Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is the most popular treatment for filling up facial wrinkles. The products that are most often used are Restylane, Juvederm, Teosyal, (brand names for hyaluronic acid).

What exactly can we achieve with fillers – hyaluronic acid?

They are used for filling up wrinkles of the face. In particular:

1. filling up the nasolabial fold, i.e. the wrinkly extending from the base of the nose to the outer part of the mouth;
2. correcting deep wrinkles of the glabella. Also,
3. lip enhancement;
4. lip contouring;
5. adding volume to cheekbones;
6. face contouring;
7. liquid Face Lift.

What exactly is the hyaluronic acid?

It is a natural substance found in our body. More specifically, it is a hydrophilic protein, an element of the skin's chore layer (dermis). The hyaluronic acid that we use as filler is prepared at the lab and is biodegradable.

What is its biological activity?

1. Skin hydration through water binding. Hyaluronic acid can bind water quantities that are 1000 times its weight.
2. Skin lubrication and elasticity preservation. A hyaluronic acid molecule may increase its volume by 18 – 20 times.
3. Skin protection. Collagen and new cells production.

How else is it used?

1. In mesotherapy
2. In creams
3. In ophthalmology
4. In orthopaedics
5. In food supplements

How long will the result last?

The result may last from 6 months to 1 year. The more often the treatment is done the longer the result will last.

Are the results immediate?

Yes

Before the treatment

A local anaesthetic cream is placed on the area where the injection will be performed.

During treatment

Hyaluronic acid is available in packages of 1 ml. Injection is performed with a very small needle. It lasts for 5-10 minutes.

After treatment

Slight redness and minor oedema that usually subside after 1 hour or 24 hours in some cases.

Complications – Side effects

The above preparation is among the safest products with almost no reported problems. Rarely the patients may develop allergies or extended oedema.

What is a good result depending on?

But of course, the person who makes the injection. Particularly with hyaluronic acid. Good results also depends on the quantity used. Too much or too little of the product will jeopardise the treatment.

What is the regular dosage?

For nasolabial folds, one or two syringes are usually necessary.

What is hyaluronic acid most often combined with?

With Botox/ Dysport, Mesotherapy, Face Lift (face lift) and liquid Face Lift.
