HA dermal fillers are the main solutions we use for ‘static lines’ and ‘gravitational folds’. They are injected directly beneath a line or fold to fill the depression it makes in the skin.
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid. It is an important physiological substance that all skin contains naturally. Its key role is to maintain the plumpness and moisture that helps keep the skin surface smooth and lifted, but its level decline with age.
We inject fillers containing transparent hyaluronic acid gel, which over time is broken down by your body’s natural enzymes, just like your natural hyaluronic acid. An injectable substance called Hyaluronidase can dissolve fillers, in case you do not like them.
Fillers can be used for all sorts of lines and wrinkles, plump up thinning lips, enhance or fill in shallow areas on the face, decrease or remove the shadow or wrinkle under the eyes caused by the lower eyelid (tear trough), fill in or soften the look of recessed scars, fill in or soften static wrinkles, especially on the lower face.
Static wrinkles include those around the mouth and along the cheeks. These wrinkles are usually a result of a loss of collagen and elasticity in the skin.
The effect is instantly visible, although there may be some minor swelling and bruising.
Durability depends on the patient, their lifestyle, age and the areas injected.
Dermal Fillers usually last around six to twelve months.
