As we age, skin changes – we lose hydration and facial fat. Our natural elasticity reduces and our skin becomes more fragile; over time the natural volume of your youthful skin begins to fade, and sadly wrinkles and folds start to form. Skin will eventually begin to sag, and “expressive” wrinkles will start to appear. These in time become harder to smooth out.
Injectable Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can restore, re-volumise and rejuvenate these facial lines and augment the appearance of the face – safely and effectively giving a refreshed appearance and look.
