Hyaluronic acid, the name is difficult to pronounce or to remember. Yet, all those (and even those) who are interested in aesthetic medicine know that this substance is used to fill in certain facial wrinkles.
The other product also used for the same purpose is botulinum acid (or Botox®). But beware, these two star products of aesthetic anti-wrinkle medicine do not act at all the same way, and do not have the same indications.
In this file, we go through the questions you can ask yourself about this treatment: its mode of action, the price. This is important because hyaluronic acid injections are not reimbursed by Health Insurance.
As is often the case in cosmetic medicine, the effect of these treatments fades over time. After a few months, it will usually start again. Be careful, you have to deal with a good practitioner who has good experience, to have harmonious effects (without being too pronounced, not enough ...) of these injections.
First, find out what these anti-wrinkle hyaluronic acid injections are. Know in what cases they are indicated, the risks, and the tariffs. Finally, discover the testimony of a woman with whom it worked!
