With age, sun and pollution appear wrinkles and blemishes. It is sometimes difficult for some people to accept it. However, there are solutions to its problems, including injections of hyaluronic acid.
To date, hyaluronic acid is the most powerful moisturizing molecule available. Essential for good skin health, hyaluronic acid is a major constituent of the dermis and epidermis. And for good reason, its main role is to regulate hydration and replenish skin cells. It refreshes a dull complexion, erases dark circles and hydrates dry skin.
Parmi les bienfaits des injections d’acide hyaluronique:
- It hydrates the skin: This active ingredient acts like a molecular sponge, it is capable of fixing up to 1,000 times its weight in water. It is thus particularly popular for taking care of dehydrated skin, as well as mature skin with sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines. Hyaluronic acid fills the intercellular spaces by combining with water, which hydrates, softens and tones the skin. The latter regains its elasticity and firmness.
- It forms a protective barrier against external aggressions: This ingredient contributes to the establishment of a skin barrier which protects the layers of the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays and free radicals.
- It participates in the healing of the skin: It calms any irritation and redness, and contributes to the reconstruction of damaged skin tissue.
The doctor injects the acid into the dermis a few millimeters deep. Depending on the number of wrinkles to be treated, a session lasts between 10 and 30 minutes. It is possible to ask the doctor if you are too sensitive to perform a small local anesthesia.
