Dermal Fillers in Cyprus

Facial fillers is a non-surgical solution to aging. They restore volume loss, smoothen skin wrinkles, enhance the soft tissues and rejuvenate the whole face.

Dr. Stavrou offers high-quality treatment with dermal fillers in Nicosia Cyprus, Limassol Cyprus, Athens Greece, and Sliema Malta.

What Are Injectable Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers, or wrinkle fillers, are gel-like, soft substances that consist of hyaluronic acid. This molecule exists naturally in our body, and nearly 50% of it is found in the skin.

As we age, hyaluronic acid production in the human skin decreases, leading to loss of skin elasticity. This loss causes the epidermis to become thinner, making smile lines, crow’s feet, brow furrows, and frown lines more apparent.

The hyaluronic acid in dermal fillers comes to replenish the skin’s hyaluronic loss that occurs naturally in our face when we grow older. As a result, dermal fillers can add volume, soften facial wrinkles and creases, enhance the face’s contours and restore patients’ youthful appearance.

In addition to rejuvenating the face and delaying the need for plastic surgery, dermal fillers can also enhance the result of previous cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift. All in all, the use of dermal fillers is a highly effective and painless way to look younger without plastic surgery!

Dermal fillers are ideal for smoothing out wrinkles in the following areas:

  • Nasolabial folds (between the upper lip and nasal vestibule)
  • Marionette lines below the mouth corners
  • Tear trough deformity in the cheek-lower eyelid junction
  • Temporal area (at sides of the head)
  • Around the eyes

The results are temporary and usually last up to a year. However, they may last even more in some cases, depending on the type of filler used. No special treatment is needed after the procedure other than regular skincare.

Which Facial Areas Can Dermal Fillers Treat?

  • Forehead lines
  • Brow Lines
  • Under the Eyes
  • Bunny Lines
  • Nose
  • Cheeks 
  • Lips
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Marionette Lines
  • Jawline
  • Chin

What Is Hyaluronic Acid In The Skin?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance found in every tissue of the human body, but the highest concentration of it (almost 50%) is present in the face’s skin. Hyaluronic supports the formation and maintenance of collagen, with these two substances having a significantly positive impact on the face’s appearance.

Hyaluronic acid helps skin cells be healthy and survive longer. It makes the epidermis thicker, prevents the buildup of dead skin and protects the face from free radicals generated by UV exposure. It also enhances skin moisture, firmness and smoothness.

Today, HA is safely produced in the laboratory to create dermal fillers that help men and women maintain a fresh and beautiful look.

What our patients say!

Rhinoplasty. Dr. Stavrou did an excellent job with my nose, the results are incredible, as good as the ones he has posted on his social pages. I had no pain after the surgery, no complications, everything went smoothly. The recovery was very fast, like 3 weeks. Dr. Stavrou was very kind and professional, I felt very comfortable with him and his team. I trusted him since the first meeting. I highly recommend him to everyone.

Edit: I thought I'd add to my review after 1+ year post operation! I got my nose done by Dr Stavrou 27 months ago. The results are beyond excellent and I couldn't ask for better service from the doctor and the team! For anyone who's wondering, almost all of the swelling and bruising was gone after 2 weeks and my nose currently looks like it did about a month after the operation. I highly recommend him!! Old review: Today is the 10th day after my rhinoplasty with Dr Stavrou. Dr Stavrou operated on me following a functional rhinoplasty performed by my otolaryngologist. It was a painless experience and the results have exceeded my expectations! It hasn't affected my daily activities apart from the fact that I was not allowed to work out excessively. The swelling and bruising has almost disappeared completely. The results are excellent and I finally have a nose that complements my face. Not to mention the entire team was very helpful! Thank you so much Dr Stavrou!

