Non-surgical cosmetic procedures like Hyaluronic acid gel fillers (also known as dermal fillers) are used to improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles, folds, lines and acne scars, as well as to enhance your lips by restoring youthful fullness.
Hyaluronic acid gel fillers are also excellent for re-contouring other facial areas such as the chin, cheeks and tear troughs (area under lower eyelid).
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our body that attracts and binds to water (hydrophilic), which provides structure and contour. This, along with other naturally occurring skin cell components, diminishes as we age.
There are two main strategies to keep in mind when deciding on the right fillers for you: immediate volume and stimulatory effect. Certain fillers will give you immediate volume while others are designed to support and stimulate growth of your own collagen overtime. Most patients reach optimal results by combining the various injectables to create their desired outcome.
