One of the possibilities of wrinkle treatment is injections with dermal fillers/hyaluronic acid (chemically correct hyaluronan), which is a natural component found throughout the body.
To be precise, hyaluronic acid is not an acid, but a sugar (polysaccharide), which has the ability to bind a lot of water to itself.
This is used for wrinkle injections. Since the skin’s ability to store water reduces already from the age of 25-30 years, hyaluronic acid added from the outside helps moisturise the skin and neutralise free radicals.
Wrinkle injection with hyaluronic acid – a clear matter
The products used for wrinkle treatments (Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse Sculptra, Ellanse) contain 1-3% of hyaluronan and are usually gel-like in consistency and transparent.
Generally, the finer the wrinkle or the thinner the skin (eye wrinkles), the thinner the gel; the deeper or even sunken a region (for example in the face), the thicker or even of granular consistency (cheekbone, cheek structure) the material must be to achieve the optimum filling and lifting tasks.
Which dermal filler (Hyaluron gel) for which problem?
Thus, this dermal filler can be used for injecting individual wrinkles (for example, nasal/cheek wrinkles), for moisturising wrinkles and fine lines, for larger-volume facial modelling (liquid lifting) and many other types of wrinkle injections.
Depending on the nature of the technique and the depth in which you want to have the hyaluronic acid in the skin or below, we use pointed short or long blunt cannulas (Pix’l cannula) – each for its individual purpose of wrinkle injection specifically with hyaluronic acid.
In general, one or the other type of hyaluronic acid is suitable for:
- Eye wrinkles
- Eye bags
- Wrinkles and lines
- Cheekbone structure
- Nasolabial folds
- Smile lines
- Cheek folds
- Smoker wrinkles
- Lip shaping
- Correction of drooping mouth corners
- Dark eye circles
- Earlobe correction
- Chin building/wrinkles
- Neck folds
Compatibility of hyaluronic acid
Dermal fillers can be dosed very accurately and are well tolerated. Their effects are visible immediately and last between 6 and 12 months (some products last even up to 18 months) and are naturally resorbed. Since most hyaluronic gel products contain the anaesthetic Lidocaine, the treatments are virtually painless during wrinkle injections. We also use an anaesthetic cream prior to your treatment. For certain areas, a nerve block may be used.
Exclusive manufacturers offer an immediate solution for every wrinkle depth and region, and you get beautiful, even results. The actual treatment takes about 10 to 15 minutes.
Right after the treatment, you might experience a slight redness of the area and some minor discomfort which only lasts for a very short time.
