Why do you have to moisturize the skin?

With the passage of time there is a physiological and progressive loss in the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin. This leads to the appearance of wrinkles and dry skin. To try to stop this process it is advisable to restore hyaluronic acid deposits. This can be done in different ways, always must be individualized according to the expectations of each patient, skin type, life habits and treatments that have been done previously.

 

 

 

What treatments exist to maintain hydration in the skin?

There are several treatments whose objective is to increase the levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin and thus improve the hydration of the skin and obtain a smoother, brighter and brighter skin. There are minimally invasive treatments such as microinjections of hyaluronic acid and topical treatments whose main molecule is retinoic acid. Retinoic acid increases the endogenous synthesis of hyaluronic acid, which allows to show more hydrated skin. In addition, these treatments are often combined with laser treatments and good photoprotection habits.. In this way we optimize the results and maintain them in the long term.

 

What is the injection of hyaluronic acid to moisturize the skin?

With the microinjections of hyaluronic acid what we intend is to restore the hyaluronic acid that has been lost with the physiological aging of the skin. Previously we prepared the patient, we applied a topical anesthetic for at least 1 hour before the procedure that was removed at the time of performing this technique. There are 3 consecutive sessions separated by a period of between 2 and 4 weeks. It is recommended later, after a period of time, generally between 6 and 12 months, depending on the characteristics of the patient's skin, to repeat the session in order to optimize and maintain the long-term results. Different body areas can be treated. The skin that is most often treated is the skin of the face, the back of the hands, the skin of the neck and the skin of the neckline.. The treatment is minimally invasive, it is not necessary to go through the operating room, it is very painless and the main side effect that appears is the appearance of bruises at the injection sites that resolve spontaneously. It must be said that the results obtained with this technique are really good and lasting.
