Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
The most popular class of dermal fillers is based on hyaluronic acid (HA), a sugar compound that is naturally found in human skin. By binding water molecules, these products add volume under the skin to smooth wrinkles and folds, plump lips, and soften depressed scars. These products work best on nasolabial folds, smile lines, and drooping corners of the mouth. The effects of HA usually last between 4-6 months.
