About Dermal Fillers
Dr. Prager uses dermal fillers such as Juvederm® or Belotero®, which contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is present throughout our bodies, with 50% of it located in the skin. It occurs naturally in the deeper layers of our skin (the dermis), where it helps to keep skin smooth and ‘plump’ through its amazing ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Dermal fillers based on HA are used to replace facial volume, smooth the lines and restore skin elasticity. They can also restore skin tone and texture, and even prevent future ageing.
Modern HA fillers are long lasting, soft and natural. They become silky smooth once absorbed into the skin. Lines are softened and results continue to improve over a period of weeks and months, with the effects lasting between 9 and 24 months. Dr Prager works to regain your youthful proportions by subtly replacing some of the missing volume with dermal fillers around the temple, under-eye, cheek area and lips. This can be done over several sessions. Most importantly, the treatment is safe and no one need know you are having it.
