Hyaluronic acid injections
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin.
It contributes to the hydration of our skin thanks to its considerable water-holding capabilities. A filler that is made from hyaluronic acid is a high-tech product in the form of a gel, which is injected into the dermis or facial fat and absorbed gradually and completely.
There are different types of filler made from hyaluronic acid. Some have a volumizing effect, and others are more filling or hydrating.
What happens when hyaluronic acid injections are used?
Treatments with hyaluronic acid take 30 to 45 minutes on average, and the effect is immediately visible.
The hyaluronic acid fillers used by us contain an anaesthetic, making them fairly painless. If necessary, an anaesthetising cream can be applied to the area 1 hour before treatment.
The effect of the hyaluronic acid filler lasts from 6 to 18 months on average, depending on the type of product and the area injected.read more
Hyaluronic acid injections are used:
To fill wrinkles and furrows, including:
- the nasolabial fold (the lines between the nose and the corners of the mouth)
- marionette lines (between the corner of the mouth and the chin)
- wrinkles to the forehead and crow’s feet
- lines around the mouth
To restore the loss of volume in the face
Resorbing the loss of volume results in very natural-seeming rejuvenation, as this method lifts the skin surrounding the injected area, restoring the curves and the oval of the face peculiar to youthful beauty.
The areas most commonly treated include the cheekbones, the temples and the facial contours.
For the lips
The lips become thinner, and their contours wrinkle as we age. Hyaluronic injections may improve the outline and plump up the lips in a natural manner.
To deeply revitalise and hydrate the skin
A product made with a hydrating and lighter type of hyaluronic acid is used for a deep and lasting hydration of the skin. A technique known as ‘skin booster’ consists of injecting small drops of the product into the dermis to revitalise it. This results in improved elasticity and skin structure.
This technique is used to tone a wrinkled, dehydrated skin, as well as to firm up skins that have been damaged by the sun and smoking. It can be used for the face at any age, as well as for the décolletage and the hands.
