Dermal fillers are used to treat a variety of conditions and concerns related to aging. Treatment involves creating a more youthful look. Dermal fillers are also used to enhance facial features. All dermal fillers offered at Hardwick Clinic are non-permanent and are broken down naturally in the body over time. To provide the best possible results for all of our patients, we use a variety of different dermal fillers, choosing the most suitable for you.
This is the most commonly used dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin and is responsible for attracting water. HA filler is used to reduce appearance of both fine and deep lines, replace lost facial volume and to create structure and shape. HA dermal filler can be safely used around the eyes, neck, hands or many other parts of the body. The effects are immediate, and it can be completely dissolved if needed. Results last between 6-12 months.
This works in 2 stages. The gel part of the filler provides an immediate “filling effect” while PCL particles stimulate collagen production over the course of a few months. Overall, this type of filler is great for ageing skin and for those looking to achieve more natural results. PCL is not suitable for the under-eye area, lips or the nose. Results are instant but further develop over the course of 12 weeks. Overall, final results last for up to 18 months.
This type of filler has been widely used since the 1980s. It is injected under the skin to stimulate production of collagen and to restore the lost volume in all facial areas except around the eyes and lips. It is famous for its rejuvenative properties for the neck and decolette area.
Lanluma is a fully licensed body filler which successfully treats stretched or lax skin on the upper arms, abdomen, thigh or other areas. Lanluma is also used as a volume enhancing filler for the body for treating areas of the buttocks to achieve better shape or to reduce a “hip dip”. In addition, Lanluma is an exceptionally good treatment for cellulitis.
PLLA dermal filler treatment results are not instant and may require 6 -12 weeks to fully develop. Two treatment sessions may be required. Results last for up to 2 years.
This dermal filler is known to provide very natural antiaging results and is especially good for the hands and neck. It works in two stages. First, upon injection the gel in which CaHA particles are suspended provides an initial “filling” effect. Then CaHA particles which integrate into the skin start to initiate the stimulation of collagen production and regeneration of skin which provides a further rejuvenative effect. This produces immediate effects which further improve over time. The results last for up to 18 months.
Sadly, we have many clients who have come to us with unsatisfactory results from other clinics. We are able to offer a procedure that allows for hyaluronic acid based fillers to be dissolved. Any area of the body can be treated, full reversal is usually achieved within 48hrs of hyaluronidase treatment. This procedure is both safe and effective. The Hyaluronidase enzyme will break down the filler which will then be slowly and naturally cleared from the body.
Although there is limited evidence and only a very small number of cases, there is a risk of inflammatory reactions and soft tissue swelling in patients who have previously had soft tissue fillers, or plan to have treatment, after receiving COVID-19 vaccination.
Do not undergo soft tissue filler procedures within 2 weeks of your planned vaccination date or within 3 weeks having received it.
Do not attend for treatment if you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or are suffering from ongoing symptoms from previous infection.
If you develop any reactions following your treatment, it is imperative you contact your healthcare practitioner at the earliest opportunity. If you develop any reactions following your treatment, you may require medication to manage the complication. This may include oral steroid medication which may lower your immunity to COVID-19 if you have recently been vaccinated.

I have had a number facial treatments at the clinic. All of them have been excellent and I have never been disappointed with the results. I use the clinic because they only use medically trained staff to deliver the treatments. My last treatment was microneedling which was performed by Clare, a highly trained nurse. It was quick, painless, professionally carried out and has genuinely given me some great results. It goes without saying that medically trained professionals keep the clinic scrupulously clean. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Great service and good value for money.
can highly recommend this clinic with no doubt. I am very pleased with the results, my skin looks better, younger and refreshed.
A very big thank you to Dr Tatyana 😊👍 and definitely will see you again! …
I heard a lot about this clinic before I came and I was not disappointed. Incredibly high standard of professionalism. The place is welcoming and immaculate. The doctor explained all my options with great patience and care with regards my individual needs and personality. The nurse was lovely. The atmosphere was calm and supportive. I had the forma inmode treatment which is the gentlest one. After two days my face is fresh and rejuvenated. I will definitely be coming back again to try other treatments too.
Dr Lapa-Enright understands how to achieve the results I want every time. She has provided my treatments for several years and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!
I visited Dr Lapa-Enright for a course of skin boosters and am amazed by the results. The whole experience was wonderful. I have anxiety, yet was immediately put as ease by her warm, friendly persona and highly professional attitude. All my friends have noticed how much fresher I look and now want the treatment themselves! Highly recommended!
I can’t recommend Dr Lapa-Enright highly enough. I first visited her over a year ago for a free consultation, and was immediately put at ease. As well as being amazing at what she does, I also love how she never tries to ‘upsell’ you or push other treatments.
As other reviews have mentioned this clinic is highly professional and completely patient led. I’m so happy I found it and would highly recommend going for a free consultation so you can see for yourself.
I have visited the Hardwick clinic several times over the last few years and had treatments with both Dr Enright and Dr Lapa. They are experts at what they do, have set very high standards for their business, and yet the atmosphere always relaxed and friendly. They can be trusted to tell you the truth, and I believe that they really do care about their clients.
Dr Lapa-Enright has performed wonders. I’m 53 and definitely look fresh faced for my age. I’ve used a range of treatments, designed to work in harmony and I couldn’t be happier with the results
I highly recommend Hardwick Clinic and Dr Lapa-Enright.
