What are dermal fillers?
As we age, our skin changes and we lose hydration as well as facial fat. Our natural skin elasticity reduces due to the degradation of collagen and our skin becomes more fragile. Because of these natural skin changes, over time the natural volume of your youthful skin begins to diminish, and wrinkles and folds start to form. The more mobile facial areas are the first to be affected by this natural ageing process. Skin will eventually begin to sag, and “expressive” wrinkles will start to appear, which are more difficult to smooth out.
Dermal fillers are a safe and effective procedure to help smooth out problem areas and tackle signs of skin ageing.
At SkinCraft Aesthetics we offer dermal fillers to improve the appearance of:
Nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
A lack of jawline definition and jowl softening
Deep folds and wrinkles
What are lip fillers?

What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural according substance that is produced by the body. It transfers essential nutrients from the bloodstream to the skin cells, while bringing in hydration and adding volume to the skin.
Aqualyx Fat Dissolve
What is Aqualyx?
Fat Dissolve is an injection technique designed to reduce or eliminate smaller, localized fat deposits. Fat dissolving technology uses a few small injections into areas where you wish to see lasting results. The active ingredient of this medication induces a process called lipolysis, where the fat cells rupture and die. This process begins with it breaking down the fat cell wall, releasing the fatty acid that is stored within. Then the body's lymphatic system removes the fatty liquid through the venous system, where it is then processed in the same way as fatty foods are digested and the fat is dissolved and excreted naturally.
Aqualyx contains the substance deoxycholic acid, a secondary bile acid. With the assistance of bacteria our body can produce this acid in the liver in order to aid the digestion of fat.
A professor first developed a synthetic variant. The active substance locks on to the fat cell walls and starts to operate, resulting in the cell wall becoming unstable and releasing the fatty acid that is stored within. Cell residue is removed by the body’s defence and the non-attached fatty acids are metabolised and converted into energy. This is a form of injection lipolysis, lipotherapy or intralipotherapy.
How does it work?
Fat Dissolve is a procedure that’s approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to dissolve fatty deposits from the body. A specially formulated compound of natural acids is injected into the targeted area and goes to work breaking down the fat. After the fat is disassembled, it is naturally secreted from the body permanently. New fat will never take the place of deposits removed by Fat Dissolve technology.
Is fat dissolving safe?
Fat dissolving is very safe, with full CE and FDA approval.
