The face, neck and décolleté are important and fragile parts of female beauty. In fact, from the age of thirty one can notice sagging skin, loss of volume or wrinkles which alter the natural elegance.
Dr Christophe Desouches offers you a comprehensive and tailor-made approach to rejuvenating and beautifying the face using aesthetic medicine, in particular with hyaluronic acid injections.
Beauty-creating hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid injections not only restore youth but also improve the beauty criteria of a face.
It is possible to restore proportions and create balance in every face.
This requires a fine knowledge of the rules of harmony and proportions.
Notable results in one session and without surgery
The injections discreetly and naturally improve the tired appearance of the treated areas, face, neck or décolleté. They do not interfere with muscle mobility and therefore there is no effect on facial expressions.
However, while the areas treated with the injections are generally much improved, some deep, old wrinkles cannot be fully corrected.
The duration of action varies according to the products, the areas to be treated, the injection technique, the type of skin and the lifestyle. Usually the correction fades after 6 to 18 months and the treatment must be repeated to maintain the results.
Hyaluronic acid: what is it exactly?
It is found involved in many rejuvenation and beautification procedures on the face, neck, silhouette and intimate areas.
It is a substance naturally present in the skin. It is a polysaccharide whose main function is to hydrate the dermis. The finished product is supplied in pre-filled ampoules. It is presented as a transparent gel that is injected into the skin tissue to smooth fine lines, correct deeper wrinkles or restore facial volumes. This product is completely absorbable. It is not of animal origin but results from a synthesis. It has been used for many years without risk in various therapeutic applications in ophthalmology and rheumatology.
What happens during a session ?
On the days preceding the injection, it is recommended not to take drugs that modify the flow of the blood (aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, etc.) in order to reduce the risk of hematomas.
Anesthesia can be performed before treatment using an anesthetic cream or more rarely injectable xylocaine.
The hyaluronic acid is placed with a fine needle in the dermis, under the wrinkle in order to raise the bottom of it. To restore volume to the face, the injection will be done more deeply and will be of a larger volume.
After injection of hyaluronic acid
During the days following the treatment, exposure to extreme cold or intense heat (sunbathing, spa, etc.) is not recommended. However, no socio-professional eviction is to be anticipated, you can resume your work or your social activities at the end of the session.
There is usually slight edema and redness. The final result is visible after the edema has disappeared.
The duration of the result depends on the type of hyaluronic acid used and the area treated.
A new injection is usually necessary after 6 to 12 months.
