MEDIFIL is an injectable filler that can be used to replace lost facial volume due to ageing or sickness. MEDIFIL UK fillers include Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic chemical that increases collagen formation. To give a more youthful appearance, it can be used to address deep wrinkles, creases, and folds.
MEDIFIL injections help to retain the skin’s suppleness by replacing lost collagen. To get the greatest potential results, the treatment is provided by a series of tiny injections at varying levels of thickness. MEDIFIL treatments help to plump up hollowed-out parts of the face and cheeks that have lost volume as a result of ageing. MEDIFIL can be used 5minutes after mixing, where as some other similar products (e.g Sculptra) need a minimum of 12hrs.
What is MEDIFIL made from?
MEDFIL is made from Poly-L-lactic acid a synthetic polymer manufactured from lactic acid it does not require a skin test.
ThePoly-L-lactic acid is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, however the results (new collagen growth) can last for up to 3 to 4 years.
MEDIFIL can be used for:
* Replacing lost volume caused by ageing
* Smooth lines and wrinkles in the cheeks and chin
* Deep folds and wrinkles
* Volume defects e.g. sunken cheeks and temples
* Contour enhancement
* Improving skin texture
How does MEDIFIL work?

How many treatments will I need?
