Hyaluronic acid

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in most organisms. In the skin, hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen and elastin fillers. Hyaluronate is a skin polysaccharide, a natural component that decreases over time. It has the property of attracting water from the body like a sponge so as to "fill" the injected area. Together with the botulinum toxin, hyaluronate is number one in non-invasive therapies and has impressive results.

How Long Does Hyaluronic Acid Treatment last?

Treatment lasts from 20 minutes to one hour.

Is There Pain With Hyaluronic Acid Treatment?

It hurts a little, but especially new products contain local anesthetics that further reduce discomfort. Areas around the lips are more painful.

Where can it be used, where do we put hyaluronate?

We achieve the best results in the nasal passage near the nose and cheekbones. Theoretically, however, the dermatologist may use hyaluronic acid in many places:

✓ glabella
✓ nasopharyngeal furrows
✓ marionette lines
✓ forehead wrinkles
✓ "crow's feet"
✓ dimples near the mouth on the cheek
✓ increasing the volume of the lips
✓ scars and traces of acne
✓ other scarring on the face
✓ neck
✓ nose
✓ breasts
✓ dark circles under the eyes

How long does hyaluronic acid last?

Hyaluronic acid is not permanent. The duration of effect of hyaluronic acid is usually 6 to 12 months and treatment can be repeated. This is a completely natural treatment, the results are immediately visible. No precaution is required after treatment.

Hyaluronic acid: risks, complications, side effects and contraindications

Hyaluronic acid is generally well tolerated. Immediately after treatment, the area may be flushed, swollen, and sensitive. Redness and swelling pass after a few hours. Allergic reactions are reported very rarely. Biological hyaluronic acid (animal-based) was used before, but now the new hyaluronic acid is synthetic. In rare cases nodules are formed at the injection sites but they are not visible externally and disappear after a few weeks. Purchasing hyaluronic acid should be done by a dermatologist from valid and legitimate sources and not from the Internet by unknown suppliers.

Price:

The price depends on the physician's experience, the type of hyaluron and how much material will be needed for the treatment. Beware of descriptions usch as "natural", "plant-based", cheap hyaluron, or suspicious offers.

What happens if I decide not to repeat hyaluronic therapy?

If treatment with hyaluronate is discontinued, it will have absolutely no adverse or side effect. On the contrary, recent studies have shown that hyaluronate treatment promotes the production of collagen in the injected sites. For this reason, even when it stops acting, the benefit of neo-collagenogenesis persists and is not lost.
