    Hyaluronic acid in Spain

    Hyaluronic acid in Spain

    Hyaluronic acid in Spain has become one of the most popular anti-aging treatments, like it has in many other countries.

    It is usually combined with other aesthetic medical treatments like botox, for example.

    Hyaluronic acid in Spain, an anti-aging treatment

    Hyaluronic acid is a less allergenic and longer lasting treatment when compared to the majority of other aesthetic medical products.

    It is actually one of the most commonly used dermal fillers to fill in wrinkles.

    About hyaluronic acid

    Hyaluronic acid is an important natural component of the skin, most especially of young skins.

    Hyaluronic acid helps to fill in the existing space between all skin tissues.

    When we age, our skin loses hyaluronic acid so that, at fifty, we only have a 50% of our initial hyaluronic acid stock left. Spaces between skin tissues get less of this perfect filler and wrinkles become increasingly apparent.

    Hyaluronic acid injections in Spain

    The hyaluronic acid used by anti-aging aesthetic specialists is a chemically produced biodegradable product. This gel “attracts” the water contained in the skin tissues and then combines with the hyaluronic acid of the dermal layers to restore its plumpness. Hyaluronic acid injections also help resume the production of natural hyaluronic acid and skin collagen proteins.

    The injections of hyaluronic acid in Spain are usually performed during half an hour sessions. The plastic surgeon injects the hyaluronic acid gel into the skin layers, below the wrinkles using a very fine needle. This dermal filler refills the surface layers and increases skin tone, making it look smoother and wrinkle free.

    Different techniques can be used by the surgeon:

    1. Injection of the product below the wrinkle and further fill in injections following the shape of the line.
    2. Injection of very small amounts of the product lengthwise beneath the wrinkle.

    Hyaluronic acid injections are pain free though sometimes the surgeon may apply an anesthetic cream on the area. Bruises might eventually appear after the injections, though they usually disappear in 48 hours. Exposure to high temperatures, during the next 10 days following the filling injections, is not recommended.

    Common areas treated with hyaluronic acid

    The wrinkles treated with hyaluronic acid in Spain are:

    • Nasolabial folds: between the nose and the corners of the mouth
    • Wrinkles located around the mouth
    • The frown lines and crow’s feet
    • The forehead lines

    Results of hyaluronic acid in Spain

    Effects of hyaluronic acid in Spain are immediate and leave no scars. There are virtually no contraindications to the hyaluronic acid injections as it is one of the safest products used in aesthetic treatments.

    When combined with botox, results are quite significant. The effects last up to nine month (depending on the case). However, the majority of patients renew their treatment every twelve months.

    At Vithas Xanit International Hospital, the Dermoaesthetic Department provides a wide range of facial and full body anti-aging treatments to help patients look and feel younger.
