What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is an essential component for maintenance of the structure of the layers of skin. It hydrates and feeds the skin.
It is a molecule that is naturally present in the dermis, but it diminishes with time. The skin loses its tonicity, dries out and wrinkles appear. With age, fat tissue progressively dissolves: facial folds deepen and volumes are reduced.
Which areas are indicated for hyaluronic acid?
Small wrinkles as well as deep folds can be treated and facial volumes can be restored.
- Lips and perioral region
- Cheekbones lacking volume
- Nasolabial folds
- Temporal cavities
During the consultation, the patient defines with the physician what he or she wishes as a result. For example, the images below with the different lip volumes possible.
The physician injects the area being treated with a very fine needle. The depth and quantity of the product varies according to the desired effect. As for pain, everyone has a different sensitivity but these injections are not generally accompanied by pain. There is no local anesthesia since the syringes contain an anesthetic. However, depending on the case, it is possible to apply a cream to reduce possible pain.
After the session, there can be slight bruising and/or redness that disappears very quickly. No social eviction is required after the session.
The results are immediately visible and are permanent after three days. This is a resorbable product that lasts from 9 to 18 months. Regular application slows signs of aging and gives the face a relaxed aspect.
