What are Dermal Fillers?
As you age, your face starts to naturally lose volume, which results in loose skin, lines and wrinkles, which are caused by a decline in collagen production and skin cell renewal. Environmental factors such as exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, alcohol, smoking, stress and a lack of sleep may also accelerate the aging process.
Unfortunately there’s nothing we can do to prevent the visible signs of ageing, but we can make them a lot less noticeable. By injecting small amounts of dermal filler into the skin volume can be restored giving your skin a plumper, smoother and more radiant appearance. Dermal filler may also be used to give the face definition and enhance the fullness of the lips.
We only use Juvederm Ultra which is the best filler available and contains a local anaesthetic for your comfort. A topical anaesthetic is also used prior to treatment to make sure your procedure is pain free.
Juvederm Ultra can be used to
• Fill and plump wrinkles such as nasolabial lines (nose to mouth), lipstick lines around the mouth and marionette lines (from mouth to chin)
• Lift the corners of the mouth to prevent drooping
• Add definition to the cheeks
• Augment the lips to create a fuller, more defined smile
