Fillers are generally used to improve volume and help in contouring the face. They also enhance the hydration of the skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component of the skin which helps to maintain its smoothness and elasticity. It is hydrophilic (absorbs water) and hence intensifies the moisturising effect and the suppleness of the skin. Since it is completely natural, allergic reactions are extremely rare. Different viscosities of hyaluronic acid are used, dependant on the depth of area being treated; lighter ones for more superficial static lines and the heavier ones to fill deep volume loss.
Areas for Treatment Include:
- Tear trough
- Nasolabial folds (vertical lines running from the ends of the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Smoker’s lines (small vertical lines above the lips)
- Marionette lines (vertically below the corners of the mouth, giving it a downturned look)
- Deep lines of forehead
