Hyaluronic fillers

During the aging process skin loses hyaluronic acid, collage and important subdermal fat tissue that supports it. The consequences of this process are wrinkles, face losing volume, and skin becomes less elastic, tired and without glow.

Hyaluronic fillers have become the most sought for means for getting rid of signs of aging. Short time of the procedure, security and easily noticeable results are the most important advantages of this treatment.

Hyaluronic fillers contain Hyaluronic acid that has the identical molecular structure to one that our body produces, and which is the main part of our cells and the space between the cells, has an important role in water balance and regeneration because it enables adequate hydration. Hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge in the skin retaining large amounts of water and so the skin stays tight and soft.

It is important to stress out that Hyaluronic fillers enable reaching and keeping natural face contours.

Compatible and biodegradable in the skin

The effects of Hyaluronic fillers are as follows:

  • Adding cross – linked hyaluronic acid provides a normal amount of water in the tissue in the long run, which makes the skin hydrated, elastic and firm after the treatment
  • Makes up for the volume lost by degrading subdermal fat tissue, decreases or completely eliminates wrinkles, and the face looks young
  • For that reason hyaluronic fillers represent an ideal antiaging procedure for eliminating wrinkles, face contouring and neck rejuvenation
  • The treatments can be started as soon as the first visible wrinkles appear. One annual treatment is needed to maintain the young appearance

Hyaluronic fillers can be used for:

  • Cheek bones and face rejuvenation
  • Cheek bones and cheeks contouring
  • Lips contouring and enlargement
  • Maintaining lip corners
  • Removing wrinkles on the forehead and the root of nose
  • Removing wrinkles around the eyes
  • Removing wrinkles around the lips
  • Removing nasolabial wrinkles (lines stretching from the base of the nose to the exterior lip corner – smiling wrinkles)
  • Removing small scars
  • Hands rejuvenation

PREPARATION

Consultation with the doctor performing the procedure is extremely important.

Things you will talk about are:

  • Your needs and expectations
  • All options and similar products
  • Your medical history

Adequate preparation consists of making an individual plan for the patient, detailed make up removal and possible applying of anesthetic cream or local anesthesia.

PROCEDURE

Applying the filler is performed by using a pre-filled sterile syringe and needle or cannula. A line with integrated anesthetic lidocaine is implemented for your comfort.

The depth of the injection depends on the type of hyaluronic acid gel and wanted results. Superficial injections hydrate the skin and bring back the glow, while deeper injection fill out the wrinkles and produce volume.

After injecting the hyaluronic acid into the wanted area, the doctor softly massages the place to which the acid was applied to.

Average time for this procedure is between 20-40 minutes.

RECOVERY AND CARE

First results are most often instantly noticed. Full results are reached in two weeks. Hyaluronic acid is dispersed through skin. On the skin’s surface it increases its hydration, softness in elasticity. On a deeper level, it fills out blanks between the lines, and softens the wrinkles.

Appearance of temporary bruising or mild swelling around the treated area are possible, depending of the skin type. They disappear in a couple of days.

Allergic reaction is possible, but very rare.

Few months after the injection, hyaluronic acid begins to naturally degrade and the skin absorbs it as any other natural ingredient.

Depending on the area that has been treated, the results may be visible even in the following 18 months.

Recovery time is short. You can go back to your normal activities the next day, but take precautions. Things to be mindful of:

  • Avoid saunas after the treatment
  • Avoid sun or low temperatures
  • Avoid going to tanning salons
  • Avoid applying pressure to the area that has been treated
  • Do not consume aspirin, cardiopirin, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, vitamin E and alcohol 7 days before and 3 days after the treatment.
