What Role Does Hyaluronic Acid Play in Our Body?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our body. The areas with the highest concentration include the epidermis, connective tissue, cartilage, synovial fluid, eyes, etc. Its main quality is the ability to attract and retain water in a specific area, keeping our tissues hydrated.
Over time, our bodies break down more hyaluronic acid than they produce, leading to a loss of hydration and the appearance of the first signs of aging, such as reduced elasticity and firmness.
At Dental Asensio, a leading dental clinic in Valencia, we emphasize to our patients the importance of caring for every detail in pursuit of your best smile. The lips frame our smile; thus, they should be considered when addressing any dental treatment in advanced ages.
Types of Hyaluronic Acid
Many cosmetic products contain high concentrations of hyaluronic acid. However, to effectively address the perioral area, we need to inject this substance to position the product correctly. There are two types of hyaluronic acid:
The gel is much denser, allowing the product to remain stable for a longer time.
This composition is more liquid and does not stay as long in the body. It’s usually used to hydrate the more superficial skin areas.
Hyaluronic Acid at Dental Asensio
For hyaluronic acid injections in Valencia, we typically use cross-linked hyaluronic acid. The treatment is not overly painful, as we apply a numbing cream beforehand to minimize any discomfort.
The procedure only takes about 15-20 minutes and yields immediate visible results. Post-injection, some swelling is expected for the next 24-48 hours.
