How Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers Work
Young, smooth, healthy-looking skin is rich in hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural fluid that lubricates the eyes, joints and skin. As people age, various internal and external factors can reduce the amount of HA in the skin. Among them are time and sunlight. Restylane is a facial filler comprised of refined hyaluronic acid gel is used to treat lips, facial contours and fill in wrinkles as well.
Made of Hyaluronic Acid
A reduction in hyaluronic acid levels causes the skin to lose its volume and structure. This can result in unwanted skin conditions like wrinkles, folds or lines around the nose and mouth. Low Hyaluronic Acid in the skin can also create a loss of volume in the lips and cheeks.
To combat these effects, many people turn to dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm. A consultation with one of our certified dermatologists at the Calabasas Dermatology Center can determine the best treatment choice. There are many types of dermal fillers on the market, temporary and long-term.
