Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, which gives it elasticity and firmness by retaining water molecules and giving volume and moisture to the skin.

As Hyaluronic acid decreases over time, applying injectable HA to the skin can renew what is lost, and can therefore help to improve the appearance of the skin. The hyaluronic acid we use for injectable treatment is prepared in the laboratory in the safest ways.

What is its effect on facial renewal?

Hyaluronic acid gives volume and moisture to the skin. Therefore, it can be used for:

– Deep hydration
– The correction of the nasolabial fold (the wrinkle that starts from the base of the nose to the outside of the mouth)
– The correction of wrinkles at the corner of the mouth
– The correction of deep wrinkles in the middle of the forehead,
– Lip volume increase,
– Lip contouring
– Face contouring by giving volume to the parts of the face that have been reduced (e.g., cheekbones)

Will my facial features change?

The result depends on the doctor doing the treatment. When used correctly, it is non-distorting, imperceptible and poses no health risk. The experience of the Plastic Surgeon, as well as his understanding of the rules of aesthetics, are the guarantee for an excellent and completely natural result.

Where and how is hyaluronic acid treatment done?

The application takes place in the doctor’s office, takes about 20 minutes and the degree of discomfort is minimal.

Is there a recovery time?

No. After leaving the doctor’s office, the patient can resume their normal day-to-day activities. There is no downtime or recovery time as it is a simple in-office procedure. A little redness and swelling at the injection site may occur, which usually goes away after 1 hour to a maximum of 24 hours.

When is the effect of the treatment evident?

There is some immediate benefit post-treatment, but results are most visible in 4 weeks.

How long does its action last?

Its duration is 6-24 months and depends on the area and the purpose it is used for (e.g. hydration, volume).

With what other treatments can hyaluronic acid be combined?

Botox, Mesotherapy, Face Lift, Chemical Peel, Fractional Laser.
