JUVÉDERM dermal fillers are a range of smooth injectable gels made from hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the skin. The hyaluronic acid attracts and holds water to boost volume and hydration and helps to give long lasting results.
A fine needle is used to inject dermal fillers beneath the skin into specific areas. Fillers can be used to plump up small areas such as the lips and to add or replace volume in larger areas like the jawline and cheeks, they are effective in reducing facial sagging and in making folds and wrinkles less noticeable.
Dermal fillers are a safe and simple way to refresh your appearance. Choose a fully qualified and experienced practitioner who will create a natural look for you.
