One of the most popular aesthetic treatments, dermal fillers are made from medical-grade hyaluronic acid gel. This can be safely and expertly injected into areas of the face and neck where you wish to smooth and volumise the skin. Dermal fillers can help to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and facial volume loss; common concerns that appear from the effects of the ageing process. As dermal fillers provide more volume to the tissues in the skin, they are a great way to enhance the lips or cheekbones and create more defined looking features – which is popular with patients of all ages.
Most dermal fillers do not provide a permanent result. As hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient, and is a substance that’s found naturally in the skin, it will dissolve over time and become absorbed into the body. Although the body’s response can differ from person to person, you can typically expect the outcome to last for between 6 and 18 months. Repeating the treatment regularly can help to maintain your desired look.
