Dermal Fillers & Lip Injections
Dermal Fillers To Restore & Add Volume
Are you seeing the first signs of the ageing process, leaving you looking tired and no longer fresh over time? With ageing our ability to produce collagen and elastin for the skin is greatly decreased.
Dermal Fillers restore facial contours from volume loss in the lips, jowls, marionette lines (for the sad look), cheeks, chin, nasolabial folds, as under eye fillers and in permanent frown lines. Dermal Fillers also smooth out wrinkles and add subtle volume in the face for an well rejuvenated appearance.
With injectable filler made from hyaluronic acid gel, a natural sugar already present in our body. Our treatment is a non-surgical, cost effective procedure that restores the fullness and youthful volume in numerous face areas.

What areas can be treated with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers can help to restore volume and hydrate the facial areas that lose volume with age, such as tear trough (hollowing under eyes), nose (nose bridge) and chin (shape augmentation), lip filler (increase volume), vertical lip lines (smokers lines), marionette lines/jowls (outer corners of the mouth to the chin) and nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth).
Cosmetic injections enhance features and decrease the effects of naturally occurring ageing. Static Lines and wrinkles anywhere on the face can be injected to give a smooth more youthful appearance with facial rejuvenation. Lip injections can be used to increase pout (lip plumping) and to decrease the problem of lipstick bleeding (‘smokers lines’). Cheek Fillers can be used to shape high cheek bones (cheek lift augmentation).
Unlike anti-wrinkle injections, these cosmetic injectables do not affect facial muscle contraction. Typically used in the anti ageing skin treatments of wrinkles, fine lines and folds that appear at rest, rather than those that appear during facial expression.
