Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by the human body and present in skin, joints and eye tissue. It has been used for many years for injections to treat various age-related conditions, such as wrinkles and loss of facial volume. But what exactly are its effects? In this article, we'll take a closer look at what hyaluronic acid is and how it can be used to improve the quality of our skin.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a type of gel found naturally in the human body. It holds cells together and acts as a kind of "cement" to keep young tissues elastic and healthy. As we age, hyaluronic acid production declines and our cells can't form an adequate barrier to protect our skin from moisture and heat.

As a result, when our face begins to show signs of aging, applying hyaluronic acid can help reduce signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and under-eye puffiness. In addition, hyaluronic acid can be used to improve skin texture and give it a smoother, more youthful appearance.

How does hyaluronic acid work?

Hyaluronic acid is a molecule that binds to skin cells. The molecules are able to absorb up to 1,000 times their weight in water, making them highly effective at retaining moisture in the skin. Thus, hyaluronic acid injections absorb moisture from the air to form an invisible protective layer around the cells, preventing the penetration of harmful substances.

What's more, when injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid molecules stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps maintain skin suppleness and elasticity. This stimulation of collagen helps skin regain its tone and firmness, and better resist the effects of aging.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid?

Benefits for the skin

  • Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How is hyaluronic acid injected?

The hyaluronic acid product is injected directly into the skin to reach the deeper layers. The injection process can take from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area treated. A local anesthetic may be administered prior to treatment.

Once the injection is complete, the patient can resume normal activities without downtime. Redness, bruising and swelling may appear immediately after treatment, but generally disappear within a few days.

How much does hyaluronic acid injection cost?

The cost of hyaluronic acid injections depends on the type of product used, the volume to be injected and the number of treatments required. Most treatments cost between 300 and 500 euros, but some clinics offer lower rates.

What are the risks associated with hyaluronic acid injections?

Although complications are rare, there are certain risks associated with hyaluronic acid injections. These risks include

  1. Temporary or permanent redness.
  2. Swelling and bruising.
  3. Infections.
  4. Pigmented spots.
  5. Skin pain, tingling and numbness.

It's important to consult your dermatologist before undergoing hyaluronic acid treatment to ensure that you have no contraindications and are suitable for this type of treatment.

What alternatives are there to hyaluronic acid injections?

Alternatives to hyaluronic acid injections include creams based on hyaluronic acid, vitamins and minerals specially designed to improve skin hydration and firmness. In addition, non-invasive techniques such as chemical peels and lasers can be used to improve skin appearance and reduce the signs of aging.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural product renowned for its moisturizing and anti-aging properties. It is used to improve skin appearance and reduce the signs of aging, as well as to relieve joint pain and eye disorders. Hyaluronic acid injections are safe and relatively inexpensive, but they can involve certain risks. Therefore, it's important to discuss the benefits and risks with your dermatologist to determine whether this treatment is right for you.
