As we grow older, collagen and elastin production depletes significantly, causing skin to lose its firmness and radiant look. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. It to hydrate and add volume to our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body and is constantly replaced. As we age this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturising and plumping effects of hyaluronic acid decrease.
Dermal fillers are an injectable substance made from natural and synthetic material and have been developed for injection into the skin to restore its youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are non-surgical, temporary alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Dermal fillers are used to fill out lines and reshape the face. They can be used to to treat a variety of different conditions:
- Acne scars
- Depressions or marks in the skin
- Unevenness in the skin following surgery
- Frown lines / lines between the eyebrows
- Smokers lines
- Marionette lines
- Worry lines (running across the forehead)
- Lip border
- Deep smile lines
- Crows feet
- Other facial lines
Dermal Fillers work differently to Botulinum toxin (Botox), which reduces the appearance and development of wrinkles by paralysing small facial muscles. Dermal fillers simply plump out and fill in wrinkles, without affecting facial movement. Fillers are designed to instantly add volume to the dermis layer of the skin. The dermis layer lies between the surface layer of the skin (epidermis) and the fatty layer beneath (hypodermis).
