Hyaluronic acid (hyaluronic acid) has been one of the top products in aesthetic medicine for several years. Originating from a natural source, this molecule is perfectly well tolerated and is used for anti-aging, mesotherapy, or topical treatment. It is a physiological filler that provides hydration and volume to the skin.
How does hyaluronic acid work on the face?
Hyaluronic acid, if either transcutaneous or injectable, is a natural filler with a more or less volumizing effect.
What is hyaluronic acid ?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally the primary component of the fundamental substance of the dermis, which nourishes and supports the epidermis. It is a colloid gel, defined by a very strong water affinity, called a molecular sponge. It is therefore the one that gives the skin its smoothness, hydration and volume.
A young person in good health synthesizes 5 grams per day, but this production ends up losing quality and quantity as we age: this is how our skin loses its volume, causing sagging of the face and static wrinkles by "fracturing" the epidermis, which is no longer supported These are the main effects of aging the skin.
To reduce these effects, one solution is to introduce hyaluronic acid to the tissues: it is always reversible because hyaluronic acid is a resorbable product.
Which hyaluronic acid should be chosen for face injections?
Like any macromolecule, hyaluronic acid can comprise a varied number of units, defining its molecular weight. The higher it is, the more volumizing the hyaluronic acid, the longer it takes to be resorbed and thus to have a lasting effect. On the other hand, hyaluronic acid, which is too volumizing, cannot spread through the skin because it is too large: it usually needs a fairly deep intradermal injection.
A very micronized and not very volumizing small hyaluronic acid, such as Skinbooster®, is therefore ideal for providing volume to the lips while maintaining a natural look or rehydrating the skin.
Moderately cross-linked hyaluronic acid (Restylane®) is more recommended to fill most static wrinkles in the lower third of the face, smoothing them out.
A typical example of highly volumizing hyaluronic acid is Restylane Lyft-Perlane ®, which is perfect for restoring volume to the chin or filling a deep nasolabial fold.
Non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid may also be administered to facial dermal tissue through mesotherapy or with a cosmetic laser such as LaseMD®.
Hyaluronic acid can also be found in a number of premium facial cosmetic treatments.
What are the indications of hyaluronic acid for the face?
Our Dubai Esthetic Doctor will be able to work on the various natural properties of hyaluronic acids, depending on the desired effect.
Reshaping facial contours with profiloplasty
On a face with blemishes, hyaluronic acid can rebuild volume to reshape face contours without surgery through profiloplasty.
Medical genioplasty for the filling of the retrogenie (receding chin) or chin fold.
-Medical rhinoplasty after improper surgery or as a first-line treatment for the smoothing of the osteo-cartilaginous bump, for example.
Jaw-contouring to redefine the shape of a jaw and make it more assertive and manly.
Combat the signs of aging of the face with a medical facelift
Hyaluronic acid is the top product for fold filling (static wrinkles), either alone or during a medical facelift.
- Fight the sagging of the oval face by restoring the volume of the hollow temples, the cheeks, the cheekbones...
- Filling the static wrinkles at the edge of the face, such as the bitterness fold, the perioral wrinkles, the nasolabial fold...
- Rejuvenate your eyes by correcting dark circles. Hyaluronic acid injections enable to restore toned skin with a more radiant face and a sharper, tighter contour.
Change the shape of the lips with injections of hyaluronic acid.
Volumizing hyaluronic acid allows to correct thin lips, whether natural or due to aging. The practitioner can work on their shape for a fuller, more voluptuous lip with optimal hydration.
Rehydrate the skin and get more radiance with hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid injections on the face help restore the skin's moisture, making the complexion more radiant, with a more balanced skin texture and less dilated pores. The skin, plumped up, is more gorgeous and more sensual.
Even pigmented dark circles are handled, because the light pigmentation is hidden, which almost appears to reopen the eyes.