Η περίπτωση μου ήταν λιγότερο συχνή και διαφορετική από αυτές που ακούμε στην καθημερινότητά μας. Μεγάλες αυξομειώσεις βάρους (40-50 κιλά) μετά από δύο βαριατρικές επεμβάσεις για αντιμετώπιση της νοσογόνου παχυσαρκίας, με αποτέλεσμα την υπερβολική χαλάρωση του δέρματος σε πολλά σημεία του σώματος. Είχα την τύχη να ακούσω για το Δρ. Σταύρου από φιλικά άτομα, και όταν αποφάσισα να επισκεφτώ πλαστικό χειρούργο ήταν ο πρώτος που πήγα και εκεί άκουσα και έμαθα για το body contouring. Ακολούθησαν πολλά ραντεβού, άπειρες ερωτήσεις, απορίες και φόβος από την πλευρά μου. Όλες οι απαντήσεις του Δρ. Σταύρου άμεσες και ειλικρινείς, ακόμα και αυτές που δε μιλούσαν για βελτίωση όπως ήθελα να ακούσω! Καμιά απάντηση δε δόθηκε απλά για να μου «χαϊδέψει» τα αυτιά. Ο ίδιος με παρότρυνε να επισκεφτώ και άλλους πλαστικούς για να ακούσω και άλλες γνώμες. Τελικά, ήταν ο μόνος που με έπεισε, ο μόνος που μπορούσε να καθησυχάσει το φόβο, το άγχος και την αγωνία μου και ο μόνος που είχε απάντηση σε ότι τον ρωτούσα και έτσι ακολούθησα το ένστικτό μου και επέλεξα τον Δρ. Σταύρου για να προχωρήσουμε μαζί σε όλο αυτό που αποφάσισα να κάνω. Ήξερα από την αρχή ότι τα χειρουργεία θα ήταν πολύωρα και αυτό με φόβιζε περισσότερο αλλά ο γιατρός ήταν εκείνος που με την ηρεμία του με καθησύχαζε. Σε περίοδο έξι μηνών υποβλήθηκα σε δύο πολύωρα χειρουργεία. Η μετεγχειρητική μου πορεία και στις δύο επεμβάσεις ήταν η καλύτερη δυνατή και η ανάρρωση πολύ πιο εύκολη από όσο περίμενα και από όσο προετοιμάστηκα ψυχολογικά να αντέξω. Όλα όσα μου είπε ο Δρ. Σταύρου για τη μετεγχειρητική πορεία, τον πόνο και την ταλαιπωρία, δεν ειπώθηκαν απλά για να με «παρηγορήσουν» να μη φοβάμαι και να μην ανησυχώ. Ήταν όλα ειλικρινή και αντικειμενικά. Όπως ακριβώς μου τα περιέγραψε, έτσι ακριβώς έγιναν. Ακόμα και στα θέματα που αφορούσαν τη ψυχολογία μου ο γιατρός ήταν εκείνος που ήρεμος, μετρημένος και χαμογελαστός με καθησύχαζε. Γιατί όταν ένα άτομο μπαίνει στη διαδικασία να αρχίσει κάτι τόσο σημαντικό, δε μετράει μόνο το να είσαι άψογος σαν επαγγελματίας απέναντί του, αλλά και το να γνωρίζεις τη ψυχολογία του ασθενή σου ανάλογα με την κάθε περίπτωση και ο Δρ. Σταύρου κατέχει την πρώτη θέση και στα δύο!! Αισθάνομαι τυχερή που επέλεξα να εμπιστευτώ στα χέρια του γιατρού Δρ. Σταύρου την αποκατάσταση του σώματός μου και που ο φόβος δεν με απέτρεψε από το να αποφασίσω να κάνω όλα όσα η περίπτωσή μου απαιτούσε, ώστε να έχω το καλύτερο δυνατό αποτέλεσμα. Θα ήταν άδικο αν ο φόβος και η ανησυχία για τα πολύωρα χειρουργεία, τον πόνο και την ανάρρωση δε με άφηναν να έχω κάτι καλύτερο. Γιατρέ μου σε ευχαριστώ για όλα! Συνέχισε το λειτούργημα που κάνεις με τον ίδιο ακριβώς τρόπο που το κάνεις γιατί είναι σπάνια και μεγάλη αρετή να έχεις την ικανότητα και τη δύναμη να χαρίζεις τόσα πολλά χαμόγελα στους ανθρώπους!

What Does Dermal Fillers Injection Involve?

Step 1: Pre-injection Stage

Dr Stavrou’s specially-trained medical staff cleans the patient’s skin thoroughly with an antibacterial agent and applies local anesthetic cream to numb the area of interest. Many dermal fillers include a mild anesthetic called lidocaine, which helps minimize discomfort during and after treatment.

Step 2: Dermal Filler Injection

Dr Stavrou uses disposable, fine needles (syringes) with blunt microcannulas to insert tiny amounts of dermal filler into the patient’s face, beneath the epidermis. The injection process takes just a few seconds per site of treatment. After the injection is complete, the doctor performs a light massage on the treated areas and evaluates the result. Additional filler may be added if needed.

The dermal filler injection duration depends on the number of areas to be treated. It might last from 15 minutes up to an hour.

