What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are made from complex sugar chains known as hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is found naturally in the body where its main role is to attract water and provide hydration to the skin. Fillers are designed to resemble your body’s own natural HA and can help revitalize your facial features with a variety of treatment that can:
- Enhance facial volume
- Soften lines and wrinkles
- Correct asymmetries and restore facial balance
- Restore fullness to lips
How long does a treatment last for?
The effects of a treatment are long lasting but not permanent. A treatment can last up to 18 months with just one top up treatment. After your initial treatment, follow up sessions are usually recommended to maintain results.
How do fillers work?
Fillers are injected under the skin’s surface to fill out lines and wrinkles and to restore facial contours and asymmetries.
There are different types of dermal fillers formulated for various indications such as; enhancing lips, cheeks, under the eyes, chin, along the jawline, forehead and nose.
After an initial consultation with your practitioner, the most suitable dermal filler will be selected for you.
