Dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. It is responsible for attracting and holding water within the skin, giving the skin a youthful appearance.
Over time, hyaluronic acid is metabolised by the body, causing the skin to develop lines and appear sunken. Dermal fillers restore hyaluronic acid molecules to the skin, causing it to ‘plump’ the skin and give it a smoother, more voluminous appearance.
As we age we lose volume and skin laxity and we can appear sunken, Dermal fillers restore
hyaluronic acid molecules to the skin, which plumps up the area and improves the signs of aging including drooping, sagging and loose skin.
The thickness of the dermal filler gel varies and is used for different purposes. The right treatment depends on the area being treated and the amount of volume to be restored. Our experienced and knowledgeable Doctor has performed over 20,000 treatment and can develop a unique treatment plan with you to create a natural and youthful appearance.

Results vary from patient to patient and are never guaranteed. Every patient is different depending on skin structure, laxity of skin, amount of hollowness and size of region. However, most patients begin to see visible results within just days of undergoing a dermal injection. Results may continue to improve over the course of several weeks. Depending on the location of your injection and the type of filler used, the effects of your filler may last 6 to 18 months.
Most people are suitable candidates for the dermal filler treatment, but you will be able to discuss your medical history during your consultation. This will help our professional team to advise on the best treatment for you.

We recommend waiting two weeks between injections and review of treatment, this allows the dermal filler to integrate with the soft tissues of the face and allows time for swelling to settle.
