Filler substances: hyaluronic acid
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance present in the body that has been synthesised for use in aesthetics thanks to its capacity to retain water and keep the skin hydrated and the tissues with a full, plump appearance. It is therefore the basis for many different creams and cosmetic products, as well as the main ingredient in treatment with Skinboosters, without forgetting its consolidated use for many years now as a filler.
With the latter in mind, we administer injections of hyaluronic acid formulated in gels of different consistencies to smooth wrinkles, lessen deep subcutaneous folds and re-establish or increase volume, while stimulating collagen and elastin production (two essential substances to give the skin firmness and texture). The results can be seen immediately, and normally last for 8 to 18 months, depending on the area treated.
Problems treated with filler substances
Hyaluronic acid is one of the most versatile substances in aesthetic medicine and offers several benefits as a filler:
- Revitalises your look: it avoids hollowness in the area below the eyes, improving some kinds of dark circles and “bags”. It also help smooth crow’s feet.
- Promotes your smile: it eliminates asymmetries, improves the proportion between the lower and upper lip, defines the outline of the lips, and increases volume.
- Conceals nasolabial folds, better known as “laugh lines”, which run vertically from the nose to the chin on both sides of the face.
- Models the shape of your face: it treats sunken cheeks and helps reposition volumes that are lost over the years, improving contours.
