Most patients say that hyaluronic acid injections do not hurt. You will experience a slight pinch or burn with the initial application and for sensitive skin, we can use a topical anesthetic spray or cream to numb the area being treated.
Is hyaluronic acid the same as Botox®?
No, hyaluronic acid and Botox® (botulinum toxins) are different substances that are used to achieve different aesthetic treatment outcomes. For example, hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by the body and botulinum toxins are foreign to the body.
Are dermal fillers produced naturally by the body?
No, dermal fillers used in aesthetic medicine treatments are biodegradable and biocompatible synthetic replicas of the natural hyaluronic acid produced by the body.
Can you undo or remove hyaluronic dermal fillers?
Yes, the dermal filling treatment with hyaluronic acid can be undone and removed! Unlike Botox, some brands of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be reversed with a treatment that uses an enzyme called Hyaluronidase to dissolve the hyaluronic acid.

What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural gel-like fluid produced by the body that improves cartilage function, skin hydration, stimulates the production of collagen, and helps skin to maintain its elasticity.
It is the most powerful natural moisturizer and it is created by your fascinating body! The hyaluronic acid molecule is like a giant water balloon that can hold 1000 times its weight in water! As it sits in your dermal tissue, this hydration bomb keeps your skin glowing, clear, tight, and elastic. That’s why it’s so essential to youthful skin.
But as we age, the quantity and quality of our hyaluronic acid decreases, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
That’s why we use hyaluronic acid as dermal fillers to smooth out wrinkles and lines and to enhance the shape and volume of our lips, nose, and jawline.
