Dermal Filler

Facial contouring, volume, and structure

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to replace volume and smooth out unwanted lines. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and volume which creates lines and wrinkles. Genetics, gravity and external factors such as smoking all exacerbate this process. Hyaluronic acid (HA) keeps the skin full and elastic. As we age, levels of HA decrease and the skin loses fat. HA binds to water, meaning dermal fillers can be an excellent way to hydrate your skin. We can treat nasolabial lines, marionette lines and lips.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do dermal fillers treat?

Dermal fillers are used to create volume, structure, and contour in areas of the face. Lip fillers are popular for defining the lips, and cheek fillers for accentuating the cheekbone or replacing lost volume. They can also be used to add structure to the jawline and chin in order to add dimension to your facial profile. For those seeking subtle rejuvenation, they can be placed in areas around the mouth and cheeks to treat sagging skin and volume loss due to the ageing process.
