Many injectable Dermal Filler products contain an ingredient called ‘Hyaluronic Acid’, a naturally occurring sugar that is produced by cells in connective tissues throughout our bodies. Hyaluronic Acid molecules can hold up to 1000 times their own weight in water, helping to hydrate the skin and ‘plump it up’ with youthful volume. However, as we age, the natural production of Hyaluronic Acid in our cells reduces and our skin can appear dull and lacklustre, with fine lines and wrinkles appearing more noticeable.
Dermal fillers – including those containing Hyaluronic Acid – can help to restore volume in the areas of your face affected by a reduction in the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The filler plumps up the layers of skin immediately beneath the treatment area and the result is an instant ‘filling-out’ effect so that the skin looks smoother and appears less wrinkled. Although they can be used in a number of areas, some of the most popular skincare concerns tackled with Dermal fillers include:
- Nose to mouth lines, cheek lines, frown lines
- “Smoker’s Lines”
- loss of cheek volume
- loss of volume generally
- tear troughs
- lip Enhancement
