Dermal fillers restore fullness to the face and contribute to soft-tissue expansion to fill the contour defects associated with ageing. Not only do dermal fillers act as a tissue substitute but they also stimulate fibroblast activity, collagen synthesis, and soft-tissue growth.There are various types of dermal fillers and the most commonly used ones are temporary hyaluronic acid and semi-permanent agents (calcium hydroxylapatite).
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are temporary fillers, and are the most commonly used because of their unique elastic and high water-retention properties which allows them to fill grooves effectively. Hyaluronic acid is a natural biodegradable component of our own skin and contributes to skin hydration, wound repair and regeneration, fibroblast proliferation and hence collagen production.

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are completely safe and reversible. There may be redness, swelling and bruising but this tends to be mild and temporary. As with all injections, there is a risk of infection, but this is very rare. We at The British Aesthetic Bar only work with medical professionals to ensure the highest possible safety standards.
