Do you want to improve the appearance of your face?
El ácido hialurónico es una sustancia natural de los del tejidos del cuerpo humano, especialmente abundante en tejidos conectivos, que se aplica como relleno en tratamientos estéticos para mejorar el aspecto de la piel, proporcionar elasticidad y aportar volumen en áreas específicas, principalmente del rostro.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance of the tissues, especially abundant in connective tissues. It is applied as a filler in aesthetic treatments to improve the appearance of the skin, provide elasticity and provide volume in specific areas, mainly of the face.
It consists of the injection of hyaluronic acid inside the wrinkle, which allows its restructuring and practical disappearance. Its application in dermis or hypodermis also allows the improvement of skin depressions, scars, tissue atrophies. The technique will vary depending on the location of the wrinkle and its depth.
The appearance of grooves is mainly due to the flaccidity of the tissues of the face. These typically are the fold between the nose and the cheek (nasogenian) and the “marionette” lines (from the corner of the mouth to the base of the chin). With the hyaluronic acid filler it is possible to tighten the skin to restore firmness and “erase” these grooves
Although the filling, profiling and remodeling of lips has been done for many years, the techniques and products have changed a lot, allowing us to offer different options according to the wishes of each one.
Hyaluronic acid allows us to add volume to the cheekbone area with two objectives:
Restructuring seeks to replace the volume and structure of the face, respecting the original appearance of each person. It is a very personalized treatment in which we work together with each patient, improving to where each one needs
The chin brings harmony above all to our profile. When we talk about chin we must differentiate between the correction of the projection, and the shape and size. Depending on what we want, hyaluronic acid filler is applied at different key points. We do not change the natural shape and take into account the morphological characteristics of men and women
Although, classically, the changes in the shape and size of the nose have been corrected with surgery (rhinoplasty), in certain cases it is possible to hide small imperfections, using a dermal filler implant such as hyaluronic acid, so the treatment it is much less invasive
The appearance of a circle around the eye gives an expression of tiredness and sadness to the face. This is the area called “tear trough”. Filling with hyaluronic acid in the area of the dark circles reconstructs the sagging that occurs and eliminates these effects, bringing rejuvenation to the eyes.
The objective is to inject a small amount of hyaluronic acid in 8 key points of facial support. In this way it is possible to improve the appearance of the face without providing large volumes, so the naturalness and freshness of the result is its success..
After the treatment, you can continue with the normal rhythm of life, except for sun exposure during the first days, and sauna or pool activities. The results are seen immediately, being better after a week or two.
Although after implantation of fillers, redness or bruising may appear, they disappear spontaneously and, in the meantime, it is possible to hide them with makeup. Some local inflammation may also appear for a few day.
Since hyaluronic acid is a resorbable material, there is a need to periodically repeat implants to maintain the results achieved. These repetitions are part of the therapeutic protocol, and usually the maintenance of the treatment requires less product than the initial treatment, as long as the revision periods suggested by the specialist are respected.

Yes, hyaluronic acid is safe when used following proper protocols. Side effects are mild and temporary, such as redness, swelling and bruising. Rarely, more serious complications can occur, such as infection or allergic reactions, especially granulomas, but these are very rare.
Most patients experience little or no pain during the treatment, as a topical anesthetic cream is applied prior to the procedure and the hyaluronic acid also contains local anesthetic. If the patient experiences any discomfort, ice can be applied to reduce the sensation of pain.
The duration of the effect of hyaluronic acid treatment varies depending on the type of treatment and the area treated, but usually lasts between 6 and 18 months. After this time, the hyaluronic acid is naturally reabsorbed by the body and the results gradually fade.
The most common side effects include redness, swelling and bruising in the treated area. These side effects usually disappear within a few days. Rarely, more serious complications such as infection or allergic reactions may occur, but these are very rare.
It is recommended to avoid intense exercise and sun exposure for the first 24 hours after treatment. After that time, you may return to your normal routine.
