One of the age wrinkle treatment and face correction methods is filling substances. Substances identical to those of human organism are injected under the skin. The most frequently used filling substance is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluroic acid is a polysaccharide that is a natural sugar existing in all living organisms. This substance has very important functions such as providing cell multiplication, joint lubricity and skin elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is able to retain volumes of liquid a thousand times bigger than its own and keeps the shape for a very long time after the injection that is why it is the most preferred filling substance that is found in a lot of cosmetic products. As this substance is natural for the body it does not cause allergy, significant side effects and other risks. A successful filling application demands deep knowledge of medicine and this particular technique, detailed knowledge of facial anatomy and the experienced eye of an aesthetician.
Filling substance injections are much more practical compared to surgical interventions. The procedure performed with a mild anesthetic cream application takes 15-30 minutes. This procedure can be applied even during the lunch break as it has no effect on the social life and job of a person. You don't have to wait to see the result of the procedure as it shows up during the substance injection. Besides, there is no need in any special care after the procedure.
