The hyaluronic acid injection procedure
During the first appointment, a personalized diagnosis is established by your physician. An anesthetic cream can be applied one hour before the treatment, depending on your level of sensitivity.
Details of the procedure
A hyaluronic acid injection session usually lasts between 15 and 60 minutes. The duration varies according to your personalized treatment plan.
Before the session, your aesthetic doctor will take pictures of your face to better appreciate the treatment to be carried out and, later on, the results. He will then mark the injection points with a dedicated pencil.
After disinfecting the face, the hyaluronic acid is injected with a fine needle or a micro-cannula. The hyaluronic acids used at Laclinic contain anaesthetic products to minimise pain.
The number of syringes required varies according to the extent of the desired correction. The results will be more spectacular when several areas are treated during the same session to achieve a global result.
A perfect knowledge of anatomy is essential to satisfy the most complex requests and to avoid complications that could prove to be dramatic.
A precise and soft gesture allows to minimize the traumatisms on the skin. After the injection, your physician will massage the treated areas to optimize the uniformity of the correction. You will be able to return home as soon as the session is over.
During the first six hours after the treatment, it is recommended to stay calm and refrain from any violent effort. It is also advised to avoid mobilizing your face as much as possible.
For a few dayswe recommend avoiding alcohol, aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, sun exposure and sauna.
Occasionally, there may be some swelling or redness of the skin, the extent and duration of which varies greatly from product to product and from individual to individual. In principle, these symptoms are benign. They will disappear after one to three days.
On the lips, which are more sensitive, the edema, can sometimes last up to one week.
Right after the treatment, there may be some temporary irregularities due to the inhomogeneous distribution of the edema or an aspect of overcorrection which will gradually disappear.
A period of a few days is necessary to assess the final result . This is the time needed for the product to be well integrated, for the edema to disappear and for the tissues to regain all their flexibility.
Thanks to the injections, little defects will disappear. The aged and tired aspect of the face is rectified in a discreet and natural way.
Patient satisfaction with hylauronic acid injections is usually very high.
A follow-up consultation takes place 15 days after the first treatment to evaluate the result and possibly correct any small residual imperfections. This consultation as well as the supplements are an integral part of the treatment and will not entail any additional costs.
Hyaluronic acid is a resorbable product. Depending on the treated areas, the result will last for 8 to 12 months. To maintain the result, maintenance injections are recommended once or twice a year.
This will maximise the benefits and duration of the treatment.
The purpose of these injections is to bring about an improvement and not to achieve perfection. If your expectations remain realistic, the obtained result should give you utmost satisfaction.
