Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers help to restore volume and redefine the natural curves of the face. With skilful application, you’ll look fresher and more radiant.  As we age our faces lengthen, we start to look more mature and volume loss of facial muscle, fat and tissue naturally occurs.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are smooth injectable gels made from synthesised hyaluronic acid (HA), a complex sugar substance that occurs naturally in the skin, but reduces with age.  Hyaluronic acid in the form of a gel replenishes natural support structures, attracts and improves hydration, and naturally degrades slowly between 9 months to 2 years or longer, depending on the type of filler. 

What are they used for?

Dermal filler injectable gel is placed below the skin’s surface.  As we age, skin plumpness and elasticity, muscle, fat and bone volume and are increasingly diminished. The curves and contours of the face change as this volume is lost. Areas particularly prone to volume loss include the cheeks, mouth area, lips, brows, temples and jawline.  By replacing lost volume, these dermal fillers plump and support the skin structures, creating a more refreshed facial appearance, and can diminishes the depth of wrinkles. They give your skin volume, support and hydration, lost by the ageing process or from inherited features.

For fine lines, thinning lips and wrinkles – thinner dermal fillers are injected superficially to soften the skin’s appearance and softly plump the area. For larger areas more volumising dermal fillers are placed deeper under the skin to give structural support and lift areas such as the cheeks, jawline, temples. 

Dermal fillers are only for use in persons aged 18+.
