What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body. It attracts and binds water in the skin , providing volume and hydration, but also "cushioning" and supporting collagen and elastin fibres and allows cells to communicate with each other.
Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers are manufactured by cross-linking Hyaluronic acid to produce a clear sterile gel for injection into the skin. Dr. Christine only uses the leading tried and tested brands of dermal filler including Juvederm, Teosyal and Belotero.
How does it work?
Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers are injected into the skin to provide instant correction.
What can be treated with Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers can be used to create volume and contour to the face (cheeks, temples, jawline, chin) and can also be used to instantly soften deep folds such as nose to mouth folds (nasolabial folds) and lines below the mouth (marionette lines). They can be used to define, correct and enhance the lips, and also to restore lost volume in the hands and to improve the tone texture and hydration of the skin.
Does it hurt?
Dr.Christine only uses dermal fillers that also contain a local anaesthetic to reduce any discomfort from the procedure.
Am I suitable?
Dermal filler treatments are not suitable if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Dr.Christine will discuss your concerns at your initial consultation to see if dermal filler treatments are the best treatment for you.
