Hyaluronic acid is injected into the surface of the skin to plump up and smooth the appearance. Can be done all over the body, including the hands.
The patient report
“Three sessions, a month apart is recommended but the effects can last up to a year. A numbing gel is applied before the fillers are injected using a special hand-held device that sucks up your skin and pricks it with a needle. The technician works methodically all over your face until all the areas are covered. Some areas, like around the mouth, are more sore. Straight after, my skin was red and dotted but these disappeared within a few days. My skin feels more plumped up.” – Michelle The cost Approximately R3 000 per session for face* The pain metre
