How do dermal fillers work?
Injectable fillers usually consist of a crystal-clear gel, which is produced biotechnologically using stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid and water.

Once injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid works to restore the body’s natural supply by revitalizing and plumping the skin, instantly eradicating lines and wrinkles to provide a softer look.
What does the procedure involve?
A small amount of filler is injected into the skin using a very fine needle. Once the treatment is complete, the results can be seen instantly. Lines will be smoothed away or lips and cheeks will appear fuller. The treatment is usually very quick and often takes less than 30 minutes.
Most of the new dermal filler products now contain Hyaluronic Acid gels, which contain local anaesthetic. This will minimize pain considerably less than previous filler products.
Of course, everyone experiences pain at different levels and those who are more sensitive to pain may feel mild discomfort. Therefore a local anaesthetic cream can be applied to the surface of the skin to numb the area.
