Hyaluronic acid therapy has become a highly sought-after alternative in aesthetic treatment services as it is a safe non-surgical procedure that naturally improves facial lines and fades wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid, or filler as we all call it, is a product composed of the natural substance of the body’s connective tissues. Hyaluronic acid is found in particular in the skin, in bone cartilage, in tendons, in the walls of the aorta, in the umbilical cord, etc. Being such a natural ingredient, injecting the filler into the skin does not pose a risk of infection or local inflammation, and does not require testing on the skin before use. Small amounts of acid are injected with very fine needles to stimulate increased production of hyaluronic acid from the skin itself. Depending on the wrinkles being treated, the hyaluronic acid injection procedure takes twenty to forty minutes with minimal discomfort to the patient as the medical staff applies anesthetic cream before the procedure begins. At the DaVINCI Clinic, treatments with hyaluronic acid are performed by a dermatologist.
Where can hyaluronic acid be injected?
How long does the hyaluronic acid injection last?
Hyaluronic acid is not permanent. Hyaluronic acid usually lasts 4-6 months. As soon as it is injected into the skin, filler immediately corrects wrinkles or improves volume in the applied area. At first, the result is stable and quite satisfactory, but as the weeks go by, it gradually falls and is absorbed by your body. To maintain the initial result, it is advisable to repeat the treatment 2-3 times a year.
