Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular facial treatment. Fillers are an anti-ageing therapy, which can be used to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles to create young-looking, vibrant skin. As well as rejuvenating the skin, fillers can also be used to showcase your smile by targeting sagging skin in the cheeks and enhancing your lips.
About dermal fillers
Fillers traditionally add volume to the skin and combat the effects of a loss of collagen. Collagen is a fibre, which is used by the body to give the skin structure and shape. As you get older, your body’s collagen stores become depleted, and this is why the skin sags and wrinkles form. Dermal fillers add bounce and firmness to the skin, creating a more youthful look. While fillers can work wonders for your skin, they can also bring out your smile in all its glory. Plumping the pout is an increasingly popular treatment and it can really enhance your smile.
Fillers are usually injected into the skin using a very fine needle in a painless procedure, which lasts around 15-30 minutes. With treatment on the lips, the procedure can take a little longer and it’s likely to be slightly more painful, due to the delicacy of the skin on the lips. To prevent discomfort, we apply topical anaesthetic prior to treatment. The aim is always to produce natural results, which enhance your beauty and showcase your best features.
