Dermal Filler

HOW DERMAL FILLERS WORK?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by our cells specially in connective tissues. This is an essential ingredient to keep our skin plumped and hydrated. As we grow older, the natural production of hyaluronic acid deprives causing our skin to suffer from dehydration which results in skin losing its elasticity and volume.

Hyaluronic acid has the ability to keep moisture which is why most fillers, such as Restylane and Juvéderm, use hyaluronic acid in order to retain skin hydration while creating a more plumped, tone, and natural look. Dermal fillers reduce wrinkles and fine lines which gives skin more volume. Dermal fillers give you a younger, more plumped and even textured skin without you undergoing any invasive cosmetic treatments.
