Hyaluronic acid (HA), is a clear substance that is naturally produced by your body with its main function being retaining water and keeping your tissues lubricated. Hyaluronic acid filler can attract up to 1000 times its weight in water, for rejuvenating, plumping, or moisturising effects, depending on the product used.
However, hyaluronic acid filler also appeals to patients seeking filler for correction treatments to address concerns like a bump on the nose.
Does hyaluronic acid filler really work?
Whilst hyaluronic acid can be applied to the face through creams, dermal fillers can penetrate the dermis and cause immediate semi-permanent results, to address concerns like crow’s feet and thin lips. Injectable fillers temporarily create plumpness and volume to the skin as hyaluronic acid is a water holding molecule that improves hydration, maintains elasticity, and stimulates the production of collagen.
Visible results like skin firmness and reduced wrinkles are visible immediately, with the optimal outcome apparent within a month. No downtime is required, but some patients may experience some swelling and bruising after treatment.
How long do hyaluronic acid fillers last?
Hyaluronic acid filler is a semi-permanent procedure with patients needing top-up treatments to ensure consistent results. The treatment takes around 30-45 minutes with patients noticing a difference lasting between 12 – 24 months after treatment.
No two people are the same which is why our highly skilled team of clinicians will work with you on a bespoke treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
