Have you noticed a difference in your face and are starting to consider procedures to add volume? A popular treatment to gain facial volume is to have hyaluronic acid filler injected under your skin. You may already be familiar with hyaluronic acid because it is an ingredient in many skincare items. It is also a naturally occurring substance in our skin, eyes, and connective tissues. It helps tissues retain water so they can stay hydrated and lubricated, and continue to function optimally. However, as you age, your body starts producing less hyaluronic acid, which contributes to the development of facial wrinkles, dryness, and sagging skin.
Hyaluronic acid filler is a non-invasive treatment that can add hyaluronic acid back into your skin and help to reverse common signs of aging. There are many brands of filler, but all of them are capable of creating healthier and younger-looking skin. Here are the main reasons why hyaluronic fillers are the most popular choice for adding volume:
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Hyaluronic acid filler can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping the skin. It also strengthens your natural skin barriers which can defend and reduce damage caused by excessive sun exposure, pollution, and the side effects of smoking cigarettes.
Increases Skin Resilience
If you have a decent amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin, your skin becomes more effective at shielding itself against environmental pollutants such as secondhand smoke and vehicle exhaust. Filler can also protect the skin against harmful ingredients in low-quality face products that would typically strip away the defensive barrier of your skin.
Increases Skin Hydration
Since hyaluronic acid is a humectant it attracts water and allows it to bind to hydrogen. The acid will bring in moisture and keep your skin hydrated, youthful and healthy looking. Dry climates, swimming, and sun exposure can cause skin dryness which dermal fillers can help aid.
Increases Skin Cell Regeneration
If your skin is more hydrated it improves your skin resilience and the regeneration of skin cells. Fresh skin cells can make your skin look younger, healthier, and more vibrant while reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Increases Skin Tightness
Hyaluronic acid does not directly tighten skin like elastin, however, it can contribute to the appearance of tighter skin by adding hydration. Your skin can appear saggy and droopy when you lose elastin as you age, but hyaluronic acid fillers can plump the skin to make it appear firmer and tighter.
Age spots and other skin discoloration can often be improved with regular exfoliation and increased skin cell turnover. However, hyaluronic acid fillers can also help repair discoloration by promoting skin cell turnover. Dermal filler products that contain both hyaluronic acid and vitamin C are especially effective at reducing discoloration.
