With the aid of dermal fillers, wrinkles are filled in, lines are softened, and facial volume is restored. This procedure typically lasts under an hour, and there is little need for recovery. Depending on the type of filler used and the area, results can be apparent immediately and can endure for months or even years.
    Hyaluronic acid is the most widely used dermal filler because it is found in some fluids and tissues in the body.
    Hyaluronic acid, a molecule that resembles gel and is found naturally in the body, keeps our skin hydrated, plump, and youthful looking. Before organically integrating into the body, most hyaluronic acid fillers last between 6 and 12 months.
