Hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar (polysaccharide) that is present in body tissues, such as in skin and cartilage. It is able to combine with water and swell when in gel form, causing a smoothing/filling effect. In some cases, hyaluronic acid used in dermal fillers is chemically modified (crosslinked) to make it last longer in the body.
Hyaluronic acid can effectively treat the:
- Smile lines
- Facial wrinkles & creases
- Forehead lines
- Sunken temples
- Hollow cheeks
- Nasolabial folds
- Under eye hollows
- Thin lips
- Sagging chin / jaw
- Marionette lines
- Aged hands
- Loss of volume
