DERMAL FILLERS

AN INSTANT WAY TO ENHANCE AND TURN BACK TIME

Dermal Fillers are popular, anti-ageing injectable treatment that  volumises and lifts the skin leaving it hydrated, contoured and youthful. With results that can be seen immediately  and no down-time it’s easy to understand why it’s one of our most popular  treatments. The most popular treatment areas include:

  • Nose to Mouth Grooves (known Nasal labial folds)
  • Mouth to chin ( known Marionette lines)
  • Cheeks – to lift and enhance the whole face
  • Chin & Jawline – to sculpt and define
  • Acne Pits & Scarring
  • Lip Lines – to fill lipstick lines, (known as smoker’s lines)
  • Lip Filler- to define the vermilion boarder and add volume and shape to the body of the lips.

ABOUT DERMAL FILLERS

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the body which is found the deep layers of the skin known as the dermis, and one of its functions is to keep skin smooth and healthy by helping it retain water. As we age our body’s production of hyaluronic acid gradually declines, resulting in visible signs of ageing. Natural lines and wrinkles deepen, lips lose their fullness, lines appearing around the mouth and nose area, and cheeks lose volume giving them a sunken and hollow appearance.

Dermal Fillers are a man made, non-animal, substance that mimics the body’s natural depleted hyaluronic acid. Once injected the fillers provide support and structure to the skin helping to build new collegen and  giving a plumped and youthful appearance. The semi-permanent fillers provide safe, long- lasting and natural looking results.

There are many facial fillers on the market that are substandard in terms of ingredients and quality. At Skin IQ clinic we only use the most advanced temporary dermal filler ranges available: Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal ranges. Most importantly, we only allow fully qualified, certified and experienced aesthetic practitioners to inject fillers.
