Dermal fillers are a multi-functioning treatment and can be used to reduce deep lines and wrinkles, restoring volume and contour areas of the face such as lips or cheeks.
They are often made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body, identical across species. It attracts and binds with water, providing volume and hydration, as well as supporting collagen and elastin fibres.
Treatment is administered in a single session, producing immediate results with minimal downtime.
Treatment areas include:
Tear trough - softening under eye shadows
Jaw line enhancement
Nose refining - enhancing the tip of the nose or reducing humps
