Arriving at the surgery with a face marked by deep wrinkles and scars and coming out a few hours later with a skin with fewer wrinkles and new contours is today a reality, thanks to modern cosmetology. Thanks to advanced filling techniques, it is possible to give volume and beauty to the face.
As time goes on, the dermis gradually loses part of the hyaluronic acid it is composed of and our body is unable to produce enough amounts to counteract this phenomenon.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
It is a substance naturally produced by our body and present in the skin. Its function is to retain water, giving the skin hydration and volume.
Hyaluronic acid used in aesthetic medicine is not of animal origin but produced in a laboratory, very similar to that naturally present in the human body, thus it does not require any tolerance test.
Treatment of static wrinkles, namely those wrinkles visible at rest. Likewise, it may be indicated to increase the volume of the face and for the treatment of the facial contour. It can be combined with other treatments (laser, Botox, etc) to optimize the overall result.
Not all wrinkles can be treated with hyaluronic acid, it will be the doctor to evaluate the most appropriate therapeutic option for the individual blemish from time to time.
How is the treatment done?
This is an outpatient procedure, which does not require special preparations. A topical anaesthetic can be applied to make the procedure less annoying.
After the procedure you may experience redness, swelling or hematoma formation. They are all temporary side effects.
The duration of treatment will depend on the area treated, the degree of crosslinking of the product used and the basal metabolism of each patient, which may vary between six months and one year.
