Dermal Fillers

As our skin ages, we lose dermal collagen, which is a type of fibrous protein that connects and supports skin, bone, tendons, muscles and cartilage. We also lose fat under the skin (subcutaneous). This results in characteristic contour changes in the facial profile and wrinkles.

With current technology, we are able to restore your youthful appearance by removing your static wrinkles and lines, rejuvenating your profile, adjusting mild asymmetries and improving skin defects and scars.

Dermal fillers can be used to plump areas that look gaunt due to age, weight loss or stress. Fillers can also erase or significantly reduce the appearance of lines and creases in the face. Products that perform these functions can be broadly classifiable into either biodegradable or non-biodegradable.

Biodegradable fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, whilst the non-biodegradable fillers can last between 3 to 5 years.

Examples of dermal fillers that we use include

  • Juvederm®
  • Sculptra®
  • Restylane®
  • Radiesse®
  • Belotero®

What are facial implants used for?

  • Frown lines (glabellar lines)
