Fillers – hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, which decreases with age, causing wrinkles and facial melting. Hyaluronic acid injections can treat the signs of ageing by filling in wrinkles and providing volume.

  • You have wrinkles, even at rest
  • You have wrinkles and you are not ready for surgery
  • You want your skin regains its radiance
  • You want to improve volume in certain areas of your face

Hyaluronic acid injections do not cause scarring.


The first consultation with Dr Thomet will allow you to get to know your surgeon, to present your situation and your wishes to them. In order to fill in your medical records, she will ask you about your medical history, any operations you have had in the past, as well as the list of any medication you are taking or allergies you may have. Herpes labialis is a contraindication to the lip injection because it may trigger an attack of vesicles.
A physical exam will be carried out and your measurements taken, and in some cases, photos will be taken, which will remain confidential and will only be used for your medical records.
At the end of the consultation, Dr Thomet will give her diagnosis and will advise you whether you are a good candidate for surgery. She will explain to you the technique she plans to use, the recovery time and the risks of complications.
After you have had time to think it over, a second consultation will be scheduled, in order to perform the treatment.


Hyaluronic acid injection is regarded as aesthetic surgery. As a result, they are not covered by health insurance. A cost estimate will be forwarded to you after the first consultation.


A hyaluronic acid injection does not require the use of anaesthesia. However, an anaesthetic cream can be applied one hour before treatment.


The injection is performed in the office and therefore does not require hospitalisation.


After the injection, you may experience some redness or bruising, but these disappear quickly. You should plan a makeup retouch.


It is recommended to avoid exposure to the sun and to excessive heat the week following the injection. Also, physical activity is not recommended during this period.
