Softening the signs of old age
From the age of 40, many women – and more and more men – want to rejuvenate their facial expression and regain their firmness. Fine lines on the face and mainly around the eyes appear with time. They can be superficial or deeper, especially under the cheekbones and on either side of the mouth, creating a “hollow cheeks” effect and making you look tired.
Hyaluronic acid is an effective solution in many cases, to:
Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible, hydrating, and fully absorbable gel. This natural treatment is used to fill deep and superficial wrinkles, but also to structure or lift the volumes of the cheekbones, chin, temples, lips, hands or rework the bridge of the nose.
Used subtly in our clinics in Paris and London, hyaluronic acid allows a very natural result, providing a plumped and rested appearance without ever changing or freezing the expression of your face.
The choice of a more or less crosslinked (dense) hyaluronic acid will depend on the desired result and the quality of the patient’s skin.
Hyaluronic acid gel is a non-allergenic treatment.
A quick wrinkle treatment and facial contour repair session with an injection of hyaluronic acid lasts an average of 15 minutes.
Every session begins with a careful diagnostic examination of wrinkles and areas to be treated by the doctor.
Once the diagnosis has been established, the treatment has been defined and consent has been given, the doctor’s assistant performs an antiseptic cleansing of the skin and the application of an anaesthetic cream in order to carry out the perfectly painless treatment by injection of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid injections involve a micro-needle applied to few specific points or a flexible micro-cannula slipped under the skin, depending on the effect desired and the part of the face to be treated.
At the end of the treatment, the assistant evenly applies a refreshing and hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid to soothe the treated skin. The patient can resume the normal course of their day immediately because the injection of hyaluronic acid doesn’t cause major undesirable side effects. No hiding away. The show must go on.
The effects of a treatment with hyaluronic acid injections are immediate, with an optimal result after 3 to 4 weeks.
The skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid. The use of this gel is therefore perfectly compatible, non-allergenic and absorbable after 6 to 12 months depending on the crosslinking of the hyaluronic acid used.
