Hyaluronic acid is one of the most sought-after products in modern cosmetology. Wanting to improve their appearance without surgery, more and more people choose precisely the beauty injections with its use. The popularity of such drugs is associated with a pronounced aesthetic effect and safety. Indeed, in most cases, injections do not cause any allergic reactions.
