Dermal fillers are made of a specifically formulated hyaluronic acid which acts like our body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is present naturally in our skin, and helps our skin to look youthful, giving it fullness and elasticity. It has a unique ability to bind water molecules – providing support and structure to the skin.
Dermal fillers generally address the following concerns – lines and wrinkles, loss of volume and lack of facial volume or lip volume. Treatment can last between 6-18 months depending on the nature of treatment.
As we age the natural production of hyaluronic acid by our bodies slows down. This means that our skin can become thinner, dehydrated and less firm, losing its radiance and youthful appearance. This is often noticeable around the oral tissues and lips, i.e. nose to mouth lines, corners of the mouth. At the same time, the natural ageing process drives changes to the underlying bone structure of the face, which can lead to a lack of definition in facial contours, such as our cheeks.
Dermal fillers can help to enhance your facial balance by providing more definition and shape. The lips are most commonly treated, where a more defined look or a more natural fullness may be required.
