Hyaluronic acid is a molecular substance that naturally already exists in the human body. It is technically a type of carbohydrate polymer that is found within the cells of the muscles, skins, and tendons of humans and other mammals. Specifically, hyaluronic acid is a crucial, main part of the extracellular matrix of cells found in the human body, especially in the dermis, which is the dense, inner layer of skin that exists directly underneath the top layer of skin (the epidermis).
Hyaluronic acid acts kind of like a sponge- its chief purpose is to bind with water molecules, effectively “absorbing” and retaining water. This innate nature of hyaluronic acid is what gives younger people a youthful, hydrated, full look about their faces. As people get older, the amount of hyaluronic acid in skin and tissue naturally gets depleted from the face- due to the effects of time, aging, and environmental factors- catalyzing the formation of wrinkles and fine lines as well as creating a thinner, more gaunt look about the face.
The nurse or the doctor will inject the dermal filler into prearranged injection sites on the face. Although patients report that dermal fillers feel like mild pinpricks that are relatively painless and require no anesthesia, some patients may need to have a numbing anesthetic cream to the treatment areas in order to minimize pain.
The treatment normally takes about 20 minutes and results are immediate but optimal results may take up to a week.
Recovery from dermal fillers is very quick, most patients recover completely from their dermal procedures in about seven days or less. Dermal filler treatments are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning patients can go home right after their procedures.
It is recommended that patients take it easy for the first twenty-four hours, refraining from consuming alcohol, participating in strenuous exercise, or being out in the sun for an excessive amount of time.
It is typical for patients to experience slight redness or swelling on and around the injection site which should dissipate within a few days. Some itching sensations may be experienced by some patients. Patients should place an icepack on treatment site to reduce swelling.
