Over time, the natural production of hyaluronic acid in your body is constantly decreasing. It is estimated that the body of a woman over the age of 45 contains only 50% of her hyaluronic acid! However, it is indeed this molecule in your body that will allow your skin to preserve all its youthfulness. As a result, the lack of hyaluronic acid causes the appearance of age wrinkles on your skin, in addition to gradually relaxing it.
By starting to fill in your loss of volume and wrinkles thanks to the injection of hyaluronic acid, you can expect an overall rejuvenation of your face, but also of your hands and your neckline.
Presentation hyaluronic acid injection
The injection of hyaluronic acid is an aesthetic treatment that helps to erase wrinkles and reshape areas of the face that naturally lose volume over time. Hyaluronic acid is a 100% natural molecule found in our skin, it promotes daily hydration of the skin so that it can remain toned. In addition to rejuvenating the face, hyaluronic acid can be used to treat other areas of the body, such as the hands and neckline.
As we age, our bodies generate less and less of this reconstructive molecule, resulting in the development of wrinkles, sagging skin and other signs of facial aging.
In order to fight effectively the signs of aging, the injection of hyaluronic acid is widely recommended by aesthetic doctors. Perfectly absorbable by your skin, the product allows a real rejuvenation of the face. The hyaluronic acid used in aesthetic medicine is very close to that produced by the body. There is therefore little risk of allergy.
Hyaluronic injection is an effective solution for skin reshaping and the treatment of wrinkles of old age, but it can also intervene on expression lines. Expression lines are those that result from the contractions of our facial muscles to mark our emotions, such as the lion’s wrinkle between the eyes that we experience when we frown.
To help you regain a rejuvenated face, Clinique de la Croix d’Or also offers the injection of botulinum toxin for the treatment of wrinkles, also known as Botox. This is a complementary treatment to hyaluronic acid. Schematically, the hyaluronic acid will correct your loss of volume, while the botulinum toxin will relax your overly contracted muscles.
During your first consultation in the clinic, your plastic surgeon will assess your needs and guide you towards the best facial aesthetic care according to your expectations and needs. To learn more about our treatments, do not hesitate to contact our clinic.
areas treated by hyaluronic acid injections
Hyaluronic acid injections are carried out to areas of your body that lack tonicity or hydration. It is the face as a whole, but also the hands and the neckline that can be treated by the injections. It can be a question of filling in wrinkles, but also of reshaping volumes as for the oval of the face.
To give you a better overview, here are the main areas treated on your face:
– for the upper third of your face: frown lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet and temples, often a combination of hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin.
– for the middle third of your face: the wrinkles between your nose and cheeks (the nasolabial fold), cheekbones, dark circles, the valley of tears under dark circles.
– for the lower third of your face: bitterness wrinkles, fine lines (small wrinkles) around the mouth, lips, chin.
course for the hyaluronic acid injection :
Before starting the treatment, the cosmetic doctor begins by carefully examining your face in order to make a precise diagnosis of your needs. Your practitioner will then make sure that the injection of hyaluronic acid is indeed the facial aesthetic care best suited to your skin problem. To reduce wrinkles on your face, your cosmetic doctor may, for example, suggest botulinum toxin injections rather than hyaluronic acid if he or she feels that the result will be preferable.
In the case that an injection of hyaluronic acid offers the best aesthetic treatment for your needs, here is how the procedure is carried out.
First of all, your cosmetic doctor will first make sure that you have no contraindications. Once this check-up has been completed, your practitioner ensures rigorous cleaning of the injected area as well as complete disinfection.
Your cosmetic doctor can then begin the procedure. The session is almost painless and lasts only 20 to 60 minutes depending on the number of areas to be treated as well as the surfaces concerned (face, hands, neckline). Your doctor will simply perform small injections on the targeted areas using a very fine needle or a cannula.
At the end of the session, the first results are already visible, but it may take 24 to 48 hours for the product to settle into place and for the small swellings to disappear. We will systematically see you again within 15 days after your visit to our clinic to evaluate the final result and make any necessary adjustments.
After your treatment, you simply have to follow the indications and prescriptions of your aesthetic doctor. The effect of hyaluronic acid has a duration of effectiveness of 6 to 18 months. To preserve the result longer, you simply need to repeat the sessions.
hyaluronic acid injection side-effects
There may be a few transient adverse effects following an injection of hyaluronic acid, such as the appearance of small redness or slight oedema. Other effects such as hematoma or ecchymosis are very rarely observed with deep injections.
The most serious side effects are allergies, skin necrosis or vascular compression or embolism. These effects are obviously extremely rare, and are especially observed in the case of products that are badly positioned or unsuitable for the injected area. By contacting a renowned clinic of aesthetic medicine and surgery such as the Clinique de la Croix d’Or, you are sure to benefit from high quality products for all your aesthetic treatments.
