Dermal fillers are a soft clear gel made from hyaluronic acid (HA); a naturally occurring carbohydrate already in our skin. It is this that gives us a youthful look but with ageing HA depletes. However, a dermal filler that’s placed under the skin will add a natural looking volume. They are a very popular and safe treatment.
As we grow older we develop lines and lose facial volume. Dermal fillers reintroduce the hyaluronic acid back into the skin and by placing it under the wrinkle it instantly helps plumps it out, making it disappear or helps add volume to areas that need gentle but subtle lifting like cheeks. In addition, dermal fillers are used around the forehead and eyes where stubborn lines have formed which cannot be eliminated with Botox.

Treating wrinkles or volume loss with dermal fillers is fast and safe.
Dermal fillers stimulate natural collagen production too and are slowly and gradually broken down to water within the skin. They give excellent natural results, which usually last for at least six to twelve months and often considerably longer.
