Dermal fillers) are substances injected into your face. They can be used to restore or add volume or hydrate.
Fillers are not permanent and the body will break them down over a period of time. That length of time will depend on things like the type of filler the place of the injection but it will be somewhere between 6 and 18 months.
Most dermal fillers used in the UK contain a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our bodies where it helps things move smoothly (think joints like a well-oiled machine), helps keep things hydrated – a quarter teaspoon of it holds about 1.5 gallons of water- and it makes your skin flexible. It is often used in moisturisers, lotions and serums.
Juvéderm® is the world’s leading brand of hyaluronic acid facial filler and is manufactured by US company Allergan – the same producer of Botox.
Juvéderm has different products for different areas – so your practitioner will get to know your goals and explain treatment according to your needs and advise whether these products are right for you.
Having dermal fillers is usually safe if performed by an experienced and suitably qualified practitioner.
At Brooklyn Greenspa we have always been about natural beauty and supporting our clients to have their best skin at any age. Unfortunately, fillers have gained bad publicity due to what, in our opinion, is misuse / overuse. We believe in helping people look fresher and Kimberley, our nurse practitioner, will only give out safe and ethical advice.
