The aging process is relentless and occurs for everyone respecting individual genetic characteristics. In addition to spots, aging is characterized by the presence of expression lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, the effect of gravity and flaccidity, and several of these conditions can be minimized with aesthetic treatments. One of the most common nowadays is the facial filling with hyaluronic acid, which has had more and more adherents and very little risk of complications.

Going beyond the care against aging, the facial filling with hyaluronic acid can be done as a form of prevention and even for facial harmonization, being a palliative to plastic surgery. With strong hydrating power, hyaluronic acid can promote rejuvenation quickly, being minimally invasive.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a biopolymer formed by glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine naturally present in the body. It has a high water absorption power and this is one of the things that makes it filler: the acid becomes a kind of sponge filled with water that expands through the creases, making them bulky.

That’s why the facial filler with hyaluronic acid has had so many followers. It fills in the necessary places in an extremely natural way, reorganizes the facial structure and corrects defects and asymmetries.

Hyaluronic acid can be used in several facial regions, which is the biggest difference in the treatment when compared to botulinum toxin A. The treatment with the toxin is limited to some facial regions, namely: forehead, close to the eyes (feet of chicken) and in the glabella.

the facial filler with hyaluronic acid helps to treat the formation of these wrinkles and expression lines. Not to mention that the aesthetic procedure can be used as a way to correct, structure and support the face!

Where can hyaluronic acid be applied?

Much more eclectic than many aesthetic procedures, the facial filling with hyaluronic acid has as its main function the facial harmonization, that is, to improve small common asymmetries in the face, to restructure and volumize. Hyaluronic acid can be applied in several places on the face, which are:

  • On the forehead;
  • At the temples;
  • On cheekbones;
  • Around the eyes;
  • On the lips;
  • In the zygomatic region;
  • On the dark circles;
  • Noment;
  • In the jaw
  • In the nose

In all these regions, the main function is to fill and restore volume, being extremely effective in combating aging, having its effect seen immediately.

How is the facial filling done with hyaluronic acid?

As already mentioned, the treatment is minimally invasive and carried out in the office using local anesthetics.

It is important for the patient to be sure that the chosen professional is skilled for such an aesthetic procedure. Even though the risk of rejection is nil, since hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by the body, it is important that these professionals know how to act quickly and have access to hyaluronidase, an enzyme that cuts the effect of hyaluronic acid, in cases of complications.

The facial filling with hyaluronic acid is quick and right after application the patient is released to return to daily activities. In the procedure room and with the skin sanitized, the plastic surgeon will mark the places where the application of hyaluronic acid is necessary.

The acid is applied to the sites with the aid of extremely fine needles or cannulas, and the acid injection can be more superficial, even in the deepest layer of the face, close to the bone, depending on the needs of each patient.

The intention, in addition to minimizing wrinkles, furrows and expression marks, is to structure and shape, which is why it is an excellent method to combat dark circles, to volumize the cheekbones and jaw contour.

Another advantage of the facial filler with hyaluronic acid is that the substance, due to its high power to absorb water, provides a powerful hydration, which helps maintain the facial skin always young.

Care after the procedure

As it is a simple aesthetic procedure, care is minimal. Small swelling may appear in more sensitive regions after the filling with hyaluronic acid, and this is minimized with hourly cold compresses. To expose yourself to the sun it is necessary to use sunscreen, which must be reapplied throughout the day.

After the application, after 15 days, the patient must return to the office for evaluation of the result and reapplication of hyaluronic acid at certain points, if necessary. Otherwise, it’s normal life! The patient can exercise, maintain the daily skin care routine — for women, makeup can be used — and for men, shaving is also possible without causing complications.

Treatment duration time

The only counterpoint regarding the facial filling with hyaluronic acid is that it is not permanent. As already informed, the acid is produced naturally by the body, that is, even being a synthetic product (made in the laboratory) it will be 100% reabsorbed by the body. Thus, the effect varies between 18 and 24 months, on average, being necessary to redo the procedure after this period to maintain the results.

Many patients even take longer, because depending on the region where hyaluronic acid was applied, its effect can be prolonged. Doctors estimate that this is directly related to home care, especially with the use of treatment creams that contain the active ingredient.
