Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid

The plastic surgeon can “camouflage” the signs of aging of the face with the help of hyaluronic acid injections. With this method the surgeon can turn back time for more than a decade.

Hyaluronic acid – What is it?

Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoprotein which is produced by our body through natural processes. Over time, the cells that produce hyaluronic acid degenerate. This is the main factor which harms the ability of the cells to absorb water and increase facial volume and this leads to dehydrated skin and deep wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid – Uses

Chemical hyaluronic acid is produced in a laboratory and retains all its natural properties. It is safe and can be applied as an injectable treatment for hydration, wrinkle filling, but also for adding volume to specific parts of the face. The application is done with simple surface injections without anesthesia in the following cases:

  • Rhinoplasty wrinkles
  • Wrinkles between the eyes
  • Small wrinkles around the mouth
  • For lip volume increase
  • Feet
  • Hands rejuvenation
  • Volume in zygomatic area and cheeks
  • Small surface and deep facial wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Facial hydration

Hyaluronic acid – Side effects

With the proper technique natural results are ensured but poor technique and excessive use are the main factors which ruins facial expressions. The patient and the doctor must remember that the existence of some wrinkles in a harmonic face, are much more attractive than a “plastic” face without any wrinkle.
