Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring component that our skin cells produce that gives our skin strength and the ability to bounce-back. When we are younger we have a plentiful supply of hyaluronic acid in our bodies, but as we age our stores of this magic youth-booster diminishes and the skin loses its strength making way for lines and wrinkles to creep in.
Dermal fillers involve the injection of hyaluronic acid through a tiny needle deeper into targeted folds of the skin. It essentially “fills in” areas underneath the skin adding subtle volume to lift and plump. Dermal fillers are an excellent choice for treating a range of fine lines as well as deeper skin depressions.
