Fillers – Wrinkle treatment

Fillers – Wrinkle treatment

Many skin problems can be resolved with the simple insertion of a synthetic or biological substance. These products, generally known as “fillers”, are generally used in the same way, though they differ in terms of their characteristics and origins. The objective of the fillers is to reconstruct the skin layers, thus helping to combat wrinkles, thinning of the skin and scarring. The material used in these fillers must at all times be biocompatible, meaning that it causes no reactions in the body. It must also able to be injected into the skin and adaptable to the anatomical structure of the body.

Resorbable fillers


HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic Acid is a completely natural and bio-interactive substance, exactly the same as that present in skin tissue, which with the aging process experiences a constant and considerable decrease.
Let’s not forget that it is precisely this substance which gives compactness to the edges of our profile, stimulating the formation of new collagen, improving the cohesion between the cells of the epidermis and fight the aging effect of free radicals.
Easy to achieve simply by making sure that a high content of hyaluronic acid is present in the skin tissue. Inserted using various techniques, it gives the patient an immediately visible improvement and, in time, is able to combat the areas of the body most at risk of aging.
What’s more, because it can be distributed evenly and uniformly throughout the dermis, it can be used with optimal results on the lips, both small and deep wrinkles, folds, scars and the neck and chest area.
The youthfulness of the face, in fact, depends greatly on the skin tone of these extremely vulnerable areas, continually affected by the intense activity of the expression muscles and atmospheric agents, which leave visible marks.
In order for the “biorevitalisation” programme, which depending on the case will be either preventative or restorative, to have easily appreciable results, it is necessary to have two to three sessions, with a gap of ten to twenty days in between each one.
To then maintain the results obtained by the treatment it is recommended to have more treatment after 2-3 months.
Studies have shown that after around 12 weeks 80% of the area treated will still have visible results, and after 24 weeks more than half of the area of the face will still have a noticeable effect. With some patients the results can last for as long as a year, with the average being six months.
This depends on a series of factors, such as the anatomical make up of the patient, the condition of the skin itself or the technique used in the insertion of the hyaluronic acid.
There have been no indications of negative reaction or hypersensitivity found.
Some patients will experience a small, temporary reaction in the treated area, which should be considered completely normal, lasting only a short time and not likely to cause any complications.
More serious reactions such as swelling or bruising occur in less than 2% of cases, though it should be noted that people who suffer from problems related to bleeding and blood coagulation are more susceptible.
 

COLLAGEN

Injected into the lips in the same way as hyaluronic acid but with a greater effect over time. It is extracted from bovine cartilage, meaning that an allergy test is necessary before treatment is carried out. This treatment can also be effective when treating small face wrinkles, particularly on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and around the mouth.
 

Evolence®

A new collagen-based filler, used, in the same way as bovine collagen-based or hyaluronic acid-based fillers, not only to remove signs of aging and reduce scarring but to help tone cheekbones and lips. This type of collagen is most similar to the collagen naturally produced by the human body, meaning that it can be used without the need of preliminary tests. 
The results can last up to 12 months, whereas other fillers will last only 3-4 months before the substance is reabsorbed into the body.

 

NEW FILL

A new type of biodegradable injectable filler to correct wrinkles or other issues related to connective tissue. Used in many surgical procedures, it is secure, reliable and effective, and no preliminary tests are necessary.

Granules of polylactic acid are inserted into the skin and, after around two months, become reabsorbed, provoking the production of collagen, meaning that no foreign body is left in the skin. The results are visible in the days after the insertion of the filler and the increase in the depth of the skin is permanent, though with the continuation of the aging process it will be necessary to perform the operation again over the years.

This procedure can be used to treat folds and face wrinkles, skin defects, cheekbones, cheeks, the nose, acne scarring and to increase lip volume. If patients experience significant pain in the area treated, anaesthesia can be used. As the injection is made there will be a slight reddening of the skin, which typically lasts 1-2 days.
There may also be a slight bruising which can last 5-7 days and can be easily covered by makeup
