Dermal fillers

Dermal Fillers are used to correct lines and wrinkles, enhance lips and facial contours and can do so instantly, giving natural looking results for up to eighteen months.

 

There has been some controversy and scarey stories in the media over recent months. Horrible complications can arise when non approved fillers are used in ways they should not be. Undesirable results are a problem when unqualified, poorly trained,or inexperienced or unskilled people inject them without caution or respect.

Even those who you would expect to trust can get it wrong when they haven’t been properly trained. It is worth noting that doctors and plastic surgeons do not gain their medical qualifications with an inate ability to provide these treatments safely and with skill, which explains why even celebrities suffer poor results.

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our skin, it’s function being to hold water hydrating and giving volume to the skin.  As we get older the distribution of our natural hyaluronic acid diminishes. When we add this manufactured hyaluronic acid during treatment the body does not recognise it as foreign, it becomes knitted in with our own hyaluronic acid and gradually broken down and excreted along side our own.  Unlike our own hyaluronic acid it is not replaced without further treatment.  The corrected areas gradually return to their pre treatment state, no better, no worse. Results usually last 6-12 months.

There are no animals involved in it’s production and next to no risk of allergic reaction.
