Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally-occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin. Because natural hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body in one or two days so it is constantly replaced. As we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturizing and plumping effects of hyaluronic acid decrease.
Are there any side effects during manual injections?
Redness, swelling and bruising, may be accompanied by irritation or pain on application of pressure. Lumps or nodules may appear at the injection site. Rare cases of necrosis in the glabellar area, abscesses and granuloma have been reported after injections of hyaluronic acid.
Are there any side effects during injections with FillerGun?
