Dr. Dimitrios Motakis of Toronto, ON understands that when patients start worrying about the signs of aging on the face, they wrongly believe that the only way to combat it is with plastic surgeries such as facelifts. There are many advances in the area of aging in which patients can turn back the hands of time with a professional—without surgery! Our team recommends the benefits of hyaluronic acid fillers, also known as HA fillers or dermal fillers.
What is an HA filler?
HA stands for hyaluronic acid. This is a molecule known for attracting water. When integrated into a gel carrier such as a dermal filler, it can add volume right where it is needed to address the unwanted signs of aging. HA fillers have been used for many years to help both men and women reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face that might be contributing to an older appearance.
What can I expect from HA fillers?
HA fillers are injected quickly and easily in the office of Dr. Dimitrios Motakis. First, patients consult with him to find out if they are a viable candidate. Most patients that fit the requirements for HA fillers are individuals who have mild to moderate folds, lines, and wrinkles on the face. Patients with more severe imperfections of the skin may find that these injectables do not provide them with the results they need, and are better suited for plastic surgery. HA fillers can last many months before reinjection is needed to maintain the results and slow the overall process of aging on the face. Patients considering a permanent solution may want to ask about facelift procedures in the future, when dermal fillers are unable to provide the desired results and loose skin becomes a more prominent issue.
