Hyaluronic acid injections moreover allow a very natural Non-Surgical Facelift, Brow Lift, Oval Lift as well as Lip Lift, Dr Kacem, explains.
Dermal Fillers London and Facial Fillers are made of a sugar that naturally occurs in our dermis where its main role is retaining water and hydrate skin from within.
This sugar is called Hyaluronic Acid and is more known as Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal, Belotero and many other brands.
We utilize it to fill and lift.
Indeed, we can fill restoring and replacing lost volume in many areas of the face such as cheeks, cheekbones, and lips.
By replacing lost volume in key areas and with the proper technique we also achieve lift mainly a whole facelift or a brow lift, mouth corners lift and jaw lift.

What is Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the dermis, it is thinner with age.
Hyaluronic acid is very hygroscopic, ie, it is capable of absorbing and retaining a huge amount of water.
This hygroscopic power gives the skin a better hydration, thus better tone, and radiance.
synthetic Hyaluronic acid is a pure and sterile viscoelastic gel, bio-compatible and bio-degradable.
With all these properties, such as Visco-elasticity, it is the material of choice for anti-wrinkle treatment, facial volume restoration, and skin hydration.
Voluma, Volbella, Volift, Juvederm Ultra (Juvederm Vy Cross; Allergan), Teosyal (Teoxane), Restylane (Galderma), Belotero (Merz) … all Designate a single molecule: Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic acid degrades over time depending on its degree of polymerization.
1. Skin hydration
Glycosaminoglycans are an essential component of our dermis, along aside with Elastin and Collagen fibres.
They are mainly composed of hyaluronic acid.
These glycosaminoglycans are responsible for retaining water within the dermis, thus ensuring dermis hydration.
Unfortunately, their concentration decreases with age, therefore by injecting hyaluronic acid into dermis we augment glycosaminoglycan concentration while restoring natural dermis hydration from within without resort to any cosmetic moisturiser cream!
2. Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
Hyaluronic acid injection is the anti-wrinkle treatment of choice.
We opt for a light cross-linked hyaluronic acid in this indication.
Its life is on average six months.
Here, hyaluronic acid injection is made into the dermis, without fearing the “Tyndall effect”, a bluish discolouration of skin where hyaluronic acid is injected.
Hyaluronic acid injections will glaze the entire area.
It is now more possible than ever thanks to new generations of Hyaluronic Acids such as Juvederm Volbella which have revolutionised the treatment of incipient wrinkles and very superficial wrinkles.
3. Volumes Restoration
We understood just a few years ago that indeed cheekbones are the pillars of the face, this has totally revolutionised plastic surgery, surgical facelift as well as a non-surgical facelift.
We opt for a highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid with volumizing power in this indication.
Its life is on average 18 months.
In this case, Hyaluronic Acid is placed deep in contact with periosteum (the bone), with the aim to restore facial volumes and not to increase them.
Hyaluronic acid is injected preferably using a fine cannula not exceeding 1 mm in diameter to minimise bruises and swelling.
We always choose the density of hyaluronic acid depending on the area to be injected.
the volumizing Hyaluronic acid of high density will be reserved for the upper face and volume restoration.
In the lower face, we will opt for hyaluronic acid of low density so as not to burden the face.
Density is the key in the refraction of light and thus obtaining a satisfactory aesthetic result.
4. Facelift, Brow Lift, Lip Lift
Hyaluronic acid injection allows a very natural non-surgical facelift, Lip Lift and Browlift.
5. Hyaluronic Acid Latest Generation
Furthermore the viscosity, elasticity and cohesiveness of the latest generation of Hyaluronic acids, such as Juvederm Voluma and Teosyal RH1 allow on one hand a very superficial Anti-Wrinkle Injections correcting incipient wrinkles as well as filling areas where the skin is extremely thin such as the valley of tears without fear of Tendhal effect or formation of nodules.
On the other hand they allow a delicate restoration of volumes lost especially in the malar region, a Non-Surgical Facelift is thereby achieved by simple restoration and replacement of facial lost or displaced volumes, it is evident that Hyaluronic Acid Injections technique using bolus injections with a needle or fanning with blunt cannula should be well controlled by a very experienced Cosmetic Doctor.
The evolution of Aesthetic Medicine techniques has also made possible the treatment of Consequences of Acne, Acne Scars and dilated pores which can also be due to actinic ageing in many subjects to oily skin.
