We strive to bring injectables
What would you like to treat with fillers?
As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid and collagen in your skin decreases. These are substances that are very important in maintaining moisture levels and providing firmness to your skin. As a result, the skin becomes more dehydrated and less firm. Wrinkles and lines are formed more quickly. These get deeper with age and can give a fatigued facial expression. A treatment with fillers can combat these aspects and give you a more rested and youthful look.
Our bones slightly shrink, and we lose volume in our face as we age. This can change the facial structure and it causes the skin to sag. Using fillers to restore this lost volume, it is possible to restore the volume in specific areas of the face. Typically, volume fillers are injected into the cheeks and temples to help restore volume where fat pads are no longer present.
If you want to enhance your lips, nose or bring more definition to your jawline or cheeks, fillers are a great option. Contouring the face with fillers has become increasingly popular in recent years. Fillers can help you reshape your face without the need for surgery. The right filler should help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Treating the face with injectables can make your face look more defined, slimmer and younger.
What kind of treatment will suit me?
Skin boosters such as Profhilo are the perfect treatment suitable for patients suffering from poor skin texture, dehydration and uneven skin tone. This potent blend combines highly effective ingredients such as amino acids, anti oxidants and hyaluronic acids to plump, and restore the youthfulness to the skin – giving you a radiant appearance. Skin boosters do not ‘fill’ like a traditional filler, that adds volume or changes facial shape and contours.
Areas that can be treated with skin boosters like Profhilo include the face and also part of the body like the neck, hands and decollete.
From the age of 25, the collagen in our bodies decreases. A treatment with collagen injections like Radiesse filler has a double effect. It fills wrinkles temporarily, but also stimulates the production of collagen. New collagen is created over the weeks and months after treatment, making sagging skin tighter and more elastic. The collagen stimulating injectable immediately provides volume and stimulates the production of the body’s own collagen.
Areas that can be treated with collagen fillers like Radiesse include the face, neck, hands and cleavage.
HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS
If you are looking to define, volumize or contour your facial features, fillers based on hyaluronic acid are the perfect solution. Fillers like Juvéderm, contain hyaluronic acid. This is a body’s own substance that will provide your face with more firmness, adds volume and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, these fillers containing hyaluronic acid will hydrate the skin, leaving you with a healthy glow.
Areas that can be treated with hyaluronic acid like Juvéderm filler, are the cheekbones, corners of the mouth, lips, chin, tear trough, nasal labial fold, nose, jawline and your temples.

Our philosophy: The Natural Look
You will achieve a truly natural result by using the right filler, injected by skilled doctor with steady hands. At Essential Aesthetics, our philosophy is to offer you the best natural result. Our BIG-registered doctors respect your natural beauty and will therefor not change your whole face, but look for ways to enhance your own beautiful features. This means that our doctors are specialised in performing these procedures in in a way that will fit your face: natural lip filler, jaw filler, under eye filler, and so on.
Technology in the field of injectables has evolved. Juvéderm, the worldwide no. 1 filler brand, now uses a technology that integrates the filler with your facial tissue. This means that your face will still look natural and is able to make all the expressions of emotions we go through in life.
The fillers we use are based on hyaluronic acid or collagen, substances that are naturally present in our bodies, providing firmness and hydration to our skin. The substance will eventually gradually be broken down by the body.
What are fillers?
A filler is a gel-based substance consisting of hyaluronic acid or collagen, something we naturally have in our skin and joints. These substances improve the hydration and quality of the skin. When your skin is well hydrated, it looks smooth and firm. As we get older, the amount of hyaluronic acid and collagen produced by our body decreases. Therefore, our skin becomes more dry and less voluminous, leaving the facial structure to sag, wrinkle and fold.
