Over time, as the skin ages, it looses some of its collagen and fat – the natural underlying material that gives the skin structure and prevents your skin from sagging – and as a result, the skin becomes wrinkled. Dermal Fillers can help restore our skin to its former youthful, fuller appearance and treat signs of ageing.

Dermal fillers are pure crystal-clear Hyaluronic acid (HA) gels which, when injected into the skin, replenishes the natural HA which is lost through ageing – delivering action where it is needed. It boosts the skin's own hydration system and restores youthful volume by supporting the skin's structure and working at a deep dermal level to help delay the signs of ageing. Dermal fillers are injected gently with very fine needles into areas of the skin where it needs to be plumped-up and made to look firmer. The treatment can have an enormously positive effect on your appearance and self-esteem.
