Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body’s collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning, smiling and smoking also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the formation of these furrows.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural molecule found in the body which aids in the formation of collagen. Because of this there is essentially no chance of an allergic reaction. It is biodegradable and broken down by your body naturally. Dermal fillers provide a dramatic non-surgical treatment for improving the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. They can also help restore volume and fullness to the skin, plump up lips, and fill in scars. The cosmetic results are visible immediately, bestowing you with a more youthful and invigorated look.
What is the treatment like?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected in small amounts under your skin to fill creases, lines, wrinkles or folds. It is also injected around the lip area to create volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. In order to optimize your comfort, the treatment area may be anesthetized with a topical cream or anesthetic block. Treatment results are immediately evident.
Are there any adverse events of injections?
As with any form of cosmetic injectable, there is a chance of bruising, mild redness at injection site, mild tenderness, and swelling. If you experience any of the adverse events noted, they normally resolve within 2 weeks post treatment. You may resume all normal activities following treatment.
How long do the results last?
Depending on many factors, such as your lifestyle, age, area treated and genetics your results may last as long as six months to one year. You may require a touch up treatment 2 to 4 weeks after the first treatment to achieve your desired result. When the effect of the treatment begins to diminish, you can replenish the area as needed.
