Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are used for deep lines and wrinkles. Our face naturally loses collagen as we age and natural lines and wrinkles deepen due to sun exposure, air pollution, lifestyle, hereditary and even stress. Dermal filers help to soften facial wrinkles, plump thin lips, restore volume and fullness in the face, improve the appearance of recessed scars, fill hollows, enhance sunken cheeks and smooth the contours of your face. Facial fillers are the non-surgical way to achieve younger looking skin and provide volume for tired lines and wrinkles.
How dermal fillers work
Facial fillers can, smooth wrinkles, plump up your skin and fill out deep lines by replacing the collagen lost due to natural ageing.
Dermal fillers Juvederm and Restylane are injected in small, controlled doses with an ultrafine needle just under the surface of skin of the area to be treated. This fills out deepened areas and lines to give a smoother, firmer and more refreshed appearance making you look more youthful.
