To remedy some of the consequences that the passage of time leaves on our skin (sagging, dryness, lack of elasticity, appearance of wrinkles and diminished regenerative capacity), years ago began to use in Aesthetic Medicine hyaluronic acid.



Advantages of hyaluronic acid in the skin


The main advantage of hyaluronic acid is its ability to attract and retain water, which allows rehydration of the skin and make it look smoother; In addition, it increases its thickness and conceals the grooves.


Until now hyaluronic acid was injected at medium and deep levels of the skin, so it was not possible to treat those known as crow's feet or superficial wrinkles that are in a more superficial plane.



Hyaluronic acid through the Blanching technique


In the last few months we have begun to apply with great success the technique Blanching , (whose name comes from Blanqueo, because it produces a temporary bleaching in the zone of the injection), that consists in the superficial infiltration (between 10 and 12 degrees of inclination in The skin) of the latest generation of dynamic cross-linking hyaluronic acids (more cohesive and elastic).


This new protocol, which is approved by the FDA, requires a lot of experience and skill from the doctor who applies it, since it employs a very superficial infiltration plane, leaving microdeposits of hyaluronic acid right in the cleft Of the wrinkle; In this way, lumps, nodules and bluish coloration are avoided.



Areas to be treated with Blanching technique


The main areas in which Blanching can be made are: crow's feet, nasolabial folds, puppet lines, eyebrows and any fine wrinkles on the face; Even acne marks.



Results of Blanching Technique


It is possible to erase fine wrinkles without affecting the expression and also providing a visible moisturization in the skin.
