As we grow older, our skin dulls and loses a lot of its youthful texture and volume. Dermal fillers, available at Southlands Smile Clinic, erases the damaging effects of time by plumping up fine lines, wrinkles and scars and reducing their visibility. They also plump up thinning lips and tighten sagging skin, restoring more youth to your appearance. Unlike some cosmetic treatments, your facial muscles are not temporarily paralysed afterwards, so you can enjoy your youthful new appearance right away.
The majority of dermal fillers are modified forms of hyaluronic acid (HA). Its ability to bind water up to 1000 times its volume gives HA the ability to plump up and restore lost volume to sagging skin. Hypoallergenic and specially formulated to resist degradation, HA dermal fillers have a long-lasting aesthetic effect.
