What it Is: Dermal fillers are a comprised of hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component of the skin with high moisturizing capacities. It can retain up to 1000 times its weight in water thus keeping the skin plump and soft. The amount of hyaluronic acid in the dermis gradually decreases as we get older. Consequently, the skin becomes dry and fragile and wrinkles start appearing. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to add volume to cheeks and lips and to fill in deeper wrinkles. Superficial injections efficiently hydrate the skin and revive its glow. Deeper injections fill wrinkles and create volume.
Benefits: The results can usually be seen immediately. As the hyaluronic acid diffuses through your skin, on the surface, it increases the skin’s hydration, softness and suppleness. On a deeper level, it fills the gaps between cells, smoothes the wrinkles and recreates lost volumes.
