Plump lines and enhance facial contours for an instantly youthful appearance……
If the skin on your face has lost its firmness and fullness, a facial filler treatment may be the perfect solution.
Dermal filler is a naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the face to smooth wrinkles and folds especially around the nose and mouth to give your face a younger, refreshed more plumped appearance. It is also used to plump out scars or indentations in the face and to define and enhance lips, reshape the nose, or define and plump out cheeks.
How does it work?
Fillers are injected into the skin through a thin needle or cannula. The hyaluronic acid used holds many times its own weight in water, and this is ‘crosslinked’ to keep it stable within the skin, thus providing soft volume under the skin which plumps up deflated cheeks or thin lips, or hollow temples, or sharpens the jawline. Fillers comes in different thicknesses depending on what they are to be used for – you need a firmer filler to provide structure in the face and, say, augment the jawline, while you want a fluid one for use around the eyes.
The filler stays in place and integrates with the skin tissues over the following three months.
