Dermal Fillers Treatments


What are Hyaluronic acid Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body, identical across species. It attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, also ‘cushioning’ and supporting collagen and elastin fibres.
These Facial fillers once injected are used to fill wrinkles or creases in the skin, to diminish facial lines and create a smoother or fuller appearance in the face. It is also used to enhance the shape of certain facial features such as cheekbones or lips.Facial Fillers Treatment are most effective treatment for skin.
