Hyaluronic Acid Fillers: Why These are the Safest and Most Effective Dermal Fillers

At 8 West Clinic, we use the safest, most effective, and highest quality of products in each of our services; this means that we use Hyaluronic Acid fillers for our dermal fillers, which includes brand names like Emervel, Perlane, and Restylane. Are you interested in having dermal fillers? Here's why Hyaluronic Acid fillers are the safest and most effective dermal fillers on the market.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

The brand names we use at 8 West Cosmetic, namely Emervel, Perlane, and Restylane, are all grouped into a category of dermal fillers known as Hyaluronic Acid Fillers, sometimes simply "HA Fillers." Other brand names that fall under this category include Puragen, Elevess, and Juvederm, to name a few.

So, what is Hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body, found specifically in soft connective tissues as well as the fluid surrounding your eyes and in certain cartilage and joint fluids. Hyaluronic acid is extracted and reformulated to now become one of the most popular kinds of injectable dermal fillers; it is also used as an injectable treatment for aching joints in those with arthritis.

The Benefits of HA Fillers

Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, and not derived from animal sources, it acts like an inflated cushion when it is injected, supporting facial structures and tissues that have lost volume or elasticity as a part of the aging process. Because wrinkles and volume loss are the result of a loss of hyaluronic acid due to aging, it makes sense that HA Dermal Fillers would be the appropriate solution.

HA fillers are injected into the deep layers of the skin to replace missing HA, which also brings water to the surface of the skin, making you look more fresh and youthful with supple skin.

Hyaluronic acid based products are considered one of the safest in dermal fillers, particularly those made from synthesized HA, which is made in bacteria instead of using human or animal tissue. While some people may experience temporary redness or swelling after having HA Dermal Fillers, there are very few allergic reactions association with hyaluronic acid, thereby improving its safety.

Hyaluronic acid injections also have better longevity than collagen injections, typically lasting four to six months, during which time you experience fewer wrinkles and plumper, more youthful skin.

And last but not least, HA fillers are actually reversible! This means that, if the patient is unhappy with their results, another injection called Hyaluronidase can be given to the patient, which dissolves the HA fillers and effectively removes the changes made with the dermal filler injections.
