Fillers, or dermal fillers as they’re often referred to, are a range of products that help add volume and structure to the face. There are great for making subtle enhancements to the face without the need for more invasive surgery.
More advanced dermal fillers also contain Lidocaine, which means they also numb the treated area to ensure the most comfortable experience for patients.

At Adonia Medical, we offer a wide range of fillers that are expertly performed by Dr Ifeoma Ejikeme. She has a great deal of experience in performing all types of medical and skin treatments so you can be sure you’re in safe hands.
Am I a suitable candidate for dermal filler treatment?
Facial fillers are suitable for use on anyone who desires to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines or wants to add volume and structure to their face. Fillers can also be used to treat scarring that might have occurred as a result of acne. Although there is no known risk in using fillers for those who are pregnant or breast feeding, it would be still be advisable to wait before seeking treatment.
Who will perform the treatment?
We believe strongly that injectable treatments should only be carried out by qualified and experienced practitioners. This is why our treatments are carried out by Dr Ifeoma Ejikeme. She has seen countless patients over the years and carried out all types of skincare treatments, including dermal fillers.
What areas can be treated?
There are many areas that can be treated using fillers, including crow’s feet, frown lines, smoker’s lines, marionette lines, lips and cheeks. By using fillers, you can greatly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and get back a natural youthful-looking appearance.
A combination of dermal fillers and Botox can be used to treat sagging skin around the neck and jawline.
Is there any recovery time needed?
With injectable treatments, there may be some swelling and tenderness around the injection points for a couple of days but nothing that would prevent you from being able to go to work.
Will my face have a lumpy appearance after treatment?
No, at Adonia medical we carefully place filler to prevent such complications. With all dermal filler treatments we offer a skin review after a few weeks, we will invite you back to the clinic to make minor adjustments if they’re needed giving you natural-looking results and always peace of mind.
Will people be able to tell that I’ve had work done?
In most cases, no, they will not. That is – they might notice that you look better but won’t assume that you’ve had any kind of treatment because the results will be very natural-looking. We know that most patients would like their work to be subtle and not something that will cause people to be shocked at their appearance. This is why we always take a ‘less is more’ approach with our injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing treatment.
