The Hyaluronic Acid itself is a substance produced by the human body, mainly in the joints, eye and skin. It attracts water, so the skin will be more hydrated and voluminous after application, which is an interesting effect because during the aging process the fat, muscles, bones, and skin get thinner and accentuate the aging signs. The hyaluronic acid injections work providing immediate results in these regions and the skin look younger and brighter.

There are many brands that produce this type of fillers and although the molecule is always the same, the manufacturer might change the particle size, consistency and viscosity of the gel and concentration of hyaluronic acid. These differences can change the result, so it is important to find the right one for you.

It can be applied in many different skin regions, from face, to hands to ears and the efficacy might change depending on the applied area, so an appointment with a reliable professional is important to guarantee that the procedure will be done safely and with the right products.

On the face, the most common applications are on the cheek and lips to provide greater volume and on the jawline to contour and define the region. It will improve the wrinkles and lines, leaving them in a smoother appearance. Another very interesting medical application of this substance is to fill scars and dark circles under the eyes.
