Revitalise flat and lifeless skin with a dermal filler treatment
As skin ages, it begins to lose its natural plumpness and springiness. This can lead to skin that looks flat, tired and lifeless. However, do not panic! There are effective ways to combat this, and one the most effective is the use dermal fillers to revitalise your facial skin.
Basically, dermal fillers plump your skin in the same way you might plump a pillow or cushion, leaving the skin on your face looking fuller and more youthful. As the tissue becomes plumper, the skin across it tightens, which helps to smooth out superficial wrinkles and fine lines.
Human skin is made up of two main layers – the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis sits on the top and is where you will find superficial imperfections and other minor marks. Beneath this layer is the dermis, which is thicker and contains more of the skin’s organic components – such as blood capillaries, hair follicles, and collagen-producing cells.
As we age, these cells become less and less effective at producing collagen, and the epidermal layer becomes increasingly thin, leading to an aged effect. Dermal fillers are injected into the dermal layer to help promote the production of collagen and to make the skin appear plumper.
