Aging causes many changes and often, the first change we see are the changes to our face and more specifically our skin. Some of these changes are a result of environmental influences such as sun exposure and smoking; others are attributable to our repetitive natural expressions (including squinting, smiling, and frowning). Hormonal influences and genetics also play a key role in how we age.
One of the most significant factors affecting the appearance of aged skin is the loss of a natural occurring substance in our body known as hyaluronic acid and collagen. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for maintaining moisture, volume and elasticity to the skin, providing us with a youthful appearance. Over time, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases, leaving the skin with a dull, volume depleted and wrinkled appearance.
Although we cannot change our age or our genetics, we certainly can look our very best at any age. Dr. Hong can help to reverse the appearance of these natural aging processes with the use of injectable hyaluronic acid, also commonly referred to as dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a key element in aiding in the moisture/hydration, elasticity and facial volume of the skin.
Hyaluronic acid comes in a gel form and once injected, acts like our own hyaluronic acid and provides instant results, and does not require any downtime. The results of dermal filler can last up to one year*, and be maintained for up to three years.**
