Naturally more beautiful skin

There are countless types of wrinkles and many different reasons for their appearance. Luckily, there are treatment concepts that make it possible to significantly reduce wrinkles and restore youthfulness – whenever you want it. These modern treatments are tried and tested and thus safe. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring connective tissue component in the body that degrades over the years. Dr Duve uses injections of hyaluronic acid to make your skin radiant again and give it the smoothness, firmness and elasticity it had in your youth.

What is a hyaluronic acid anti-wrinkle injection and how does it work?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced naturally in the body. It is a water-binding molecule and is a decisive factor for the firmness of the skin. It binds many times its weight in moisture and acts as our body’s moisture retention reservoir. Unfortunately, hyaluronic acid levels decrease over the years. As a result, the skin becomes drier and loses elasticity. Not only does that make our skin look older. It also makes it harder for the skin to protect itself against external impact from UV radiation or exhaust fumes – which only accelerates the formation of wrinkles. Crow’s feet and nasolabial folds in particular are often signs of a hyaluronic acid deficiency. Other signs of hyaluronic acid depletion include sagging skin over large areas, such as on the cheeks or neck.

An injection of hyaluronic acid builds volume and gives your skin improved glow.

For whom is the treatment suitable?

If you are not comfortable with your wrinkles, a hyaluronic acid treatment is a good idea. Due to the preparation of the substance, which is also found in the skin, side effects are very unlikely and the risk is low. Hyaluronic acid can be used on adults of any age. In an individual analysis of your skin situation, Dr Duve decides whether hyaluronic acid is the most suitable treatment method for you, or whether Botox®, a treatment with your own fat or a thread lift are better options.

The following types of wrinkles can be easily treated with hyaluronic acid:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Décolleté wrinkles
  • Neck wrinkles

What should be considered before the treatment?

You should not take any blood thinners (such as paracetamol or aspirin) for about two weeks before the treatment. If you need to take medication, for example, due to a chronic illness, please consult your doctor. In many cases, an uncomplicated solution can be found.

How does an anti-wrinkle injection with hyaluronic acid work?

First, Dr Duve offers a detailed consultation in which he informs you about the treatment and possible side effects as well as minor risks. He also gives you a prognosis for the expected result. And you have the opportunity to ask any questions and express any wishes. The procedure itself is then performed on an outpatient basis and usually without anaesthesia – it only takes a few minutes. Immediately afterwards, you can leave the practice and can continue your usual social activities. It may be helpful to cool the treated area a little and to take it easy on the skin. The result lasts up to one year.

What should I consider after the treatment?

Get some rest and enjoy the result. Cool the area and do not expose your skin to direct sunlight. On the first day after the treatment, you should take it easy and try not to exert yourself too much. After a few days, however, you will no longer need to observe any restrictions. There may be further short-term restrictions for some areas, such as the lips.

When will the result be visible?

Generally, the result is already visible a few hours after the treatment, but it only reaches its peak after a few weeks. A great advantage of hyaluronic acid is that it degrades only slowly in the body, which means you can expect a long-lasting result. The results are clearly visible for up to a year. It is possible to refresh the result at any time and as often as you like.

Frequently asked questions about hyaluronic acid treatment

Answers from the expert Dr Duve

How harmful is a hyaluronic acid anti-wrinkle injection?

Hyaluronic acid is used to reduce wrinkles. As it is a natural substance, side effects are rare, and allergic reactions are almost impossible. It is important that only approved and tested products are used. Dr Duve deems this to be particularly important.

How much does a treatment with hyaluronic acid cost?

The treatment depends on your individual situation, as do the prices. They start at EUR 250.

How long does it take for hyaluronic acid to take effect?

The effect begins immediately, reaches its peak after a few weeks and then lasts for about 12 months. However, deviations upwards or downwards are possible, as each patient metabolises the product differently.
