Fillers …. hyaluronic acids
We name them differently. But why do we really need them? It is just because with the years our face loses from its volume. The fat tissue breaks down, part of the bone structure disappears, the thickness of the skin decreases. To compensate for all these processes and to be able to withstand the impact of time, we inject bio-compatible products into the skin, under the skin, or recently even under the muscles of the face, namely – on the facial bones. Through this technique we not only fill a given wrinkle, but shape the face shape for a long time.
I use several different types and brands of fillers in order to give my patients the best possible. I most often inject the products of the Swiss brand Teosyal. A year ago they introduced their so-called “dynamic fillers” into their portfolio. They are hyaluron with a longer molecule that can be used to correct fine mimic wrinkles such as those on the forehead where only Botox has been used so far. Another unique dealer / filler in their wide range is Redensity 2 – a combination of hyaluron and biostimulant, which is successfully injected into the lacrimal fold of the lower eyelid to correct the faint and sad view of the face.
With a clever combination of fillers, mesotherapy, botox and laser procedures, I succeed in restoring the freshness of my patients’ faces and maintain it over time.
Dermal fillers can be used for a variety of reasons related to aging, including:
- Adding volume and smoothing the deep wrinkles from the nose to the mouth (called nasolabial folds)
- For thin lips and smoothing of vertical lines around the edges of the lips.
- Putting them in the cheeks to improve their shape
- Filling slumps under the eyes.
The filler is injected subcutaneously through a needle or cannula. Anaesthesia is made for patient comfort. The procedure takes about 15 minutes. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally extracted product, and the risk of causing allergic reactions is very low. In some cases redness and swelling may occur. Swelling may last up to 2 days. Post-injection results are immediate, but the duration of action is 8 to 18 months, depending on how quickly the body absorbs hyaluronic acid, what the product is and where it is injected.
The Difference Between Fillers and Botox:
Although the two procedures include injections, Botox is most often injected around the forehead and the wrinkles around the eyes to stop the movement of the muscles, resulting in wrinkles. This has nothing to do with the smoothing action of the dermal fillers, which are injected into the sinking under the eyes, the nasolabial wrinkles, the mouth.
Since they work differently, many people choose to combine botox and dermal fillers, whereat the face noticeably rejuvenates its appearance.
In addition to fillers that restore volume and smooth wrinkles (such as hyaluronic acid), there are also fillers that stimulate the formation of their own collagen – biostimulating fillers. We use Ellancee. It has a component that fills the volume and a component that stimulates the formation of its own collagen. Its action lasts 2-3 years. Ellancee is especially suitable for patients with thin skin and plenty of fine wrinkles on the face.
