Hyaluronic acid injections
Over the past 10 years, hyaluronic acid injections have become the gold standard in the treatment of facial wrinkles. There are several reasons why hyaluronic acid fillers are so favourable and popular – it is a non-surgical treatment with less risk of side effects. Hyaluronic acid is characterized as highly compatible with the skin and its biodegradation, and the procedure is practically painless and easy to perform. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that once directed between collagen fibres, it maintains the water balance in the skin and maximally hydrates it.
About the procedure
Hyaluronic acid is a particularly important part of the skin’s connective tissue that retains skin moisture, distinguishes oneself with a special ability to bind water molecules. With age, wrinkles and hyaluronic acid are lost, therefore additional skin regeneration with hyaluronic acid is a straightforward and acceptable way for the skin to recover what it begins to lose.
Particularly concentrated and special thick hyaluronic acid injections are especially suitable for the treatment of medium and deep wrinkles – after injecting the product into deep wrinkles (nasolabial lines – wrinkles from the corner of the nose to the corner of the lips), hyaluronic acid fills them internally and wrinkles noticeably. Hyaluronic injections help to evenly fill the gaps between the collagen fibres in the intercellular medium, intensively moisturize the skin, stimulate the synthesis of collagen (one of the most important skin proteins that determine elasticity), slow down its breakdown, the skin begins to actively produce its own hyaluronic acid – thus forming new skin fibres.
It is important to emphasize that hyaluronic injections give a natural-looking result –the injection reduces and smoothes mimic/facial wrinkles, deep wrinkles and puckers, making the face look younger and brighter.

During the procedure
After the procedure
Upon arrival at the procedure, your doctor will always consult you, examine and assess the condition of your skin and advise you on which preparation is best for you. This procedure requires highly professional knowledge and experience, as a completely different outcome can be attained if the injection is not carried out with sufficient precision. We ensure that the doctors who perform hyaluronic acid injections at “Sapiega clinic” are of the highest qualification and have extensive experience in this field.
No special preparation is required before the procedure, but it is recommended not to overheat in the sun or sunbathing, not to take certain medications that may affect the procedure (blood thinners, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, so if you take anything – caution your doctor).
During the procedure, a small amount of stabilized hyaluronic acid from a special, sterile syringe is injected subcutaneously into the areas of the wrinkles with a thin needle. As already mentioned, hyaluronic acid is injected evenly and precisely to provide a stable volume effect in the areas to be formed and evenly fills the gaps between the collagen fibres – fills in wrinkles, begins skin hydration, stimulates collagen synthesis and forms new skin fibres. The procedure of hyaluronic acid injection takes around 30 to 60 minutes, depending on its volume.
The medicinal products injected at “Sapiega clinic” meet the strictest standards of medical research, technologically ensure product’s safety, reliability and longevity of the desired results. These are certified hyaluronic acid fillers that have been clinically tested, monitored and compared for long-term results.
The hyaluronic acid filler pack contains one syringe (1 to 1.2 ml) and several sterile non-traumatic needles, which are necessary for the safe and high-quality performance of the procedure. This syringe pack is opened in front of you only and is for your use only.
Because skin fillers do not contain proteins foreign to the human body, the likelihood of allergic reactions is extremely low, and over time, the preparations are completely broken down in the human body. These properties give the products special security.
For the first few hours after the hyaluronic acid injection, the skin at the injection site may be red, slightly swollen – a normal skin reaction that resolves within a few hours. After the procedure, direct sunlight and heating in the sauna should be avoided for some time (usually up to a week). All the necessary information about skin care at home will be provided by a specialist treating you.
