What Are Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers?
Restylane, Belotero Balance, and Juvederm Voluma are FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers, which are injected into the skin in order to add volume to areas including lips and nasolabial folds. Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers are used by many plastic surgeons and estheticians to improve the look and feel of the skin. Before injecting HA Dermal Fillers, a complimentary consultation is scheduled to test the sensitivity levels of the skin and choose which filler is the best for your skin type.
The results of these injections can either be temporary or permanent depending on what type of injection you choose. Check out the Results!
- Permanent HA Dermal Fillers — permanent dermal fillers are riskier because if not placed correctly, they can lead to permanent damage among other liabilities.
