Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that exists in our body, which is used in aesthetic medicine in order to restore the volume loss produced over the years in certain facial areas or in order to increase volume in certain body areas (such as lips, cheeks, vagina outer lips, glans, penis, and so on). Hyaluronic acid is the right treatment to do so, since it is a biocompatible, resorbable and non-allergenic natural substance which is aimed at rejuvenating your face through a wrinkle filling and increasing skin hydration.
How is hyaluronic acid injection performed?
This treatment is fast and takes around 15-30 minutes and a prior assessment by Dr. Joaquín Pérez-Guisado Rosa is necessary. It is a painless and outpatient procedure, because microinjections are performed with very fine needles to make the patient come back to routine activities immediately. We usually recommend the prior application of topical anesthetic cream in order to eliminate discomfort during the procedure.
It is not a final technique, because the body absorbs it completely in 6-14 moths, and that is why it is necessary to perform periodic injections. Infiltration effects are immediate, they appear after 24-48 hours.
When is the filling with hyaluronic acid recommended?
It is recommended in the filling of superficial and deep facial wrinkles such as nose-lips wrinkles, marionette lines, frown wrinkles, peribucal wrinkles, periorbital wrinkles… It is also used in the augmentation of lips, cheeks, vagina outer lips, penis, glans, and so on; to hydrate lips and face, to restore facial volume and to prevent skin ageing.
