Injectable fillers are used for filling wrinkles, correcting facial lines and rejuvenating the skin.
The main component of filler injections is the hyaluronic acid, which is present in all living organisms. Its task is to bind water, restore the tone and elasticity of the skin. Due to this fillers produce an instant lifting effect, refreshing the looks, adding more volume and tone to the skin. The result is very smooth and even. The ampoule also contains an anaesthetic agent (lidocaine), making the injection nearly painless.
The treatment is fast (15-30 min.) and the results last for 12-18 months. The rehabilitation does not take much time and is easy; generally, you can go to work and use make-up on the next day after the procedure.
