Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate the face by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. As we get older, we start to lose volume around certain areas of the face which can make us look tired and sunken. This is caused by the body’s decreased ability to produce collagen and elastin.
Unlike wrinkles which require muscle relaxants to soften them, facial volume and folds require a dermal filler to help re-volumise and hydrate the area.
Dermal fillers is highly effective at restoring the fullness and plumpness of the area they’re applied to, as well as stimulating the growth of collagen giving your skin a much needed hydration boost.
Dermal Fillers are used to treat many areas, they can fill in deep lines, creases and wrinkles while adding volume to thin or wrinkled lips.
Dermal Fillers are a non-surgical treatment that will add volume or plump up areas where wrinkles and folds have appeared due to ageing. Dermal fillers will help to smooth lines, enhance lips and restore cheeks to give you a more youthful and fresh faced look.
