Dermal filler (injectable cosmetic filler, injectable facial filler, lip filler) is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles or create volume and structure, restoring a smoother appearance. Our dermal fillers are temporary, which means they are eventually absorbed by the body. Our dermal fillers are made from a Hyaluronic Acid gel which is synthesised from a naturally occurring sugar that is found throughout the body. In our youth, we have an abundance of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our skin and this creates plump, hydrated and youthful skin. As we age, our body’s ability to produce HA declines and the resulting loss of volume and hydration causes wrinkles, facial folds and other outward signs of the ageing process.
By injecting a sugar-based dermal filler into the areas affected by the ageing process, we can mask the visible signs of ageing and restore a youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance or shape certain facial features such as lips or cheekbones. When injected by a highly qualified and skilled practitioner, such as our Cosmetic Injectors, dermal fillers can produce immediate and beautiful results.
Some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect. The effect lasts for about six months to two years depending on the product used and area treated.
