Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. It binds water and can act as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body such as eyes and joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin.
By boosting the skin's supply of HYALURONIC ACID, facial fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look.
Facial filler injections provide an easy way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth the skin and give a more youthful appearance. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 9 months. Facial filler injections can give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression. As your face changes over time, facial fillers allow you to control you looks subtly as you age.
Facial fillers can be used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, and revitalise the skin.

One of the great advantages of facial filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual's skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age.

You do have to get touched up if you plan on maintaining your look, but not as often as you would think. It all depends on the kind of filler and where it was injected. Most patients usually need a lip touch-up after about 1-2 years.
Marionette lines are lines that run down from the corners of the mouth that often make an individual look unhappy or sad.

These are often associated with dry skin that can be dull looking and a loss of skin elasticity and firmness.These can be beautifully treated with the fillers.
