The benefits of treatment with dermal fillers

For many years, people who wanted to reverse or slow down the signs of ageing – wrinkles, lines, hollows, folds and such like on the facial skin – had only one option, and that was plastic surgery. Expensive, daunting, and requiring time off from work or socialising to recover, this was not the ideal treatment for everybody.

Dermal fillers naturally stimulate collagen production in areas that have lost elasticity, creating younger, firmer looking skin. Dentists can also use dermal fillers to augment the lips in cases of high lip lines or to correct uneven lips.