The name “fillers” actually says it all; a filler temporarily fills (lost) volume. Fillers can smooth the skin, contour the jawline, and make the lips or cheekbones more voluminous. Fillers can hydrate and improve the skin quality, helping you slow down the aging process. Nowadays, the quality of Juvéderm fillers is improved and the new VYCROSS technology results in a natural appearance. The new fillers integrate with your own tissue, making the filler dynamic even when you smile, talk or frown.
Essential Aesthetics works with the following high-quality brands:
Fillers for anti-aging
Over the course of life, the skin on the face becomes thinner and looser. As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid and collagen in your skin also decreases. This is a substance that occurs naturally in your skin and is very important in maintaining moisture levels and providing firmness to the skin. Your body produces hyaluronic acid and collagen itself, but it also breaks it down as we get older.
As a result, the skin becomes more dehydrated and less plump. Wrinkles and lines are formed more quickly. Those lines are also called expression lines. These get deeper with age and can give an angry or fatigued facial expression.
Our injectables team can help with this by creating a personalised treatment plan. In some cases, more than 1ml is advised to achieve the desired result. Therefore, sometimes multiple treatments are needed to build up and achieve a good result. The doctor carefully injects the filler, creating more volume under the skin. A filler treatment can help with wrinkles, as well as re-lift the skin. The treated area will look and feel more hydrated after the treatment.
Optimise your results: combine treatments
In addition to a filler treatment, it is also recommended to treat the upper layer of skin. By taking care of the multiple layers of the skin, the effect of the filler will remain visible longer. This means that if you want to take care of every part and layer of the skin, we recommend to combine treatments. Skin boosters are an ideal option to enhance the quality and texture of the first layer of your skin. Collagen stimulators can generate more collagen from the inside out, improving your skins elasticity and firmness. By combining multiple treatments, you will be pleased by the utmost results.
Fillers for volume restoration
Due to our modern, busy way of life with high-stress levels, we increasingly suffer from unhealthy skin. Also, as we age, the bones slightly shrink, and we lose volume. This can change the structure of the face. This can cause the skin to sag and hang. With volume restoration, it is possible to slow down and remedy the effects our lives and time has on our skin.
Fillers help restore volume in specific areas of the face. Your skin is the most important foundation for your beauty because its condition tells a lot about your health. Depending on the product chosen, the filler is injected into the skin or just below the skin through several punctures with a fine needle. Some areas of the face are more sensitive than others.
Volume restoration is the perfect solution for:
- Deep wrinkles
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Deep marionette lines
- Lines around the mouth (smoking lips)
- Volume of the fat of the lips
Fillers for facial contouring
Do you want to enhance your lips, strengthen the contours of your jawline, cheekbones or other facial contours? Contouring the face with fillers has become increasingly popular in the past few years. Fillers can enhance the curves and shapes of your face by accentuating certain facial features. Natural-looking highlights and shadows are created on the face, which can make you look slimmer, younger and more defined. This can be seen as a non invasive ‘liquid’ correction.
The result of a treatment with fillers can last up to 6 months and even 2 years. This varies by region and filler.
You can opt for a treatment with dermal filler
- Natural lipfiller
- Under eye filler
- Cheek filler
- Cheekbone filler
- Jawline filler
- Chin filler
- Nose filler
Do you also want beautiful, healthy, full and hydrated lips that look natural? Then we recommend our hyaluronic acid based moisturizing lip fillers for naturally full lips. Especially with lip injections, we tend to see overly filled lips sometimes, which appears not natural. Our team will make sure you are in good hands and our doctor will do everything within his power to make your results look as natural as possible.
With lip fillers, ‘one size fits all’ does not apply. Every pair of lips and every facial structure is different.
Plumping the lips
If you seek for a more visible change with extra volume to increase the fullness of your lips.
Shaping the lips
If you are looking to enhance your lip shape and to add a bit of volume. To accentuate your lips natural curves.
Smoothing the lips
If you want to refresh the look of your lips, a subtle change is enough to improve the definition and smoothness of the lines in the lips.
