Dermal fillers help to hydrate and strengthen your skin using ingredients like collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Typically, a local anaesthetic is used before your treatment to avoid discomfort from the injection. Once this is applied, the dermal filler is injected directly into your skin using a fine needle. You might feel a small prick as the needle enters your skin, but typically nothing more.
The depth of the injection will vary based on your age and skin. Typically, finer wrinkles that are surface level only will only need a very shallow injection. Deep wrinkles, common in older patients, require a slightly deeper injection to impact deeper layers of your skin.
