Hydrates and plumps the skin, restoring its natural youthfulness and vitality.
Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in human skin, which has water binding properties which hydrate and plump the skin. As we age we make less hyaluronic acid which results in the skin becoming dehydrated, less elastic and prone to lines and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, which are made into a gel which is broken down slowly by the body. They produce volume, collagen, support and hydration to the area injected. Modern fillers also contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, which reduces any discomfort felt during the procedure.
At New You Medispa we only use established and trusted products.
