Hyaluronic acids (HAs) are natural long-chained sugars that serve to volumize and hydrate tissues. HAs may help plump and/or recontour lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles. HAs can also improve the appearance of recessed scars, to give shape to a face to help restore better balance and beauty.
HAs are very helpful in patients with early signs of ageing and are a form of minimally-invasive rejuvenation.
HAs are often not an excellent choice for advanced ageing, this depends on the location and of the underlying issue to be addressed.
Soft tissue fillers cannot achieve the same results as surgery, but may help delay the time when consideration of a face lift becomes appropriate.
We only use HAs because of their resorbable nature. There are many kinds of HAs and each one has a different resorption profile. Slowly, your body absorbs the filler, the metabolism depends on each individual and on the location of the injection.
Some filler treatments are done in repeat sessions a couple of weeks apart.
Injecting fillers into the face is a medical procedure, risks involved are always discussed during the consultation. A filler is a medical device, that even though may be natural, is synthesized by different technologies in labs. This device is injected into living human tissues.
Unfortunately, this treatment is often over-done and trivialized by the public, as well as some medical professionals. Injecting a filler into a face is not trivial and can have serious consequences. Risks are minimized if injected in the right way.
