Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are synthetically made products that mimic normal connective tissue in order to provide volume that is either lost through age or to enhance volume.

Yesterdays Fillers:

Consisted of liquid silicone, wax and animal collagen. Due to many documented problems with these older fillers they have been abandoned for newer safer ones with a better benefit to side effect profile. While collagen may still be used it involves a series of pre-injection testing to ensure you don’t react to the animal product.

Todays Fillers:

Are made up of synthetically produced sugars, which are naturally present in joints and the deeper layers of our skin and tissue. These sugars are made with variations in cross linkage to give products of differing consistency. This enables fine or deep wrinkles to be addressed and volume restoration possible.

Fillers are injected by Dr Jack Zoumaras to rejuvenate and revitalize the face. The dermal fillers can be used to fill wrinkles, replace the volume lost with facial aging, improve facial angles and augment the lips.

  • Fine wrinkles around the eye or mouth
