Dermal fillers treatment is an essential aspect of facial rejuvenation. Previously, animal and human collagen were used as soft tissue fillers but are now replaced by Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a significant component of the skin and is involved in tissue regeneration and repair.
HA fillers have gained popularity because of its proven safety protocol and effective solution for augmentation and rehydration of the lips and other parts of the face.
How does hyaluronic acid filler work?
As a result of the loss of the body’s integrity to produce more fibroblasts, collagen and elastin, water depletion occurs in the skin leading to drier and more fragile skin. Likewise, overlying fat pads weaken.
HA fillers help moisturise and volumise the lips because of its hydrating characteristic. It attracts water and therefore achieves the hydrating effect for facial rejuvenation.
How long does hyaluronic acid fillers last?
Injectable fillers last from six months to a year. So, a treatment or two every year is sufficient to maintain rejuvenation.
Is hyaluronic acid safe to inject?
HA fillers are safe to use and are FDA-approved as soft tissue fillers.
Can I remove my HA fillers?
Yes. The availability of an enzyme (Hyaluronidase) to dissolve HA fillers has made them famous and preferred by most plastic surgeons.
Are there any side effects?
Just like any treatment involving injections, pinpoint bruising and minimal redness may occur on the injection site.
