Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments used to bring a more youthful appearance by restoring volume or fullness to the face and lips. They work by reducing or eliminating lines, wrinkles and folds in the skin and the effects are seen immediately.
As skin ages naturally and because of other factors such as smoking, sun damage and poor diet etc, we lose collagen, fat and other natural moisturising substances from our skin. These can be thought of as the natural “scaffolding” that keeps skin looking young and feeling firm. With less natural moisturisers our skin becomes thinner and we start to see lines, wrinkles and folds developing, this is usually more noticeable in our faces. Put simply, dermal fillers are used to restore lost volume in the face by “plumping” out the lines, wrinkles and folds.
