As we age, our bodies begin to break down collagen and leave our faces looking deflated and more wrinkled.
Where Botox works on the muscles, fillers work in tissues under the skin by plumping up areas of lost volume.
The fillers we use are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a substance found naturally in the skin, meaning our bodies process it as they would with natural HA.
We tend to use Juvéderm fillers, as the global leaders, but other brands include Restylane, Teosyal, Princess.
Fillers come in different consistencies to create different results, so you may need different fillers for different areas.
Fillers last between 6-12 months, again depending on your body’s individual metabolism.
