Why do some people have their oval changed over time?

This fat ends up in the lower face, our skin loses its elasticity, and the oval form changes.5,58,66

Why can hyaluronic acid treat oval form changes?

Thanks to its volumising effect, Hyaluronic Acid can therefore be used to plump up the hollows and sagging areas, resulting in a younger and fresher looking face with sharp contours. 5,26,66

Which hyaluronic acid treatments are suitable to redefine the oval of the face?

Injectable HA dermal fillers can help to restore facial volume loss and consequently, the oval of our face. Strategic and skilful placement of facial fillers can create a lifting effect and support the face with a natural looking result with no need for a surgical procedure.50,81

In addition to treating our oval contours, the skin will look firmer and smoother and our cheeks and chin can be redefined and given more definition, adding support where it is needed most.66

 

How many treatments are needed to redefine the face oval?

As well as redesigning the face oval, HA fillers give us an immediate and natural boost and fullness to our cheekbones, helping to lift the whole of the mid-face.29,66

The total effect of the procedure is visible after about two to three weeks and can last up to 18 months, depending on several factors: our skin type, the severity of the default to change, the type of injection and the volume of product injected.29,75,82

If the treatment is regularly repeated, smaller doses are required with each treatment.77,79
This procedure requires restoring large volumes therefore the aesthetic judgement of the practitioner is very important.

Consult your physician to get the best advice in terms of HA fillers type and usage in different areas of the face and the use of skincare at home.

Marionette lines

Marionette lines are the lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin. The problem with marionette lines is that they tend to show emotion, even if we’re not trying to express anything, leading others to believe that we’re sad, angry or disappointed.42,66

Nasolabial folds

Nasolabial folds are sometimes referred to as smile or laugh lines.65 These lines typically, curve down from the side of our nose to the corners of our mouth.42
