When you inject the hyaluronic acid into your patient’s skin, the particles hold moisture, restoring volume and hydration to aging tissue. This volume helps support the skin, restoring a fuller, more youthful shape to facial features. In addition to its ability to hydrate and add volume, hyaluronic acid can also stimulate collagen growth, strengthening, and rejuvenating aging skin. The other ingredient in this filler, lidocaine, acts as an anesthetic during treatment, reducing needle pain.
The results of a treatment can last about 18 months after one touch-up treatment after nine months.
