What is Filler Treatment?
The term dermal fillers encompasses a wide range of products, and is an expression which describes treatment that restores volume and structure to the face.
Dermal fillers work to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, crepey skin and give a more youthful look. The high levels of hyaluronic acid have the effect of attracting and retaining water, instantly improving the skin’s appearance and texture by restoring its natural plumpness.
Due to our extensive clinical research and progression in the industry, we use hyaluronic acid fillers; a natural ingredient which is found in the body, but diminishes as we age. They are a popular means of restoring volume to the facial structure, creating a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
