What Are HA Fillers and How Do They Work?

Perhaps you have a friend who’s looking very good these days, and you found out that her secret is a regimen of dermal fillers. Or, you’re curious about your options for hanging on to that more youthful look for as long as you can. Whatever the case, you want to learn more about dermal fillers and why they’re the number two minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States.

You’ve come to the right place. The skilled group here at Aesthetic Assets, including Pam Andow, Stacey Molina, Tamara Kaye, and Natallie Swain, is a team of cosmetic artists, and some of our favorite tools are dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid (HA).

Here, we explore the many benefits of HA fillers and how they can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Why HA excels as a filler

As the name suggests, a dermal filler is a substance that can add volume to your skin. Instead of introducing something foreign into your body, many fillers rely on HA, which is a gooey substance that’s found all over your body.

For example, your eyes are full of HA and your joints rely on the substance for smooth gliding. In your skin, HA is responsible for holding onto moisture, which is what keeps your skin supple and flexible.

To give you an idea about its moisture-trapping capabilities, a quarter teaspoon of HA can hold up to one and half gallons of water.

So, given that your body readily accepts HA and its amazing moisture-retaining powers, it makes good sense to turn to HA to add volume to your skin.


Where dermal fillers can work their magic

We use dermal fillers to accomplish a number of goals, such as:



We can even use dermal fillers to smooth out the skin on your hands if they’re starting to show their age.


Making dermal fillers a part of your regimen

There are several reasons why our clients love HA dermal fillers. First, your results are immediate — you walk out with your cosmetic goals achieved. Second, these results can last from 6-18 months, depending upon how quickly your body processes the HA. Whenever your results start to fade, however, you can come back to see us for a quick-and-easy round of injections.

We also use only the best fillers on the market, including Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Versa®, which have long track records of satisfying clients, not to mention approval from the FDA.
