Dermal Fillers

One of the main constituents of the skin is hyaluronic acid, responsible for skin hydration. Hyaluronic acid has an amazing ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight with water which helps it maintain skin smoothness and volume. As we become older the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases which leads to loss of volume. Dermal fillers are composed of stabilized hyaluronic acid therefore when we inject these into the skin we are effectively giving our own hyaluronic acid a helping hand, helping it to restore volume and lift the skin to smooth away and soften the appearance of facial lines. Dermal fillers treatment at Smile Concepts, in Solihull, Birmingham, use non-animal product and patch testing is not required.

Dermal fillers are used most commonly to smooth nose to mouth lines and to enhance the lips, but can be used to treat most lines and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural product and will, through time be completely broken down.

Treatment of facial lines generally show improvement for 9-12 months.
