Hyaluronic Acid in the Canary Islands
Recover a youthful face easily
The best treatments with hyaluronic acid in the Canary Islands
When we pass our thirties, our skin begins to suffer little by little the decay caused by the passage of time. The face is one of the areas where this is most visible: little by little the first wrinkles begin to appear and the skin loses the firmness it showed when we were twenty years old.
We all want to preserve the youthfulness of our skin and thus maintain the aesthetics we had years ago. It is at this point that we begin to look for solutions to help us stop the biological clock, and even turn it back if possible.
This is where the importance of Hyaluronic Acid treatment comes into play, as it is a substance that has great benefits for the care and rejuvenation of the skin. If you want to recover the youthfulness of your face, our hyaluronic acid treatment in the Canary Islands is the best solution.
What is hyaluronic acid?
The first thing you need to know about hyaluronic acid treatment in the Canary Islands is that this substance is naturally present in our body. It is especially abundant in the cutaneous areas, i.e. in the skin. Technically, it is a polysaccharide that belongs to the glycosaminoglycan group. In more mundane terms, this means that hyaluronic acid is a type of sugar.
The main functions of hyaluronic acid in the skin are:
- 1. Moisturise the skin and maintain volume.
- 2. To keep the skin smooth and prevent sagging.
- 3. It helps to repair tissues such as scars, blemishes and so on.
The problem with hyaluronic acid is that, like collagen, its concentration decreases as we get older. This is what causes our skin to degrade over time.
That is why hyaluronic acid is an excellent treatment to rejuvenate the skin, keeping it smooth and hydrated. It is applied to the skin in various ways, the most popular nowadays are injections, but it can also be found in a multitude of cosmetic products. At Clínica ICA we bring you the best treatments with hyaluronic acid in the Canary Islands so that you can recover the youthfulness of your face once and for all.
¿How hyaluronic acid treatment works in the Canary Islands?
In our treatments in the Canary Islands, hyaluronic acid is injected into the face using very fine needles. At this point we can talk about two different types of treatment depending on the type of hyaluronic acid we use, which will vary depending on the results we want to obtain.
Basically, in our hyaluronic acid treatments we use two types of substance:
- 1. Cross-linked hyaluronic acid. This type of acid is characterised because it has molecules of greater consistency, which is why its main use is to give volume and fill out the skin. It is therefore recommended for use in cases where there is flaccidity, very marked wrinkles, or for the filling of very marked furrows and lips.
- 2. Non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid. The main use of this type of acid is to improve the quality and appearance of the skin. This is because it is used for moisturising treatments through microinjections such as mesotherapy. The aim is to capture water and hydrate the skin and it is injected in small doses. This treatment is often combined with the use of vitamins or amino acid precursors of collagen and elastin.

Frequently asked questions about hyaluronic acid at ICA
What is hyaluronic acid used for?
When we incorporate this substance externally into our skin what we do is stimulate our own hyaluronic acid as well as the synthesis of collagen. This, together with the aforementioned properties of hydration, elasticity and luminosity, allows us to treat a multitude of facial problems.
This is the most fashionable substance in the world of aesthetics and not by chance; it is super versatile and totally safe, as it is something that belongs to the organism itself.
When is the effect of hyaluronic acid noticeable?
One of the main reasons why hyaluronic acid is so widely used is because of the immediacy of its results.
A hyaluronic acid filler session takes about 30 minutes, sometimes even less. The acid will be injected in the areas that the professional has determined in a previous analysis to achieve the desired results.
When the session is over, a slight swelling in the treated area is to be expected. This swelling will diminish as the days go by, and in about 7-10 days we will be able to enjoy the results of the treatment in an optimal way.
You can combat the swelling by applying cold to the affected area and avoiding heat sources such as sunlight.
From this point onwards, the filling effects that hyaluronic acid provides to our skin can last between 6 and 24 months depending on the areas where the treatment has been carried out and the particular conditions of the person receiving it.
It is recommended to have a check-up twice a year in case small corrections need to be made to the treated areas.
Where does the hyaluronic acid come from?
In this section we have to differentiate between two main sources of hyaluronic acid, animal and vegetable origin.
In the beginning, it was extracted from shark fins, but this process was too expensive and endangered the species.
It was also extracted from the eyes of cattle, but was banned when mad cow syndrome broke out.
Nowadays it is mainly extracted from the crests of roosters, as it is a cheaper and safer process. In our hyaluronic acid treatments in Tenerife and La Palma we only use materials of the best quality and with all safety guarantees.
In natural cosmetics is where these solutions are mainly used, the main extraction processes are through biosynthesis of cereals or cellulose.
This is a form of extraction that respects the sustainability of the environment. There is also a characteristic that makes this process of obtaining a better source and that is that molecules of a smaller size are obtained, which allows it to penetrate the skin better and be absorbed more easily.
There is one last plant-based way of obtaining hyaluronic acid, which is to synthesise it through bacteria.
