Latest-generation treatments, such as hyaluronic acid with incorporated lidocaine, can provide results against wrinkles without going through the operating room
Many times we do not want a strong aesthetic change. We only want to recover the skin that we had years ago. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and the passage of time produce quality changes in our skin. Fortunately it is becoming easier to find improved treatments in surgery and aesthetic medicine, which help to fill in wrinkles, restore lost volume and improve skin structure.
Hyaluronic acid with incorporated lidocaine
When we want these effects, we look for instantaneous and lasting aesthetic results , such as those provided by the infiltration of hyaluronic acid with incorporated lidocaine, practically imperceptible. The patient should not worry about the nuisance of the infiltration because the incorporation to normal life is immediate and its results can be appreciated instantly. Its results, proven in more than 10 million treatments practiced all over the world, are long lasting, although not permanent, favoring a natural beauty that does not affect expression or facial movements.
What is the treatment?
A treatment with these infiltrations of hyaluronic acid with incorporated lidocaine lasts about 15-30 minutes. It is done by injecting, with a fine needle, hyaluronic acid into the skin to fill wrinkles like the nasolabial fold, formed between the nose and the corners of the mouth. It is also used to give greater elasticity to wrinkles of the upper lip. These wrinkles are typical in people around 40 years old, age in which the contour of the upper lip loses volume.
After the injection, the patient can perform totally normal life. After 21 days, optionally, a small retouch can be made. It is important to know that it is a treatment for medium and deep wrinkles, so we will rule out the infiltrations of hyaluronic acid with lidocaine for frontal wrinkles or crow's feet, being more indicated other products such as Botox or vitamins.
The hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed in a progressive and natural way and, consequently, it will be necessary to repeat the treatment to maintain the result. Infiltrations of hyaluronic acid with lidocaine may be repeated when the patient wants and the doctor advises. It has no harmful effects, so that if the patient does not want to repeat the treatment you will not see any negative consequences on your skin. On the other hand, if you decide to inject hyaluronic acid into your skin, you will see how it moisturizes and improves its appearance.
Why are wrinkles formed?
As we age, the quality of the skin changes. Collagen and elastic fibers decrease and the quality of hyaluronic acid in the body is reduced. This decreases the elasticity of the skin, increasing the roughness and cutaneous dryness. In part, this is due to intrinsic factors that are difficult to change, such as the genetic code and the biological clock. However, there are also extrinsic factors, lifestyle factors, which we can control, to some extent, to reduce skin aging.
Although it is impossible to return the passage of time, we can restore the balance of hydration of the skin, improve the structure and skin elasticity or fill in wrinkles and folds restoring facial volume.
What is hyaluronic acid?
It is one of the most versatile and fascinating substances in nature. It is found in our body and in most living organisms. It has many functions, from providing elasticity to the skin to lubricate the joints. Hyaluronic acid binds with large amounts of water.
In its natural form in the body, hyaluronic acid lasts only a few days. Therefore, its stabilization process results in minimal modification but with lasting aesthetic results. In addition, its biosynthetic production makes previous tests unnecessary to rule out allergies and rejections.
One of the commercial versions of this product is a gel of crystalline purity that we inject into the skin in small quantities to restore its volume and structure.
