Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments used to bring a more youthful appearance by temporarily restoring volume or fullness to the face and lips. They work by reducing or eliminating lines, wrinkles and folds in the skin and the effect is seen immediately after treatment.
Various kinds of safe, natural and man-made materials are used as dermal fillers; these have been specifically developed over the years for use in the skin and are completely safe.
As we age, the underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to breakdown naturally or due to other factors such as sun damage, smoking or poor diet, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or facial creases over the areas where movement occurs. Whilst most people can benefit from this treatment, there are certain medications and conditions that preclude its use. Your clinician will go through the relevant medical history to make sure it is safe for you. Like Botox® treatments, this is a safe and popular cosmetic therapy that works very well in trained hands. It is growing in popularity in both male and female patients with fantastic and predictable results.
