    • Information
    • FAQ

    Injectable fillers are substances used in aesthetic medicine to treat the following conditions:

    * Volume loss such as sunken cheeks
    * Aged lips and smokers lines
    * Nasolabial folds
    * Marionette lines (lines at the corners of the mouth)
    * Temporal wasting
    * Correction of facial contour (correction of the shape of the chin and nose )
    * The appearance of indented hypotrophic scars and acne scars can be improved.
    * Hand rejuvenation

    Volume restoration provides a visible and natural face lifting effect and improves facial contour.

    Injectable fillers improve the skin’s texture and hydration levels, making it look more agile, smooth and healthy.

    We use –  first non- animal hyaluronic acid based aesthetic dermal filler CE and FDA approved product to enhance your looks and make you look good and feel great.

    What is Hyaluronic acid?

    Hyaluronic acid is a smooth gel like substance that is normally present in the human body. Hyaluronic acid is found in high concentrations in specific body locations: in bones and cartilage, tendons and ligaments, scalp tissue and hair follicles, in the lips and eyes, in gum tissue, and in the skin. When we are young, large amounts of HA are present in the deeper layer of the skin – the dermis. HA has a great capacity to bind water molecules – up to 1000 times its volume. The water binding capacity of HA largely contributes to skin volume and its good level of hydration.

    As a result of the normal ageing process, the amount of HA in the skin decreases over time, and that contributes to the overall loss of volume of the skin and appearance of lines, wrinkles and sagginess. Along with degradation of HA, skin also loses its water reservoir and becomes dehydrated and dull.

    Fortunately, modern aesthetic medicine can restore the HA supply in the skin due to the use of HA containing injectable fillers. HA fillers are made of synthetic Hyaluronic acid that is produced in different thickness/concentration and can be injected into the skin at different depths or in some cases under the skin depending on the conditions treated.

    Treatment with HA fillers is a fast and non–surgical alternative to facial and body rejuvenation with an immediate visual improvement in the appearance of the lines, folds and wrinkles and restoration of the lost volume in the treated area. Shortly after the treatment, clients can appreciate the improvement in skin hydration and texture (smooth skin, smaller pores), more radiant complexion. Injectable HA fillers have minimal or no downtime (i.e. healing time).

    About the Procedure:

    On average an appointment for injectable fillers takes between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of areas being treated. It starts with a consultation with the doctor, after-which a medical history is taken and a written informed consent is signed by the client. The procedure is well tolerated by most people.

    A topical anaesthetic is often applied to make the injections more comfortable. Some filler brands have a built-in 0.3% lidocaine to provide local anaesthesia. Based on the areas to be treated, additional injections of lidocaine may be administered for full local anaesthesia.

    To achieve the patient’s maximum satisfaction, fillers are often combined with other treatments . Your aesthetics doctor will advise you on the best course of treatment to suit your needs.


    48 hours prior to filler injections, it is advisable to refrain from alcohol, garlic, lidocaine and aspirin, or any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for pain, swelling and/or fever.

    Taking these precautions will significantly reduce the risk of bruising or bleeding at the point of injection.


    There is minimal recovery time. For the first 24 hours following the treatment please avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol consumption.

    It is advisable not to apply make up for 12 hours. Avoid extreme sun and/or heat exposure, UV light, freezing temperatures and saunas for 2 weeks after the treatment.

    Contraindications for injectable fillers: As a precaution, fillers cannot be injected during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

    Abnormal wound healing (predisposition to keloids)

    Allergy to HA: Patients with known allergy to local anaesthetics must avoid fillers containing lidocaine.

    Blood clotting disorders: Concurrent acute skin infection in the area of injection.
    The combination of HA fillers with certain drugs may reduce or inhibit liver metabolism, and is not advisable.

    Uncontrolled Epilepsy:

    The use of steroids may elevate the risk of developing infection at injection sites.

    HA fillers have been used in millions of patients for more than 10 years worldwide, with a very low incidence of side effects and are therefore considered as being very safe.


    Similar to skins, natural hyaluronic acid, HA fillers will slowly degrade. Depending on the thickness of the fillers, they generally last up to 36 months with just two maintenance treatments. Injectable fillers will last longer in younger patients, and in patients that lead a healthy lifestyle.

    As our body metabolises out the HA fillers, it simultaneously produces new collagen and elastin. Thus, fillers also have a long term rejuvenating effect on the skin.

    Because the fillers stimulate collagen synthesis, the patient will notice that a year later, when most fillers may be gone, the skin is in much better condition than initially, before the treatment.


