The application of Hyaluronic Acid (known as injectable lifting) is the most widely- spread non-invasive technique for the filling and smoothing of the wrinkles on the face and neck as well as the body, in the case of loss of volume due to aging, marks or disfigurements.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural ingredient of the human skin and has the ability to retain water in the skin in order to provide firmness, elasticity and volume. However, as time goes by, the natural production of Hyaluronic Acid by the skin is degraded and, as a result, sagging and loss of volume are experienced as well as shrinkage of the characteristics (i.e. full lips) and an image of aging skin prevails.
For these reasons, Hyaluronic Acid produced in the laboratory is implanted in human body, “filling” the gaps and supporting the tissues that may have lost the natural volume. Hyaluronic Acid injectable fillers can be implanted fast and painlessly with immediate results. In our clinic, we use exclusively branded products, fully certified by CE and FDA.
The injections can be implanted on:
- Cheeks, nose and nasolabial
- Marionette lines
- Around the eyes (crow’s feet, tear troughs, frown lines)
- Neck (neck lines), chin (mental crease)
- Bust, décolleté
- Wrinkled hands
The effects usually last between 10-15 months, depending on the individual patient, the area and the extent of the problem and the quantity being implanted.
No complications have been reported after long-standing use or immediately after the injection. However, straight after the implantation there is a slight possibility of temporary bruising, swelling or slight ache, which resolve within 3 days. The result is optimized within 15 days.
