What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule naturally present in your body. The exceptional properties of this molecule have determined its use in many medical specialties including ophthalmology (cataract surgery), ENT (vocal cord surgery), urology and to help the healing of wounds. Since 1996, this molecule has been developed in the field of aesthetic filling. Hyaluronic acid is now considered the reference product used in medical volumetric rejuvenation. The duration of the injections varies between 8 and 24 months: the injections have a sufficiently long duration to be effective and their transitory nature makes it possible to follow the aging.

At the end of this period, the product is completely degraded by your body. The results are immediate and the side effects are exceptional. The possibility of injecting it in different forms makes it possible to use at best its qualities: Moisturizing and revitalizing in mesotherapy: improving the quality of the skin (radiance, hydration) Correction of superficial wrinkles Correction of deep wrinkles and volumes

A session of injections can be carried out in isolation, but can also complete more radical medico-surgical rejuvenation techniques such as resurfacing (peeling, laser, dermabrasion), blepharoplasty (upper and / or lower eyelids), facelifts etc … It can also in parallel with injections of Botulinum Toxin to reduce the tone of certain muscles responsible for the appearance of wrinkles. What is the use of hyaluronic acid? Injections of hyaluronic acid can easily and quickly correct some signs of aging present in the face, filling or giving volume where it is needed.

What is the use of hyaluronic acid?

Injections of hyaluronic acid can easily and quickly correct some signs of aging present in the face, filling or giving volume where it is needed. The wrinkles will not completely disappear but will be considerably lessened by the injections. Some alterations respond much better to treatment than others more difficult to manage. Similarly, the durability of the correction varies depending on the type of hyaluronic acid and the patient (s), but the correction is only temporary and the treatment will have to be renewed to maintain the result.

The injections of hyaluronic acid, practiced as well in the woman as in the man, can be carried out from 30-35 years. However, they are sometimes realized much earlier, when the disgrace is constitutional or hereditary and not related to age (lips, cheekbones …).

How are injections of hyaluronic acid  performed?

The area to be treated is disinfected before injection. An anesthetic cream is put in place a few minutes (Emla). Injections are done using foam needles or micro-cannulas (non-pungent). Depending on the practitioner, the number of areas to be treated, the extent of the improvements to be made, and the possible need to perform anesthesia, the injection session can last from 10 minutes to 1 hour.

After the injection, the practitioner carefully massages the treated areas to optimize the uniformity of the correction. In some cases, it is better to consider a retouching session after a few days or weeks in order to perfect the result. When multiple areas are treated in the same session, the results are: More visible (global rejuvenation). More harmonious (less differences between different parts of the face). The face will remain more balanced, during the resorption of injected products

What should you do after the injection of hyaluronic acid?

The first six hours it is better to stay calm, rest and abstain from any violent effort. It is also desirable to avoid as much as possible to mobilize his face (no mimicry, do not talk too much or laugh). For a few days it will be best to avoid alcohol, Aspirin, anti-inflammatories and avoid exposure of the treated areas to strong heat (sun, UV, sauna, steam room).

The immediate consequences may be marked by the appearance of edema (swelling) and redness of skin whose importance and duration vary widely depending on the product and from one individual to another, but which remain usually moderate (not prohibiting the return to a normal socio-professional life very quickly) and disappear after one to three days. On the lips however, the edema, often more marked can sometimes last a week. It should be noted that during the first days, there may be some temporary irregularities due to the inhomogeneous distribution of the edema, or an aspect of hypercorrection (in relief) which will gradually disappear, possibly accelerated in this by massages. A delay of a few days is necessary to assess the final result. This is the time needed for the product to be well integrated, the edema has disappeared and tissues have regained their flexibility. The immediate result after treatment is therefore not a reflection of the final result. The injections will have corrected the defects, thus rectifying in a discreet and natural way the aged and tired appearance of the face. Note that filling injections, unlike injections of Botulinum Toxin, do not alter the mobility of the muscles of the face and therefore do not reduce the facial expressions.

The goal of hyaluronic acid injections is to bring improvement and not to achieve perfection. If your wishes are realistic, the result should give you a great satisfaction.
