Dermal Fillers 

The plump appearance of healthy skin is due to hyaluronic acid. Babies feel so nice because their skin is full of hyaluronic acid. As you age, levels of natural hyaluronic acid in the skin decrease with time, sun exposure and lifestyle. The result is the appearance of lines, furrows and wrinkles. Dermal fillers such  can correct wrinkles, improve lip definition, and address the signs of ageing from the inside out. 

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

  • No allergy testing necessary
  • Natural, long lasting but not permanent
  • Restores volume and fullness instantly
  • Smoothes wrinkles and folds
  • Provides luscious lips

How it Works

All young skin has one thing in common: hyaluronic acid. Found in all skin tissue and identical from species to species, this building block of sorts fills out the space between collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, holding in water and maintaining the skin’s volume. With age, levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin decrease so we end up with furrows, wrinkles and often thinner lips. By injecting dermal filler into the skin the depressions in the skin are filled and the appearance is considerably softer and the wrinkle may be eliminated.

Dermal fillers are  injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultra fine needle. A local anesthetic block can also be administered. Furthermore if the patient does not like the result, Dermal Fillers can be dissolved with a natural enzyme within hours- the skin will return to its former state as it appeared before the injection.
