We only use high quality fillers from the Juvéderm® range. We feel that these are the best available fillers, which have a natural, non-gritty feel. The latest in this range have an engineered formulation to give fillers lasting 12 months rather than the usual 6 seen elsewhere, which provides our customers with good value for money as less treatments are needed to maintain the effect. As with the ‘botox’, we advise you to check the quality of the fillers offered by other providers.
How do fillers work?
Our skin contains a compound called hyaluronic acid (HA), which keeps water in our tissues and also links to the collagen, which provides the structure to our soft tissues. HA is continually being produced and broken down by our bodies. As we age, our ability to produce HA reduces although the breaking down continues at the same rate, leading to reduced elasticity and volume of our skin, which is particularly noticeable in the face. Juvéderm® fillers contain a form of HA which has been modified to make it resistant to breakdown, lasting approximately 12 months. The filler attracts water to the area, restoring volume and eliminating creases, as well as integrating with collagen so that it remains in the area injected.
