Hyaluronic acid is a molecule found naturally in large quantities in our skin.
It has the ability to retain water molecules, keeping the skin of our face well hydrated, offering volume to the face where it is needed and a youthful appearance.
Unfortunately, over time the hyaluronic acid that we naturally have loses a large part of its absorbent capacity (the ability to hold water like a "biological sponge") but it also breaks down and is absorbed so a part of it is lost. The result of this loss of hyaluronic acid is the formation of deep wrinkles especially in the nasolabial folds (between the nose and mouth), and in the filter ("smoker's wrinkles" above the upper lip) as well as under the lower lip ("bitter wrinkles"). . Also, in particularly expressive individuals, deep wrinkles are formed in the mid-frow (between the eyebrows) and next to the eye ("crow's feet"). Today, hyaluronic acid is synthetically produced and is safe to use as an implant (injectable material) in cosmetic dermatology to “fill” these wrinkles.
Other uses of hyaluronic acid as an implant are to add some volume to the lips and create an aesthetically improved and more beautiful mouth.
The effect of hyaluronic as a filler is completely immediately noticeable and the patient leaves with a new renewed face.
The effect of the treatment lasts from 9-12 months.
The duration of the therapeutic session is only 20-30 minutes!
Hyaluronic acid can also be used as mesotherapy. In this case it is not used to fill deep wrinkles, but to provide a deep hydration to the skin and indirectly help in the elimination of wrinkles and the elasticity and younger appearance of the skin. This application is of particular value in areas such as the neck and the dorsal surface of the hands.
"Hyaluronic is a molecule that is found naturally in our skin. If we think of our skin as a building, collagens and elastic fibers form the framework and hyaluronic forms the cement of the skin. Today we have the option of having a synthetic hyaluronic that we put in to replace the amounts of hyaluronic that have now been lost from our skin. So we can put it in any area of the face to fill the wrinkles that have deepened in the middle of the forehead, in the nasolabial folds, to give volume to the cheekbones and create cheekbones giving a beautiful structure to the face, creating a triangular face with the right angles . The duration of the treatment is about half an hour, we can do all our activities afterwards, continue our life very normally, there is no recovery time, we can immediately return to our work. It is very important to use top-quality hyaluronics such as Juvederm, which I work with, which give us a long duration, that is, from 9 to 12 months, and in addition we have no feeling of intolerance or any difficulty after application. Also, these hyaluronics are combined with xylocaine, which makes the application completely painless.”
“What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin. It has the ability to adsorb (binds like a biological "sponge") water molecules as a result of which it hydrates and provides volume to the skin. As we age, the skin loses hyaluronic molecules (as well as collagen and elastin), but the remaining hyaluronic is also of a worse quality (holds less water).
In addition to its use in cosmetic dermatology, hyaluronic acid has been used for more than 20 years by orthopedic and rheumatologists for joint injections as well as in ophthalmology.
“How is hyaluronic acid used?
It can be used to "fill" wrinkles and deep lines anywhere on the face and especially the deep lines between the nose and mouth (nasolabial) or between the eyebrows (mid-frow). We can add hyaluronic acid to the cheeks and cheekbones and provide volume that has been lost while eliminating fine lines due to loss of elasticity.
“Is hyaluronic acid treatment painful?
No. Before the treatment, we apply a xylocaine cream (EMLA) to the area which numbs the area where the injection will be made (the thinnest possible insulin needle is used). Also, the material we use (JUVEDERM) is combined with xylocaine, which makes the application painless.
How long does the application-treatment last?
The application takes about 20-30 minutes. To this time we add another 20-30 minutes which precedes the application of the anesthetic cream (EMLA) to the area.
How long does the effect of the treatment last?
The result of the treatment is immediate (the patient leaves with a corrected, perfect face!) and lasts for 9-12 months during which the hyaluronic acid we added naturally biologically degrades. The exact length of time for which the effect of the treatment will last is determined by factors such as age, skin type, how expressive the person is and the area of the face where the correction-application was made (in areas where there is a lot of mobility such as the nasolabial folds (hyaluronate degrades faster). To maintain the good result and a youthful face, we usually repeat the treatment every 9 months.
After the application, when can I return to work or social activities?
Immediately! After the application is over you can go straight back to work, go for coffee etc
At what age can I start hyaluronic treatment?
There is no restriction. We can start treatment at any age when the appearance of wrinkles begins to bother us. Also other applications such as adding volume to the lips are done at a very young age when we are interested in a more sensual mouth.
How does hyaluronic acid treatment differ from BOTOX treatment?
Hyaluronic "fills" deep lines and wrinkles. The effect of the treatment appears immediately and lasts for 9-12 months. It effectively contributes to anti-aging by correcting imperfections created by time, and the intense use of facial muscles that create wrinkles (very expressive people, smokers, people with very thin-fragile skin).
The BOTOX it works with a completely different mechanism, calming the facial muscles that "write" the wrinkles. The effect of treatment appears after 7-10 days and lasts about 6 months. In addition to immediate anti-aging (with the disappearance of wrinkles), BOTOX treatment essentially also helps to prevent anti-aging (when we start the treatment early at the age of around 30). This is because by relaxing the muscles that "write" wrinkles at an early age, when the skin still has good elasticity and wrinkles do not settle permanently, we protect the face from the appearance of wrinkles before they settle! Finally, BOTOX treatment is preferred on the upper face (forehead, around the eyes-crow's feet), while hyaluronic is the treatment of choice on the lower face (wrinkles between the nose-mouth, cheekbones-apples, mouth, wrinkles in the mustache, chin, etc.) .
Finally, let's add that for an ideal result, BOTOX and hyaluronic treatments can be combined on the same face!
How can I get a more beautiful mouth with the use of hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid can be used to give volume to the upper or lower lip of the mouth. It can be used on the contour of the upper lip to lift the upper lip upwards, while also helping to fade the annoying vertical wrinkles that appear in the upper lip-filter area (the "moustache". These are more common in smokers, but and very expressive people). Finally, it can also be placed under the corners of the mouth to correct the drooping of the corner of the mouth when it is observed. The application of hyaluronic acid is done painlessly after the application of xylocaine anesthetic cream, while in this application we use specialized products such as "Juvederm ULTRA SMILE". In any case a beautiful and sensual mouth adds a lot to his appearance
INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE APPLICATION:
Avoid taking aspirin for a few days before the application (increases the risk of swelling and bruising in the application area)
Avoid drinking alcohol on the day of the application
INSTRUCTIONS AFTER APPLICATION:
Avoid massaging the application area for the next 4 hours.
Avoid taking aspirin for 4 days after application (increases risk of swelling and bruising at application site)
Avoid excessive exposure to high temperature (hot bath, hammam, sauna, sunbathing) for the next 4 days.
Avoid additional treatments in the application area of the face for the next 7 days (eg avoid dermabrasion, chemical peeling, IPL, LASER)
