Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid (HA) gels that are injected under the skin. HA exists naturally in the cells in our body, concentrated in the layers of the skin. It binds up to 1000 times its weight in water, causing a plumping of the skin. It depletes with age, causing the visible effects of ageing.
Incredibley this safe, naturally based material has been developed to be injected under the skin to restore volume and fullness to folds of skin and wrinkles that have developed over time or damage. Different preparations in texture can be used in different areas of the face and body
Common areas of use:
Smile lines or Nasolabial lines
These run from the bottom of the nose down to the corners of the mouth.
Marionette Lines. These form below the corners of the mouth. They often give the appearance of a sagging or a down-turned mouth
Vertical Lip lines or ’smokers lines’
These are fine lines above and around the lips which can appear over time due to ordinary lip muscle movement. However factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking, and stress can also accelerate this process
NB: Minimal redness and bruising can occur. This can be significantly reduced preparation with the laser.
ALL THE FILLERS THAT WE USE ARE TEMPORARY
Depending on the area and product used, these fillers are all metabolised by the body at different speeds. This allows your face to change naturally over time.
We can also amend fillers that may have been incorrectly placed by other practitioners and also dissolve most misplaced products if we know what was used.
