What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in skin tissue. it participates in deep hydration by maintaining the water present in the skin.

Hyaluronic acid is also a molecule widely used in care creams for its hydrating and smoothing effects. However, hyaluronic acid does not then penetrate deeply and its action then remains very limited.

Hyaluronic acid is also a synthetic product, manufactured by biotechnology processes. It allows:

  • Fill in wrinkles
  • Restore volume
  • To deeply moisturize the skin.

Hyaluronic acid is the most widely used dermal filler in the world, is biodegradable, non-allergenic, and does not require allergy testing before injection.

Who is the hyaluronic acid injection for?

The hyaluronic acid is for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of the skin, treat a wrinkle or furrow, or restore facial harmony by playing with the volumes of the various anatomical areas of the face.

The hyaluronic acid-based gels are more or less reticulated (dense).

The choice of the hyaluronic acid gel injected is made according to the area to be treated, the anatomical characteristics of each patient and the expected results.

Depending on the viscosity of the gel and its cross-linking process as well as the size of the hyaluronic acid particles, it is possible to :

– Nasolabial fold: wrinkle starting from the wing of the nose and going down to the corner of the mouth. There is a staging that guides us to propose a suitable treatment.
– The bitterness fold: from the corner of the lip and down to the jaw;
– The lion’s wrinkle (between the eyebrows): when the lion’s wrinkle is very deep, we first inject botulinum toxin which decreases muscle contraction. Fifteen days later, it is possible to complete the result with a filling with hyaluronic acid.

Patient review

Hanna Bensemhoun

Operated by Dr. Gianfermi, I am infinitely grateful for the exceptional work he did on me. He knew how to listen to me and to identify my needs with precision. The result is natural and far exceeds my expectations. Thanks also to Betty, his great assistant, for her reassuring presence after the operation and her professionalism. They are both wonderful people. I don't have the words to express my gratitude to them... Thank you for everything.

Procedure for an injection of Hyaluronic acid

Details of the injection

Before the injection

Hyaluronic acid naturally contains a local anesthetic, so there is no need to apply an anesthetic cream before the injection except for the lips.

In addition, the use of very fine needles or micro-cannulas (long, thin, round-tipped device), is not very traumatic and therefore not very painful
