With age, skin becomes dehydrated, thinner. It renews itself less and starts to sag. Fine lines begin to appear, followed by the dreaded wrinkles.
For women who want to fight against the results of aging, hyaluronic acid injection is the solution. It fills in lines and dark circles, treating fine lines (such as the lip contour) and deep ones (like the nasolabial fold) while respecting the natural harmony of your face.
Only mildly uncomfortable and without side effects, the results dermal filling are immediate and impressive. You instantly feel more attractive.
Dermal filling techniques
With dermal filling it is possible to restore a more youthful appearance quickly and completely. Above all, our aim is to maintain the natural appearance and general harmony of the face. To accomplish this, we respect the individual characteristics of each person, and avoid stereotypical standards such as the over-full lips and high cheekbones of the “Barbie doll”.
Dermal fillers can be absorbable (9 months), semi-permanent (12 to 30 months)or permanent. Today’s products restore greater volumes with longer results than in the past.
The principle volumizing products available today are polylactic acid, cross-linked hyaluronic acid, and acrylamide. These fillers have different molecular forms and can, over several months, fade both superficial and deep wrinkles of the face. They can also be used to increase lip volume and reduce acne scars effectively. Of course, the possibility of injection of non-absorbable products exists for those who want a quasi-definitive result.
• Filling of shallow and deep wrinkles of the face and neck.
• Increasing volume of lips, chin and/or cheekbones.
• Filling of scars on the face and body (including acne scars).
Multiple injections using a product and method tailored to suit your particular needs.
Once or twice a year, sometimes less.
Excellent, provided that a trained specialist, experienced in these methods, does the treatment. With the right practitioner, reshaping the mouth, cheeks or cheekbones is fast and easy. On aging skin, it is possible to obtain significant rejuvenation. The results are good provided you avoid excesses.
The key is to find a practitioner whom you can trust, one who can offer you what you actually need and/or refer you to a colleague with a more appropriate or complementary technique. This assures the right procedure for you and avoids unnecessary risks. As with any medical cosmetic procedure, one technique does not replace another; rather they can be complementary.
The advantages of the technique:
• Immediate improvement.
• Minimal side effects.
• Little or no discomfort
• No need to take time off work or from your social life
This price varies depending on the number of syringes and the concentration of hyaluronic acid used
• For injections of collagen, two skin tests are required 15 days apart, to minimize the risk of delayed hypersensitivity.
FAT INJECTION OR FILLING
Fat implanting or filling is another way to provide foundation for facial volume, or when a lot of volume is required.
Advantages: reduced cost of the implant (the client’s own fat) and no risk of foreign body reaction or allergy.
Disadvantages: sometimes several sessions of injections are required to achieve a stable result, and the donor tissue has to be extracted using local anesthesia.
Fat injection is a simple and fast to reshape the mouth, cheeks or cheekbones. The results are good if you avoid excesses.
We can also reduce areas that are too large if they are made of fatty tissue like the double chin, jowls and cheeks. We use local injections of adipolytic products, which destroy fat cells and refine the lower face.
What are dermal fillers?
We use the safest dermal fillers available and these are mostly complex sugar molecules that plump the skin. These natural molecules exist normally within the skin and have become the dermal filler of choice for dermatologists and plastic surgeons around the world. They are fully degradable complex sugar molecules which have been used around the world for several years now with an outstanding safety record.
These are in the form of a clear gel. It is injected into the skin to fill the lip, wrinkle or fold. Once in the skin, it creates volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip it can restore a more natural and/or sensuous look.
Lip enhancement is the most popular application of fillers. In addition lines on the upper and lower lip smooth and fill nicely with this product. Deeper wrinkles and folds in the cheek areas (nasolabial, melolabial and lines at the corners of the mouth) are the next most popular site for filler use. Other areas treated include the cheeks, under the eyes, jawline and acne scars
The treatment is performed by injecting the clear gel under your skin. The procedure can usually be done in less than 15 minutes. Many patients like the added comfort provided with an anesthetic cream, while others prefer an anesthetic block. This makes the treatment relatively painless.
Depending on the area treated, most folds and wrinkles require maintenance or repeat treatment. The product lasts in the skin for 9 to 12 months before being naturally dissolved.
Following your injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal although there is often some tenderness in the injected area for 2 days. The treatment site will usually have some swelling, although this often is not noticed by others. Lips are more prone to this transient swelling than other areas.
