About the procedure
Dermal fillers, also known as face fillers, are a type of facial aesthetic treatment. They are a popular choice for regaining plump, youthful and smoother skin. Fillers are injected into the skin to effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles by re-volumising and hydrating the area, and evening out depressions in the skin.
As we age, the volume in certain areas of our face diminishes, resulting in fine wrinkles, deep lines and a ‘sunken’ appearance. This is caused by the body’s decreased ability to produce collagen and elastin which make skin strong, resilient and flexible.
Unlike anti-wrinkle injections (Botox) which stops the muscles in your face from moving in a way that causes wrinkles, dermal fillers plump the area below the wrinkles to smooth them create a more youthful look.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Dermal fillers for women are a popular facial treatment as a natural substance is used in the product. Hyaluronic acid is found in many areas of the body, including skin, joints and eyeballs. At Asthetica, the dermal filler injections we use are hyaluronic acid which is one the best anti-ageing products for mature skin. A common misconception is that ‘acid’ will strip the skin and cause irritation; however, it is the key to boosting moisture and volume in the skin.
