Areas to be treated and types of treatment
As it is a biosynthetic product, hyaluronic acid generally does not cause allergic reactions. In the immediate injection area, patients may experience mild redness, swelling or minor bruising. Other potential side effects will be explained by the physician according to the type of procedure.

Once the treatment has been administered, it is recommended to avoid exposure to the sun, intense physical training and extreme cold. Depending on the product and the individual’s reaction, the best results can last for a period of six to twelve months.
