Yes. Hyaluronic Acid can be dissolved with small injections of an enzyme called hyaluronidase.  


Filler is an art.  Poorly placed filler or too much filler can make you look unnatural.  The  key to looking natural is to only trust your procedure to a skilled injector and to not overdo it.  Filler can only do so much.  For the best overall result it is best to use a combination of treatments instead of filler alone.
There are many different types of dermal fillers and many manufacturers.  Skinpossible only uses filler that is made from Hyaluronic Acid which is a naturally-occurring substance in our skin (Juvederm™, Restylane™, Teosyal™).  The products we use are all derived from plants, not animal products.  Other fillers classified as semi-permanent or permanent can be made from Collagen (Zyplast™/Zyderm™) or from synthetic products such as calcium hydroxyapapite (Radiesse™).  Fillers can even be made, fully or in part, from acrylics or plastics or even silicone.  Skinpossible will not use synthetic fillers and will not do fillers for you if you have had certain products previously injected (Bioaclamide™, Dermalive™, Dermadeep™,Beauticall™,Artecol™, Artesense™).  As a matter of interest regarding synthetic permanent fillers, that is what happened to Priscilla Presley.  


The answer is YES IT CAN! As we age we lose volume in our hands.  Dermal fillers can be used to restore the volume to make hands appear more youthful.  The procedure is quick and painless.
Filler can fill deep wrinkles but there are more effective and affordable solutions to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.  To stop excessive animation of the face that causes wrinkles to appear, Botox is the treatment of choice.  To reduce or erase fine lines CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is the best choice.  Other options exist for getting rid of wrinkles as well.  If you are considering a filler treatment perhaps you would benefit from a consultation first to be sure you are investing in the solutions that are right for you.
Ultherapy and dermal fillers are completely different.  Fillers may help slow down the loss of collagen, but Ultherapy can replace collagen already lost.  Ultherapy tightens and lifts skin to stimulate the production of new collagen in the skin.  The collagen producing benefits from Ultherapy can actually make the skin stronger and more toned to restore the skin to a more youthful condition.  Ultherapy can make the skin stronger and thicker but cannot replace lost volume as fillers can.  An Ultherapy treatment may reduce the amount of filler needed, however, so the two in combination complement each other beautifully. 

A combination of Botox and Hyaluronic Acid filler has been found to produce an effect that lasts longer than either modality used separately. Softlift is a name coined by Allergan, the manufacturer of both Botox and Juvederm. The same benefit and effect can be achieved combining Botox with any brand of dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers are purchased by the syringe and the price per syringe varies from product to product.  . The price of your procedure will vary depending on the area to be treated and the amount of product required to achieve the desired result. In any case, when the total price is calculated on the number of months you will benefit from the procedure, it is a small price to pay for the improved confidence and self-esteem you will enjoy.  

Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler is a safe procedure for all skin types and colours.  Some common injection-related reactions such as bruising and swelling might occur.  Erythema, swelling, pain, itching, discoloration or tenderness to the injection site resolve themselves and are short-lived. 


 

Yes! Hyaluronic acid also appears to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that contribute to the skin’s fullness and elasticity. One study found that Hyaluronic acid works on fibroblasts (connective tissue cells) in a way that causes new collagen to form in the skin. This may halt the age and sun-related breakdown of existing collagen.

As with other Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Teosyal and Juvederm will be absorbed naturally by the body over time.  Some people will metatolize it faster than others. The duration of the filling effect varies based on the facial areas treated, the thickness of the product used, and other factors such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle and age. We lose Hyaluronic Acid faster if we spend a lot of time in the sun.  The result lasts longer in areas less affected by animation.  When used to plump up a scar the result will last longer than when used around the mouth, for example, where there is much more movement. Timely touch-up and follow-up treatment will add to the duration. Results from fillers generally last from 6 months and for periods up to 2 years in most people.
