The majority of dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is a substance present in most tissues of the body. Injected into the skin it binds with water and therefore keeps it hydrated and more youthful in appearance and texture.
There are several commercial preparations of Hyaluronic Acid in the market and Dr. Schwarz has used them for nearly two decades. These injectables come in combination with a local anesthetic and the procedure, therefore, is painless.
The injection can be administered practically in all areas of the face the commonest being the folds that run from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth, the lines between the brows, the cheeks and for enhancement of the lips.
The goal of the injection is to give a natural result making the patient appear more youthful. They are frequently combined with Botox.
