What are cosmetic fillers/dermal fillers and what can they be used for?
Dermal fillers consist of clear gels which are injected at the dermal layer of the skin and are one of the most popular treatments for filling and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Skinbooster fillers can be used to increase hydration to the skin, particularly the face, neck and hands. They are very useful to smooth fine lines on the forehead and the lower face. Moderate lines over the mouth to chin area and the nose to lip corners can be softened. Cheeks,nose and chins can be remodelled and given more definition to boost your outlook. Scars can be minimised, lips can be defined or enhanced, subtly and naturally.

Why are these treatments so popular nowadays?
Perhaps the appeal of these treatments is in their high safety profile and predictable results, not to mention its immediate effect that makes dermal filler treatments so popular these days. The procedure itself is however more comfortable now than ever before and carries very little or no downtime. Nearly all cosmetic fillers these days include a local anaesthetic pain relief for a more comfortable experience. Allergic testing is not required as the fillers use hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring component of the skin. When injected into the skin , hyaluronic acid volumises, softens and hydrates the skin which will help promote collagen and elastin organisation underneath the skin to give the skin a more youthful texture.
