Dermal fillers have a variety of uses including diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, plumping thin lips, enhancing facial contours and softening facial creases.
Dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers, are highly effective at smoothing out deep lines, such as nose to mouth lines to restore a softer and more young-looking appearance.

In Selby, Dermal fillers are substance/gels injected beneath the skin’s surface to smooth wrinkles and add volume and contour. The products are composed of stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) which occurs naturally in the cells of the skin. It works by drawing in water and therefore augmenting the skin, thus reducing the wrinkle treated. It is by no means permanent and is totally biodegradable. Depending on what type of dermal fillers, results can last between one to two years.
Fillers are very safe and have been used for over a decade. The most popular brand of dermal filler has sold over 20 million syringes.
