Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic AcidHyaluronic acid injection is the ideal technique for filling wrinkles, restoring skin volume and sculpting facial contours.

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule naturally present in the dermis, joints and cartilage. The body produces it naturally to renew skin tissue and moisturize the skin.

The injectable hyaluronic acid used in aesthetic medicine and cosmetic surgery is identical to that produced by the body, and is obtained through biotechnological processes. Today, it is widely used and recognized for its skin tolerance and natural-looking properties. It is an absorbable product and its injection is different from botulinum toxin injection, but the treatments are complementary. Hyaluronic acid is very often used in combination with botulinum toxin to achieve the best possible results as part of a global approach.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?

The benefits of hyaluronic acid injections are numerous. Firstly, results are immediate and long-lasting, with a gradual improvement in the appearance of the skin in the weeks following treatment. What’s more, injections are minimally invasive and do not require anesthesia, enabling rapid recovery. Last but not least, hyaluronic acid is safe and well tolerated by most patients, with a very low risk of allergic reaction. It is a benchmark for anti-aging and wrinkle treatments in aesthetic medicine.

What are the applications of hyaluronic acid?

Wrinkle and volume fillers

Hollow, static wrinkles (nasolabial folds, bitterness folds, wrinkles around the mouth, etc.) give a sad or tired look. Filling these wrinkles with hyaluronic acid helps to give the face a more youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid can also be used to treat skin slackening by filling in volumes.

Hyaluronic acid can also be injected into the back of the hands to restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of prominent veins and tendons.

Plumping lips

Over time, lips naturally tend to lose volume, giving them a thinner appearance and less definition.
Hyaluronic acid injections can :

  • Redrawing the contour of the mouth
  • Redefining the Cupid’s bow
  • Increase lip volume for better symmetry
  • Moisturize lips

Medical rhinoplasty

Non-surgicalrhinoplasty (sometimes called “medical rhinoplasty” or “liquid rhinoplasty“) is a fast procedure for patients who do not wish to undergo surgery. It involves the use of a dermal filler of the hyaluronic acid type to :

  • Form a flat nasal bridge
  • Straightening a slightly slanted nose
  • Reduce the perception of a dorsal hump
  • Create better symmetry

Session sequence

A hyaluronic acid injection session always begins with a consultation with a doctor specialized in aesthetics. At Claris Clinic, injections are always carried out by specialized, experienced doctors (dermatologists, plastic surgeons, aesthetic physicians, etc.). During this consultation, the doctor will examine the area to be treated and discuss your medical history and expectations.

During treatment, the doctor cleans the area to be treated and then uses a fine needle to inject the hyaluronic acid more or less deeply, depending on the indication. The number of injections required will depend on the area treated and the extent of wrinkles. The session generally lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. An anaesthetic cream is sometimes proposed to increase comfort during the injection, for example in the lips.

After the injection, you can immediately return to your daily activities.

The doctor can also provide you with a cold “gel-pack” to cool the injected area and limit side effects (hematoma, redness, etc.).

Results are visible immediately and will improve over the following days. Slight swelling, hematoma or redness may occur, but will quickly disappear.

How long does the result last and is it immediate?

The duration of results from hyaluronic acid injections varies according to several factors, including the area treated, the type of hyaluronic acid used and the quantity injected. Results generally last between 6 and 18 months.

Results of hyaluronic acid injections are generally immediate, although some patients may experience slight swelling or bruising at the injection site, which may take a few days to resolve. Final results usually appear within a few days of treatment, once swelling and bruising have disappeared.

Is the result natural?

The result of hyaluronic acid injection will be very natural if it is performed by a qualified doctor experienced in aesthetics. The appearance of wrinkles is reduced and skin hydration is improved, without giving the face a frozen appearance, but rather adding radiance.

What precautions should I take before and after the session?

It’s important to tell your specialist if you’re ill, or if you’re taking any medication. Alcohol consumption before and after injections increases the risk of hematoma.

After the session, you should avoid moving your face for 3 hours and also avoid sauna, violent sports, any aesthetic procedure (peeling, waxing, etc.) on the treated area, as well as any compression of the area (swimming goggles, motorcycle helmet, etc.).

What are the possible complications?

Although hyaluronic acid injections are considered safe, it’s vital to turn to trained doctors who use high-quality hyaluronic acid to limit potential complications.

  • Redness, swelling, bruising or pain at the injection site: these side effects are generally mild and disappear spontaneously in the days following treatment.
  • Infections: although rare, infections may occur after an injection.
  • Allergic reactions: although very rare, it is possible to develop an allergic reaction to hyaluronic acid.
  • Granulomas: lumps or nodules may form under the skin after a hyaluronic acid injection. Although rare, these granulomas may require further treatment.
