Mechanism of action: Hyaluronic acid has the function to retain water, hydrating and giving fullness to the skin and facial contours.
Prescribed for grooves, folds, thin, medium and severe wrinkles, lips and facial contour.
Duration: The treatment with Hyaluronic acid is temporary (8 to 18 month); it helps to improve the contours, as aging is dynamic and not a static process. Also, to avoid undesirable effects which mat occur on a definitive filling.
