Clinique de la Croix d’Or, our FAQ
ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS TO HYALURONIC ACID INJECTIONS?
The contraindications to hyaluronic acid injections are: Pregnancy and Breastfeeding, Allergy to the injection product, Skin damage, Autoimmune diseases, Taking aspirin or anticoagulant (relative contraindication, to be avoided before the act).
Even though hyaluronic acid is a man-made product, we inject a synthetic product that requires precautions. The products used at the Clinique esthétique de la Croix d’Or have European and American approval and are manufactured by recognized pharmaceutical groups.
HOW LONG DOES THE FILLING LAST ONCE THE PRODUCT IS INJECTED?
There are several types of hyaluronic acid within the same range. These vary according to several parameters for a better integration into the injected anatomical tissue. On average, hyaluronic acids will last from 6-8 months for the most fluid to 15-18 months for the thickest.
ARE THERE ANY PRECAUTIONS TO TAKE AFTER AN INJECTION?
After an injection, you must follow the precautions given by the clinic. They are simple, not very restrictive and short in time.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD AN INJECTION BE REPEATED?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INJECTING HYALURONIC ACID THROUGH A CANNULA AND THROUGH A NEEDLE?
The mode of administration of hyaluronic acid always requires a passage of the skin barrier, at a minimum. In aesthetic medicine, it is injected using two possible techniques: the needle or the cannula. Depending on the act and the doctor’s habit, one of these techniques will be used. The cannula allows for a safer and less traumatic procedure, but requires a great deal of dexterity and experience on the part of the operator for the product to be injected accurately.
The needle is a more direct technique but is more traumatic and risky in terms of the vascular-nervous structures of the injected area.
