What are dermal fillers and how can they help?
Dermal filler is a gel like substance containing hyaluronic acid. This acid is also present in skin and is responsible for retaining moisture and keeping the skin plump. By adding hyaluronic acid to the skin, dermal filler add volume by attracting and holding on to moisture. This results in hydrated skin and its plumpness is enhanced. Dermal fillers also stimulate collagen production over several weeks thus strengthening the skin. The main brands of fillers we use are are Lumifil, Juvederm & Restylane Most fillers contain lidocaine which help reduce discomfort during injections.
