Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in the body. It helps transferring essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells. Facial ageing and wrinkles appear because of the loss of Hyaluronic acid, and fillers injections are an effective way to rejuvenate the face.
Hyaluronic acid fillers smoothes facial skin folds and wrinkles without the need for surgical procedures. They also stimulate the production of collagen which enhances the structure and elasticity of the skin.
In addition to serve as fillers for wrinkles and skin folds, hyaluronic acid can also be used to sculpt the lips, restore facial contours, treat scars, improve the aesthetic appearance, and rehydrate the skin to make it smooth and glow.
Hyaluronic acid preparations are available as injectable gels. They can be used on the face, neck, and hands to re-hydrate and rejuvenate the skin.
