1.What is hyaluronic acid
Naturally present in the skin, hyaluronic acid maintains its
hydration levels and contributes to its tone. It is a potent
moisturising agent with a capacity to retain up to 1,000 times its
weight in water. The amount of hyaluronic acid in the dermis
gradually decreases with age. As a result, the skin becomes dry and
fragile and the first wrinkles appear. When it is injected into the
2.What can hyaluronic acid correct and improve
It can be used to:- Fill fine lines, moderately marked wrinkles and
deep wrinkles- Repair skin creases- Resculpt the cheekbones and
soften the contours of the face- Increase and reshape lip volume
and contour, at the same time moisturising lips and eliminating
fine lines around them- Revitalise and intensively rehydrate-
Prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, even in the most
delicate areas, such as the neck or neckline- Fill all zones of the
face (periocular zone, crow’s feet, tear troughs, cheeks, etc.)
that have hollowed out.
3.What happens during a hyaluronic acid injection session and how
long does it last
Depending on the product injected, the session lasts an average of
20 minutes (injection of a zone + massage of the zone
injected)During the injection session, your doctor will inject you
with Hyaluronic Acid in gel form using a syringe. The injection is
shallow, only penetrating a few millimetres.
4.What is the difference between botox and hyaluronic acid
Although both these products are used to treat wrinkles, they are
completely different in terms of both their composition and action.
Botox does not actually treat the wrinkle itself. Botox is a toxic
product (botulinum toxin) that paralyses the muscles into which it
is injected. By paralysing the muscle expressions are reduced and
by reducing expressions, expression lines can be avoided. Botox is
therefore a preventive method.Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible
gel that is injected under the skin into the wrinkle, to fill it.
With Hyaluronic acid, the existing wrinkle is therefore treated
directly.The only thing the two products have in common is that
they are resorbed over time and, therefore, injections have to be
repeated periodically, every 6 to 10 months for a botox injection
or every 12 to 18 months for a hyaluronate acid injection.
