Hyaluronic acid

Html

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. In fact, this substance is found in almost every single living thing. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers.

So if you want to reduce facial wrinkles and lines, hyaluronic acid may be a good choice. When this gel is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.

Candidates for hyaluronic acid injections
Hyaluronic acid treatments will help to improve your appearance temporarily, but it's not a permanent solution and it won't stop the aging process.

Some people opt to have hyaluronic acid injections - often called a liquid facelift - to delay the time when a surgical facelift is more appropriate. It's a great way to see some impressive changes and improvements in your appearance until you're ready for a permanent surgical option.

Before you consider having hyaluronic acid treatment, be aware that you might not achieve the results you want with just one treatment. Depending on how your body reacts to the injections, you might need additional injections. Most people need at least three visits before they are completely satisfied with the results.

It's key to know that the injections last between three to five months, depending on your life style, body chemistry and the rate at which you are naturally aging. To maintain their youthful appearance, most people have new hyaluronic injections two to three times a year.

If you decide not to re-treat, your appearance will return to its original condition. Wrinkles and scars will return, and plumped lips will lose volume.

 

risks and recovery information
You can resume most activities immediately following injection with hyaluronic acid skin treatment. Just be careful not to rub the area. Most people tolerate injectable hyaluronic acid therapy without irritation or complications. Right after your treatment, the area may be red, swollen and bruised. This tenderness should go away within a few days.

Almost everyone is a good candidate for hyaluronic therapy and complications are extremely rare. Some people, however, may experience:

  • An allergic reaction
  • Red and/or thickened nodules that arise in the injected sites. They can persist for several weeks or months
