Derma Fillers

Dermal fillers are gel substances made up primarily of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, and are injected into the skin to plump up, lift and tighten skin and used to treat a wide variety of skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and unhappiness with facial structure. Dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look that does not affect facial expression or movement.

Dermal fillers are a very flexible form of non-surgical aesthetic treatment, and can be used all over the face, including the lips, cheeks, chin and jawline, and under the eyes for clients. We have seen some fantastic results with the latest collagen boosting fillers.

The most popular and safest form of dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally exists in your body, and is incredibly hydrophilic (meaning it attracts water), increasing moisture and hydration levels in the skin. Hyaluronic fillers are also our fillers of choice at Elite Aesthetics because they are biodegradable, malleable and unlike other filler materials, are easy to remove. They are also less prone to complications when injected by a trained professional than other filler types, which may require surgical removal.

The results of a single dermal filler treatment can be seen instantly and can last from around 6 to 18 months, depending on the filler and site of injection, after which time the filler dissolves naturally in the body and the treated areas revert back to their pretreatment state. Areas with less muscle movement such as the temples, jawline or tear troughs tend to last longer than areas that move more, like the cheeks, nose and lips, which will need repeat treatments more often to maintain their results.
