Hyaluronic Acid Injection

Hyaluronic acid is a natural part of the body. It binds water and gives skin volume, lubricates joints and shapes the eyes. With increasing age, the natural hyaluronic acid content of skin loses the capacity to store water. The skin loses moisture and volume, it becomes drier and thinner, and regenerates less efficiently. The loss of volume results in sagging skin. Hyaluronic acid is a form of crystal-clear gel, which is injected to restore lost volume back to your face, smoothing lines and wrinkles, modelling your profile or give your lips a fuller form. No risk of transmission of diseases or allergic reactions even if you have allergies to certain food such as beef, poultry or eggs.

The hyaluronic acid gel comes in different viscosity and particle size, so that with the most appropriate treatment for specific wrinkles can be utilised. Hyaluronic acid gives volume to your skin, your facial expression without altering your natural appearance.

Hyaluronic acid is injected in very small volumes with a very fine needle under the skin. The gel adds volume into the skin below wrinkles, plumping and smoothing. Depending on your sensitivity to pain and the planned site of injection, your doctor may provide you pain ointment or local anaesthetic in the form of a small syringe, similar to one the dentist would administer, allowing you to be as comfortable as possible for the treatment. The treatment in plastic surgery by Dr. Dirk Kremer usually takes 30 minutes, possibly a little longer, depending on the degree of correction you want. When receiving a pain-relieving ointment expect to add about 20-30 minutes for the full effect of the ointment to wear off.
