Unlike Botox, Hyaluronic Acid is a filler. It is used to fill visible wrinkles found mainly at the lower part of the face including the nasal labial folds, the peri oral wrinkles, jowls, cheekbones and the lips.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present within the body that assists with hydration. Today, it is also injected as a filler to help restore facial volume and wrinkles. It is also biocompatible with the body.
With age, the concentration of Hyaluronic acid present in the skin’s tissue decreases which, over time, reduces facial volume and causes static wrinkles on the face, the neck and the décolletage.
Hyaluronic acid injections help to eliminate the signs of ageing by restoring lost volume.
WHAT ARE THE INDICATIONS?
- To compensate for volume loss associated with skin ageing
- To restore lost volume at the cheekbones, lips, cheeks and chin
- To improve the overall quality of the skin
- To prevent visible ageing by filling the ‘laughter lines’ (nasolabial/nasogenian folds)
Hyaluronic acid injections restore facial volume lost over time through the ageing process.
Hyaluronic acid has many virtues:
Hyaluronic acid smoothes the skin, removes wrinkles and refreshes the complexion without the need for cosmetic surgery.
It is a very good antioxidant that helps preserve the dermis from the harmful effects of the sun.
It is a very powerful hydrophilic product: the hyaluronic acid retains water in the tissues, which allows on the one hand a volumizing effect to fill wrinkles and on the other hand to maintain the water level sufficient in the dermis for a well hydrated skin.
