Dermal Fillers – what are they?

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 […]
