|As a result of the natural ageing process in combination with lifestyle and environmental factors, the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin diminishes. Responsible for providing the skin with a plump and youthful appearance, this can lead to a loss of volume and therefore, unwanted creases, folds and depressions within the skin. Dermal fillers contain a substance that replicates the actions of a naturally occurring sugar molecule, attracting and holding water to assist with volume restoration, filling lines and smoothing the skin, whilst also providing hydration. Common treatment areas include but are not limited to cheeks, tear troughs, marionette lines, temples and lips. Dermal filler can also be used for profile balancing and chin projection, jawline contouring and scar correction. Our Cosmetic Injectors aim to provide natural looking results to enhance your natural beauty and restore a more youthful appearance.|
