Hyaluronic acid fillers have become increasingly popular over the past several years, allowing non-surgical volume enhancement of the face. HA is a naturally occurring substance and an essential component of our facial tissues which declines over time. Fillers are convenient with virtually no downtime.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to improve many age-related changes:
Augmenting cheeks to enhance their shape, often restoring youthful fullness
Less-noticeable hollow areas under your eyes
Plumping thin lips and smoothing out vertical lines around the edges of the lips
Youthful lips without making your lips bigger
Adding volume and smoothing out the deep creases that run from the nose to the mouth (called nasolabial folds or laugh lines)
Making indented scars from acne or chicken pox more even with surrounding skin
Increasing volume to fill out gauntness in the lower cheek or temple area, which most often occurs due to fat pads shifting beneath the surface of skin.
It is important to choose a Consultant Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon on the Irish Specialist Register for Dermatology or Plastic Surgery who has been fully trained in the proper use of fillers to get the results you want and to avoid complications.
