Purpose of hyaluronic acid injections
The body’s natural ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines with age. This contributes to the loss of volume and increase in wrinkles on the face and backs of the hands.
Hyaluronic acid, which is naturally present in the body, can be reproduced in laboratories by genetic engineering. It moisturises the skin and stimulates fibroblasts – the cells producing collagen and elastin that are closely linked to youthful skin.
Benefits of hyaluronic acid injections
The face is resculpted; the cheekbones, cheeks and temples become fuller; wrinkles, nasolabial folds, bitterness folds and other wrinkles around the lips are smoothed out; hollow rings are corrected. The skin is remoisturised and the lip contours are redefined. The backs of the hands become fuller, which also hides visible veins.
Expected outcome of hyaluronic acid injections
The results are seen immediately and last 1 year on average.
