As you grow older the volume of the face starts to thin out, resulting in hollow cheeks and facial folds. Dermal fillers are natural ingredients that can be injected into the skin to plump and correct the contours of the face, reversing these signs of aging temporarily. Dermal Fillers are also used to augment your face no matter the age, to give you fuller lips and fuller cheeks. Please book your free consultation today!
Dermal fillers come in two varieties: semi-permanent and temporary. Temporary fillers such as Restyline , Revanese , Beletero are made with hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule that’s naturally occurring in the body, particularly the skin. Hyaluronic acid is what gives the skin its suppleness, smoothness and a healthy glow. Youthful skin is abundant in hyaluronic acid, which is why younger people have few lines and wrinkles. Over time, the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid starts to decline, causing it to lose volume and start looking less youthful and plump. This can lead to dullness or uneven tone.
Hyaluronic acid molecules can attract and retain 1000 times their weight in water. When injected under the skin, dermal filler gel can smooth lines and wrinkles, fill in hollow areas and lift sagging skin. Recent availability of high-tech hyaluronic acid materials made with denser cross-linked technology can be injected structurally along the jawline to mimic bone, in the nose area to raise the bridge or for chin augmentation. These new fillers can last up to 24 months depending on the product and where it’s placed.
