As it matures, a process of volumetric loss of subcutaneous fat in the face takes place that can highlight wrinkles and creases and cause sagging of facial areas.
Injection of hyaluronic acid or other fillers (fillers) not only fills the wrinkles and creases but also improves the contours and restores lost volume.
In addition, the fillers are also used to shape the face, such as enlarging the lips or shaping the cheekbones and jaw line.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the human body and therefore the body “accepts” it without the side effects of rejection, allergy or infection.
The injected acid “mimics” its natural action in the body and absorbs fluids (water) that fill in wrinkles and restore volume.
Common areas for hyaluronic acid injection are,
Nazolabial Wrinkles – Wrinkles on the sides of the nose that lead to the lip
Wrinkle on the sides of the lip (marionate)
The perioral wrinkles in the area above the upper lip, between the lip and the nose, known as the “barcode”
The depressions under the eyes
Highlighting the cheekbones
When is the result expected?
The volume filling is immediate so the initial result can be seen immediately, however only after a few days can the final result be seen after the side effect of the injection which is redness and slight edema passes and the acid begins to absorb fluids and stabilize.
Types of acids
There are plenty of acids on the market from different companies with each company having different acid proximities.
At each thickness treat different areas of the face.
When the acid is thicker / harder it is used to fill massive volumes such as the cheekbones.
Thinner acids are used for wrinkles in the area around the mouth and under the eyes.
There are very thin (aqueous) acids that are used for hydration of the skin only and not for filling such as skin buster
