Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body, which helps to hydrate and provide volume to our skin, keeping it looking young.
With age and exposure to the elements, our bodies produce less of this youth-preserving ingredient and our skin becomes thinner with lines, wrinkles and folds developing resulting in an overall dull and sunken appearance.
By carefully and precisely injecting this HA based gel, volume and fullness can be restored and recreated. The effects are immediate and can last anywhere between 6-12 months before being completely absorbed by the body.
Dermal fillers are particularly useful in treating lines between the nose and mouth (naso-labial folds), mouth to chin lines (marionette lines) and chin creases. Volume can also be restored to hollow cheeks.
Due to its immediate effects, dermal fillers can be used to augment the shape of lips, correct asymmetries and add volume to thin ageing lips.
Treatment time 30 minutes, down time 2-3 days to account for swelling. Results are seen immediately and last between 6-12 months.
