Hyaluronic acid is one of the most used aesthetic-medical substances in recent times by alternative non-surgical treatments to improve certain problems, whether health or aesthetic.
They are normally included in treatments that involve the filling of some ailment caused by the wear and tear of the years, such as skin and joints, for example.
Hyaluronidase in aesthetics
Facial rejuvenation is one of the clearest samples in the health sector for use in treatments and diagnoses in many cases. To these it should be added that various preparations designed for any part of the face (or body) and differ in their density and reticulation.
To understand each other, the preparations have certain characteristics, such as the denser preparations used for deep locations such as cheek augmentation, while the less dense ones would be used to correct superficial wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid problems in the periocular area
Hyaluronic acid is a highly hydrophilic and viscous substance that provides all the components that aesthetic and healthy problems require.
With this statement he means that it has a great capacity to capture water. But not everything is so beneficial, care must be taken with the treatment and the type of acid used, since certain acids in too superficial locations can cause unwanted and very unsightly edema.
The success and guarantee of the results of each treatment depends on the correct selection and application of the product for each area and patient, since it will vary according to the characteristics of each case.
Below we show you an example of the types of treatment that can be found in the hyaluronic acid sector.
The treatment of the periocular area with hyaluronic acid has become popular in recent times, since very good results can be achieved in the treatment of dark circles and incipient bags that are not candidates for surgery.
MAIN DISADVANTAGE: The application of hyaluronic acid in this area is complex and highly dependent on the injection technique. The product must be applied carefully and with deep precision, being the lower part of the orbicularis muscle (and not subcutaneous) as the perfect place to perform said intervention.
However, there is the possibility of complications arising from poorly performed treatments on this area. These cases are usually in which patients show an anomaly in the treated area and edema occurs, or also known as water retention after the application of the product.
It can occur shortly after the injection or months after the injection. The appearance is that of having bags, but on meticulous examination one realizes that it is not the typical fatty bags, but that we are dealing with fluid retention under the skin.
Hyaluronidase, as a solution
Fortunately, there is a solution for these cases: Hyaluronidase. This consists in the degradation of the hyaluronate, also known as the aqueous part (hydrophilic) of the treatment, and that eliminates the liquid retained in the treated area and that its effect is available in 24-48 hours.
Hyaluronidase is the only solution for this type of case, since the hyaluronic acid retained in these areas can have a very long duration and even be complicated and difficult to eliminate if this type of alternative is not applied.
Hyaluronic acid is a safe substance, which can hardly have complications, but which can degrade quickly and easily if unwanted effects appear.
