Hyaluronic acid is a plumping agent that occurs naturally in the skin.
This product, manufactured in the laboratory (i.e. not made from animals) is absorbed 100% thanks to an enzyme in the skin: hyaluromidase.
The time the injected product will last depends on the molecule used:
Small, short chains degrade quickly (1 to 2 months) and are only used for mesotherapy of the face to give a hydrating effect.
Longer chains will last longer, especially if they are ‘reticulated’, linked together by molecular points.
Reticulated chains, producing molecules like little sponges, capturing the extra-cellular water in the skin, hydrate and take on good volume, while remaining supple to the touch. Hence the very natural result after treatment.
We use Juvéderm Ultra° virtually exclusively. This is the ‘Rolls-Royce’ of hyaluronic acid (it also contains a little lidocaine, an anaesthetic that makes the injection more comfortable). The result lasts for longer than a year if the injection is properly done.
INDICATIONS: anywhere VOLUME is required.
Deep wrinkles and folds:
- nasolabial folds (between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth on each side)
- bitterness lines (giving a sad look to the corners of the mouth)
Thin lips, ‘sunshine lines’
