What are fillers made from? 

Dermal filler is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid. This acid is a naturally occurring substance in skin and is known for its incredible ability to attract water and bind moisture. 

This is a key part of what keeps skin looking youthful – and the reason why hyaluronic acid is praised for its plumping, volume-enhancing properties. 

When injected as a dermal filler, it instantly adds fullness to the area, helping to enhance lips and smooth away deep lines, folds and wrinkles in the face. 

At Skinsmiths, only qualified nurses perform this treatment so you can rest assured you're in safe hands. In addition, we provide free consultations so you can learn more about the treatment, what your options are and what kind of results you can expect.
