As we age, our skin changes and the stresses and strains of modern life can also take their toll on our skin, resulting in imperfections, like wrinkles and fine lines that are likely to show up on your face. You don’t have to just sit back and let it happen! If you're looking for a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that will smooth out the effects of premature ageing, dermal fillers could be the answer. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds–the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). The two main groups of dermal fillers are based on either hyaluronic acid or collagen, both compounds which occur naturally within the human body. There are a confusing number of dermal filler products available at the moment some of which you will have seen advertised in the media.
Dermal fillers are used to reduce fine lines andwrinkles, smooth scars, add volume to the face and enhance the lips.
Dermal fillers such as the Restylane ® and Juvéderm ®range of products consist of aclear solution of hyaluronic acid which is a substance found naturally in theskin.
Most of the fillers have added ‘lidocaine’ which is alocal anaesthetic used to ‘numb’ the area as it’s being treated. A very fine needle is used to introducethe product just under the skin to produce the desired effects.
