Miracle drug hyaluronic acid – the unvarnished truth
Hyaluronic acid has experienced a real boom in recent years and seems more popular than ever these days. However, the increasing popularity of hyaluronic acid treatments also has its downsides.
After all, hardly any other substance is accompanied by such a multitude of myths as the miracle drug of aesthetic medicine. But what is really behind the filler? We clarify and reveal which tall tales you can safely say goodbye to.
Myth #1: Hyaluronic acid stays forever
Once hyaluronic acid in the body, always hyaluronic acid in the body?! Many people shy away from hyaluronic injections because they fear they will produce permanent results. In truth, the effectiveness of hyaluronic acid in our skin is limited. Usually, the plumping effect lasts around three to six months, as it is continuously broken down again by our body. However, building up the hyaluronic acid over several sessions can prolong its effectiveness and thus lead to longer-lasting, though not permanent, results.
Myth #2: Hyaluronic acid only works when it comes out of a syringe
Many people already have hyaluronic acid injected regularly and enjoy its plumping effect. What is often disregarded here is that creams containing hyaluronic acid also lead to positive results on the skin. The short-chain hyaluronic acid molecules in lotions contribute to the formation of moisture deposits in the skin, which makes the skin look plumper and more even.
Myth #3: Hyaluronic acid can only be used to smooth wrinkles
Wrinkle smoothing is often the first thing that comes to mind when the keyword hyaluron is mentioned. This wrinkle-smoothing effect of the filler has already been proven, which is why it is regularly used to plump up unwanted lines on the face. The strong lifting capacity of hyaluronic acid is often forgotten. This makes it possible not only to give the face more striking contours, but also to achieve an increase in volume in the lips, for example.
