HYALURONIC ACID WRINKLE SMOOTHING
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Hyaluronic acid wrinkle smoothing is used in aesthetic surgery to increase tissue volume. It is used to smooth the skin, reduce wrinkles, and fill areas of the dermis and hypodermis where there is a lack of tissue.
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, viscous gel delivered in a sterile injection. It is a natural polysaccharide that occurs as an important component of skin, subcutaneous tissue, connective tissue, and joints. This substance, used for aesthetic purposes is of non-animal origin, which makes it safe and minimises the risk of serious adverse reactions. Hyaluronic acid breaks down over time and therefore has no lasting effect. How long the effect lasts depends on the specific type of substance used and the body’s reaction to it. As the body breaks down hyaluronic acid over time, it is necessary to add more for a lasting effect. Hyaluronic acid is often combined with other substances or even surgical treatments.
For a less painful application, we use local anaesthetic injections or an anaesthetic cream. Hyaluronic acid injections cause temporary redness, swelling, and signs of punctures, all of which usually subside within a few days.
