Hyaluronic Acid and its uses in aesthetic medicine

Between the products we have Today, to fill wrinkles or restore lost volumes (on the face or body), hyaluronic acid is the most important, most used and most versatile.

It is the most natural that we have because it is also an element of our body at the level of the skin and joints. It is also used in cataract surgery since when the lens is removed, that space is replaced by a hyaluronic acid gel before inserting the contact lens. Therefore, it is very safe and is used in numerous medical specialties.

In addition, we have a wide variety of densities and this allows us to hydrate the skin to fill cavities in the body. Therefore, it allows us, at the face level, to use a product of different density depending on whether we are going to project a lip, define a lip or give volume to that lip; and if we intend to highlight cheekbones or chin we will use one of even greater density.

A special case is treating dark circles since it must be a hyaluronic acid that does not capture water since it could produce edema of the lower eyelid; This area is complicated because even using specific hyaluronic acid, it sometimes becomes inflamed.

In addition to its versatility, it has the advantage that we have an “antidote” in case we don't like the result or if we want to make it disappear prematurely. The antidote is called hyaluronidase and if it is injected into areas where there is hyaluronic acid, it destroys it immediately.

However, despite its benefits, we must be clear that it also has side effects and that is why an expert doctor must apply it because he has been trained to identify and manage these adverse effects.
