We do not use permanent fillers here at City Skin. The reason being is that they have a higher risk of infection and granuloma formation (a hard mass produced in reaction to a foreign substance being introduced to the face).

We use non-permanent dermal fillers at Cityskin. The product used in the dermal filler is found naturally in the skin, therefore, the risk of a granuloma is less likely. The other benefit with using non-permanent fillers is that we can use an enzyme to dissolve the filler, if need be.

If you have a permanent filler, we can not inject a non-permanent filler over the top of it, due to a high risk of infection.

I hope that answers your question but please get in touch if you need any more help!
