Treatments with fillers
Injecting: "The fast way to fill wrinkles".
From birth, human skin is subject to a permanent renewal process: new horny layers are always being formed and old ones are being shed. However, our skin is also subject to an aging process that proceeds at different rates in different individuals. Influences such as individual predisposition (heredity), hormonal status, loss of collagen fibers and subcutaneous fatty tissue can also contribute to the formation of wrinkles, as can sun exposure/exposure of the skin, lifestyle habits (especially smoking) and the activity of the facial muscles (a lively facial expression).
For deeper wrinkles, hyaluronic acid injections are a very good and less invasive method of choice. Hyaluronic acids are genetically engineered natural polysaccharides (multiple sugars) that occur biologically in human tissues and serve as a "cementing substance" between cells, e.g. in the skin, synovial fluid, bone and eye. In the course of natural skin aging and due to light damage, the natural hyaluronic acid content and thus the elasticity of the skin decreases. Through the injection, this can be restored and wrinkles can be evened out.
The big advantage: hardly any traces of the procedure are visible after just a few minutes. The disadvantage: the results last only for a limited time. You must expect that the material will be broken down by the body after 6-12 months. Then - depending on the type of material and individual predisposition - a follow-up treatment is necessary.
What side effects can occur: With all substances, redness of the skin or swelling may occur immediately after the injection, which usually subside after a few hours without therapy.
As after any other injection, in individual cases, especially in immunocompromised patients, inflammation of the skin and subcutaneous tissue with abscess formation, hematoma, tissue destruction, scabbing and scarring, as well as sensory disturbances in the treated areas cannot be ruled out. Hyaluronic acid should not be used in cases of known allergies, autoimmune diseases, during pregnancy and breastfeeding. .
In patients who have had multiple herpes infections on the face, herpes may recur in the area of the injection site.
Blood thinners, such as aspirin, should not have been taken for one week before treatment. After treatment, you should avoid direct sunlight and heat such as sauna for two weeks.
