At My Botique, we understand the importance of healthy skin. As most of you are aware, Dermal Fillers can enhance your skin by increasing its volume and definition as well as restoring your youthful glow. So how does it work?
In order to help your understanding of each of the processes, one area of dermal science has been broken down to aid you in making the right choices for your anti-aging concerns.
Made up of naturally forming sugar proteins called Hyaluronic acid, or HA’s, dermal fillers have become the answer for modern cosmetic medicine. The HA’s are moisture binding ingredients that are stored within stabilized gels to keep them in place at the point of injection, adding volume and structure. By surrounding and nourishing the stretchy collagen fibers within the skin, HA’s restore the skin’s shape after being stretched.
Anti-ageing is beyond just augmentation; it is a holistic face approach towards healthy, youthful looking skin. As we age, skin moisture levels can significantly drop causing the skin to lose its elasticity and therefore exposing signs of ageing. With its unique ability to attract and retain moisture (1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid) Hyaluronic acid plays a critical role in skin health. Our skin is made up of 64% water, meaning the ability to retain this vital ingredient is key in maintaining a youthful and healthy appearance.
Hyaluronic Acid Replacement Therapy (HART) replaces lost HA to improve hydration whilst adding volume and definition, reducing wrinkles and providing a complete upper and lower face-lift. Treatments can be tailored to satisfy your specific demands such as maximize or limit volume.
Why is it important?
You wouldn’t think twice about replacing calcium for healthy bones, so why not HA for healthy skin? Water is a vital nutrient for the life of our skin cells and lack of hydration can cause dry, tight and flaky skin.
