And is it really healthier for the body than the beauty classic Botox? Specialist Lisa Schultes from HNOmedic has five surprising facts ready in an interview with the news agency spot on news.
Not as harmless as it sounds
“Most patients think that an injection with hyaluronic acid has no risks. However, this is wrong. Serious complications can occur during the injection. If it is injected incorrectly, for example into a vessel, this vessel can become blocked and This can lead to reduced blood flow or death of the affected area.”
“Even if the injected hyaluronic acid is degraded over time by the body’s own enzymes, there are always small residues, especially after repeated treatment due to scarring. For example, in the context of nose operations, you can still find residues of the material even years later, if a nose correction has been done beforehand hyaluronic acid filler was performed.”
Hyaluron binds water!
“You can take advantage of this property. After a treatment with hyaluronic acid, you should always make sure you drink enough liquid, as this can increase the severity and duration of the effect.”
Not just something for the face
“The best known is probably the use of hyaluronic acid fillers to increase the volume of the lips and cheeks. However, these fillers can do much more. Uncrosslinked or slightly crosslinked hyaluronic acid can also be used on other parts of the body, such as the backs of the hands or on the neck, in order to cover large areas here to smooth superficial wrinkles.”
Not suitable for everyone
“Not everyone is suitable for a treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers. The injection leads to an increase in volume, but if the skin above it is already too slack, it is possible that the filler does not stay in place and a cosmetically unattractive result due to sagging The result is created. We therefore recommend that you seek detailed advice before the treatment.”
