Most hyaluronic acid injections are performed using anesthesia, either with cream or through intra-oral anesthesia. Therefore, immediately after the injection, you will have a slight sensation of numbness. If you want this sensation to pass faster, it is recommended to consume products that contain caffeine. If you know that you are prone to herpes, it is advisable to take aciclovir tablets after the injection and to inform the doctor about this predisposition.
Immediately after the injection, the following effects may appear, which will most likely disappear within 7-10 days after the injection:
The major discomfort will appear in 24-48 hours after the injection, when the lips will feel very hard and rigid, and a slight inflammation will appear. You will see the final result of volumization only 7 days after the injection. If you are on your first injection, it is very possible that the hyaluronic acid will be absorbed much faster by the body than in other people. We recommend you return to a new injection, until you get the desired result. In the first year, even 3 volumizations are indicated, later the lips will settle down to the desired volume and extend their durability in years.
Nasogen grooves can show both a person’s age and the degree of fatigue. To give a fresh look to the whole face, the first recommended procedure is filling the nasolabial folds. Depending on the age and skin type, the type of acid is also chosen. But the amount can vary a lot, from person to person. It is indicated to tell the doctor to inject as much as is necessary to fill them completely.

Following the hyaluronic acid injection procedure, the immediate sensation may be of a slight local discomfort, a slight redness may occur, which will disappear in a few hours.
AFTER INJECTION MAY OCCUR:
DO NOT WORRY! A more prolonged edema or the formation of granulomas is a particular reaction of the patient. If after 14 days, they do not disappear, it is necessary to see a doctor for control and correction.
WE RECOMMEND YOU
The results are visible immediately after the procedure, but due to a small edema in the treated area, the final form will be seen after a few days, depending on the amount injected: cases that require more volume will have a slightly longer recovery period than those where only a small correction is required. However, you can resume your daily activities, being able to mask the slight marks from punctures or bruises with make-up.
In the case of nasolabial folds , depending on their depth, it is possible that the doctor will recommend a new filling session to obtain an optimal result. Hyaluronic acid stays in the nasolabial folds for 6-8 months, depending on how the patient’s body metabolizes the acid. IF YOU ARE ON THE FIRST INJECTION, IT WILL BE ABSORBED FASTER TO HYDRATE THE TISSUES UNTIL AN ACID BASE IS CREATED.
In Rhinoplasty with Hyaluronic Acid and Mandibular Recontouring , the stay is 8-12 months, being a less dynamic area. Avoid massaging the area where the acid was distributed to prevent it from migrating, and wear sunglasses for a week.
If you have noticed asymmetries or irregularities, you can do a free touch-up only 14 days after the injection.
Marionette wrinkles give an unpleasant appearance to the skin around the mouth and are an indicator of a person’s age. To give a fresh appearance to the physiognomy, the first procedure that is recommended is filling marionette type wrinkles with hyaluronic acid. Depending on the age and skin type, the type of acid is also chosen. But the amount can vary a lot, from person to person. It is indicated to tell the doctor to inject as much as is necessary to fill them completely.

However, you can resume your daily activities, being able to mask the slight marks from punctures or bruises with make-up.
Although the cannula is used to minimize discomfort and bruising, and the needle only for small corrections, we recommend that you keep ice packs for the first 24 hours after the procedure to reduce edema (inflammation) and stop bruising.
Avoid sauna, solarium and intense physical exertion for 14 days.
For 3-4 days it is recommended to sleep with your face up in order not to migrate the acid or create small asymmetries.
Arnica administered orally, before and after treatment or applied locally as a gel, accelerates healing (it will be applied in a thin layer and with very gentle movements to avoid pressing the area).
Depending on how your body metabolizes hyaluronic acid, results can last from 9 to 12 months. Compared to the area of the lips and wrinkles, the area of the cheekbones is less dynamic, which is why the stay is longer. To maintain the result, you can return in 6 months to re-inject a smaller amount of acid than the initial one.
It is very important to drink water, minimum 2 l of water per day, to maintain the results.
If you have noticed asymmetries or irregularities, only 14 days after the injection we can do a free touch-up. This also applies to situations where you want a larger volume of the cheekbones initially obtained by injecting hyaluronic acid.

In the case of using the atraumatic cannula, the risk of bruising is minimal, feeling only a small sensation of discomfort during and after the injection. You can keep an ice pack in the access point area to reduce any inflammation (if you have more sensitive skin). You can also apply an arnica cream 2 times a day for 3 days (by gentle movements, without massaging the area).
The patient must avoid makeup on the treated area for 12 hours.
Do not deliberately expose yourself to heat (sauna, solarium, hot showers) for a week.
Avoid laser or cosmetic treatments for the first 7 days after the injection, massage or trauma to the eye area, as well as intense physical exertion.
Being a less dynamic area than botulinum toxin lip volumization or wrinkle fading, the acid will last 9-12 months, depending on your lifestyle. It is very important to drink at least 2 liters of water per day or, depending on what your doctor recommends after the consultation and during the procedure.
If you notice that the size of dark circles is affected by water consumption, there is a possibility that you are retaining water in your body, and we suggest that you decrease the amount of water you drink and make an appointment for a consultation.
Also, in the case of asymmetries in the area of the dark circles, it is advisable to schedule a consultation, the filling being free.
In some cases, your doctor will recommend injecting your dark circles in two separate sessions to get the best result, as the amount of acid used differs from person to person.
If you want to remove the hyaluronic acid, there is the possibility of melting it with a substance called hyaluronidase, which within 2 days will completely remove the injected hyaluronic acid, returning the treated area to its original shape, without affecting the texture or tissues of the skin.

