LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS TREATMENT
Facial fillers also known as dermal fillers are composed of a naturally occurring molecule known as hyaluronic acid designed to provide structure and volume to the tissues. The results can be extremely natural looking and effective immediately in addressing facial wrinkles, folds and scars to provide a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
As we age, our facial tissues begin to see structre and volume changes. The skin becomes thinner and less hydrated, and the fat beneath our skin can diminish in some areas and gather in others.
A practitoner with an understanding of these ageing changes can use hyaluronic acid "facial fillers" to build strucutre and volume in the areas which need it. Often this begins with the mid face at the cheeks, and then in the lower face at the chin and jawline. This type of treatment is sometimes known as "facial sculpting" or "volumising" and a requires a particular type of filler to maintain desired the lifting effects.
Moreover, fillers can also be used in the skin to boost hydration, plump up fines lines and wrinkles and even improve the appearence of scars. These "dermal fillers" are great for treatment areas such as around the mouth "smokers lines" or "lipstick lines" or in the "nose to mouth lines," for example.
Natural results are obtained by sleecting the correct filler for the treatment area, with careful placement from an expereinced practitioner.
The photographs below show some examples of treatment areas that are suitable for facial fillers.
