Hyaluronic Acid Injections in Miami, FL
Hyaluronic Acid Facial Injections
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance already in our body. It hydrates the skin by holding in water. It helps to plump the skin and softens fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid compliments other dermal fillers (Restylane, Juvederm & radiesse) between treatments.
Dermal fillers are primarily used to enhance and correct concerns in the midface. Hyaluronic Acid is the most common substance used for all ages looking to plump and fill the lips, smile lines, or mimic bone. Most of the products last 6-12 months and with Dr. Sosa’s personal technique there is very little to no bruising and swelling.
There is a range of thicknesses to the texture of the hyaluronic acid gel-like products. Soft and smooth textures are great for the lips and under the eyes. Medium/standard textures are very flexible and can be used in the smile lines. Thicker fillers are reserved to add volume to the cheeks, cheekbones, or jawline and tend to be longer-lasting.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is found in the body. High concentrations of hyaluronic acids are found in the joints, eyes, and skin. Hyaluronic acid works as lubricants and shock absorbers in the joints. It aids joints movement by allowing the joints to move freely and properly. Hyaluronic acid attracts water in the skin and allows the skin to become more hydrated.
The level of hyaluronic acid in the body significantly reduces as individuals grow older. Low level of hyaluronic acid can lead to different medical conditions including skin dehydration and loss of volume which causes wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin, and facial folds.
Hyaluronic acid injection can be used as a form of dermal filler to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, facial folds, saggy cheeks, loss of volume of the face and lips. It can be used to increase volume in areas of the face that have lost volume, making the face to look more structured, smooth and firm.
