Dermal filler treatment involves injecting a substance known as hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the body, into the skin. The actual filler used can either be natural or synthetic.
Fillers are used to treat a range of issues associated with ageing such as thinning skin, folds and wrinkles. The fillers create more volume by replacing fat loss in the affected areas.
Dermal filler injections are effective in treating both dynamic and static wrinkles, including:
- Frown lines — wrinkles occurring between the eyebrows.
- Crow’s feet – fine wrinkles occurring at the corner of the eyes.
- Laugh lines or Nasolabial lines – deep wrinkles occurring from the side of nose through to the corners of the mouth.
They can also be used to treat line lines, fine lines around the mouth or simply to create the appearance of fuller lips.
Depending on the area being treated and your requirements, you will usually need to come in for a treatment every 6 - 12 months.
