Dermal fillers to lift, plump and rejuvenate the skin.

Hyaluronic acid therapy is a temporary filler for facial augmentation. It is a safe, non-surgical procedure that plumps out and softens facial lines and furrows. It also has the added benefit of not requiring skin testing before use given manufacturers have found allergic complications are very rare.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance which is found in all living organisms. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissue and eye fluid. It is also present in cartilage and joint fluids.

In skin tissue Hyaluronic acid supports and thickens skin structure.  It is a jelly-like substance which draws and holds fluid to itself filling out the space between the collagen and elastin fibres. The role of hyaluronic acid in skin is to:

  • Provide a mechanism of transport of essential nutrients from the bloodstream to living skin cells
  • Hydrate the skin by holding in water
  • Act as a cushioning and lubricating agent against mechanical and chemical damage

Over time, either through the natural process of aging or through exposure to environmental factors such as pollutants and sunlight, the body’s natural store of hyaluronic acid is degraded and destroyed.

Hyaluronic acid implantation is not permanent. Like natural hyaluronic acid, manufactured hyaluronic acid, once injected in to the skin will gradually break down and be absorbed into the body. In most cases, the augmentation usually lasts anywhere between 6 and 12 months for lighter products and 18 to 24 months with a stronger substance, with residual visible results gradually disappearing over this time. To maintain the initial results, repeat treatments or top-up treatments will be necessary.
