Most dermal fillers are made of a product called Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a substance normally produced by our body providing fullness and volume. Over time, due to age, gravity and loss of collagen we lose these benefits which is why receiving a HA is filler can restore a more youthful look. When HA is added to the face it acts like a cushion to help support facial structures and tissues. Dermal fillers draw water to the surface of the skin to temporarily correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds providing a fresh appearance.
Another benefit of fillers is the stimulation of collagen which further enhances the results of the fillers. Dermal fillers lasts from 6-12 months depending on the amount used and the thickness/cross linking of the product.
