"Facial balance and harmony are key"
In recent years facial aesthetic treatments have gone beyond filling lines. We now appreciate the cause and effects of ageing, so rather than looking solely at small areas in the mirror, we need to appreciate the whole face from different dimensions.

Understanding how and why we are ageing are critical for best results. By using photographic assessment, we can start to understand this better, in order to restore facial balance.
We want to restore volume where it is needed, but to also develop a treatment plan that respects facial profile, understanding that volume loss and migration are important causes of ageing. Essentially, this leads to heaviness in the lower face, so focusing our attention on the structure of the cheek and midface starts the lifting process, and accentuates the artistic beauty of the face. We can then focus on contouring the jawline, chin, nose and lips to create the best profile version of yourself.
There are a range of different dermal fillers available, depending on the depth of wrinkles, lifting and contouring required. After a careful and detailed facial analysis, a bespoke treatment plan will be made for you by our expert Doctor, who will support and offer advice throughout.
Watch the video below to appreciate the changes we can expect to see through different decades. We can start to get ahead of this process by addressing the areas of change at the correct time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Juvederm® Vycross range / Belotero range
At London City Skin Clinic, we only choose safe regulated products that have been stringently tested and approved. Depending on the area to be treated and the degree of lift or contouring needed, we choose the correct volumiser that will contour the face to restore volume to the cheeks, jawline and chin areas, that become particularly affected by weight loss or age-related changes...
Using unique techniques with dermal filler which are injected into the deeper layers and fat pads of the skin, we are able to achieve a lifting effect, restoring facial volume and proportion. This makes it ideal for deeper wrinkles and for augmentation of larger areas of the face. The application of filler also stimulates the deep muscle layer, which in turn causes further lift, a phenomenon called “myo modulation”.
The result is a combination of lifting and contouring that goes beyond filling lines, and restores natural beauty.
You will notice effects soon after the treatment, although it will take 2 weeks for the products to settle. Treatment can be done in one session, or split into different sessions depending on how much treatment you wish to do to improve profile. We always believe you should be comfortable doing treatment in stages on your aesthetics journey.
We use non-permanent filler, and therefore are not associated with the problems of permanent fillers.
Facial contouring and profile is a specialised treatment, requiring an extensive knowledge of facial anatomy to ensure safe administration with excellent results. Dr Robby Bajaj has over 12 years of experience and is a trainer in this field.
Dermal Fillers are minimally invasive, requiring minimal downtime. Extensive treatment may cause more swelling, so it may be advisable to avoid social events or client facing roles for a few days.
