Hyaluronic acid is an effective solution for erasing and concealing wrinkles and fine lines on the face, restoring volume to the cheekbones and cheeks, but also to the temples and hands, and for re-plumping the lips and re-shaping their contours.
After the age of 40, many women, and more and more men, want to rejuvenate their facial expression and restore firmness and tone to their skin. Aesthetic treatments using hyaluronic acid are injected to erase and conceal wrinkles and fine lines, as well as lines and shadows under the eyes, but also to redefine the shape of the face, and to rejuvenate the facial expression by giving it back its firmess.
How to make wrinkles and fine lines disappear, and restructure the shape of your face?
Fine lines on the face and particularly around the eyes appear over the years. Some lines or wrinkles are only superficial, but in some cases wrinkles can be deeper, notably on the cheekbones and on both sides of the mouth, creating the effect of “sunken cheeks” and giving you a tired appearance.
Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible, hydrating and completely absorbable gel, which is used as an aesthetic treatment to fill deep and surface wrinkles, but also to give structure, lift or volume to the cheekbones, chin, temples, lips, hands, as well as to define the bridge of the nose.
