The Dermal Filler used at SkinDiva is JUVEDERM, A high quality Hyaluronic Acid!
Hyaluronic acid ( HA) is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body.
JUVEDERM is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). JUVEDERM products are a smooth consistency gel, compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a granular consistency. Juvederm products are developed using the Hylacross technology to allow a smoother, malleable gel. Hyaluronic acid works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume and a smoother appearance to skin. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.
With HA, there is a less risk of allergic reaction as it’s a sugar that is naturally produced by the body.
After all is said and done, the major issue for fillers is one of longevity, followed by risk of migration and lumping, and ultimately the skill of the injector in placing the right amount of filler in exactly the right place. This is an artist technique, please research your injector before proceeding with this treatment.
