As we age our skin quality is affected due to a decline in elastin, collagen and natural moisture. The ageing process can leave our skin lacking in volume with increased dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.  Dermal fillers are a popular treatment used to give a more youthful and refreshed look by adding volume, reducing jowls, fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers can also simply create more defined and prominent cheekbones.

Dermal facial fillers are hyaluronic acid injectable treatments. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. Iwona’s lip filler of choice is Juvederm which is a sterile gel consisting of non-animal, stabilised hyaluronic acid and a local anaesthetic called lidocaine, which will make to treatment more comfortable.
