Hyaluronic acid is an injectable crystal-clear gel which may be injected into the skin to lift a wrinkle or fold.
One treatment session takes about 20 minutes. The results can be seen immediately and no scars or other marks are left on the face for longer. Even though the treated area can swell up somewhat, it is quite possible to meet other people and work as normal.
Hyaluronic acid injection has no risk of allergic reactions. Therefore, as far as allergies are concerned, it is perfectly safe to use it instantly without pre-testing.
The duration of the effect of hyaluronic acid treatment is very individual. It depends on many factors, such as the specific features of each product, the structure of the skin, lifestyle and age as well as on the degree of perfection demanded by the individual. However, we know that for the majority of the patients treated about 50-80 % of the effect remains up to 20 months. Most people choose to have a touch-up done within a year of the original treatment.
Complications such as local inflammation are rare and temporary. If local reaction occurs, this is presented as granulom having the appearance of a bulging tumour.
