What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are used to treat the effects of ageing in the skin by restoring the volume, lifting and plumping the areas that may have lost elasticity and firmness over time. As we age, our skin naturally loses fatty tissue and collagen, resulting in a gradual loss of volume. Fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid, a form of sugar that naturally occurs in our body to aid the repair of damaged tissue. If you are looking to plump areas of concern, restructuring the trouble areas for a more defined, youthful appearance, Dermal Fillers performed at our clinics might be the perfect solution.
Which concerns do Dermal Fillers treat?
Dermal Fillers are a fantastic anti-ageing injectables solution for many men and women. By restoring shape, volume and plumpness to the skin, they can effectively address concerns including fine lines and wrinkles on the face as well as tightening loose skin around the jawline and neck. Dermal Fillers can also be used to plump and rejuvenate ageing skin on hands.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.
