What Is Derma Veil?
Derma Veil is an injection containing a collagen stimulator, namely Glycolic and Polylactic Acids. It is designed to diminish skin damage due to the aging process, sickness and/or sun exposure. Derma Veil improves the flexibility and hydration of the skin, restoring its volume and diminishing the imperfections of the outer skin, such as wrinkles and scars.
How Is Derma Veil Used?
Derma Veil is a product which is injected to treat skin damage due to the ageing process, sickness and/or the effects of the enviroment. It requires a minimum of two sessions separated by 3 weeks and in some cases a fourth or fifth session may be needed.
The product is incorporaded as a hydrophillic matrix composed of Glycolic and Polylactic acids. Both acids are inmmunological inert, biocompatible, absorbable and degrade by hydrolysis.

How many treatment sessions do I require to achieve the result?
