A common misconception about dermal fillers is that they aren't safe for the patient. We are going to bust some myths and outline the truths around dermal filler injections.

Before we get into it, here’s some key information and what you need to know about dermal fillers that not many people know…

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are used for aesthetic treatments and are designed to be injected into the skin to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and to revitalise the skin. Dermal fillers are made up of Hyaluronic acid which is a substance that naturally exists in your body, so works by boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, to revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This will give an overall natural softer, younger look.


What can dermal fillers do?

Largely used as an anti ageing injectable treatment, they help to restore lost volume to the face and hands as well as accelerating the production of collagen in the skin where collagen and elastin production has begun to deplete due to the normal process of ageing.
