Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin, and is used to fill in wrinkled areas. Thanks to its ability to store moisture, hyaluronic acid is responsible for giving skin a plump, hydrated look. Once injected it can add to the natural plumping action, or replenish your body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as you age.
One of the reasons injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are increasingly popular is their ability to add volume and decrease wrinkles with a single visit. Results typically last up to six months to a year, depending on the location of the injection. Research suggests that HA injections may stimulate collagen production, leading to fresher-looking skin in the long run.
Good filler is invisible. Trout pout and duck lips are a sure-fire sign of filler. But when expertly injected, filler should look natural. “The changes we can make are so subtle that nobody would notice,” Natural, is the goal.
