Filler: Hyaluronic Acid

What are hyaluronic acid injections?

If you want to reduce facial wrinkles and lines, hyaluronic acid may be a good choice as a dermal filler because of its compatibility with the human body. In fact, this substance is found in almost every single living thing. In humans, it acts as a network that transfers essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers.

When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple. In the last few decades, various synthetic forms of hyaluronic acid have been developed and used to correct disorders in the fields of rheumatology, ophthalmology, and wound repair. More recently, synthetic forms of hyaluronic acid are being manufactured for use in face augmentation.

Restylane is a range of facial treatments and products produced by the Swiss biotechnology company Galderma. It specializes in soothing wrinkles, refining contours, regaining facial volume, and rejuvenating your skin by stabilized hyaluronic acid.

Under continuous research and development programs of Galderma, Restylane is the pioneer of stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler and one of the world’s most tested and sought-after hyaluronic acid products today. Its safety and efficacy are clinically proven with extensive data.

How long do hyaluronic acid fillers last?

Hyaluronic acid fillers tend to be the most temporary option, and therefore are often recommended for first-time filler patients. These will typically last from 6 to 18 months. Injections to the lips will wear out a little faster than those to the nasolabial folds.

Is hyaluronic acid filler permanent?

Results are temporary but can often last for more than 1 year; repeat treatments are necessary to maintain these results. The total cost of treatment will depend on the number of syringes used and the size of the treatment area.

Is hyaluronic acid same as Botox?

However, their mode of action is completely different. Botulinum toxin reduces muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles, whereas hyaluronic acid dermal fillers restore the volume to your face that has been lost due to the ageing process.

What is the best filler for smile lines?

For smile lines, you can opt for hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Sculptra® and Juvéderm Voluma®. These solutions are applied via injection along the crease extending from the nose to the sides of the mouth. They're meant to fill in the creases.
