Treatments with Hyaluronic Acid in Alicante

Hyaluronic Acid Facial Treatment

Aesthetic treatments with hyaluronic acid are carried out in the same consultation room without the need for cosmetic surgery, as it is an injectable, simple and quick aesthetic treatment that does not leave any scars.
The treatment is injected as a gel under the skin, in the specific area to be treated, with a very fine syringe, integrating itself naturally into the tissues without altering the characteristics of the skin.
In this way, the gel acts as a filler, leaving the skin looking smoother and more natural.
One of the characteristics of this type of beauty and aesthetic treatment is that its effects are not permanent, so it can be repeated once a year if the patient wishes.
A painless anaesthetic cream is used prior to application. After hyaluronic acid treatment, skin reactions such as swelling and a small bruise may appear in the first few days after application, but these disappear in a very short time.
Another option with similar effects are those achieved with Botox treatments in Alicante to eliminate expression lines and wrinkles in the facial area.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that forms part of our body’s collagen and helps to keep the skin smooth and hydrated. The problem is that it tends to fade with age. It is therefore necessary to add it externally to combat its decline over time.

What is a hyaluronic acid treatment for?

Aesthetic facial treatment with hyaluronic acid fillers is used to restore volume to the face, lips, cheeks, nose and jawline. It also helps to mitigate wrinkles and fine lines, while moisturising and caring for the skin.

What can hyaluronic acid be used for?

Its use is mainly cosmetic:
  • Moisturises the skin.
  • Maintains lip volume and smoothness.
  • Delays the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Prevents the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Stimulates the formation of natural collagen.
However, it also has medical uses:
  • To treat degenerative diseases (osteoarthritis).
  • To heal and reduce pain from joint injuries.
  • To regenerate gums.
  • To treat interstitial cystitis.

Main benefits of hyaluronic acid

This treatment activates skin cell functions with highly visible benefits for the face:
  • Deeply moisturises the face and improves its own moisturising capacity.
  • Moisturises the skin, helping it to retain the water needed by its tissues.
  • Improves firmness, making the face look smoother.
  • It increases its luminosity thanks to the silkiness it achieves, without producing grease and preventing acne.
  • It makes the skin more resistant to environmental factors that deteriorate it.
  • Provides a firmer tone to your skin, creating a younger, fresher appearance.
  • It fights and prevents wrinkles, spots and fine lines.
  • It regenerates skin cells by maintaining the level of collagen and hyaluronic acid it needs.


There are two types of hyaluronic acid:
  • Cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which is more commonly used to give volume to cheekbones, lips, wrinkles, dark circles or furrows, because it is denser.
  • Non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which is lighter and is used to hydrate and nourish the skin.

They are not remarkable. Perhaps swelling or discomfort in the area where the puncture is received. Any discomfort you may feel the day after the operation can be controlled with paracetamol without major problems.

This will largely depend on the area to be treated. When it comes to injecting hyaluronic acid into the lips, for example, we use topical local anaesthesia in the form of a cream or injected anaesthesia, just like dentists do. In any case, a topical local anaesthetic is most commonly used.

Approximately 6 to 18 months.
