What is the ideal age for hyaluronic acid injections?

Today, hyaluronic acid is one of the most popular options in aesthetic medicine for restoring youthful skin and correcting various skin imperfections. However, there are common questions about the appropriate age to consider hyaluronic acid injections. This article provides detailed answers.

What is hyaluronic acid in aesthetic medicine?

L’acid hyaluronic acid is originally a molecule naturally present in the body, notably in skin tissue. It leaves skin naturally moisturized, supple, firm and elastic. However, as the skin ages, hyaluronic acid levels decrease over time. Skin becomes thinner, drier, looser…

In aesthetic medicine, hyaluronic acid is used for its moisturizing and volumizing properties to counter the ravages of time. Often used in the form of injections, it is primarily appreciated for its ability to hydrate the skin, smooth wrinkles, restore volume to hollow areas and sculpt facial shapes.

Hyaluronic acid is a biodegradable product that requires no incisions or anesthesia. Its effect is therefore particularly natural.

What are the reasons for hyaluronic acid injections?

Since hyaluronic acid injections are used in aesthetic medicine to treat a variety of problems, they are sought after for a number of reasons. Here are their main indications:

Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines

Hyaluronic acid can be injected to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Injected into the thickness of the skin using a very fine cannula, hyaluronic acid restores tension to the skin in the targeted area. The main areas concerned are the nasolabial folds, the edges of the lips, the eye contour and the bitterness folds.

Lip augmentation

Hyaluronic acid is commonly used to increase lip volume and redefine lip contours. Hyaluronic acid, injected in very small doses, redefines and contours the mouth without transforming it. It also rehydrates lips and fills in fine lines around the mouth.

Volume restoration

Hyaluronic acid can be used to restore lost volume in areas such as the cheekbones, temples and cheeks. As we age, facial fat melts away. The face loses relief, the tissues slacken. Hyaluronic acid helps restore these volumes while naturally lifting the face.

Skin hydration

Hyaluronic acid injections can improve skin hydration, leaving it smoother and more radiant. With Skinbooster, hyaluronic acid injections replenish and strengthen the skin. In mesotherapy, hyaluronic acid plumps skin deep down.

Correction of a facial asymmetry or defect

Hyaluronic acid can also be used to correct defects of the nose (medical rhinoplasty), to shape the oval of the face, or to correct a receding or protruding chin.

What is the ideal age for hyaluronic acid injections?

The ideal age for hyaluronic acid injections varies from person to person, depending on their needs, the area to be treated and their state of skin health. Generally speaking, there is no strict age limit for these procedures. Some people use it for early prevention, which can be an effective approach to maintaining young, healthy skin before the stigma of time sets in. Others opt for hyaluronic acid when the signs of aging become more visible.

A consultation with a qualified aesthetic medicine professional will obviously help you determine the best time for injections. This meeting is essential to determine the best strategy and guarantee natural, harmonious results.
