Advancements in dermal fillers today provide subtle contouring and changes to your appearance. Collagan-free fillers are now available for those who have allergies. Collagen-free treatments remove the risk for allergic because they contain natural occurring substances in the body. One common used and highly effective substance is hyaluronic acid, which is an effective alternative to collagen and is allergic reaction-free.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance produced by your own body. It acts as a pathway through which nutrients can come from the bloodstream to your skin cells. This is what creates the look of fresh and youthful skin. Areas that have lost volume are ‘plumped up.’
Why is hyaluronic acid allergan-free?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body, while the collagen used in collagen fillers is not. Although collagen fillers have been used safely and effectively for a long time, we now have alternative treatments for those with collagen allerges. Your skincare specialist should test for allergies before any treatment.
Which allergy-free treatments are available?
Juvéderm is a dermal filler treatment which uses hyaluronic acid to draw hydration and nutrients to the surface of your skin. This “plumps” hollow areas and brings back youthful brightness. Hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm combines with water in your skin to createa a passage for nutrients to reach your skin cells.
Juvéderm treatment areas:
• Tired eyes – dark circles and hollowness are decreased
• Thin lips – nutrients plump the area
• Cheeks and jawlines – add volume and contour
• Elasticity – lost elasticity is returned
