What are dermal fillers?
Heber Davis specialises in the injection of “natural” dermal fillers. These smooth gels are identical to the padding that occurs naturally in our skin. As skin ages, this padding gradually breaks down, resulting in skin sag, wrinkles and a loss of volume. Dermal fillers simply replace what has been lost, naturally and instantly, leaving you looking smoother and refreshed and more attractive.
Because these dermal fillers are natural gels, they are biocompatible, non permanent, rarely cause reactions and can be easily dissolved if required.
How do dermal fillers treat wrinkles?
Dermal fillers erase lines and wrinkles instantly by replacing the padding that age, stress, smoking, poor diet, etc has worn away. Microinjections of a specially soft, pliant dermal filler, placed superficially in the skin, gently lifts and fills fine lines and wrinkles, invisibly and instantly blending them with the surrounding skin in just a few minutes and with little or no downtime.
An important bonus is that dermal fillers actually prevent your lines and wrinkles from becoming any deeper. Whilst your dermal filler is in place, all the stresses and strains that caused your wrinkles in the first place, wear out your dermal filler, sparing your wrinkle and preventing it from deepening.
Dermal fillers are the treatment of choice for those with fine lines and wrinkles that are present at rest, that is, those that are there when you look in the mirror without making any facial expressions. Lines and wrinkles that respond well include lip lines or “smoker’s lines”, those vertical lines running into the lip that allow lipstick to “bleed”, lines across the cheeks, lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth and fine lines around the eyes and on the forehead. Subtle reduction in facial lines contributes to an overall impression of youth and vitality.
In some areas dermal fillers are often used in conjunction with muscle relaxants for better and longer lasting results.
