WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

Dermal Fillers are injectable gels made of hyaluronic acid (a substance which naturally occurs in the skin).  Dermal Fillers are placed in the skin to help restore volume, fill deep folds and wrinkles, and to rehydrate the skin.  Fine, medium and volumizing fillers are each used for different purposes.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

You will notice the difference immediately, but remember that the hyaluronic acid attracts water and the plumped effect
may improve over time.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED FILLERS?

Most medium fillers used last 9 - 12 months , and the volumizing fillers last 12 - 24 months.

More fillers can be injected at any time after the first treatment if needed.