    As described above, immediately after the treatment with injectable fillers, the appearance of lines, wrinkles and volume loss is visibly improved.

    During the next two weeks post procedure, the injected fillers absorb water and expand in volume thus; the maximum effect will be achieved in 3 weeks’ time.

    It is expected to have mild redness and swelling at the injection points, which usually subside within a few hours and is easy to camouflage with makeup.

    More sensitive areas of the face, like lips and the area under the eyes, may retain swelling for longer.

    In most patients, a follow–up appointment is scheduled 2 to 4 weeks from the initial treatment with the purpose to correct/optimise the results and extend the life span of the fillers.


    One of the most common side effects of injectable fillers, is bruising. It is temporary and usually clears within 4 to 14 days.

    To minimise chances of bruising, it is advisable to avoid alcohol, aspirin and other blood-thinning substances a week prior to filler injections.

    Allergic reactions to fillers may occur, but they are rare. If during the consultation the doctor suspects the possibility of an allergic reaction, a small test injection will be done first in the hidden area of the body.

    There are some very rare complications that have been described: abscess formation, granulomas (small bumps), discoloration at injection sites, and necrosis (tissue death).

    Should any painful hardening develop after filler injections it must be reported to your medical aesthetician as soon as possible.

    Amazing Clinic! Dr Fouzia Rizvi is a wonderful doctor and one of the most pleasant persons I met. She removed my... mother's skin tags and provided so much support and care, considering that my mum never had any surgeries (minor or major) and she was extremely nervous about having her skin tag removed. Dr Rizvi observed more than one skin tags that were to be removed and encouraged to have all of them removed for a more than reasonable cost. Everything was done in no time! We received clear advise of how to protect the sensitive skin for the following week post skin tags removal and now that this has been successfully completed, there is no sign of the tags being there! No complications, infections or etc etc. Highly reccomend this clinic especially because it offers a wide range of treatments and the staff there is super friendly! Everyone makes you feel cared and welcomed from the very beginning! 5 out 5 stars!!!! And thank you so much for the amazing service!🙏read more

    Had a non-pigmented mole removed from my face. Initially went for it to be shaved but discovered it was a bit deeper... and had a better blood supply than expected, so it had to be cut and stitched. Very pleased with the result. It's healed very well. The whole process was very efficient and professional and I would definitely use them more

    I found First Health Medical online when researching whether to go ahead with a scar excision of an old medusa... piercing. There are so many clinics out there which offer £££ for a simple procedure. I would definitely recommend going here as the price was so reasonable and the service was impeccable. Dr Rizvi was honestly so knowledgeable and lovely which made me feel so at ease throughout. She talked me through the whole thing and made sure I was happy. The results speak for them self - I have only been left with a small scar which is still early days and will fade over time. I have attached before and after pictures so you can see the difference. I already feel a lot more confident that I no longer have a visible hole on my face. I’m so glad I came here and would highly recommend to anyone who is wanting to repair old / unwanted piercings. Thank you again!read more

    Had Morpheus 8 with Dr Rizvi, which I would recommend very highly. Dr Rizvi is highly professional and extremely kind... and puts you at ease and explains the procedure. Skin tightening procedure which although a bit uncomfortable, very bearable and other than a bit of redness no other after effects. The results are fantastic, my skin is thicker and my jawline a lot firmer. I would recommend the clinic most more

    Dr Rizvi has been absolutely superb, very knowledgable, friendly and helpful. However the lady at the reception Justina... has been very unprofessional. I have paid the asked amount at the reception and after I left the surgery she phoned me to return back to the surgery and pay the remaining £25 as she undercharged me, she was saying it like I was suppose to know the correct amount. I wouldn’t expect this kind of service from a private surgery. Very more

    What can I say about Dr. Rizvi. I read some of her outstanding reviews before meeting her but having had a session to... remove a couple of moles I can tell you words cannot do her justice.She is obviously highly skilled but also creates such a warm and caring atmosphere. You feel completely looked after and you can tell this comes from a place of her wanting to use her talents to help people in the best way she can. She truly is an incredible woman and I can’t recommend her enough!read more

    What a wonderful caring sweet doctor. Professional and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and respected. I was given... clear honest answers when I had questions. For the first time ever I was looking forward to seeing a doctor for the second time for stitches removal. I would highly recommend first health medical. The staff are all so friendly and accommodating. I’m still in awe with the doctor, she was just such a lovely woman with positive and warm energy, I felt in safe hands when I was having minor surgery. I can not praise this centre enough!read more
