift smoothes deep wrinkles around the mouth area, resulting in natural looking contours in the lower face. Eye bags and dark circles can also be significantly reduced.
With recent advances in non-surgical procedures, is it now possible to perform an eight-point face lift using the Vycross Collection. The first three points are along the cheekbone and under the tear trough, point four is along the nasal-labial folds down from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth, point five is under the bottom lip, six and seven are along the jawline and finally number eight is at the front of the ear.
While Dr Debbie adheres to these points (or close to them), she chooses which to inject on a case-by-case basis, because ‘the way you use your muscles and the way your features are interrelated is unique to you.’
Cheekbones are lifted, hollows under the eyes diminished, lines from the nose-to-mouth reduced and there is a tweak upwards at the corners of mouth. Symmetry, which determines the appeal of a face to another’s eye, is created or restored. Essentially, it is a reversal of the pull of gravity because you get the perception of lift.
The latest technology in fillers means that results now last around 18 months and there are ongoing skin benefits.
All three products contain Novocaine to gently numb the skin for improved comfort during treatment causing hardly any swelling with an almost immediate result. There is research to suggest that the products, once in situ, repair skin under the folds, improving moisture levels, elasticity and skin condition.

Dr Deborah gained her degree in 2001 and in 2010 completed further training at a world-renowned training academy in London. Since then, over 8000 cases have been completed, across ten clinics, including clients in the public eye. A full, no obligation, free of charge consultation is available with Dr Deborah, with complete confidentiality always maintained.
Postgraduate Qualification – In February, Dr Deborah had her portfolio approved by a Manchester training institute to study for the new HEE and OFQUAL approved Level 7 qualification in Medical Injectable Aesthetics, when it is launched next year. Level 7 will be a postgraduate qualification and is offered to clinicians who will then be amongst the highest tier of the industry.
