Hyaluronic Acid

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most widely used substances in aesthetic medicine. It is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in our body, especially in the skin. This makes injecting hyaluronic acid very safe, with virtually no allergic reaction.

Its main function is to keep the skin hydrated, as it acts as a sponge, retaining large amounts of water and providing volume. It is also responsible for maintaining the skin’s firmness.

The hyaluronic acid’s capacity to retain moisture is highly relevant when treating skin ageing. When we are young, our skin retains water and maintains an adequate balance of moisture.

However, over time, and especially when over 35, the natural production of hyaluronic acid drops, which reduces firmness and volume and causes skin ageing.

Hyaluronic acid

The aim of a hyaluronic acid treatment is to restore the volume lost by the passage of time. However, we should not apply it in areas where there was never any volume. The intention is to recover the initial volume, avoiding exaggerations or extravagances.

The technique consists in injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid with a fine needle or microcannula, restoring the lost volume to the face and thus improving flaccidity and hydration. It is a very well tolerated treatment. However, you can use local anaesthesia if experiencing any discomfort.

It is carried out in consultation, and it takes between 15 and 30 min.

The average duration of the treatment ranges from nine months to approximately one year and a half, as the body’s reabsorption of hyaluronic acid varies according to the type of density employed, the area in which it is applied and the patient.
