What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugary substance already in our bodies which acts as a sponge and attracts water.
A common sign of aging is loss of volume in the face, particularly the cheeks, mid-face and lips. Over time our body produces less HA resulting in the skin becoming dehydrated. Dermal fillers can provide immediate results with little to no downtime restoring youthfulness whilst enhancing your natural beauty.
Dermal filler is injected just below the skin surface to plump, lift folds and wrinkles and rejuvenate the overall appearance of the face resulting in a natural, more youthful appearance.