Step 3: Clean Up, Recovery & Results

The medical staff cleanses the treated area and offers the patient an ice pack to reduce potential swelling and bruising and alleviate discomfort. Patients can resume their everyday activities, and even return to work immediately after the procedure. Skin improvement will be noticeable on the same day or a few days later.

Sometimes, one treatment is not enough for patients to achieve the desired results. Depending on how your skin reacts to the fillers, you may need an additional treatment sooner than one year after the first injection.

FAQs for Facial Dermal Fillers

What is the best dermal filler?

There are several types of facial fillers available, but patients should trust only those approved by the FDA.

The most popular dermal fillers are:

  • Hyaluronic acid – Juvederm Filler
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite – Radiesse Filler
  • Polylactic acid – Sculptra Filler
  • Polyalkylimide – Aquamid Filler
  • Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres (PMMA) – Bellafill Filler

Are face fillers safe?

Dermal fillers’ injection is totally safe when performed by a licensed and trusted doctor who has experience in cosmetic procedures and uses FDA-approved products.

Request and read the patient labeling information on the dermal fillers your doctor has chosen for you. Do not buy fillers sold directly to the public from online websites or physical shops. You can buy FDA-approved fillers only with a prescription. Do not inject yourself with dermal fillers or use fillers for body contouring.

Dermal fillers are safe and effective only in the right hands.

How long does dermal fillers in face last?

The results of dermal fillers are temporary and may last up to a year, or even more in some cases. This depends on the area of treatment, the product used and the patient’s health condition.

The denser the product and the deeper it is injected, the longer the dermal filler results will last. However, that is not always the case.

Patients who want to maintain their youthful and fresh appearance can ask their plastic surgeon to repeat the treatment when needed.

A more permanent option for a fuller look is fat injections.

Can fillers permanently change your face?

FDA-approved dermal fillers are absorbable and offer temporary results, thus they cannot change your face permanently.

For permanent results, consult your doctor about fat injections and plastic surgery, such as brow lift, necklift o facelift.

Which is better: toxins or fillers?

Toxins and dermal fillers are equally used to rejuvenate patients’ look by smoothing out the wrinkles, particularly on the face. Both treatments are injected into the skin by specialized cosmetic surgeons and the results can last up to a year.

Toxins are primarily used to treat dynamic wrinkles that occur naturally between the eyebrows, around the eyes and the mouth. Toxins relaxes the muscles near the wrinkles and reduces their movement. It is not used for fine lines caused by collagen breakdown. The results will be more noticeable within a couple of weeks.

On the other hand, dermal fillers promote collagen production and restore lost volume in different face and body areas. The results are immediately available.

Dr Stavrou will examine your individual situation, skin condition and expectations, and advise you on which of the two options is more suitable for your unique case.

How long do dermal fillers last?

The longevity of dermal fillers can vary depending on the type of filler used, the area of the face or body where it’s injected, and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle. In general, most dermal fillers are temporary and not permanent solutions. It’s important to note that individual experiences may vary; some people may metabolize fillers faster or slower than others. Additionally, lifestyle factors, such as sun exposure, smoking, and skincare routine, can influence how long the results of dermal fillers last.

Are dermal fillers permanent?

No, most dermal fillers are not permanent. The majority of dermal fillers used in cosmetic procedures are temporary and designed to provide temporary improvements to the treated areas. The duration of the effects varies depending on the type of filler used, the area of the face or body treated, and individual factors, such as metabolism and lifestyle. The substances used are gradually absorbed by the body over time, which means the effects of the filler will gradually diminish, and retreatment will be necessary to maintain the desired results.

Are dermal fillers instant?

Yes, dermal fillers typically provide instant results. When the filler is injected into the targeted areas, you’ll notice an immediate improvement in volume, contour, and overall appearance. However, it’s important to note that there may be some initial swelling or redness at the injection sites immediately after the procedure, which can temporarily obscure the full results. This post-injection swelling usually subsides within a few days, revealing the final outcome of the treatment.


Keep in mind that while dermal fillers are instant, the appearance of the treated area can continue to improve subtly over the following days as the filler settles and integrates with the surrounding tissues.

How to sleep after dermal fillers?

After getting dermal fillers, it’s best to sleep on your back for the first night to reduce pressure on the treated areas. Use an extra pillow to elevate your head slightly and minimize swelling. Avoid touching your face and be gentle with skincare products. Keep your face clean before bed and consider using cold compresses if there’s any discomfort. Avoid alcohol and blood-thinning medications for 24 hours after the procedure. Follow our post-procedure guidelines for a smooth recovery and optimal results.
