HYALURONIC ACID FILLERS
Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of the ground substance of normal skin. Aging skin loses hyaluronic acid over time, which can contribute to wrinkling and laxity. Hyaluronic acid fillers do not require allergy testing prior to administration. These products temporarily correct wrinkles and volume loss. Hyaluronic acid fillers are broken down and eliminated completely by the body after 6-12 months, unlike permanent fillers.
SIDE EFFECTS OF HYALURONIC FILLERS:
Bruising is more likely to occur after filler injection if you take drugs that thin your blood or prevent clotting (some blood thinners include aspirin, ibuprofen, coumadin, heparin, Plavix, vitamin, E). If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or under 18, you should not use hyaluronic acid filler products. If you have had herpes before, an injection can cause the herpes to return. Inform your physician so that herpes prophylaxis can be used prior to filler injection.
