A healthy lifestyle, staying hydrated, spa treatments and using medical grade skincare can help to prevent the signs of premature aging. Hyaluronic dermal fillers are a great anti-aging solution that offer the ability to turn back the hands of time, while also giving you a refreshed look you’ll fall in love with.
Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers
JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are FDA-approved dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our skin and acts to draw water to promote hydration, which is why it is advertised in the majority of moisturizers. Because our body has hyaluronic acid in it, they are very safe to use!
As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, contributing to wrinkles, sagging skin and dryness. Fillers can be used to restore what you naturally once had or enhance features that you wish you had more of.
When used topically, hyaluronic acid fillers are considered a non-invasive anti-aging treatment. Injectable hyaluronic acid fillers are minimally invasive, making them a great option for individuals looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, plump lips or restore skin volume.
Which Hyaluronic Acid Filler is Right for Me?
There are different types of hyaluronic acid fillers for different goals. You will work with your VIO Med Spa provider to determine the best injectable filler and treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals.
The Allergan Juvéderm® family of fillers is a leading collection of hyaluronic acid fillers to temporarily lift & contour cheeks, smooth lines, or plump lips by temporarily restoring your skin’s volume with a modified form of hyaluronic acid for patients over the age of 21.
