Hyaluronic Acid – Moisture for Tighter Skin

Using hyaluronic acid, the skin experts at Rosenpark Clinic give the skin new elasticity, moisture, tone and more volume. It is also suitable for contouring and plumping the upper and lower lips.

When fine facial lines turn into deeper wrinkles, the skin has lost its ability to store moisture deep in the subcutaneous layer. Its volume decreases.

Using hyaluronic acid, the skin experts at Rosenpark Clinic give your skin new elasticity, moisture, tone and more volume – frequently also combined with other methods for regenerative facial rejuvenation. Hyaluronic acid is also suitable for contouring and plumping the upper and lower lips.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding glucose compound which is found naturally in the body: in tendons, ligaments, articular cartilage and above all in the skin. It

  • supports, smoothes and tightens the skin
  • activates cell regeneration
  • protects against environmental influences.

With age, the body loses the ability to produce hyaluronic acid on its own.


In medicine, hyaluronic acid is successfully used to treat osteoarthritis. Since the 1990s, it has been used in aesthetic medicine as a filler for wrinkle injection, volume therapy and to fill in tissue. In addition, hyaluronic acid is an ingredient in skin cosmetics.


Hyaluronic acid products can be found in various levels of cross-linking:

  • low level of cross-linking: very smooth, diffuser, superficially used levels fine upper lip wrinkles, lip region, horizontal wrinkles on the forehead and neck; used also for Deep Meso.
  • higher level of cross-linking: more stable, for the treatment of deeper wrinkles and to add volume
  • very high level of cross-linking: very stable, for placement in very deep subcutaneous layers to act as a deep “moisturizer” to rejuvenate the skin, for supportive additional of volume during facelift surgeries and for body contouring

Less cross-linked hyaluronic acid is broken down after about six months; substances with a greater degree of cross-linking last at least up to two years.
The modern preparations which we use at Rosenpark Clinic include products of the ranges of Juvederm®, Emervel®, Belotero® and Restylane®.

What is hyaluronic acid used for?

At Rosenpark Clinic, we use various hyaluronic acid products for the following treatments:

  • Injections into the nasolabial folds
  • Filling out creases at the corners of the mouth (marionette lines) and lifting the corners of the mouth
  • Cheek augmentation
  • Cheekbone augmentation
  • Treatment of under-eye circles
  • Lifting of the eyebrows in the case of hooded eyes
  • Lip contouring and injection (volume and shape)
  • Injection into the upper lip area (smoothening of creases)
  • Smoothening of frown wrinkles (between the eyebrows) and forehead wrinkles
  • Chin modeling
  • To rejuvenate the skin and smooth out superficial creases
  • Neck wrinkles
  • Décolleté lines

How is it administered?

Hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin using a very thin needle or blunt cannula, linearly or in a fan-like or columnar fashion, as needed.

Is some sort of anesthesia required?

The treatment is performed under local anesthesia using a cream. For more information about your options for a comfortable, pain-free treatment see the anesthesia section.

 

When can I resume normal daily activities?

Essentially immediately. The treatment is performed on an outpatient basis. Mild redness or swelling is normal and completely disappears on its own within the first few hours – on the lips after 1-2 days.

Expert tip:

Dr. Sonja Sattler: "Hyaluronic acid is a top-quality provider of moisture – when used early and regularly, it can significantly slow down signs of aging of the skin.

What else can you do?

  • The effect can be supported by regular skin care with a moisturizing cream containing hyaluronic acid.
  • At Rosenpark Clinic, we also use Hyaluron Skin Booster, the derivative of the hyaluronic acid injection. The highly fluid product can be applied over large areas of the uppermost or deeper layer of skin and gives a radiance to the skin.
