Enhancement with Dermal Fillers
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid (HA) when you are young, which keeps the skin full, hydrated and elastic. Dermal fillers mimic the effects of HA causing reduced facial lines, scars and increased plumpness of skin and lips. It is also commonly used to treat lines caused by smoking and sun damage.

WHAT TYPE OF DERMAL FILLERS DO WE USE?
The Dermal Filler is injected beneath skin, only taking a few moments per site. When injected, the Dermal Filler gets to work, if injected to the skin it will smooth wrinkles and replace any volume lost to the skin. Similarly, they add volume and plumpness when injected to the lips and cheeks. Depending on amount of areas being treated the process can take from 15 minutes to an hour.
