About Dermal Fillers
Dermal filler injections are a popular and safe method of smoothing and plumping the skin to achieve a youthful and radiant look.
As we age, we lose collagen and elastin in the skin resulting in a loss of volume in the cheeks, lips and other areas. After the age of 18 we lose approximately 1% of our skin collagen per year. This can result in the formation of deep lines and wrinkles and sunken cheeks which can make the face look tired. Dermal fillers can help restore a more youthful look.
Dermal filler can also be used for a range of other treatment areas, including cheek volume, tear trough filler and nose reshaping filler.

Vycross®: longer lasting upto 2 years and the most advanced filler product by Allergan, this is a premium filler.
Juvederm Ultra: is a smooth hyaluronic injectable gel filler used for lip augmentation and perioral area for plumper, fuller looking lips.
Voluma: is a clear hyaluronic gel from the makers of Juvederm. It is specially formulated to address volume loss on cheeks, helping to create a plumped up look and combating age-related midface volume loss.
