What is an HA-based skin filler?
Juvederm Volbella is based on HA. This means that the main active ingredient in the product is Hyaluronic Acid. The human body produces HA on its own to preserve and maintain skin’s hydro balance. However, the older we get, the lower our HA production levels become. This negatively affects the appearance of the skin as it gradually loses its tone and elasticity.
Allergan’s filler injection can effectively counteract the age-related loss of HA. The Hyaluronic Acid it includes is derived through a process known as biofermantation. Therefore, although the ingredient is synthetically-produced, it is fully biocompatible. Its use hides no risks for patients’ health, and the substance will completely dissolve without leaving traces in the soft tissues.
