What are dermal fillers? 

As we grow older we become wiser but we may also lose the youthful appearance of our skin.  We lose volume in the cheeks, lines begin to appear around our lips, nose, under our eyes and our lips may become thinner.  Dermal fillers are gels composed of hyaluronic acid which is a natural component found in everyones skin.  Hyaluronic acid helps to keep moisturise in the skin and maintain the volume.  By using different types of filler we can plump out lines on the skin, add volume to cheeks and minimise the appearance of aging. 

Hyaluronic acid fillers directly plum out the lines in the skin and then attracts and retains moisture within the skin to help ensure results can last.
