Natural substances such as collagen and elastin that provide the skin with structure and volume decrease with age. This combined with environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress all contributes to how our skin ages.
As we age skin becomes progressively thinner and we tend to lose volume in the face. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth out and re-volumise the face or to softly enhance your lips, providing a natural look and feel.
A dermal filler is a smooth injectable gel which assists in skin hydration by attracting and holding water and also combines with collagen and elastin to provide skin structure and elasticity.
Unlike wrinkle relaxing injections that treat dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the muscles, dermal fillers are placed below the skin’s surface to literally “fill in” or “plump up” the static facial wrinkles and folds that are present at rest. It diminishes the depth of wrinkles and creates a natural and more refreshed facial appearance and lasts from six to nine months.
A recent breakthrough in dermal fillers has a local anaesthetic built into the dermal filler itself, making the experience more comfortable for patients. It can be injected into all areas that dermal fillers are usually used, enhancing or restoring volume.
