Key take aways

  • Dan has been working as a nurse practitioner for 13 years and has been motivated to establish his own business for the past 20 years.
  • If HA fillers are placed in areas with minimal movement, they can last between 9 months and 1 year.
  • The actual breakdown of HA fillers can vary depending on the specific brand and thickness. Thicker fillers may last 12-24 months, while the thicker variants can last 15-24 months.
  • MRI scans have shown the presence of HA fillers even after 10-15 years, which is intriguing. The fillers’ bonding agent ensures their integrity and natural integration into surrounding tissue.
  • HA fillers can be dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which breaks them down.
  • Some HA fillers are hydrophilic, meaning they have a strong affinity for water. These specific fillers have a tendency to draw in and retain moisture from their surroundings. Due to their hydrophilic nature, these HA fillers can provide enhanced hydration and plumping effects when injected into the skin.
  • Hydrophilic HA fillers tend to be more expensive in the market due to their advanced properties.
