What is it?
As we age the collagen that gives our skin durability and flexibility stops producing, resulting in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and the loss of fullness and volume which automatically ages the face. Dermal Fillers are extremely popular in treating such complaints.
How It Works
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected just below the surface of the skin to replenish the supporting elements, filling lines, wrinkles and scars from the inside out. Dermal fillers can restore a smoother, fuller and a fresh youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are very popular with our patients as results are seen immediately and risks with the treatment are relatively low.
