Hyaluronic, hyaluronic fillers
Hyaluronic acid (or hyaluronic filler) is a glycosaminoglycan, i.e. a natural substance that is already in the connective tissue of the skin. Over time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the connective tissue is lost, the skin loses its elasticity, youthful glow and fullness. It becomes thin and dry, wrinkles are formed around the lips, on the forehead or around the eyes. At the same time, the natural fullness and freshness of the lips is lost.
Hyaluronic fillers restore the lost amount of hyaluronic tissue to the connective tissue, which instantly leads to the restoration of the fullness and radiance of the skin. Hyaluronic fillers hydrate the skin and consequently correct wrinkles. They are ideal for anyone who wants to remove deep facial wrinkles without surgery.
Is hyaluronic acid treatment safe?
Hyaluronic acid is a relatively new preparation that was licensed for use in dermatology in 2003 after numerous clinical studies on a large number of patients, and has been used for a decade.
Hyaluronic treatment is a safe procedure because it is a natural ingredient of the skin.
Where can a hyaluronic filler be applied?
Hyaluronic fillers are injected into the skin of the face to fill deeper wrinkles, or into the skin of the lips to contour or fill the lips.
Today, hyaluronic acid is most often used for lip augmentation, but it is not uncommon to use it to eliminate nasolabial or smoking wrinkles. Laughing wrinkles can also be neutralized with hyaluronic fillers. Newer methods include the application of hyaluronic acid in the form of a network in the region of the cheek, as a way of restoring to the skin what it has lost over time. Hyaluronic filler effectively tightens the skin around the edge of the lower jaw (jaw line) and gives the face a youthful appearance.
Unlike botox, hyaluronic acid is more commonly used in the lower thirds of the face. In the upper thirds, it is used for the correction of dark circles and for filling in forehead wrinkles, between the eyebrows and in the region around the eyes, after the previous application of botox (when the wrinkle is deep and botox alone is not enough to eliminate it).
In the middle third of the face, the effective enlargement of the cheekbones with hyaluronic acid is already widely known.
Non-surgical corrections of the nose with hyaluronic fillers are also present. They are used with bent and “hooked” noses to straighten the ridge of the nose. Such corrections are very successful and the nose looks nice. You need to know that these corrections do not make the nose smaller, on the contrary, they make it slightly larger but very regular, so that it only looks smaller optically.
In addition to the above, the use of hyaluronic fillers is really wide:
- for regeneration, revitalization of the skin on the face, neck, cleavage and hands
- Filling fine wrinkles on the face, neck, cleavage and fists.
- Hand regeneration
- Filling the cheeks
- Raising the tip of the nose
- Filling wrinkles on the neck, cleavage, between the breasts
- Filled wrinkles on the cleavage, between the breasts
- Filling wrinkles around the eyes
- Tightening the jaw lines
- Filling acne scars
- Tightening the chin skin
Hyaluronic fillers are obtained in the form of a gel, which is injected into the skin of the face or lips and serves to fill wrinkles and increase the volume of a given region. The idea of applying hyaluronic fillers is to achieve the look you had several years ago. Before applying, we get acquainted with your wishes and look at all aspects, both health and aesthetic.
What does hyaluronic filler treatment look like?
With the help of a small hyaluronic needle the acid is injected into the skin for smoothing the wrinkles.
The procedure itself takes a short time, depending on the region being worked on, it can take about half an hour. It is best to start using hyaluronic acid immediately after the appearance of the first wrinkles. Wrinkles are corrected much better when they are in the beginning, because they are still superficial and hyaluronic fillers can correct them much better. The procedure of applying hyaluronic fillers is safe, comfortable and efficient, and most importantly natural and its effects are visible immediately.
The effect of hyaluronic fillers lasts from 6 to 9 months, depending on the place of application and skin type.
Do hyaluronic fillers hurt?
The hyaluronic acid injection procedure is not pleasant, which is why local anesthesia is applied, which eliminates pain during the intervention, and the procedure is easily tolerated.
Applying hyaluronic fillers to the cheekbones is not a painful procedure and does not require anesthesia.
Hyaluronic filler in the lips
Immediately after applying hyaluronic fillers, the lips are swollen and red. It is recommended that only 1 ml of hyaluronic filler is applied in the first act in order to avoid overdoing it. In the next period of about two weeks, the swelling recedes, hyaluronic acid binds and only then do we get a true picture of the appearance of the lips. This is the moment when, if necessary, symmetry or volume corrections are made. After the treatment with hyaluronic fillers, the lips are saggy, red and natural. They get a youthful appearance, because the amount of hyaluronic acid they lost over time is returned to them.
