Hyaluronic Fillers

Although wrinkles pose no health issues, staring into the mirror and seeing them take over your face can be a hard thing to process. If you’re looking to reverse the aging process and limit the development of wrinkles, our team at Bourhill plastic surgery will be there to help. We can utilize hyaluronic fillers to help you achieve the younger look you’ve been searching for.

What Are Hyaluronic Fillers

Hyaluronic acid is the most popular kind of wrinkle fillers. These fillers are injected directly into the wrinkles to help smoothen and straighten the skin. How long they work to eliminate your winkles depends on a patient to patient basis. Some will find that the results last for numerous months, while others may reap the benefits for nearly two years. Research shows that hyaluronic fillers work by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen. Over time, fewer filler injections are needed to receive the desired results. 

Potential Side Effects

Before coming in for an appointment to have hyaluronic fillers injected, our team wants to warn of the side effects that can accompany this wrinkle treatment. While we will do everything in our power to mitigate the chances of this happening, sometimes, they are unavoidable. Example of the potential side effects include:

  • Redness.
  • Bruising.
  • Swelling.
  • Tiny bumps under the injection area.
