Hyaluronic acid

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

hyaluronic acidis a substance naturally present in our body and in particular an essential constituent of the dermis, the deep layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps keep skin hydrated and creates volume through its ability to bind to water molecules. As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid. The skin relaxes and appears thinner. It loses its shine and freshness. Unevenness, hollows and wrinkles appear, giving a dull and tired look.

For more than 20 years, laboratory-synthesized hyaluronic acid has been used in aesthetic medicine thanks to its exceptional hydration and volume-restoring properties.
The injection of hyaluronic acid helps reduce the visible signs of aging with immediate results and very few risks or side effects.

When is Hyaluronic Acid indicated?

Hyaluronic acid is used to fill in loss of volume, reduce wrinkles or restore a hydrated appearance to the skin. Hyaluronic acid comes in the form of an injectable gel, more or less cross-linked or hydrating depending on the desired result

Which areas of the face can be treated with hyaluronic acid?

Almost any area of the face can be improved by injections of hyaluronic acid, whether it is disharmony due to aging or simply to correct a defect such as dark circles, an embarrassing asymmetry or a mouth that is not plump enough.

Temples and cheekbones: As you age, the temples and cheekbones can become hollow. A deep injection of a very volumizing hyaluronic acid will give them a harmonious curve.

Dark circles: whether due to age or constitutional, dark circles make you look tired. Here too, hyaluronic acid is indicated to erase the hollows and harmonize the eye contour, sometimes associated with Botox or an intervention on the eyelids.

Nasolabial furrows, bitterness folds: filling them with hyaluronic acid will also have a radiant effect.

The mouth: Hyaluronic acid can plump up lips that are too thin, reduce fine lines around the mouth or simply give a more feminine curve.

But also: jowls, sagging of the oval of the face, the chin or the nose can also be corrected by injections.

Dr. Sophie Martella Favre is a specialist in plastic surgery and therefore knows the anatomy of your face perfectly. Aging alters the quality of the skin but also of the underlying muscles, fat and bone. The injection is sometimes made in the superficial dermis (fine wrinkles) and other times in depth just above the bone (dark circles, temples). As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Sophie Martella Favre is able to assess and precisely perform the treatment that will harmonize your face in a natural way.

Sometimes the combination of different treatments including Botox, a peeling or an intervention such as a blepharoplasty makes it possible to perfect the result.

There is also much more fluid hyaluronic acid which can restore dehydrated skin's curves and erase superficial fine lines on the cheeks, neck, décolleté and hands.

Dr. Sophie Martella Favre will examine you carefully and take the time to fully understand what bothers you and what you want to improve in your face.
As a plastic surgeon, she will be keen to harmonize your face in a natural way and may advise you on other treatments.
Hyaluronic acid is a very useful substance, but sometimes surgery is better than too much hyaluronic acid.

Injections of hyaluronic acid are done in the office and last from 15 to 60 minutes depending on their quantity. There is sometimes a little redness or a few bruises visible right after the treatment.
If sport and exposure to the sun, sauna or other excessive heat are to be avoided for 48 hours, professional and social activities can be resumed directly after treatment.
