Hyaluronic acid filler is a natural agent found in all living cells. It is a sugar that attracts and binds water keeping the skin hydrated as well as giving it volume. Dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid include Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Perlane®.
How long do Hyaluronic Acid Fillers last?
The results can vary from several months to over a year or two. Some research shows that repeated injections may help stimulate the body’s own natural production of collagen. That will help reduce the number of lines and wrinkles.
What are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers used for?
Hyaluronic acid fillers can restore a more youthful appearance by filling out wrinkles and skin folds, replacing lost facial volume and sculpting lips to create a more voluptuous appearance and is even used in non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose) procedures.
Am I a candidate for Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?
Often referred to a Liquid Facelift, hyaluronic acid filler treatments will help to improve your appearance temporarily, but it’s not a permanent solution and it won’t stop the aging process. Some candidates use hyaluronic acid fillers to delay the time when a surgical facelift is more appropriate. It’s a great way to see some impressive changes and improvements in your appearance until you’re ready for a permanent surgical option.
