Dermal fillers based on hyaluronic acid gently replace what has been lost in the skin due to the aging process. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar compound that occurs naturally in the human body, aiding in the lubrication of joints and eyes, and moisturizing the skin. Although the body produces this acid naturally, production diminishes with age, and the skin shows signs of sun damage, stress, and other factors. Applying hyaluronic acid in areas where lines and creases have formed fills lines immediately while also encouraging ongoing production for months of beauty.
Beginning at about age 30, men and women lose approximately one teaspoon (that five ml or the equivalent of five syringes) of volume – fat, muscle, bone, and collagen – from the face annually. Your skin doesn’t stretch or get loose; you simply lose some of the infrastructure that keeps it in place. By the time you are 40 or 50 years old, it becomes noticeable. As your face begins to deflate, you look drawn. Lines and wrinkles appear. In these cases, dermal fillers can be a terrific solution.
