What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a group of injectable substances that are used to treat facial wrinkles, volume loss and other signs of ageing. They are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps the skin retain moisture and volume. The most common types of dermal fillers are Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse.
How do they work?
When injected into the dermis, dermal fillers act like an inflated cushion to plump up the area and give the skin a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. The filler is placed below the skin’s surface in the areas where wrinkles and folds are present. The filler works by filling in these areas and creating a smoother, younger looking skin surface. It can also be used to add volume to lips, cheeks, and other areas of the face.
Overall, dermal fillers are an effective and safe way to reduce the signs of ageing and add volume and definition to the face. With the right product and technique, they can produce natural-looking results that can last for several months or even years.
What is the procedure for dermal fillers?
The procedure begins with a consultation with our professional team. During this time, we will evaluate the patient’s skin and discuss their goals for the procedure. Our expert will then recommend a dermal filler that is best suited for the patient’s needs.
The next step is to prepare the area for the injection. Our professional will cleanse the skin with a gentle cleanser, then apply a topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort.
Once the area is prepped, we will inject the filler into the areas of the face that need to be treated. The number of injections and the amount of filler used will depend on the desired results. Our qualified practitioner will use a fine needle and inject the filler into the skin.

What is the difference between dermal fillers and Botox?
Dermal fillers are used to fill in wrinkles and other areas of facial volume loss, whereas Botox is used to relax the facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Botox is injected into the muscles and works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, causing them to relax and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal fillers are injected directly into the skin to increase volume and restore a youthful appearance.
