Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan found in the dermis. It draws water into the skin giving it volume and also binds collagen and elastic fibers into a supportive and protective matrix that gives the skin its structure.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers help in restoring the volume of the face non surgically, fill out folds and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. They are safe and effective, biocompatible, non-immunogenic, easy to distribute and store, and should require no allergy testing.
The procedure takes 30 minutes, there is no downtime involved and the patient can get back to their home and resume routine activities immediately after the procedure.
