WHAT ARE THEY?
As the skin ages, it gradually loses some of its collagen, hyaluronic acid and fat. These are the materials that prevent the skin from becoming droopy or saggy. Dermal fillers help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance. Material is injected into the skin in areas where it needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer.
Which one do you use?
There are many kinds of fillers and new ones are coming onto the market every day. They are generally made from either collagen or hyaluronic acid. They last between 6-12 months. Some common brand names include Teosyal, Restylane, Hydrafill, Juvederm and Radiesse. We use Teosyal, which is an Award Winning 100% hyaluronic acid based dermal filler.
We use it as it is a non-animal product Dermal Fillers, it causes less pain and swelling on injection, it is very versatile and it has a superb safety record. Furthermore, it is temporary, giving you the chance to reassess your needs in 6-12 months. Over 600 000 syringes were injected before January 2008. Less than 1 in 20,000 reported any side effects, all of which were temporary and mild.
