Dermal Fillers

For many people, the younger they look, the better they feel about themselves. However, as we know, age is an unstoppable process, and as the body grows older so does the skin. Consequently the skin's appearance and characteristics change, leading to a less youthful complexion.

Age, hormones, sun exposure and smoking can all cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop; skin feels more fragile and less elastic.

As we age the hyaluronic acid (HA) content of our skin - which is important for water retention - decreases. Oil-producung glands become less active and your skin becomes drier. The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth, and because the number of blood vessels in your skin decreases, the skin loses its youthful colour and glow.

While all these changes are taking place gravity is also at work, pulling at the skin and causing it to sag, losing elasticity, and that youthful look we all aspire to.

Amongst the options to treat lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers - which contain hyaluronic acid - are a popular choice as they effectively diminish the signs of ageing, and rehydrate the skin's tissue. Treatment is both quick and convenient, and results can be seen straight away.

Dermal fliier treatments can instantly smooth away wrinkles, and provide volume to cheeks and cheek bones. Fillers can also be used to give volume and definition to lips.

Only products from reputable companies, with excellent safety profiles are used. These products are made from Hyaluronic Acid which is a substance already present in the skin in large quantities during our youth, but that decreases with age. The products break down naturally in the skin over time. The results will last between 9-18 months.