The post-procedure reactions are minor, being possible the appearance of a slight edema (inflammation), erythema (redness), ecchymoses (bruises), a feeling of pressure in the treated area and a slight post-procedure asymmetry, due to the traction and anchoring of the threads in the tissue.
During the first two weeks there may be bumps on the skin, which will fade on their own during this period.
After the treatment, the area where the intervention took place will give the impression of stiffness (tightening), but after 7 days this sensation will disappear, because the threads have a short time to degrade, losing 50% of their mechanical strength. The maximum result appears 3 months after the procedure, as the maximum amount of collagen is secreted. The threads are resorbed in a maximum of 8 months, so the skin will shape harmoniously thanks to the regained elasticity, the result being maintained for up to 18 months.
After the hyaluronidase injection, it is normal to:
DON’T WORRY IF THE LIPS ARE MORE Swollen THAN IN THE CASE OF A VOLUMIZATION WITH HYALURONIC ACID: the edema (maximum inflammation) will persist for 3 hours, after which it subsides, typical of stings.
If after 24 hours after the procedure you notice that you are inflamed, we recommend taking antiallergic drugs orally.
It is recommended to apply ice locally during the first 3 hours after the treatment, 15 minutes with a 15-minute break (so as not to cause frostbite).
The properties of this substance contribute to the natural elimination of hyaluronic acid by the endocrine glands in the shortest possible time. With the correct choice of dose and determination of the injection site, the affected area returns to its original shape.
It is recommended that you wait a week before any procedure on that area. In some situations, additional hyaluronidase melting sessions may be necessary.
IN SOME CASES, YOUR DOCTOR MAY SCHEDULE YOU FOR A NEW INJECTION THE NEXT DAY!
The injection of a cocktail of substances whose role is to melt fat cells can also come with temporary effects that can disturb the patient’s comfort. Whether the injected area turns red for a few hours, or whether it becomes stronger for a period of even a few weeks, lipolysis has the desired effect only if the injected substance is dosed appropriately and repeatedly.

The next session is recommended 2-5 weeks after the previous treatment, for optimal results, 4-6 sessions are required.
Peeling is recommended for patients who understand very well what awaits them and who wish to perform this procedure, even if it may involve temporary isolation. Especially if the peeling is performed with an instrument called a dermapen, the redness that may appear immediately after the procedure will be accentuated and may last for several days. The skin will get fatter in the first days than usual, and in a few days after the procedure it will take on a very bright and pleasant appearance. It is possible that some people also present small peeling of the skin, all depending on the intensity and depth of the treatment. This is decided with the doctor in the office.

It is possible that the areas where the injections were made will be a little red and inflamed, effects that will disappear within a maximum of 1-2 hours after the treatment. If a blood vessel has been touched by the needle, a small bruise may appear, which will fade within a week at most.
Immediately after the procedure, it is recommended to do mimicry exercises of the treated facial muscles, to facilitate the fixation of the botulinum toxin on the neuromotor plate. DO NOT WORRY! Even if you don’t make these moves, the substance will settle because its deposit has been spread over a large area. It is recommended that you avoid voluntary muscle contraction in the following days.
DON’T WORRY IF YOU HAVE A MIGRAINE AFTER THE TREATMENT, it’s normal, and you can take an anti-inflammatory on your doctor’s recommendation.
Effects begin to appear after 4-7 days of treatment, and the final result will be seen after 14 days.
The treatment lasts 4-6 months. It differs from person to person, depending on muscle activity, depending on daily activities. Deliberate exposure to the sun, tanning, lack of hydration will diminish the staying power.
If you do not want the effect to disappear completely until a new injection, you can use the baby botox procedure to maintain the results.
After a few treatments, the effect of botulinum toxin can start to last longer, 6-8 months.
If you notice that the Botox has not fully worked, after 14 days of the treatment, come back for a free refill of the appropriate amount for your muscles.
BOTOX IN THE MASSETER: being a stronger muscle, the substance will need a longer installation period, starting to settle after 3-4 weeks of treatment, and the final effect will be seen after 2-3 months (botox inhibits hyperactivity the muscle, it atrophies and it becomes thinner – slimming effect).
GUMMY SMILE AND SMOKER LINES: Following the installation of botulinum toxin, you may feel numbness in the treated area. DO NOT WORRY! This sensation will pass in 2 weeks. In some cases, the doctor recommends that you perform the treatment in two separate sessions, in order to reach the optimal result, because the amount of botox used differs from one person to another.
IMMEDIATELY AFTER TREATMENT:
Over the next few days, several small, brown scabs will appear, which will fall off on their own in approximately 10 days, revealing new, pink skin.
VERY IMPORTANT : these crusts are allowed to fall off on their own, and then a cream with a protective factor will be applied.
Plasma microparticles act only at the level of the epidermal layer, without damaging the skin. Positive effects will be highlighted. In a few days after the treatment, you will have the feeling that the skin “tightens”, the remodeling process of the collagen fibers continuing during the following weeks.
