Filler hyaluronic acid

We will give you your desired volume.

 
What is hyaluronic acid and how does it work?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the human body. The active ingredient is found in many types of tissue and is mainly present in the skin, joints and muscles, etc.. Hyaluronic acid gives volume and elasticity to the skin and gives it, youthful tone. The ingenious ability to bind water in the tissue is the property we need for aesthetic medicine.

The hyaluronic acid content of the skin decreases with age, which means it does not remain the same throughout life. Natural aging processes cause a continuous degradation of the active ingredients hyaluronic acid and collagen. This decline begins as early as the age of 25 and then progresses inexorably. Around the age of 60, only 10 percent of the original amount of hyaluronic acid is left in the body. This leaves clearly visible traces on our face. Connective tissue and skin lose volume and sag, facial structures sag and wrinkles appear.

Hyaluronic acid works in two ways in the fight against wrinkles. The wrinkles are filled by the volume of hyaluronic acid. This effect is visible immediately after the treatment. Another effect is, through its biological function, to bind water. The injected hyaluronic acid ensures that gradually more moisture is bound in the tissue. Which leads to a volume increase, which is reflected in firmer, smoother skin. The active ingredient stimulates tissue growth and promotes the formation of collagen. Both contribute to a lasting aesthetic improvement of the skin.

Less suitable for wrinkle injections with hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, are active wrinkles such as expression lines, which are caused by direct muscle contraction. To eliminate these wrinkles, treatment with Botox is much more effective.

Treatment procedure

Hyaluronic acid injections are a non-surgical treatment. There are different hyaluronic acid, for suitable regions, which we select individually.

Before the treatment, a personal consultation is arranged. It should be looked at together with you, which region is affected and what your wishes are. Before the injection, a local anesthetic is applied, either with an anesthetic or with a surface anesthetic to the desired area. Although the treatment is painless, it makes it more comfortable. The procedure varies depending on the type of wrinkle and the desired area. Also, depending on the treatment goal, injections are made into the deeper or superficial layer of the skin, which depends on the desired result. Depending on the consistency and amount of filler material, a very fine needle or even a blunt cannula is used. It is possible that small hematomas and/ or small swellings may occur, so the injected area should be cooled afterwards. The good thing about this treatment is that you are immediately fit for company again. After 2 weeks we will have a check-up appointment to see if we have achieved a nice, even result.

Effect

The result is visible immediately. But will unfold to the effective effect in the next 2-3 weeks. Hyaluronic acid is temporarily effective and is gradually broken down by the kidneys. Thus, after some time, the result also fades. How quickly or slowly hyaluronic acid is broken down by the organism depends on several factors and varies from person to person. As a result, the durability of the results also varies. The average value is 6 to 12 months, in some cases the effect lasts a year or longer.
