With age, our skin gradually gets thinner, drier and loses its elasticity due to the decreasing of hyaluronic acid that is found in the composition of collagen, providing the elasticity of the skin. As a consequence, folds and wrinkles formed on the skin as a result of the movements of our mimic muscles turn into permanent marks in time, and these marks gradually deepen. With stabilized hyaluronic acid gels, the most preferred ones among different filling injections that are applied to the face, hyaluronic acid that is lost in time is replaced and the wrinkles, irregularities are eliminated. Hyaluronic acid, which has the capability of retaining water, provides moisture and fullness to the injection area and yields a young look and since it has no effect on mimic muscles, preserves the natural expressions all the time.
Hyaluronic acid injections are one of the most frequently performed facial aesthetic interventions that provides a smooth skin and also that make the contours explicit and especially the lips full. Since the applied hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body in time, its effect decreases within 6-12 months, however this period varies according to the personal features and the sites of application. It is not necessary to make preparations or perform a test before the application of hyaluronic acid injections that yield effect just after an application period of a couple of minutes.
Though the process generally does not yield a significant pain or discomfort, it is recommended to use superficial anesthesia especially before the injections that are performed to fill the lips.
