How do dermal fillers work?

At Bamboo Aesthetics we use a natural type of dermal filler. These are called hyaluronic acid or HA fillers. Hyaluronic Acid can be found naturally in all animals. It is used as connective tissue and contains both collagen and elastin. When used, these HA fillers adds volume to the skin giving a much smoother and rounded appearance to the patient.

As we begin to age, the amount of hyaluronic acids in the body diminishes. As a result the skin can loose volume which causes wrinkles to form around the mouth as well as indents below the eyes and cheekbones.

The dermal fillers used by Bamboo Aesthetics is biosynthetic which means that it will slowly break down and be absorbed by your body.


Where Can Dermal Fillers Be Used?

Dermal fillers are versatile. There is a huge amount of uses for them. They can help reduce deep lines and wrinkles, fill hollows, enhance sunken cheeks and smooth the contours of your face.

Areas that dermal fillers work great with include; the forehead, eyes, nose, cheeks, tear troughs, jaw lines and the marionette folds. The main aim of the treatment is to provide these areas with much improved hydration and texture of the skin.


Who Can Administer Dermal Filler Treatment?

It is mightily important that you go with a clinical practitioner who is experienced in giving dermal filler treatment. You should also be sure to discuss in detail at a consultation with your practitioner your aims and desired that you want out of the treatment. This will enable for a discussion to take place whereby you can understand the realistic outcome that you are likely to see.


There are situations where to o much dermal filler is injected. This can be at the request of the patient or due to the poor standard of doctor treating the patient. For example, check out this picture of the Olsen twins.
