HOW DERMAL FILLERS WORK
The Dermal Fillers we use at The Harley Clinic are an injectable gel. The gel is made from a sugar that your body produces naturally called Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is found in connective tissue and is one of the structural elements, along with collagen and elastin.
As we age, our face loses Hyaluronic Acid and therefore volume or structure in our skin. Dermal Fillers replace the lost Hyaluronic Acid giving your skin the volume it has lost. At The Harley Clinic we always look for the best treatment outcome for our clients. We have done our job if your family and friends don’t know you have had a treatment. We choose the Dermal Filler brands we use because of four key reasons:
We use hyaluronic acid fillers because hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the body and is a structural component of the skin. Our dermal fillers are specifically engineered to break down slower than the natural hyaluronic acid in your skin.
Although complications are rare, if there was a problem we can reverse the treatment by injecting an enzyme that breaks down the injected hyaluronic acid, thus neutralising the problem.
We only use reputable brands at The Harley Clinic, which have been on the market for several years and have a long history of delivering quality results.
All of the dermal fillers used at The Harley Clinic are FDA approved, giving you peace of mind & quality assurance. All Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are regulated by the FDA.
