What are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance used in a number of dermal fillers and in certain skincare products. It also has medicalapplications, such as pain relief for arthritic joints, and other uses. Hyaluronic acid is compatible with your skin and body. In fact, HA occurs naturally inside your body, particularly in connective tissue and in your eyes.

If you are interested in Naples hyaluronic acid injectables, experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña can determine whether a dermal filler can achieve the cosmetic result you want.

Hyaluronic Acid Cosmetic Treatments

The following dermal fillers used at Dr. Peña's practice contain hyaluronic acid:

  • Juvederm
  • Belotero Balance
  • Restylane®
  • Perlane

These brands provide rejuvenation results quickly, and results can last for several months to a year, depending on the specific filler.

When used as the active ingredient in a dermal filler, hyaluronic acid fills in deep folds and wrinkles in various areas of your face. It can restore lost facial volume, and it can be used for lip augmentation.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

The use of hyaluronic acid in cosmetic treatments has many benefits, including:

  • Restores fuller, smoother skin
  • Long-lasting results
  • Naturally occurs in your body
  • Compatible with your body

Hyaluronic acid binds with water molecules, so it can prevent dry, aged skin and rejuvenate fresher, moisturized skin.

Hyaluronic acid is compatible with your body. HA occurs naturally in our bodies and other living organisms, and it can be derived from non-animal sources. Over time, HA will break down and be harmlessly absorbed by your body, at which point you may require re-treatment with dermal fillers.
