What are hyaluronic acid injectables?
Hyaluronic acid is found in the human body composition, however with the natural aging process it is lost from the body. In this way, the elasticity and firmness of the skin becomes less and less, leading to the appearance of wrinkles.
To recover the naturally lost hyaluronic acid, at Ideal Plastic Surgery we inject this substance directly into the skin through microinjections. This keeps the tissues in good conditions because we’re injecting properties that attract and retain water in the tissues, giving a fresher and more youthful appearance.
By injecting hyaluronic acid, we promote the production of more of this substance in the body, favoring the formation of collagen and the proper functioning of the skin and its tissues.
Hyaluronic acid is IDEAL because it can help you to:
- Prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Bring firmness and elasticity to the skin.
- Promote the creation of collagen and skin elastin
- Fill in areas that have lost volume
- Instantly fill in wrinkles
- Reduce open pores
- Hydrate lips, smoothing and rejuvenating peribuccal wrinkles.
- Restore hydration levels in the skin.
- It is a non-surgical, outpatient procedure.
- It offers total safety
- It is a substance that can be reabsorbed by our own body.
- The results can be seen immediately
- It can be performed at any time
- It is a totally safe treatment, it does not cause allergies and the body does not reject it.
Who is the ideal candidate?
This procedure is ideal for people who wish to prevent the signs of aging such as sagging skin, loss of volume, expression lines or wrinkles.
It is also recommended for those who want to improve the hydration and luminosity of the skin, redesigning the contours of their lips through lip contouring.
In older people, fillers help to fill lost volume in the skin and stimulate the creation of collagen itself, in order to have a more youthful and fresh appearance.
The hyaluronic acid treatment we offer at Ideal Plastic Surgery generally lasts between 6 months to a year, depending on the product used and the conditions of each patient.
For the next application, smaller doses of the product will be needed (approximately half the amount of product applied in the first treatment 6 months ago). If you wish to maintain the results, it is recommended to repeat the procedure at least every 6 months.
Hyaluronic acid fills wrinkles or deep lines, while botulinum toxin paralyzes the muscles to prevent wrinkles from movement.
- Hyaluronic acid provides volume, botulinum toxin does not.
- The effect of the filler is immediate, and its final result is seen in 2 weeks, while the botulinum toxin effect is seen after 3 days and its final result in maximum 10 days.
- The effect of both is temporary and do not last the same: hyaluronic acid fillers effects last, depending on the type of filler, the area treated and the speed at which each person absorbs it, can last up to 12 months; botulinum toxin lasts 4 to 6 months.
Hyaluronic acid is injected into the wrinkle or deep line to be filled, usually the nasolabial fold, while botulinum toxin is applied on facial muscles and expression lines, usually between the eyebrows, forehead, and crow's feet.
