Hyaluronic Acid Injection

This is a primary nonsurgical youthline sculpting technique. At most, 0.25–0.3 cc on average of lower molecular weight hyaluronic acids is necessary at each side to create an definedobvious shape of youthline. The overall injection process takes only 5–10 min, and the results last for approximately 6 months. Some patients first undergo hyaluronic acid injection to evaluate the results of the youthliness to serve as an expectation and a reference point for the subsequent following fascia implantation surgery.
