As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, as cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful component. The skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix itself. When we are born, we have plentiful amounts of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body, but as we get older this store of HA diminishes, leaving the skin less well supported, and so lines and wrinkles develop.
What does the treatment engage?
During the dermal filler treatment the (HA) is injected through a tiny needle. The procedure takes around 30-45 minutes and patients can expect to notice the effects for as long as 18 months after treatment. As with any injection, there can be some temporary bruising or swelling.
What results shall I expect?
Results are subtle, and will leave anyone around you to believe that you are simply looking your best and great for your years.
“ I've been to Dr. Farrugia many times for Botox. He was able to put me at ease and listened carefully to what I was hoping the outcome to be. He is always willing to adjust the procedure each time if required. I feel like I look younger in a natural way. I couldn't be more pleased Thank you St. Marys Clinic.” Mary Deguara.
