What is a dermal filler?
A dermal filler is an injectable gel that adds volume to your skin and lips with natural looking results. The dermal fillers we use at FaceWorks are all made from hyaluronic acid [HA] which is a substance naturally found in the skin. They are well tested and safe.
There are many types of HA filler available and each is used for different areas of the face and to achieve different results. To find out what type or types of filler would be right for you, please book an Initial Consultation with one of our experienced Cosmetic Physicians or Cosmetic Nurses.
Dermal Fillers used at FaceWorks
The dermal fillers used at FaceWorks are from the Juvederm range (made by France ) or from the Teosyal range (made in Switzerland) and are all temporary and safe hyaluronic acid gels. Each type of filler has its own unique properties. These hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are natural injectable gels which act as a skin “filler”. They are all a complex sugar (hyaluronic acid or HA) which is found naturally within the tissues of the body, including skin. The different types of hyaluronic acid filler used at FaceWorks all have different methods of manufacture, and all have different properties when injected. For instance, some fillers are better at “lifting” and plumping while others are preferable for fine lines and improving skin texture.
Fillers may last from 6 months to more than 18 months - the longevity depends on many factors including age and skin condition of the patient, whether or not you are a smoker and which filler is the right one for you.
