Dermal fillers, are made of a substance that occurs naturally in the human body called Hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the skin, which gives the skin its elasticity and tone by attracting and attaching to water molecules. As we age, our skin produces less HA which causes it to lose its elasticity, become more dry and more prone to forming wrinkles.

What does the treatment involve?
The treatment itself can take between 20-30 minutes depending on how many areas are being treated. The filler is injected into the skin using a fine needle or cannula and the area massaged to give a smooth finish. You may experience some discomfort during the procedure however there is some anaesthetic in each syringe of filler and an anaesthetic cream will also be applied to the areas to be injected for that extra comfort.
Is the treatment safe?
As with any injectable procedure, they are medical procedures so it is important to choose a skilled medical professional who is experienced, has a good knowledge of the anatomy of the areas to be injected and also has an artistic eye. In order to best serve our patient’s needs and ensure their safety, our injectable treatments are performed only by doctors. Dr Simi’s surgical training, her experience as an anatomy teacher and 12 years medical experience make her ideal to provide you these treatments safely.
