The decision to get the hyaluronic acid dermal filler treatment for the first time can be intimating and overwhelming - be it for your face or body.

Consequently, it is crucial that you know everything about the treatment before getting it done for yourself - the procedure, preparation, possible risks, and aftercare.

What possible risks could appear after the treatment? What dermal filler pre and post-care instructions you must follow for the most effective results.

What you must know about Hyaluronic Acid

First of all, each individual has different characteristics and features; the same happens with the body - its diversity depends on many factors such as hormonal composition and metabolism. Thus, many factors can have a strong impact on the lack of hydration on your skin. Smoking, a sedentary lifestyle, pollution, poor diet, or insufficient water can contribute to the early appearance of wrinkles.

Aging is inevitable and as time goes by, our organism loses hyaluronic acid and other fundamental components of our dermis such as collagen and elastin. All these elements are responsible for maintaining the elasticity and hydration of our skin and although we can find numerous creams containing hyaluronic acid in their composition, it is more effective when injected as a filler.

Therefore, the volume and number of injections needed for your treatment is only specific to you and determined by a specialized doctor. There are a lot of choices when it comes to Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers.

HYAcorp's product range includes fillers for the face as well as for the body and they will help you achieve your desired results. Treatments of HYAcorp include body transformation, skin quality improvement, contouring, and rejuvenation. 

How long does Hyaluronic Acid last?

The duration of Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers is one of the most popular questions among patients or those interested in getting a dermal filler treatment.

The simple answer is: it depends. 

Considering the patient’s metabolism, habits, injection technique of the doctor, area of the body, and the type and amount of filler applied, the length of the results of HA dermal fillers will vary. HYAcorp face fillers can last from 6 months to 12 months, while HYAcorp Body Fillers can last for upto 24 months.
