What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule that is also naturally present in our skin to keep it plump and hydrated.

When injected into the skin in the form of a gel it helps to add volume and decrease wrinkles.

It also assists in the replenishment of your body's own hyaluronic acid and collagen leading to fresher, firmer skin.

Belotero dermal fillers are the most advanced dermal fillers on the market and integrate seamlessly into your skin once injected, which is why we love them at Face to Face.

How long does it last?

Individual results may vary,  and also depend on the type and thickness of filler we use.  Results generally last 6 months to 2 years.
