The great efficiency of hyaluronic acid
Without any doubt, hyaluronic acid is one of the most used substances nowadays for the resolution of certain aesthetic problems of the skin. As the years go by, the skin starts losing its valued appearance and strength. In our attempt of keeping them we use creams and countless other products with one single goal: managing that as the time passes, no impact can be seen in our face.
Wrinkles, expression lines, crow’s feet… There’s always some kind of sign that proves that time goes by. In many cases, the appearance is something that people want to change, but the simple fact of hearing about the surgery scares them, which leads to them not changing to their desired look. Not long ago we were talking about collagen, today we’re going to deal with another recent and very popular topic: injections with hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide from the group of the glucosaminoglycanes, which means that it’s a sugar molecule that can be found naturally in our body. It’s usually found in the joints, the cartilages and the skin, and due to the course of time our body consumes its reserve and the concentration of hyaluronic acid starts decreasing. It’s used very frequently in medicine like for example traumatology, ophtalmology and also for aesthetic treatments.
Its main qualities are the hydration, since hyaluronic acid is capable of retaining great amounts of water around it, and its characteristics for filling tissues like it could be the case of wrinkles or expression signs.
This way, as we get older, the hyaluronic acid concentration goes down, causing a dehydrated appearance of the skin, and as a direct consequence, the formation of wrinkles and furrows is encouraged. This is where medicine gets involved, as the medical advances allowed proving that the injection of hyaluronic acid in areas like wrinkles or crow’s feet encourages the regeneration of a younger appearance..
It can be of animal or biological origin, depending on the manufacturer and the provider of each clinic, as well as the goal it will be used to achieve.
The hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our body, which makes this treatment 100% biocompatible.
The treatment usually has a duration of 30 minutes to 1 hour, this depends on the area to be treated and the amount of product that will be injected. In some cases, local anaesthesia will be applied in order to make the treatment the least painful it can possibly be.
The application method is the same that we use with the collagen injections, we will proceed to its infiltration with the help of a very fine needle, adapted to every type of treatment, and the wrinkle or the area to be treated will be filled with the goal of regaining the tone and the smooth and tight appearance of that area.
After the application, the skin will be swollen, this swelling will slowly fade and we will be able to see the real results afterwards. Usually ice is applied to make this process faster, and after a few days the appearance of the area will be great and we’ll be able to confirm the excellent results.
Advantages of hyaluronic acid
One of the main advantages of hyaluronic acid is its easy application, as one session of 30 minutes already makes it possible fighting ageing signs and obtaining magnificient results.
The price. Without any doubt, when a patient who is looking for some small reworks hears the prices of the aesthetic surgeries he would need to undergo in order to achieve the results he is looking for, he is usually disappointed. Hyaluronic acid allows performing an aesthetic treatment with great results for a price of 300€ that includes a personalised study, an evaluation and follow-up of the results after the injection and the application of hyaluronic acid itself.
One of the advantages compared to collagen is its durability, in some cases and depending on the treated area, the results obtained after the application can last up to one year or even more.
It’s not necessary performing allergy tests, the chance of an allergy or a rejection is minimal, which is an insignificant percentage compared to the good effects and the results that are achieved with this treatment.
Disadvantages of hyaluronic acid
Surely, its main disadvantage is that its not a permanent treatment, it’s usually performed in multiple sessions and the durability of its results ranges between 9 months and 1 year, that’s why usually a follow-up is arranged with the specialist who performs the treatment as well as different dates for successive applications, in case the patient wants the effect to last longer.
It has some side effects, but these are usually of a low impact, like irritation, redness, swelling or hypersensitivity of the treated area. Normally they slowly disappear after the injection.
Its use is not recommended during pregnancy, for minors and in case the patient needs to undergo a treatment that uses radiofrequency.
Lastly, it should be commented on that hyaluronic acid has been winning part of the market share compared to collagen and that it’s a great alternative for those who want to regain a strong skin in their face without having to undergo an aesthetic surgery with the risks that this involves.
