What are HA fillers and what are they used for?

The HA filler is a way to restore volume in the body and face. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the human body promoting tissue growth and retaining water which gives a healthy and soft feel to the skin. HA fillers are medically safe and are a stimulus to collagen growth in the body. Mostly used for face, the demand of HA fillers has gradually increased for body augmentation. HA fillers for face ensure hydration in the skin and give it an upliftment.

How to avoid unnatural, unaesthetic and exaggerated effects of fillers?

Unnatural or exaggerated effects of fillers can be avoided as long as the doctor has complete knowledge of not just the body but also the product that they are using. The products vary in their composition and the aesthetic practitioner should know how to use the products for a particular treatment.

What does the procedure entail?

HA dermal fillers are a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment, making it possible to perform the procedure in less than an hour with low impact on the body. The injections of macromolecular HA used in the body fillers are not painful and the patients can immediately go back to their day to day activities, though it is advised not to partake in exercising, playing sports for about ten days. It has been established from nearly all cases of previous treatments that the result of the fillers is very natural and the filling does not cause any discomfort to the patient or exaggerated and fake look.

How long does it take to see results?

Half of the results are visible immediately and the final one after a couple of weeks. HA recalls water from the surrounding tissues and it expands until the required volume is accomplished. Usually, the filling lasts about 12 months but in my experience BioScience products lasts up to 2 years. However the lifestyle, the amount of HA filler, different body types and exercise can be factors that affect the product duration.

What are the key benefits of having treatments done with BioScience products?

BioScience is a reputed manufacturer of HA dermal fillers with a quality process. BioScience products are in conformity with the health, safety, and environmental protection standards of Europe (CE mark). The brand has manufactured products to cater to every need of the face and body.

What are the common side effects of the fillers?

The side effects emerging from the procedure are very few and consist mainly of transitory pain such as redness and swelling immediately after the treatment. Within the next four days there is usually no evidence of any side effects. It is a common reaction among every brand of fillers.

Are there any sustainable initiatives or environment-friendly efforts that you are working on or have worked on for the brand?

The HA that is used by BioScience is produced by the fermentation of bacteria instead of the HA that is derived from animal sources.

What are other treatments BioScience provides?

BioScience is a family of products used in general surgery, urology, dentistry, orthopedics, gynecology in addition to its CE certified aesthetic range of products. The German brand provides innovative solutions to its stakeholders and its patented technology assures a high rate of accuracy and quality control in all its productions. In my professional opinion, the fillers of BioScience namely HYAcorp and Genefill can be considered one of the best choices for doctors and patients. The company is also set to launch a new product called ‘Hyaprof’, a set of HA fillers with its own cosmetic range as aftercare.
