What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers are soft tissue fillers made from Hyaluronic Acid. This is a naturally occurring human protein responsible for cushioning the skin. Hyaluronic acid is hygroscopic which means that it draws water strongly to it and therefore the treated area increases in volume.
This is a non-invasive treatment which is widely used to restore youth and add volume to the face. As we age, our skin begins to lose both elasticity and hydration. This natural ageing process when combined with the effects of gravity, results in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
Enhance your natural features with injectable soft tissue fillers. Increase volume, erase or soften wrinkles, augment lips, assist with facial contouring and induce collagen production.
Having dermal fillers is a quick and easy treatment. Administered via tiny injections that provide instant results with a minimal amount of discomfort or downtime. At Just Skin we use non-permanent dermal fillers which last between 6 – 12 months and have great results for both men and women.
What are typical areas treated with Dermal Fillers?
- Nasolabial folds (Smile lines)
- Perioral area (wrinkles around the lips) and chin
