- What is hyaluronic acid?
Unfortunately, as our age increases, our hyaluronic acid production decreases. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that is found naturally in the human body. The main function of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to keep it moist, provide volume and assist in the formation of new tissue.
- Where does your Hyaluronic Acid come from?
It comes from an extracellular protein produced by a fermentation process. Our products are not derived from any animal source and are not tested on animals. Hypersensitivity reactions should not be a concern. The weight of the molecule directly influences its “moisture-binding” capability.
- "Non-cross" vs. "cross-linked" hyaluronic acid
"Non-cross-linked" hyaluronic acid in its natural form is in a liquid state. It is indicated for the treatment of fine wrinkles or for revitalization and rejuvenation the skin. "Cross-linking" is the process through which hyaluronic acid is made into a gel that can be injected into the skin for long-lasting results.

- How are OTESALY® Dermal Filler products injected?
The procedure is simple and takes no longer than 30 minutes. Depending on the area to be treated, a small local anaesthesia could be performed to increase your comfort. OTESALY® fillers are injected into the skin using a very fine special needle. The correction is seen immediately.
- Are there any possible side effects?
The results are instantly visible. After the treatment with OTESALY® related reactions may occur, such as some mild swelling and redness. These are usually resolved spontaneously after a few hours. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment. It usually takes 1-2 days for the skin to return to being smooth.
- How long do the OTESALY® products last?
The effects of the treatment with OTESALY® are long lasting but not permanent. Individual results will depend on a variety of factors, e.g. Location of application, and the patient’s age, skin type, skin conditions, metabolism and lifestyle. In most cases the effect lasts for 6 - 24 months.
- How should I behave after the treatment?
Do not expose your treated area for 3-4 days to intense heat or cold. During this time frame you should avoid alcohol, sauna sessions and sunbathing. Do not massage the treated area.
- What is the difference between botox and hyaluronic acid?
Although both these products are used to treat wrinkles, they are completely different in terms of both their composition and action. Botox does not actually treat the wrinkle itself. Botox is a toxic product (botulinum toxin) that paralyses the muscles into which it is injected. By paralysing the muscle expressions are reduced and by reducing expressions, expression lines can be avoided. Botox is therefore a preventive method.Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible gel that is injected under the skin into the wrinkle, to fill it. With Hyaluronic acid, the existing wrinkle is therefore treated directly.The only thing the two products have in common is that they are resorbed over time and, therefore, injections have to be repeated periodically, every 6 to 10 months for a botox injection or every 12 to 18 months for a hyaluronate acid injection.
