Dermal Fillers are increasingly becoming more popular as a way to fight the signs of aging. Has the skin on your face lost its firmness and fullness? Do you have deep wrinkles or a facial scar? If so, a dermal filler treatment may be the solution. It is the perfect way to correct some imperfections without having plastic surgery. This is achieved by replacing the lost hyaluronic acid and collagen that deteriorates over the years.
Dermal Fillers use a natural gel to smooth out wrinkles, folds, scars, or blemishes to give your face a younger, refreshed, and more plumped appearance. Some dermal fillers are made from a clear gel composed of a substance that is naturally found in skin; the difference between these fillers is their thickness, viscosity, and how long the results will last. The finer and smoother ones tend to not last as long, whilst the thicker fillers last a lot longer.
Lip Fillers | Lip Enhancement
These are the areas of the lip that we can enhance for you:
The fleshy part of the upper and lower lips – offering volume, fullness, and a beautiful pout.
Philtrum ridges: These are the vertical grooves between the nose and upper lip.
Perioral Lines: These lines appear on the upper lip and are usually associated with smoking.
Finer dermal fillers are used in the upper lip, where the skin is fine. These dermal fillers are very fine and can be placed superficially in the skin without causing lumps.
Cheek fillers have the power to rejuvenate the skin and help make you look younger, more refreshed, and elegant. It’s a procedure that gives more definition to the cheekbones and restores volume to tired-looking skin. This loss of volume can occur due to age, genetics, and sun exposure. Men tend to benefit greatly from this treatment as it focuses on the three main sections of the cheek that help to maintain a masculine look to the jawline.
The thicker dermal fillers are used for the re-volumization of bulky areas such as the cheeks, or jawline. They are typically injected deeper than the finer fillers.
We only use high-quality dermal fillers that are approved by the Irish Medicine Board. Full details of all our treatment options are provided below.
Tear Troughs & Dark Circles
A deep tear trough can create a shadow that is perceived as a dark circle below the eye. It also creates a division between the lower eyelid and cheek that is an early sign of aging around the eyes.
It usually only takes 30 minutes to administer a 1ML syringe. Depending on how deep your tear troughs are, you may need more than 1 treatment. Dr. Bratu will advise you of this during your consultation.
Popular Product Choice: Teosyal Redensity II
Win the battle against Tired Eyes
The skin under your eyes is some of the thinnest on your body. Dr. Natalia Bratu is highly skilled in this field so she takes special care in selecting the most appropriate hyaluronic acid filler.
At Refine Clinic, we use the Teosyal Redensity II Filler, which has been specifically designed to treat this delicate area. It neutralizes the darkness below the eye and brightens up your appearance. It is a softer product, perfect for young men/women or patients who do not have deep grooves under the eye area but still would like to reduce the look of dark circles. You will be amazed at how refreshed and less tired you look immediately after treatment.
Come in on your lunch break and you’ll be transformed when you’re leaving.
THE EFFECT IS A NATURAL, IMMEDIATE AND LASTING RESULT:
Under-eye circles evenly corrected.
Hydrated, younger-looking skin.
Long-lasting global satisfaction, proven over 12 months.
After the eye area, the décolletage is the part of our body most prone to aging. It is far more delicate than our facial complexion because it doesn’t produce as much oil as the rest of our skin and is often the first to develop wrinkles. This area, like the expressive muscles in our face, has a lot of skin stresses placed upon it from movement, weight, and exposure to sunlight. Treatment with dermal fillers for the décolletage doesn’t just add subtle volume. It can hydrate far deeper into the skin than topical moisturizers can and works to fill the folds from within. It can also rejuvenate skin quality and revitalize skin tone to combat the visible appearance of the sun’s damage.
Many men and women are concerned about the shape of their nose, it’s normal. At Refine Clinic, we can alter the shape of the nose without drastic surgery or Rhinoplasty. Using a premium dermal filler, Radiesse 1.5ML, Dr. Bratu can alter the shape and subtly enhance and straighten the nose. It’s not unusual to think that a dermal filler would make your nose look bigger. However, this is not the case at all. The dermal filler just makes the nose more symmetrical, aligns contours, and eliminates deep grooves. By adding this filler in the dip of the nose Dr. Bratu can even out the shape.
This revolutionary NEW treatment rivals dermal fillers and takes just 10 minutes, with 5 injection points into your area of concern. Particularly great for people wanting to combat aging, dull or tired-looking skin, and loss of facial volume! In younger patients, it will have more of a preventive effect.
We start losing a significant amount of collagen, elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid after we reach 30. At this age, we should start to consider preserving ourselves. This is the time when many people would consider their first toxin injections as the first lines start to appear. In some, the tissue quality has dropped so significantly that they may look older for their age; however, they may not be ready for dermal fillers yet.

Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lifting and firming effect on the skin. Once injected, Radiesse® directly provides volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of ageing because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. Both the gel and the microspheres are completely broken down by the body over time.
Radiesse® – The Collagen Stimulator
In addition to an immediate filling effect, the high-quality ingredients of Radiesse® stimulate the skin’s natural collagen synthesis. Thanks to the collagen-inducing effect of Radiesse®, the skin regains its youthful tightness and elasticity – your natural beauty blooms again.

Emervel Touch is used to treat superficial lines, such as perioral wrinkles, which can appear around the mouth and lips, often as a result of long-term smoking or sun damage.

I have never had Dermal Filler treatment before and I am apprehensive.
That is no problem at all. Dr Natalia will take her time with you. She will go through the treatment and do her absolute best to reassure you. If at any point you decide not to have treatment that is also no problem.
Before your treatment, a cool gel pack can be held to the skin to numb the area. Numbing cream is available also but is rarely used as the injections are so quick, like a little pinch. Some patients who bruise easily may find that they may have a slight small bruise e.g. near the sensitive eye area, post-treatment.
Arnica cream is a fantastic healer for bruises and speeds up the recovery time for any bruising. Taking Arnica pillules before and after your treatment can also speed up the recovery time for bruising. These can be found in homeopathy and health food stores.
Some people may have a fear of needles but still would like treatment. If you make us aware of this we can be mindful and look after you.
What is the difference between Dermal Fillers and Anti-Wrinkle Treatments?
Dermal fillers are very different to anti-wrinkle treatment. Dermal fillers, such as Restylane are most frequently used to ‘fill’ facial lines, wrinkles and folds (known as static wrinkles) or add volume deep into the skin to enhance facial contours (e.g cheeks) and features such as the lips.
Anti-wrinkle treatments using botulinum toxin type-A work differently by temporarily relaxing muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles occur as a result of facial movement rather than loss of volume in the skin and botulinum toxin type-A has gained wide acceptance as a method of treating this type of wrinkle.
The aesthetic license in common for all commercially available botulinum toxin type-A world wide is for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines seen at frown (frown lines) in adult patients.
However, the use of botulinum toxin type-A has expanded over the years with wide acceptance among aesthetic healthcare practitioners to use it to treat other areas of the face, although not formally licensed.
Can I have dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections performed in the same appointment?
Absolutely! Dr Natalia may combine a variety of non surgical cosmetic procedures over the course of a treatment plan to help you achieve the youthful look you would like to achieve. This gradual process will result in a more subtle change to your appearance and progressively gives you a younger, fresher appearance. Also a combination of both botulinum toxin and dermal fillers such as Restylane or Belotero to treat very deep frown lines, where the line has been etched into the skin over the years, has been proven to be more effective in achieving that smooth glabellar area between the eyebrows compared to exclusively treating with botulinum toxin Type A.
How it works: the botulinum toxin is used to stop the lines forming and dermal filler can be used to lift the line out and smooth the skin.
