Many times we do not want a strong aesthetic change. Only wish we had that skin recover years ago. Ultraviolet radiation (UV ) from the sun, as well as over time we produce quality changes in the skin. But fortunately, science progresses rapidly and is becoming more common to find upgraded in the field of cosmetic surgery and medical treatments, which help us to fill wrinkles, restoring lost volume and improving the dermal structure.

As we age, the skin quality changes. The collagen and elastic fibers and decrease the quality of the body's own hyaluronic acid is reduced. This results in a decrease in skin elasticity, an increase in the roughness and skin dryness. In part this is due to intrinsic factors that are difficult to change, such as the genetic code and the biological clock of each. However, there are also extrinsic factors, lifestyle factors, we can control to some extent, to reduce skin aging.

When we want these effects, we seek instant and lasting aesthetic results, as provided by the infiltration of hyaluronic acid with lidocaine built, which is almost imperceptible. The patient should not have to worry about the hassle of infiltration because the incorporation to normal life is immediate and results can be seen instantly. Moreover, their results, proven in over 10 million treatments performed worldwide, are durable, though not permanent, encouraging a natural beauty that does not affect the expression or facial movement.


Treatment with these injections only lasts about 15 - 30 mins. It is performed by injecting the hyaluronic acid with a fine needle into the skin to fill wrinkles, for example, the nasolabial folds, which form between the nose and the corners of the lips; and also used to give more elasticity to the upper lip wrinkles. These wrinkles are inherent in people around 40 years, age at which the contour of the upper lip loses volume.

After the injection, the patient can now make totally normal life. However, after 21 days, if desired, some small touch can be performed.

Hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed progressively and naturally and, consequently, will be necessary to repeat treatment to maintain results. It is a treatment for their properties, can be repeated when the patient and the physician so warrant, thus adapting to its own time. Additionally, no harmful effects, so that if the patient does not want to repeat the treatment will not see any negative impact on your skin. And conversely, if you decide to inject hyaluronic acid in your skin, as vera moisturizes and improves their appearance.

The hyaluronic acid

It is one of the substances of nature most versatile and fascinating. It is in our body as well as in most of the rest of living organisms. It has many functions, from providing elasticity to the skin to lubricate joints. Hyaluronic acid binds large quantities of water and this important property underlies the characteristics of products containing stabilized hyaluronic acid of animal origin (known as NASHA, for its acronym in English ).

In its natural form in the body, hyaluronic acid lasts only a few days. Therefore, the process of stabilization results in modified minimal but provides a lasting aesthetic results. In addition, its biosynthetic production makes them unnecessary tests to rule out previous allergies and rejections.

One of the commercial versions of this product is a crystal clear gel that is injected in the skin in small amounts to restore volume and structure.
