There are many treatments focusing on fighting the signs of ageing.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) plays an important role in this field.
HA is a molecule naturally present in our body, especially in the skin and the subcutaneous tissue where it fills the spaces and contributes to skin hydration. With ageing the hyaluronic acid content in our skin decreases by about half, leaving less HA available for hydration. This leads to dry, dull skin, with lines and wrinkles. Therefore HA based products have been developed to balance this phenomenon.
It is very important to be able to count on the expertise of your cosmetic surgeon to get the best advise regarding the product that will be most adapted to your needs and desires.
These products are currently widely used to fill wrinkles and restore contours and volumes. It is mainly used in the face, but can also improve skin quality in the cleavage, and volumes in buttocks and other parts of the body.
In addition, in experienced hands, it is possible to correct a multitude of imperfections other than those related to ageing, such as a chin set too poteriorly or an irregular nasal dorsum.
It is also possible, with a good facial analysis, to modify and improve a sad or closed looking eyes, a tired or angry look or to give a more masculine or more feminine touch to the face, according to the desires of the patients.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally absorbed by the body, with a effect lasting from 6 to 24 months depending on the product used and the area treated.
