Hyaluronic acid


Undoubtedly, hyaluronic acid is one of the substances most widely used today to solve certain aesthetic dermatological problems. As the years go by, the skin begins to lose that much sought-after appearance and firmness, and in our attempt to maintain it, we use creams and an infinite number of products with the same aim: to ensure that the years go by without having an impact on our face.

Wrinkles, expression lines, crow's feet... there is always some kind of mark that shows that time is passing. In many cases, people want to change their appearance, but the simple fact of hearing about surgery makes people fear, and they continue to look like this instead of changing towards their desired appearance. If a little while ago we talked about collagen, today we are going to talk about another current and very widespread topic: hyaluronic acid fillers.

Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide of the glycosaminoglycan group, i.e. it is a sugar molecule that can be found naturally in our body. It is usually concentrated in the joints, cartilage and skin, and as time goes by, our body uses up its reserves and little by little, the concentration of hyaluronic acid decreases. It is widely used in medicine, for example in traumatology, ophthalmology and also for aesthetic treatments.

Its main qualities are hydration, as hyaluronic acid has the capacity to retain large amounts of water around it, and its ability to fill in tissues such as wrinkles and expression lines.

As we age, the hyaluronic acid decreases in concentration, causing the skin to look more dehydrated, and as a direct consequence, the formation of wrinkles and furrows is favoured. This is where medicine comes into play, and medical advances have shown that injecting hyaluronic acid into areas such as wrinkles or crow's feet helps to restore a more youthful appearance.

It can be of animal or biological origin, depending on the manufacturer and supplier of each clinic, as well as the purpose for which it is to be used.


Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our body, which makes it a 100% biocompatible treatment.

The treatment usually lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the areas to be treated and the amount of product to be injected. Sometimes local anaesthesia is used to make the treatment as painless as possible for the patient.
The method of application is the same as that used with collagen injections, infiltration is carried out using a very fine syringe, adapted for each type of treatment, and the wrinkle or the area to be treated is filled, in order to recover the tone and the smooth and taut appearance of the area.

After the application, the skin will look swollen according to the treatment performed, it will gradually disappear and we will be able to observe the real results of the treatment afterwards. Ice is usually applied to reduce the swelling, and after a few days the treated area will look great and you will be able to see the excellent results.

Advantages of hyaluronic acid

One of the main advantages of hyaluronic acid is its ease of application, as with a 30-minute session, we can overcome the signs of ageing and obtain magnificent results.
Its price. Undoubtedly, when patients who are looking for a few small touch-ups hear the figures for the plastic surgery they would have to undergo to achieve the results they are looking for, they are often disappointed. Hyaluronic acid allows a full-fledged aesthetic treatment with great results for a price of around €300, which includes a personalised study, evaluation and follow-up after the injection, and the application of the anti-wrinkle filler itself.
One of the advantages over collagen is its duration, which in some cases and depending on the area, the results obtained after application can last up to a year or even longer.
There is no need for allergy testing as there is minimal rejection or allergy, and it is an insignificant percentage compared to the benefits and results obtained with this treatment.

Disadvantages of hyaluronic acid

Its main disadvantage is that it's not a permanent treatment, it's usually divided into sessions and the duration of its results varies between 6 months and 1 year. Therefore, it is normal to schedule a follow-up with the professional who will carry out the treatment and dates on which to continue with the applications if you wish to prolong its effect.
There are some side effects, but they are usually mild, such as irritation, redness, swelling or hypersensitivity of the treated area. They usually disappear gradually after the injection.
Its use is not recommended for pregnant women, minors, or if the patient is to undergo radiofrequency treatment.
Finally, hyaluronic acid has been gaining market share over collagen and is a great alternative for people who wish to regain firm facial skin without having to undergo plastic surgery with the risks involved in going through an operation.
