Dermal Fillers are used to replenish lost volume in the soft tissues or augment tissues to improve facial shape, contours or definition. At LTC we use Teosyal, a hyaluronic acid product which replaces your body’s natural hyaluronic acid. Teosyal is designed to support the skin in every move, while helping to preserve the vitality and softness of your face.

Such an incredible clinic, warm and welcoming atmosphere with personable and pleasant staff. Mary is the most helpful and has been available for advice in and out of appointments. She has been able to work with, and advise, my GP on what I need to help progress my transition; she is just an incredible person and I couldn’t wish for a better clinic to go to.
