Skin Fillings

The elastic and flashy outlook of the young skin is formed by the collagen, elastine tendons and hyaluronic acid. As the skin grows old, the structure of these substances spoils and they decrease in amount. Thus, the skin starts to hang, collapse or wrinkle. The lost structures are put back in their place by using the filling substances and a younger and healthier outlook is achieved.

The "hyaluronic acid" (HA), which is used as a filling material has been used since the 1990s and many safe applications were made across the world. The hyaluronic acid, which is contained naturally in the human and animal body, combines with water and provides moisture, stretch and fullness in the skin. During the aging, the HA production in the skin decreases and elasticity and moisture is lost.
