Specific hyaluronic acid treatments for each area of the face
Together with the nose, it is one of the most prominent points of the face and gives it character and determination: an underdeveloped chin loses the proportions of the face. In this area a denser type of hyaluronic acid is used to tighten the tissues and reinforce the angle of the jaw, drawing its contour more clearly, since one of the most obvious signs of the passage of time is the lack of definition of the chin and facial features.
In men, the definition of the chin produces a more marked and masculine face and in women it elevates the skin and refines the contours. In mature people, the lost volume is recovered whose decrease can darken the face and cause the appearance of wrinkles in the corner of the mouth.
The area that shows the passing of time the most. The skin and fat of the cheek droop, giving this area a flaccid and aged appearance. We treat the face with hyaluronic acid at specific points so that it begins to rise.
Treating the cheekbones is the first step to correct a droopy face. Hyaluronic acid is used to elevate and give definition to the cheekbones and makes the face look longer and more feminine in women, eliminating sagging and filling out the contours. It also works on young people who don’t have naturally defined cheekbones.
When the temples sink over time, they give off a sad and sickly appearance. Hyaluronic acid fills them, achieving a healthier, well-rested and fresh appearance, tightening the face and preventing sagging.
