Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. You can find concentrated amounts in your soft connective tissue, in the fluid around your eyes, in cartilage and joint fluid and skin tissue. It can be extracted and reformulated, and is now a popular injectable filler in the beauty world.
The properties of this acid reduce the fine lines and wrinkles that appear on your face as you age. For this reason, some fillers are made from hyaluronic acid. These fillers enhance your face’s plumpness by redeeming the volume and elasticity lost in the aging process. After a procedure, your skin will appear younger and rejuvenated.
Over the years, many brands have created different hyaluronic acid fillers for deep wrinkles and superficial fine lines. Some of the brand names include:
- Juvederm family from Allergan: Juvederm Ultra, Voluma, Vollbellar.
- Restylane family from Galderma: Resteline, Restylane lift, Restylsne Silk, Refine, Define.
- Belatero from Merz.
