In the early days, only one product was available, whose results stability was of three months or so. Nowadays, there is a variety of products that proves to be stable for 12 to18 months. The hyaluronic acid is now cautiously used to in order to optimise its action for moisturising the skin using mesotherapy techniques, or correcting fine line and superficial wrinkles as well as deep folds.
Any area on the face can be treated. Fine lines or deep folds; hollow-looking upper eyelids, cheekbones volume; oval of the chin; lips -which volume can be modified or the shape enhanced-; dark circles around the eyes as well as nasolabial folds or smile-lines; vermillion border and perorial lines. The post-procedure effects are usually not painful even though small bruises can be persistent for a few days.
