As time goes by the skin loses the ability to retain water and produce substances that are responsible for the skin’s elasticity, firmness and tone.
These changes are attributed to genetic factors as well as lifestyle factors such as exposure to the sun and smoking.
In order to recover the loss of volume that appears in the face as time goes by, to correct facial lines and to regain a more youthful skin, fillers based on Hyaluronic Acid can be used.
These products are of very high quality and extremely safe and the possible side effects are absolutely minimal. Some temporary swelling and bruising in the areas treated is possible and if any slight asymmetry appears it can be easily corrected with a small touch-up.
It is extremely important to choose the right type of product for the specific problem for each individual patient. The patient should avoid exposing the area treated to the direct sun until the first few days have gone by so that the swelling disappears more quickly.
Patients can practically go back right away to their normal activities although it is not recomended to have this treatment done just a few hours before going to a social event.
