Hyaluronic Acid Injection Treatment



Hyaluronic Acid Injection Treatment

Hyaluronic acid is a kind of synthetic filler. There are many different manufacturers on the market with different sizes of hyaluronic acid, which can be used to fill local depressions and static lines on the face according to individual needs. The biggest advantage of hyaluronic acid is that it can be directly injected in the outpatient clinic, without going to the operating room, and there is almost no recovery period after treatment, and the effect can be seen immediately; however, the disadvantage is that most of the 1-2 grades of hyaluronic acid are absorbed by the human body, so it will take several years After repeated injections.
