Hyaluronic acid is one of the most common treatments used to fill up facial wrinkles. It occurs naturally in the body, so it is a very popular choice for anti-aging treatments due to its compatibility with the human body.
Naturally, this substance is a protein that acts to transfer essential nutrients from the bloodstream to the skin cells. When injected, it acts as a cushion that supports tissue that has loosened or lost volume due to aging. It also brings fluid to the skin to ensure to keep it looking fresh.
Dr. Georgopoulos and the staff at the Geoplasty Center are experts in hyaluronic acid treatments, and they will advise you during consultation on how this treatment can meet your expectations and improve your appearance.
The hyaluronic acid procedure involves injecting the fluid into specific areas of the face using very small needles. Prior to this, the treatment areas are thoroughly cleansed using an antibacterial agent.
The procedure can take as little as 30 minutes to complete, depending on how many lines have to be treated. You may be given an ice pack to ensure swelling kept to a minimum.
After the Procedure
In most cases, you will be able to carry on as normal. Dr. Georgopoulos will advise you not to touch the treated area to ensure the fluid remains in place.
The treatment lasts for up to six months. Staff at the Geoplasty Center will arrange further treatments in future if this is something you would like.
Because it is a naturally occurring substance, hyaluronic acid treatments very rarely result in side effects. There may be some swelling and redness immediately after the treatments, although this will dissipate quickly. There is always a slight risk of infection.
Dr. Georgopoulos will advise you on all aspects of after-treatment care.
