If you want to restore the look of plump and youthful skin, dermal fillers can create fullness in soft tissues and fill lines and wrinkles. If you’re considering facial aesthetics treatment using dermal filler, here’s what you need to know.

What is dermal filler?

Dermal filler is often known as a wrinkle filler, but it’s one of the most versatile treatments available. Unlike Botox, which ‘freezes’ muscles, natural fillers like Juvaderm and Restylane use injectable hyaluronic acid, which restores the face’s natural contours.

You’re probably already familiar with the effects of using a hyaluronic acid anti ageing cream, but only injectable fillers can truly recreate youthful volume.

How can fillers enhance my appearance?

Fillers can do so much more than help soften wrinkles. As the skin loses collagen and subcutaneous fat over time, dermal and lip filler can help support and lift for a natural, fresher looking you.

Lasting between 6-18 months, fillers can help smooth out marionette lines, plump out sunken cheeks, enhance the lips, and generally improve the symmetry of your face. If you’re seeking skincare aesthetic treatment, we’ll recommend the right filler for your facial anatomy for optimal results.

Is filler irreversible?

Although permanent fillers are available, we prefer to work with reversible fillers that can be dissolved with an injection of hyaluronidase. Permanent fillers won’t bio-degrade in the body but reversible ones do. Reversible fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in the body, in our joints and skin. Therefore, reversible fillers rarely cause allergic reactions and assimilate with our own body very easily.

We believe in creating an aesthetic based on your personal bone structure and facial contours, resulting in more youthful and natural-looking results.
