As we age we are not able to create as much hyaluronic acid as our body needs. The gradual reduction as well as changes in fat within the complex structure of our faces results in changes to facial volume, decreases in hydration and elasticity as well as an increase in skin laxity. Lines and wrinkles and hollows appear as the volume is lost and jowls and superficial fat deposits appear when the underlying structure can not longer support the upper layer.
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid. They effectively treat lines and wrinkles by binding to water in the skin, and can plump, hydrate and increase volume in certain areas of the face. This helps rejuvenate your skin and enhance your natural beauty. Dr Jessica Prior offers treatments for the lips, around the mouth, nose-to-mouth lines, marionette lines, tear troughs (under eye) and cheeks.
Dermal fillers are injected by needle or cannula to the correct position to give you a natural subtle treatment replacing volume which has been depleted and returning proportion and symmetry to the face. It is important to see a medically qualified practitioner for this treatment to ensure the safe injection and management of results.
