Hyaluronic acid is a natural skin component. It acts like a sponge and retains large quantities of water to keep the skin plumped and soft. In the filler syringes, HA comes in the form of a gel which is cross linked and biodegradable. This means the product is more resistant to biological breakdown and last longer than non-corss linked products, but in time the product is resorbed by the normal physiological processes. Usually one can expect HA fillers to be effective for 9 - 36 months but this is dependantant on the type of HA filler used and the location that the product is placed.
HA fillers are used to:
