Hyalaronic Acid comes in different formulations. Thinner fillers are used more superficially (closer to the surface of the skin) to fill fine lines and restore volume of tissue with thin skin. Thicker fillers are used to in the deep tissues (often close to the bone) to restore volume to the face and to provide a structural base on which thinner fillers can be layered. Depending on the formulation and location of treatment HA may last 6 months to 2 years.
