Dermal filler is one of many treatments available to reduce wrinkles, loss of volume and signs of ageing.
We suggest you set up a consultation to assess which treatment would be suitable in your case.
There are many dermal fillers available, each with it’s own advantages and disadvantages. Today most fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, though other products are also used. Most practitioners use non-permanent fillers. However, there are some fillers with a much longer lasting effect or even permanent effect.
Dermal filler can help you restore lost facial volume, contour the cheeks and chin, reduce nasa labial folds, augment the lips and reduce fine and deeper lines.
It’s vital that you discuss your needs and expectations with your doctor to ensure that you get a result that matches your expectation. This requires that the doctor has an individual approach to each patient.
