I would like to get injectable fillers in my face

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi on December 22, 2010

I would like to get injectable fillers in my face. I would like to plump up both my lips and my nasolabial folds which have gotten quite pronounced. I would like hyaluronic acid because the reports that I read indicate it is longer lasting than collagen. Is hyaluronic acid appropriate for both areas?

Many of the modern day fillers contain hyaluronic acid. The reason being this is a substance that is present in the natural body, it has very good results and a proven safety record. Collagen fillers are used infrequently these days as they are contain animal products that may cause reactions such as allergies. Plumping up your lips and naso-labial folds are common areas to use hyaluronic acid to reduce the deep folds that all of us slowly get over time, but with injectable fillers, we can help delay these deep folds.
