Dermal Fillers Explained
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is found naturally in almost every cell in the body with the greatest concentrations in the skin tissue. HA is found in the deep dermal layers as well as the top epidermal layer of the skin and forms the smooth and elastic properties of young skin. Hyaluronic acid can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water – that is why it is often referred to as the body’s internal moisturiser. With age, the skin’s ability to produce HA decreases. Dermal fillers are non-permanent, hyaluronic acid which provides volume, hydration and shape to the tissues.
The HA dermal fillers we use at Smile Concepts Facial Aesthetic Centre are Juvederm and Restylane. They are soft, natural and tissue friendly and more importantly, have a high level of safety and can be reversed.
They are used to restore firmness, volume and fullness to the skin where folds and wrinkles have formed due to ageing. They may be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, rejuvenate areas where fat has been loss (cheeks, temples) and improve asymmetries. Dermal fillers can also be used to plump, volumise and reshape thin or thinning lips.
