WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PLLA
What is PLLA?
PLLA is the commercial name for poly-L-lactic acid, a substance that has several purposes, but in our case it is used for volumizing, facial filling and flaccid treatment of the face and body.
How does PLLA work?
After applied to the skin, it will be processed by our cells. In this process there is an activation of the formation of endogenous collagen, which in turn promotes the increase of the thickness of the skin layers, an improvement of elasticity and filling of the furrows, lines and wrinkles.
The lack of collagen is one of the main reasons for decreasing skin thickness and wrinkling. Thus, by replenishing our collagen, we have undergone a rejuvenation of this tissue.
What are the advantages of PLLA?
Acquafiller PLLA is fully biocompatible with skin tissue, causing no allergic reactions or formation of granulomas.
