Dermal Fillers

Facial Dermal Fillers

Age, hormonal changes, sun exposure and smoking all cause changes in our skin and our faces show the effects especially clearly. Reducing levels of an important substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) means our skin becomes less able to hold onto moisture. In addition, the skin’s natural oils, fat layers and blood supply all fall. All these changes mean that our facial skin is drier, more fragile and less supple. It loses its youthful, dewy look, becomes lined and wrinkled and tends to sag. Older may be wiser, but you don’t have to settle for less beautiful!

1What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are one way of treating lines, wrinkles, blemishes and scarring (such as acne scars) and for restoring volume. At Essentials, our Aesthetic Health Professional only uses premium quality, HA-based fillers with a built-in local anaesthetic to help make treatments simple and comfortable. These silky smooth gels help replenish your skin’s elasticity and strength and restore your natural facial contours.

2What results can I expect?

Dermal filler treatments are fast and effective and you’ll see the benefits right away. Because our fillers are non-granular, the effect is ultra-smooth. Your skin looks younger, smoother and fresher and you’ll be able to get back to work or normal life immediately. Some people experience slight redness, swelling or bruising but any such problems generally disappear quickly. You should be fine within a few days.
