Dermal Fillers

Face and lip fillers

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component found in human skin, but its levels decrease as the skin matures. Dermal fillers play a crucial role in reintroducing volume, firmness, and support to areas where it has been lost due to the ageing process.

At Harbour Dental, we are delighted to offer our patients the transformative power of dermal fillers to enhance their natural beauty and achieve a radiant, youthful appearance. Our skilled practitioners are experts in administering dermal fillers, helping you achieve your aesthetic goals with precision and care.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable gels made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture, contributing to skin hydration and volume. Dermal fillers are designed to add volume, plumpness, and smoothness to areas that have lost volume or have developed fine lines and wrinkles due to the agring process.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Smooths Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Dermal fillers effectively target and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, smile lines, and marionette lines, giving your skin a more youthful and rejuvenated look.

Restores Facial Volume: As we age, we naturally lose facial volume, leading to a tired and sunken appearance. Dermal fillers restore lost volume, replenishing the contours of your face and creating a youthful fullness.

Enhances Lip Volume: Dermal fillers can be used to plump and enhance the lips, giving you a fuller and more attractive smile.

Minimises Under-Eye Circles: Dark circles and hollowness under the eyes can make you appear fatigued. Dermal fillers can brighten and lift the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of tiredness.

Non-Surgical and Minimal Downtime: Dermal filler treatments are non-surgical, minimally invasive, and require little to no downtime. You can resume your daily activities almost immediately.

If you are looking to restore youthful contours, smooth away wrinkles, or enhance your features, dermal fillers may be the ideal solution for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and discover the transformative benefits of dermal fillers.
