Hyaluronic acid, a component of our skin, gradually disappears over the years. Tissues sag and wrinkles can form. This absorbable product helps to fill in wrinkles, increase lip volume and reduce dark circles, thereby combating the signs of ageing and fatigue.

The injection of hyaluronic acid stimulates the synthesis of collagen so as to prevent the wrinkle from regaining its initial appearance, even when the product is reabsorbed.

Injections of hyaluronic acid are carried out in the Geneva or Genolier Clinics on wrinkles in the nasolabial folds, perioral wrinkles and lips. The product can be absorbed in 6, 8 or even 12 months, depending on the patient, and fills in wrinkles harmoniously, making them disappear.

Hyaluronic acid injections can also be used to increase the volume of the cheeks and fill in facial hollows. In these cases, the product remains in place for around 18 to 24 months.

Who is hyaluronic acid suitable for?

Hyaluronic acid has the advantage of being compatible with all skin types and all ages. It is obviously ideal for dry and mature skin because of its moisturising and anti-ageing properties, but it can also help oily complexions. Oily and combination skin still needs hydration, and the lightweight hyaluronic acid formulation is perfect for providing the moisture the skin needs.

Injecting hyaluronic acid is also aimed at sensitive skin prone to imperfections, as it helps to calm the skin, while protecting it with its antioxidant properties.



After the hyaluronic injection

As mentioned above, hyaluronic acid injections are generally well tolerated at all ages. During the treatment, minor discomfort may be experienced, mainly due to the injection itself. There may be some redness, swelling and tenderness in the injected area, which normally disappears after a few hours or days.

And to avoid side effects and allergic reactions in some people, aesthetic specialists require a skin allergy test depending on individual circumstances before injecting hyaluronic acid.

Immediately visible effects!

Whether the aim is to fill in wrinkles and dark circles, increase the volume of the lips or other objectives, the results will be visible as soon as the session is over. These results will continue to improve over the next few days, as the hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body.

Whatever your condition and whatever the effects of ageing on your skin, hyaluronic acid could be the solution to take years off your appearance. Don't hesitate to ask Dr Elias, your plastic surgeon in Geneva, for advice!
