Dermal fillers are used to temporarily restore volume loss, improve skin appearance and enhance facial contours. They can be used to recontour the cheeks, refresh lips, and sharpen the jawline to help harmonise the face and restore volume for natural-looking results.
Fillers used at Charlotte are composed of hyaluronic acid gel which is a substance naturally found in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid is abundant in skin and essential for our skin hydration. These fillers are fully reversible and are used to replace lost volume or enhance an area that you may feel is lacking in volume. During your consultation Charlotte will carefully assess your skin and facial structure so that together, we can work out the best treatments for you.

Profhilo® is an injectable skin treatment which produces a refreshed yet natural look, restoring skin lacking in lustre, volume and glow. Profhilo® is the perfect rejuvenating treatment to combat these signs of skin ageing. As we age, we lose collagen, fat and elastin in the skin, which results in the appearance of fine lines, loss of plumpness and a general dulling of the skin. Profhilo® is a full facial treatment that also acts as a ‘bio-remodeller’, stimulating new collagen and elastin production to plump and restore the skin. Primarily, Profhilo® is used to treat the face, but it can also be used to rejuvenate the neck, décolletage, hands, arms and even knees.
As an authorised Profhilo® practitioner, Charlotte recommends a course of at least two treatments to ensure the best results.
Procedure time: 30-60 minutes
Social Downtime: nil
Pain level: nil to moderate
Duration: 6 months
Costs: £325 each or £600 for two treatments, ideally 4 weeks apart.
Skin boosters act as a natural moisturiser for your skin. They are made of a soft gel-like substance, called hyaluronic acid. As the name suggests, they boost the skin’s natural action to improve its texture, quality and appearance. The result is natural glowing skin, and fine lines and wrinkles will also improve. Skin boosters can also be used to reduce the signs of acne and sun damage.
What are the benefits of skin boosters?
- These skin treatments are suitable for all skin types;
- Skin boosters are fast-acting and require little recovery time;
- Treatments can be staggered across multiple sessions to achieve the optimal result;
- Reduces the effects of ageing