One of the great advantages of this type of filler is that the effects last for a long time, but the lip augmentation is not permanent. This way you always have control over your appearance. In addition, the lipfiller is diluted a little bit with lidocaine, to make the treatment virtually painless. You can decide whether you want to build it up gradually, with 0.5 ml filler or go a bit faster by using 1 ml lip filler. Our BIG-registered doctor loves to give you his advise.
Under eye fillers
Fillers can also be used to treat dark circles, tear troughs or hollow areas around the under eyes. For this under eye filler treatment, Essential Aesthetics has partnered with Teosyal’s anti-aging award winner, the Redensity II filler, the only filler in the world specifically indicated for filling the tear troughs to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
This particular filler gives the tear trough under the eyes a little bit more volume, creating a fresh and energetic look again. It gives a perfect volume result and works in detail. The under eye filler, consisting of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, improves the skin condition and reduces dark circles under the eyes.
Teosyal Redensity II is a biodegradable, non-permanent filler based on naturally crosslinked and non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid combined with a firm derma complex. It is the ideal injectable for treatment under the eyes. This area is very delicate and has a difficult anatomy for an injectable. A filler with specific properties is what is needed to achieve the best results safely, without complications.
Pain-free method: Teosyal Pen
The Teosyal Pen enables the doctor to work with increased precision. The specialist can set the injection quantity and injection rate, according to the type of treatment and the treatment area. The gel is injected slowly, perfectly dosed and controlled thanks to the motorized system. As the injection is electronically controlled, the specialist is able to focus entirely on the placement of the gel, instead of on applying pressure as required with conventional manual syringes.
What are the advantages?
The easy operationality of the Teosyal Pen brings a number of advantages:
- Less pain, less swelling
- Faster recovery
- More natural results
- Better cosmetic results
- More comfortable treatment
- Less side-effects
The Teosyal Pen is designed to give constant and elegant injections that are virtually painless. In addition, there is less swelling after the treatment.
Patients reported 50% less pain intensity when compared with manual injections.
The Teosyal Pen can be used for all indications that would normally be treated manually.
Aftercare of filler treatment
After the injection, the filling effect is immediate. Sometimes a second treatment must take place after 4 – 6 weeks to achieve a better result which then lasts 12 – 24 months. Most people are satisfied with the result of the first treatment. To maintain a long-lasting effect, the doctor can repeat the treatment as soon as the effect begins to diminish or has disappeared.
- It is wise not to exert yourself physically for the first 24 hours after the treatment. You should also avoid strong muscle movements of the face as much as possible.
- Avoid overexposure to the sun for about 1 week, use the sauna and sunbed until the swelling and redness of the treated area have disappeared.
- Do not undergo any treatment by a beautician in the treated area for the first 2 weeks, such as peelings, connective tissue massages, facial scrubs, microdermabrasion, laser or other facial treatments.
- You may wash your face gently. Wait 4 hours to apply or make-up products.
- If you feel a thickening at the injection site in the days after treatment, you can massage it for a few days, a few times a day for a few minutes according to your doctor’s instructions, especially do not do this any longer as there is a chance that swelling and redness will occur!
- If you have had your lips treated, do not kiss or drink hot or cold beverages for the first 24 hours after the treatment.
- Blue spots can be treated with Arnica cream.
How long will the results last?
The duration of a filler depends on the brand. The hyaluronic acid filler brands we use at Essential Aesthetics, we are proud to work with, are Juvéderm, Belotero and Stylage.
Juvéderm lasts between 9-24 months
Belotero and Stylage last approximately 6 months.
After this period, the body starts breaking the filler down gradually.
To make the effect of filler last longer, you can combine the treatment with skin boosters and make sure you obtain a healthy lifestyle. We would love to guide you in this, since we offer multiple supplements to support your beauty and health from the inside out.
What if I do not like the results?
