Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is found naturally throughout the body. It is present in high concentrations in the skin where it provides structure and attracts water. This keeps the skin hydrated and looking young. With age, your skin begins to thin and looks sunken or sagging with the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers can help reduce the signs of aging and give your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
As we grow older, the skin, fat, bones, and muscles in our faces become thinner and start to sag due to the normal aging process. There is reduced collagen and elastin in the skin, causing it to become less dense and resilient. The changes associated with the aging process lead to the formation of moderate to severe lines, folds, wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. They also cause volume loss requiring soft tissue augmentation. Fillers like Radiesse can improve the appearance of moderate to severe skin aging by reducing, repairing, and even reversing some of the changes associated with the aging process. In this article, we give you the lowdown on calcium hydroxylapatite CaHA, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved dermal filler that can take the years off your face.
