Hyaluronic Acid Wrinkle fillers can be used to “volumize,” plump and lift cheeks, chins, jawlines, and temples. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are also commonly used for filling out thin lips, plumping and rejuvenating sagging hands.
- What Can Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers Do?
Injectable Hyaluronic Acid wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful appearance for a fraction of the cost of what surgical procedures such as, a traditional facelift, eyelid surgery, etc may cost. Most Hyaluronic Acid filler can fill in hollow areas of the face as well as lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes. Results can last from 4 months to up to 24 months.
Injectable Hyaluronic Acid wrinkle fillers, unlike Botox injections which relaxes the muscle beneath a wrinkle, Hyaluronic Acids fills in the line, crease, or area. In some cases one of several different substances may be used. This process can make problem areas nearly disappear.
