Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are used to replenish lost volume in the soft tissues or augment tissues to improve facial shape, contours or definition. At LTS we use Teosyal, a hyaluronic acid product which replaces your body’s natural hyaluronic acid. Teosyal is designed to support the skin in every move, while helping to preserve the vitality and softness of your face.

Dermal fillers are highly bio-compatible with the skin, so adverse reactions are minimal. Each dermal filler has specific advantages in different areas of the face so the most suitable product for you will be tailored to your aims.
