Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler Treatments
Dermal fillers are injected just below the skin and are being used more and more to help reverse the changes associated with ageing and provide a more youthful look.
As our skin ages it gradually loses its major constituents: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin, elastin allows our skin to stay firm and resist wrinkles and hyaluronic acid helps to trap water and add volume and shape to our skin. The loss of these constituents produces changes in our skin and, together with other factors like genetics, sun exposure, alcohol and smoking, increases the likelihood of developing lines and wrinkles. These types of lines are known as static lines and they are visible when our face is still.
Dermal fillers are used to replace the loss of these elements in the skin. They can soften and contour lines, folds, and wrinkles. Dermal Fillers also mimic the hydrating and lifting effect of your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid, which keeps the skin hydrated and elastic.
There are different types of dermal fillers used in cosmetics; the safer dermal fillers are those containing hyaluronic acid, one of the natural occurring substances in our skin. These fillers are non-animal based and therefore there is a minimal or no risk of allergic reactions. That is why at SkinMedico we have made the choice of only using hyaluronic acid fillers.
We pride ourselves on using the leading brands – Juvéderm®, Restylane® and Teosyal – which are proven to be safe and reliable. These products can include local anaesthetics to minimise any discomfort that this treatment may cause.
At SkinMedico, we offer you a full medical assessment prior to your first treatment. We will advise you on an individualised plan of treatment to suit your needs. This process gives you a great opportunity to ask all the questions that you might have and discuss the treatment plan. Dermal Fillers can be carried out alone or in combination with other treatments like Botox®.
