Dermal Fillers - Restylane and Juvederm

Dermal or Facial Fillers such as Restylane & Juvederm  Why should I consider them?

Dermal fillers replace lost volume and treat static facial lines by replenishing the natural hyaluronic acid content of the skin.  We offer dermal fillers as an alternative treatment to Collagen injections.  Small quantities of dermal filler are injected into carefully targeted areas to help give facial features back their fullness, reduce wrinkles and enhance contours.  As a result, the face will feel smoother and look younger.

The ageing process is associated with a loss of skin volume and the appearance of static lines i.e. lines that are permanently visible on the face rather than lines caused by movement of muscles. As we age, the hyaluronic acid content of the skin which is so important for water retention and hydration decreases.  Oil glands become less active and the skin becomes drier, loses fat so becomes less plump, and its youthful texture and glow starts to fade.

Like Collagen injections dermal fillers are used to correct creases, folds or scars and add contour definition to the face and mouth. Injectable fillers can temporarily restore a smoother, more youthful looking appearance by increasing volume in creased and sunken areas of the face, results of which can last for 6-12 months.
