Note that Hydrafill is no longer produced by Allergan.

Hydrafill is a hyaluronic acid treatment, produced using certain bacteria and extracting the beneficial protein acids. It is produced using Hylacross technology, which the manufacturer claims helps to create a smooth consistency. Hyaluronic acid works by retaining water in the skin and smoothing and plumping the skin by mimicking the body’s natural sugar acid processes. Treatment consists of a number of small injections just under the skin, using an ultra-fine needle. There are a range of products available which are specialised for different treatments, starting from very fine lines and wrinkles and working up to more intense treatments. A thorough discussion with your aesthetics practitioner can determine the best type and strength of treatment to create the desired look and effect on your skin.

After treatment with Hydrafill

The results of a hyaluronic acid treatment can be visible almost immediately after treatment, and you will certainly begin to see noticeable, beneficial effects after the very first treatment within a couple of days. You will probably experience a little redness and swelling in the treated area but this should subside after a couple of days and you ought to be able to return to your normal routine, including work, after this initial recovery period. Manufacturers and practitioners recommend a couple of course of treatment to achieve the best overall effect and you will probably be called back for a follow-up consultation after your procedure to ensure you have received the best possible treatment and care.

Side effects of Hydrafill

Side-effects are relatively mild, and in general should only last about 2 days but may last up to a week. Typically they will include: redness; pain or tenderness; and swelling in the treated area. Any more serious reactions are rare but should any occur, or if the milder side-effects persist you ought to consult your physician immediately. Any treatments that include injection or intrusion of any kind carry the potential risk of infection, although this is very rare. A good consultant will thoroughly discuss any potential side-effects and out comes with you, and also talk through your medical history with you. Patients with a history of allergic reaction to gram protein bacteria products should avoid hyaluronic acid treatments, and your consultant should enquire into any known allergies before proceeding with any treatment.
