What do fillers contain?

Fillers contain hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule - a substance that we already have naturally in our bodies. When injected into the skin, it provides both moisture and volume and can fill and smooth wrinkles, contour the face and increase volume.

Fillers contain hyaluronic acid

Fillers containing hyaluronic acid are one of the most common types of fillers and are very popular. This type of filler has been used for over 20 years. Hyaluronic acid can bind a thousand times its own weight in water and is naturally present in the body, but decreases with age. This can make the skin looser and less elastic, and makes wrinkles more likely to appear.

Can I be allergic to what fillers contain?

It is very rare to be allergic to the contents of fillers. Usually there are no side effects, but sometimes there may be some redness, swelling or slight bruising in the area where the injection was performed. In principle, anyone can use fillers. However, pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding should not undergo injection treatments with fillers.

Some fillers contain Lidocaine, which is a type of local anaesthetic. If you are allergic to Lidocaine, you should of course not use fillers containing this substance. When you book a consultation with us, we go through this and check with you.

Does the content of fillers stay in the body permanently?

The results of hyaluronic acid injections are not permanent. The substance is naturally present in the body and breaks down over time - so fillers do not stay in the body forever. How long the effect lasts is always individual. The content of fillers breaks down at different rates in different people.

How and where are fillers applied?

Fillers have many uses. Fillers are applied through injections - that is, using a needle. Fillers can be used to:

  • fill in fine lines and wrinkles
  • filling in deeper folds such as the nasolabial folds
  • make changes to the profile of the nose
  • create volume and change the shape of, for example, cheekbones, lips, jawline and chin.
  • smoothing the skin
  • reduce the visibility of scars
  • moisturise the skin and give it extra elasticity.
