Hyaluronic acid is used to give fullness but also reshapes the face by filling in wrinkles and other areas that can be improved: the nasolabial folds, lips, contour of the mouth, and cheeks and cheeksbones and periorbital region.
Having evaluated the depth of the wrinkle (deep or superficial) light and the type of skin (fatty, dry, thin, thick) an equivalent volume of implant light or more dense is injected. A second appointment will be made after four to six weeks to adjust for a perfect result. This is particularly important for delicate areas such as lips and periorbital area or region.
Redness might happen but will disappear within twenty-four hours. Bruising can occur when a vessel is pricked. This can be avoided by compressing several minutes after the injection. A significant oedema is possible especially if the injection is performed too quickly or in too large amount , and also with patients prone to swelling. This can be treated with oral administration of corticosteroids for few days.
Excessive volume may lead to "bumps" or "nodules", which can sometimes be sensitive. They will gradually disappear as long as they are not manipulated. Temporary hyperpigmentation especially on coloured, black or Asian skins have been reported. This is caused by injections made too superficial and also deposits of hemosiderine (blood pigment). Secondary localised oedemas are possible. These disappear over time, the product being completely resorbable in the long term. In case of persistence a small injection of hyaluronidase will help;
Given the many years in which hyaluronic acid has been used, tolerance has proved to be excellent. Patient satisfaction is as long as the correct product has been chosen in respect to skin type and area to be treated.
