Young and healthy skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring molecule. Much like a sponge, its primary function is to bind and absorb water, which creates volume in the face. In this way, Hyaluronic acid can be thought of as the body’s internal moisturizer. But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of Hyaluronic acid in your skin. The lack of Hyaluronic acid causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those parentheses lines around your nose and mouth.
Dermal Fillers works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to diminish wrinkles and nasolabial folds. Using dermal fillers is a safe and effective way to replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.
Facial Fillers help to replace lost collagen for areas such as glabellar frowns, nasolabial folds, augmentation of chin, forehead or cheekbones and augmentation of depressed/sunken cheeks. It is proven also extremely useful to form a higher nose bridge, giving a sharper nose and corrections of acne scars.
Facial Fillers are also used for volume augmentation and enhancement of the lips. Using a fine needle, your healthcare professional injects under the skin to fill the soft tissue of the dermis. This adds volume and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and nasolabial folds instantly.
The treatment is an easy and fast procedure; it takes around 20 minutes, depending on the treated area. It is relatively painless but patients might experience slight redness, swelling for a few minutes immediately after treatment. Patients should avoid extreme heat, massaging, rubbing in the treated area 2-3 days after the injection.
The result will last up to 18 months depending on the individual conditions.
As Dermal Fillers is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime (and the results are instant!). So you can get right back to your daily routine.
