Hyaluronic acid facial fillers
Facial filler treatments such as Juvederm or Restylane® are based on hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance which retains water within the skin, lending it a natural softness, elasticity and plumpness. However, when hyaluronic acid within the skin begins to deplete, it can leave skin lacking the youthful roundness and developing ageing hollows or creases.
Dermal fillers can be used to give volume to depressed areas of the face, smoothing out specific creases (e.g. nose to mouth lines) or filling areas where volume loss is more noticeable (e.g. cheeks). Careful use of fillers can give the face a subtle non-surgical ‘lift’ which is rejuvenating and flattering.
Results are temporary, typically lasting around 6-9 months.
