What actually is a dermal filler?

A dermal filler is a substance that is injected into the skin to help aid appearance. It can be used to fight signs of ageing, or might just be used to help accentuate your already beautiful features!

For those who have begun to see the signs of ageing, dermal filler is a great non-invasive way to bring back your youthful glow. It’s reported that we begin to lose collagen and elastin as young as twenty-five, which are the two key components to keeping tissue tight and elastic. When these two elements deplete it’s likely patients will begin to see the effects; the appearance of lines and wrinkles, hollowing cheeks, and deep set eyes.

At Stangrove Court Dental Practice we are proud to offer our patients Juvederm which is a hyaluronic acid based product. This substance works with the body to help add to and support the body’s skin and give back a more youthful appearance.

Do dermal fillers Kent last?

When you visit us at the practice, based on your consultation and the area you are looking to treat, the practitioner will be able to give you a clearer indication of what results to expect and how long they will last for.
