Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are composed of a naturally occurring molecule known as hyaluronic acid designed to provide structure and volume to the tissues.

The results can be extremely natural looking and effective immediately in addressing facial wrinkles, folds and scars to provide a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

As we age, our facial tissues begin to see structure and volume changes. The skin becomes thinner and less hydrated, and the fat beneath our skin can diminish in some areas and gather in others.

A practitioner with an understanding of these ageing changes can use hyaluronic acid “facial fillers” to build structure and volume in the areas which need it. Often this begins with the mid face at the cheeks, and then in the lower face at the chin and jawline. This type of treatment is sometimes known as “facial sculpting” or “volumising” and requires a particular type of filler to maintain desired the lifting effects.

Moreover, fillers can also be used in the skin to boost hydration, plump up fines lines and wrinkles and even improve the appearance of scars. These “dermal fillers” are great for treatment areas such as around the mouth “smokers lines” or “lipstick lines” or in the “nose to mouth lines,” for example.

Natural results are obtained by selecting the correct filler for the treatment area, with careful placement from an experienced practitioner.


Refrain from touching or rubbing the filled area for six hours after your treatment is complete. Avoid subjecting the filled area to extremely high or low temperatures. Be gentle when washing the filled area of your face.

Cautions / Contraindications

You should not have fillers if you have severe allergies, are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dermal fillers safe?

Yes, as long as they are administered by a medical professional. The hyaluronic gel is completely natural, and over time, the filler will slowly dissolve, causing no harm to you.
