Dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally exists in your body. The soft, synthetic hyaluronic acid gel is injected into the skin where it boosts your own supply of hyaluronic acid, smoothing, filling and plumping out lines to give you a more youthful appearance.
This treatment is long lasting but not permanent. A single treatment can last between six and 12 months, depending on several factors, such as your lifestyle, skin type or age. Fillers give a natural look and do not affect facial expression. Perfect for around the lip and mouth, eyes and brows, dermal fillers can also improve nose to mouth lines. They can add shape and fullness to your lips, and give you an instantly rejuvenated look.
Not really. Dermal fillers are injected using a fine needle, so you should feel only a series of pin pricks.
Dermal fillers have a similar effect as collagen but less intense. You won’t get the ‘pumped up' look as you would with collagen injections. Hyaluronic acid is needed for your body to produce its own collagen, so this treatment simply boosts your body’s own supply.
