Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are a popular and versatile injectable anti-ageing treatment ideal for restoring facial volume, and softening lines and wrinkles. They are particularly effective at treating the nose to mouth area (nasal labial folds); mouth to chin grooves (also known as marionette lines); sagging cheeks; and thinning lips.

Dermal Fillers mimic the effect of hyaluronic acid – a substance that occurs naturally within the body, and is responsible for skin elasticity and hydration. As we age, our hyaluronic acid levels decrease – a factor that contributes to visible signs of ageing.

Our Dermal Fillers are made from non-animal, synthetic hyaluronic acid that is biocompatible with the body’s natural hyaluronic acid.


How Dermal Fillers work

Dermal Fillers work by lifting and plumping the skin from beneath, enhancing the facial contours and creating a more youthful complexion.


Prior to the treatment, the wrinkles look like deep ridges and dips in the surface. This is due to a breakdown of collagen and elastin, the proteins that form the building blocks of skin. Once injected, the Dermal Fillers act like a support, providing structure where it is lacking. This gives the skin a plumped, more youthful appearance.
