A youthful face is characterised by smooth textures and prominent cheeks. As we age and constant exposure to the environment, changes to the facial contour and texture occurs resulting in dry skin texture, the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and loss of volume.
Thankfully, dermal fillers have been available for decades as a treatment to improve the lower half of the face by decreasing the appearance of lines around the mouth and enhancing lips and cheeks volume.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Currently, there are multiple soft tissue fillers available in the market. The most significant is the one made up of Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, most especially found in the skin tissues. Its main feature is hydration and anti-ageing.
Dermal fillers made up of hyaluronic acid temporarily volumize targeted areas such as the lips and cheeks. It can last from a year to a year and a half.
The popularity of Hyaluronic Acid may be attributed to the availability of a substance that can counteract the effect of Hyaluronic Acid. So, in cases where the patient wants the hyaluronic acid removed, the injection of a sufficient amount of Hyaluronidase is enough to breakdown the filler.
Result and Side Effects
The result after the injection of dermal fillers is immediate. However, temporary side effects may occur like pinpoint bruising and mild swelling on the injection site. These side effects resolve after a couple of hours to a few days.
