Hyaluronic Acid Filler injections are stabilized hyaluronic acids used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth or shape facial contours. The mentioned filler has been approved for the cosmetic treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and soft tissue depressions. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found within various tissues in our body. It is a molecule that strongly binds with water and it is therefore used as an ingredient of quality skin creams. It is a material that is contained in various soft tissues. Hyaluronic acid is biocompatible; the injections are customised for every patient, depending on his or her particular needs. These cannot stop the process of aging. It can however, temporarily diminish the look of wrinkles and soft tissue depressions. The injections may be performed as a singular procedure, in combination with other treatments such as Dysport, Chemical Peeling, Mesotherapy, PRP, laser resurfacing procedures. They may require topical anesthetic to diminish discomfort. Soft tissue fillers can produce temporary swelling, redness, and needle marks, haematomas which resolve after a few days time. The outcome and the amount of material that is spent, and therefore the patients satisfaction, depends on the technique and the type of hyaluronic acid. Continuing treatments are necessary in order to maintain the effect of filler over time. The filler once injected will be slowly absorbed and last in the body for a period of 6-8 months up to maximum 12 months.
