Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid injections fill in wrinkles and folds, plump up lips, enhance cheekbones and redefine facial contours.

What is it?

Hyaluronic acid, a sugar naturally present in the dermis fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers. Its hydrophilic properties enable it to attract water and thus contribute to the hydration and volumization of the skin. During the ageing process, epidermal cells progressively lose their capacity to produce hyaluronic acid. This leads to a loss of volume and consequent accentuation of facial wrinkles and folds. In aesthetic medicine, hyaluronic acid is used as a correcting and sculpting agent to restore symmetry, volumes, and freshness to the face and smoothness to its skin.

What is the procedure?

After a detailed consultation, the doctor performs hyaluronic acid injections in the chosen areas using a flexible and blunt microcannula. The procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes with immediate results. At Forever Laser Institut, we use hyaluronic acid from Merz, that contains an anaesthetic which reduces the discomfort during the procedure.

What can be treated?

Number of sessions?

Varies according to needs. Once injected, hyaluronic acid has a life span of 9 to 18 months, after which it is gradually resorbed. To optimized results, a touch-up session may be necessary 15 to 30 days after the first treatment.

Side effects?

Redness, slight swelling, bruising and nodules may sometimes occur on the site of injection; these side effects are temporary. In cases of oedema or asymmetries, hyaluronidase, an enzyme capable of resorbing hyaluronic acid, may be injected.

Results?

Wrinkles are smoothed, facial volumes are restored and lips are redefined. Hyaluronic acid rehydrates the skin and stimulates fibroblasts, the cells responsible for the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibres. This explains why hyaluronic acid injections restore suppleness and radiance to the skin. When repeated regularly, the effects last longer.
