Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid injections have become extremely popular in aesthetic medicine in a few years. They have replaced all the non-absorbable products (silicone) of the time. The fact that the product is resorbable and lasts for 1 year makes it possible to adjust the injections according to the aging process.

Surgical indications

Hyaluronic acid can be treated without surgery:

  • Forehead (wrinkle)
  • Dark circles (pocket, valley of tears, hollow of the circles)
  • Nose (medical rhinoplasty)
  • The lips (Russian lips)
  • The nasolabial folds
  • The furrows of bitterness
  • The chin (retrognatism)
  • The oval of the face (jawline contouring) ;
  • Cheekbones (restore volume)


Hyaluronic acid is a resorbable filler. It is used to treat the loss of fatty volume of the face induced by aging.
