Achieving realistic results
This treatment is used to give back volume in the areas where is has been lost, such as around the nose and mouth area (naso-labial folds and marionette lines). It can also be used to enhance features such as the cheek, jawline and chin area. For lip fillers, please see ‘Lip Augmentation’.
Dermal Fillers consist of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). We have plenty of HA in our faces when we are younger, unfortunately as part of the ageing process the amount HA we have reduces. Dermal Fillers allow us to put some of this lost HA back.
