These are gels made of a natural substance call Hyaluronic Acid which is actually a sugar based molecule. There are only small amounts of it present in the overall body but it is an important part of the matrix of the skin (along with collagen) and also in joints and in the eye. It acts as a natural shock absorber and as it attracts over 1000 molecules of water per molecule of Hyaluronic Acid is deeply hydrating, giving volume and lift to the skin. It also promotes the production of collagen within the skin.
As we age, we lose Hyaluronic Acid causing skin to become loose, thin and dehydrated leading to folds and wrinkles eg nose to mouth lines and droppy mouth corners. Dermal Fillers are sterile, non-animal based synthetic versions of Hyaluronic Acid which when injected into the skin replace the lost volume, giving lift, suppleness and hydration. They are so versatile that they can be used to not only lift skin and improve folds but for shaping and contouring the face, replacing lost volume, sculpting checks and chin and enhancing the lips.
Unlike Permanent Fillers which can cause problems, Hyaluronic Acid fillers are temporary and reversible if ever needed using a natural enzyme called Hyaluronidase
