WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based product used to smooth lines and restore volume to the skin.
HA injections are an attractive treatment option to address age-related changes in skin quality and appearance. Hyaluronic acid can be injected into our skin to fill and plump specific areas. Hyaluronic acid injections are applied to:
• Reduce wrinkles
• Model cheeks
• Correct facial lines and lip shape
• Lessen the appearance of sagging
• Reduce the appearance of depressions in the skin caused by acne scars or injury
• Improve elasticity and hydration of facial, hand, neck and neckline skin
HOW DERMAL FILLERS WORK
The unique ability to hold so much water makes HA invaluable to our skin.Thanks to its ability to stimulate collagen production and its excellent capacity to retain water, hyaluronic acid also keeps our skin smooth, plumped up and well hydrated.
Dermal fillers can be used to restore loss of volume in areas such as the cheeks and lips. It can also be used to shape and sculpt areas such as the nose and jawline. This volumising ability is owed to the hydrating benefits of the HA and range of viscosity available in the Teoxane range.
HA helps improve the appearance of photoaged skin is by reducing water loss from the epidermis. Skin ageing is also influenced by hormonal changes: decreased production of sex hormones like oestrogen can lead to collagen degradation, which results in dryness, loss of elasticity and wrinkling of our skin.
WHERE WE USE DERMAL FILLERS
"After visiting the same clinic for years and not always being satisfied, I decided to give Chrissie and her clinic a visit. I am so pleased I did! Great service, loads of knowledge and the best results I've had in a long time. I will definitely be back!"
"Due to age and a history of smoking, my lips had lost definition so I contacted The Medical Skin Clinic. The service I received was second to none and after the initial consultation I was happy to continue with treatment. The result was better than I could imagine,. Would certainly recommend this place, I am so happy with my results."
