I am in my early fifties and about to become a grandmother, and I really need a little work done! I want it to look and be natural. Is it true that hyaluronic acid used in this kind of work promotes more collagen production?

The most commonly used fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in the body in soft tissues and joints, and is gradually broken down by the human body. Although some manufacturers have promised long-term effects including collagen production, the evidence is limited, and a four to six month effect should be expected. The choice of filler also includes the size of the filler particles and the technique used. Fillers are generally a good way of rejuvenating deeper ageing lines, although depending on the signs of facial aging they can be effectively combined with Botox for an additional effect.
