What are hyaluronic acid injections?
Hyaluronic acid is an essential skin component. It acts like a sponge that retains water and keeps the skin moisturized, plumped and healthy.
As we lose 50 % of our hyaluronic acid between the age of 40 and 50 years old2, the skin becomes dry, thin and fragile. In order to help reduce the signs of ageing, hyaluronic acid gels can be injected within the skin, where it will act as a filler or a “Beauty Booster”.
|Your pre-treatment consultation with the practitioner who will be carrying out the hyaluronic acid injection is very important.|
The practitioner uses a pre-filled sterile filler syringe and a fine needle (or a cannula). The depth of the injection depends on the type of hyaluronic acid gel and the desired results. Superficial injections efficiently hydrate the skin and revive its glow. Deeper injections fill wrinkles and create volume. In order to optimize your comfort during the injection sessions, Teoxane created the Teosyal® PureSense line with integrated anesthetic (lidocaine). After injecting the hyaluronic acid, the practitioner gently massages the injected area to mold the product. The injection session lasts around 20 minutes.
