Injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) is a type of temporary
dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally through
out the body, with the highest concentrations in the
joints, eyes, and skin.
In the skin hyaluronic acid attracts
water, which allows the skin to become more hydrated.
As we age, the fat, muscles, bone, and skin in our face
begins to thin.
This loss of volume leads to either a
sunken or sagging appearance of the face, fine lines,
wrinkles, folds, and thin lips.
Injectable HA is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds, and to create structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are seen immediately.
