“Every face is different.“
Your face, with its shapes and contours, changes throughout your lifetime. The curves and accents are not always how you wish. Your lips may not be full enough or your cheekbones too flat. You may have started developing lines at the corners of your mouth or have dark circles under your eyes.
Dr. Hubmann can offer hyaluronic acid injection to treat these and many other problems.
Hyaluronic acid injection is a close analog of the hyaluronic acid the body produces. When introduced below the skin, it increases volume by binding to water there. This smooths wrinkles, makes lips fuller, and/or adds expression to lean parts of the face. For men the jaw can also be shaped to give it a more angular appearance.
Many people associate hyaluronic acid with balloon-like lips or mask-like faces. However, Dr. Hubmann’s treatment objective is to make changes that look natural. His goal is for you to look attractive and refreshed after your treatment.

During the personalized consultation, Dr. Hubmann will discuss the wide range of hyaluronic acid applications with you and develop an individual treatment plan based on his ABSOLUTELY YOU concept
As with all of his treatments, Dr. Hubmann performs hyaluronic acid injection with the utmost precision. You will receive close attention and care from both him and our team before, during, and after the procedure. Your compliance with recommendations is essential to ensure that you enjoy long-lasting treatment benefits. Please adhere strictly to all guidelines after treatment. This will pave the way to a new YOU.
It is important for you to cool the injected area immediately after treatment. Cold packs are made available to minimize swelling and bruises. Vigorous physical exertion or use the sauna within 48 hours of treatment should be avoided. You may apply makeup to the treated area, with the exception of the lips, 2 hours after treatment.
You may experience minor swelling or bruises. After injection, your lips may initially appear redder than usual. If this is the case, you should refrain from applying lipstick. Instead, you should apply high-fat lip balm to your lips. You may apply light makeup to other parts of your face 2 hours after treatment. You may not feel comfortable going out in public for the first 1 to 3 days after treatment, since the treated areas might still be apparent at this point.
You will see the increase in volume right away. In fact, at first, the volume may even be a bit excessive due to swelling. However, in most cases, your face will recover within a week and the hyaluronic acid will have exerted its full effect. When you look in the mirror, the new YOU will smile back.
Hyaluronic acid treatment can easily be combined with other procedures during the same session. These may include Botox® wrinkle treatment, thread lifting or other operative procedures. Please do not hesitate to discuss your goals with Dr. Hubmann during your personalized consultation.
Performing hyaluronic acid treatment requires in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy and a great deal of finesse during injection. As an experienced specialist plastic and aesthetic surgeon, Dr. Hubmann will carefully match the injection sites and volumes to your individual needs to bring about exactly the results you desire.
Over time, the body will break down the injected hyaluronic acid. While the time for this varies from person to person, in most cases the facial volume will decrease again after 8 or 9 months. The treatment may then be repeated. Each successive treatment lasts longer, so you will likely need treatment only once every 12 months. In addition, you can protect your skin from aging by consistently applying sun protection and diligently caring for your skin.
