What are Dermal Fillers and how do they work?
As we age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and moisture as our natural collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decline. Sunlight, smoking, alcohol, stress and sleep deprivation can all hasten this natural aging process.
Dermal fillers are non- permanent, injectable, hyaluronic acid based gels that reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkle whilst boosting the skins moisture levels. They can be used to create instant volume and contour.
What is Juvéderm? ®
he Juvéderm® Ultra range of products is a new generation of hyaluronic acid fillers from ALLERGAN, a world leader in surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products. They use a specially formulated type of hyaluronic acid (HA) that exists naturally in your skin.
It’s a natural, non-animal based, biodegradable gel that flows easily into your skin, instantly filling out those troublesome lines leaving a smooth and natural look and feel. So, you’ll notice an immediate difference after just one treatment. The Juvéderm® family of products last longer than other formulas-at least 9 months due to the unique way they are made.