There is always a risk of you not liking the results. Perhaps you feel like a filler treatment might have been unsuitable for your face. In this case, you can either wait until the product is dissolved and broken down by your body naturally, or the filler can be dissolved by using Hyalase®.
Hyalase® is a filler that contains hyaluronidase, which is a solution that is used to break down the hyaluronic acid in the filler substance. It starts to work immediately after being injected in the desired area. The end result may take up to two weeks. Depending on the treated area, several Hyalase® treatments might be needed, as in some cases the Hyalase® cannot dissolve the entire filler in the area at once.
What are the risks of fillers?
- Hyaluronic acid is a natural product that also occurs in normal skin and it is completely biodegradable. The risk of allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid is very small because it does not contain animal proteins. There is always a small risk of more than average swelling and bruising, but these often disappear within one to two weeks.
- Usually, the treated skin is slightly swollen and red for a few hours after the treatment. These reactions are always mild and disappear spontaneously. To keep swelling to a minimum, the treated area can be cooled with cold compresses. To further reduce swelling, we recommend that you do not bend over too much during the first 2 days after the injections and keep your head upright as much as possible. During the night, you may simply rest your head on a pillow.
- A bruise (bruising) can sometimes appear in thin skin for a few days, which you can camouflage with make-up.
- If this does not help enough or if the pain increases, it is best to contact the clinic.
Please note that filler treatments are not performed on pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Your customised anti-ageing plan
In addition to your injectable treatment, it is also recommended to treat the other multidimensional layers of the skin. Our skin therapist works with the doctor to create a complete step-by-step plan. This ensures a long-lasting effect of the injectable.
There are different types of treatments available at Essential Aesthetics that each cover a different dimension of the skin. A skin care plan can be seen as a pyramid, as in which the foundation sets the base, and the layers above it are there to improve and compliment the complete picture.
The first step is improving your lifestyle. Our team will guide you with supplements, green detox juices and vitamin infusions to regenerate and boost your immune system. What is happening on the inside, is showing on the outside regardless of your effort to cover it. That is why body health is the first step in creating a healthier and improved look.
- Non-invasive treatments
The second layer of the pyramid stands for non-invasive beauty treatments. These are more traditional hands-on facials with the best selection of products for both professional and home use. We tailor each treatment on the client’s personal journey, which is an ongoing transformation. Lifestyle, sudden hormonal changes, health condition and stress levels can differ during each visit. We will adjust accordingly and customize the treatments and products, opting to be a personal trainer for your skin.
- Minimal invasive treatments
The third layer consists out of minimal invasive beauty treatments, helping the deeper layer of your skin to regenerate and most importantly: restore. When you find the products you are using at home useless, even the most expensive ones, this is the right moment to step into minimal invasive beauty treatments. These treatments create little wounds that the human eye cannot see, which forces the skin to produce new cells, stimulate the production of collagen and improve elastin in an efficient way. In addition, the best ampule cocktails designed and produced by the most experienced European laboratory, are used during these treatments. Skin problems like opening pores, dehydration, wrinkles, pigmentation, rosacea etc. can be largely improved by a series of consistent treatments.
- Invasive treatments
The fourth layer stands for the invasive treatments: injectables. As time passes by, our bones are degrading and the fat pads in our face disappear. As a result, you are witnessing sagging skin. Injectables can restore the volume according to your bone structure and also stimulate your collagen production. So you are benefitting skin improvement and a fresh look for the long term. When you are investing in injectables, we recommend you consider maintaining the results every four weeks with the beauty treatments to treat the remaining layers of your skin.
The fifth and final layer stands for face surgery. If you do not look on the outside the way you feel on the inside, you can opt for alternatives like surgery which deliver immediate and long-lasting results. Our plastic surgery department is committed to supporting your journey in realizing your transformation. However, even after surgery, your skin structure stays the same. To maintain good skin elasticity and good skin quality, we advise you to use the right products at home and take care of your skin with the right beauty treatments. You can start treating the skin 6 months post-up surgery.
