Prior to your dermal filler appointment, you will have a consultation during which a thorough facial assessment will be carried out., We will formulate a treatment plan in collaboration with you and discuss the treatment and what you can expect in detail. It is possible to administer filler injections during a single appointment and whilst there is minimal downtime, some mild bruising, swelling, redness, and temporary tenderness at the injection site is expected. We use a combined approach with needles and cannulas (blunt needles), which will all depend on the treatment protocol.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are non-permanent and will naturally break down over time. We require that all clients have separate consultation before undergoing dermal filler treatment. This allows you time to discuss the treatment in detail with your aesthetic doctor and to ensure you are happy with the plan.
Unfortunately not everyone will be a candidate for injectables. We do not recommend injectables for any pregnant or breastfeeding women. We cannot perform injectables where there is active infection at the injection site or systemically. We urge caution and recommend discussing your suitability in advance if you have any allergies, autoimmune or underlying medical conditions.
Please ensure that you are feeling fit & well on the day of your treatment. Treatment cannot be performed if you are feeling unwell or have had a recent illness including flu.
We do not recommend having any other skin, beauty or aesthetic treatments in the two weeks before a dermal filler appointment. Please ensure that you are feeling fit & well. Treatment cannot be performed if you are feeling unwell or have had a recent vaccine or illness including flu.
Dermal Filler treatments are generally very well tolerated but you need to be mindful that there are some common and uncommon risks associated. It is important that you understand each of these risks and weigh up whether you wish to have treatment and when is the most appropriate time for you to schedule your
treatment. Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising.
Rare side effects include viral or bacterial infections, oedema (swelling), nodules, cysts and Inflammation. The most serious complication that has been associated with dermal filler is blood vessel blockage: in very rare instances blood vessels can be blocked by hyaluronic acid. This is why we ask that clients be available to attend the clinic for up to two weeks after treatment in the unlikely event of needing an urgent review.
Our aim is for treatment to be as painless as possible and the majority of clients would describe the associated discomfort as mild-moderate. We have a range of options for numbing as required.
Generally treatment is very well tolerated but swelling, mild bruising, slight discomfort are expected. For the majority of patients the most obvious of these are resolved within 24-72 hours.
The ORA method is committed to enhancing natural beauty and we aim for noticeable but subtle results. We don't believe in any artificially inflated outcomes.
Results are seen immediately but improve as any post-treatment swelling and redness subsides. This generally can take 1-2 weeks.
The longevity of dermal fillers varies. The range is from approximately 6 -24 months depending on patient lifestyle factors, patient metabolism, area treated, product used, volume used.
How often you should repeat treatment varies depending on the treatment area and we generally recommend that clients target areas that require restoration rather than simply repeating treatments on a time schedule. By way of a guide, we would recommend 1-3 maintenance syringes per year to combat the deflation seen with ageing.

At ORA, the aim is not to look younger, but to look and feel good about yourself through every stage of life. We believe in positive ageing and the Ora Method is based on signature techniques inspired by the philosophy of restoration and preservation.
Preservation and respect of your natural inherent beauty coupled with the restoration and reversal of signs of ageing ensures natural and untouched results.
Our consultations set out the initial treatment journey. We view our patient relationships as a continuum and work together to help ensure your journey stays on track and that your goals are realised.
We are careful and artistic in the way we apply our treatments. We approach every client holistically and we don’t believe in results that are obvious. The ORA method leaves clients looking fresh, radiant, refreshed. We are the antithesis of frozen, puffy and overfilled results.
The ORA team is doctor led and all clients will meet with one of our aesthetic doctors at the start of their journey. There are four aesthetic doctors at ORA, each with an unrivalled commitment to the holistic approach we are known for and to achieving natural beautiful results. Each member of the team was invited to join ORA because of their level of expertise. We understand that a team of experts is stronger than its individual members alone. We are a truly collaborative team and believe that the best results are achieved by a multidisciplinary team approach., We often discuss treatment plans, share knowledge and treat our clients collaboratively. This means that our patients uniquely benefit from our combined knowledge and experience and we remain at the cutting edge of aesthetic medicine.
We have been lucky to build a loyal patient base largely developed through word of mouth and personal recommendations. We treat a range of people both women and men of all different ages. Whether it's the professional who wants to access innovate skin treatments with little downtime, the new mom who wants to give herself a selfcare boost, the bride/groom/mother of the bride with an important upcoming event, the busy mother/father squeezing in a moment between school drops, the post menopausal woman who wants to feel like herself again - we have looked after them all. The uniting sentiment between our Ora patients is the appreciation of our dedication to artistic, natural and beautiful results. Our clients return for our signature techniques that never leave them overdone, but rather, reveal their best selves.
