What are dermal fillers?
At around the age of 25, important changes begin to take place. Your body stops producing collagen and elastin, (two proteins that work together to keep tissue firm and skin elastic), and the existing collagen in the body begins to break down.
With these proteins diminishing, typical signs of ageing (fine ones and wrinkles, sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, thin lips) begin to show.

Majority of dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule that attracts and binds water in the skin), and work in harmony with the body’s remaining collagen and elastin, supporting these all-important proteins to give skin a more full and youthful appearance.

How long do dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers can last anywhere between 6 to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used, how your body processes the filler, and the way that it is injected. Dr. Kassir offers the latest dermal fillers, and during your consultation he will discuss which fillers are right for you.
