Facial aging is characterised by thinning of the skin and reduction of its elasticity.
With age advancement there will be a reduction in dermal collagen, Hyaluronic acid elastin which are all important in maintaining skin integrity and elasticity. Moreover factors such as sunlight and smoking accelerate the aging process.
Dermal fillers are mainly containing hyaluronic acid and are used to restore the elasticity of skin, They also fill the wrinkles and create volume for a better look of the skin in certain areas. We provide a wide range of dermal filler injections in our clinic. This includes:
