The use of dermal fillers injections for anti-aging facial treatments are some of the most popular over the world. Millions of procedures are carried out regularly to relax lines and wrinkles and replace lost volume to acheive a more youthful and fresh appearence.
The latest dermal fillers are predominately hyaluronic acid(HA). HA is a polysaccharide(essentially a large sugar!) which is naturally occuring in connective tissue in our bodies with 50% of it found in our skin. It retains moisture and one molecule alone can hold up to 1000 times it own weight in water.
As we age the production of HA slows and can result in facial volume loss. Dermal fillers can help to temporary replace lost volume whilst also drawing moisture to the molecules, increasing hydration and restoring a youthful look.
Results can last between 4-18 months depending on area treated and product used. Regular top ups are advised every 4-6 months to maintain optimum results.
